Nice job on the 45lb dips man! you'll catch me at this rate, I struggle with dips! Make sure you ice your knee/shoulder after even remotely working them - injuries suck! And training pictures?

Had a decent chest workout this morning. Completely different time from when I usually workout, but may become the norm now that I am at a mostly 24 hour gym.

A little bit of jump rope

Trx stretches

Stretching

Incline BB Press:
45x12, 140x12, 155x6, 160x4

I am always afraid to go all out on BB press when I dont have a spotter. Still had gas in the tank.

Incline DB Press:
25sx12, 40sx12, 60sx10 (whoops, lost my balance), 75sx5, 65sx8

The dude that was working at the gym kept talking to me the whole time I was working out. Kind of threw me off a little bit.

8 BW dips

Pec Dec: (fst-7)
110x15, 110x15, 110x15, 110x11 (fail), 95x15, 95x15, 95x15

Holy shit these were agonizing today.

DB Russian Twists:
20x40 reps, 30x40 reps

Bicycle Kicks:
3 sets of 50

Side Raises:
25 lb plate x 24, 45 lb plate x 24

I think I did 5-6 sets of 100 jump ropes as fast as possible.

330 AM cardio session.

Basically just practiced double under jump ropes for an hour. They are so damn difficult. I have welts all over my arms and legs but I got quite a bit better at them. I could do one when I started and finished doing 6 consecutively.

Do you find that kind of work has any negative effect(s) on your recovery abilities?

It is not as bad now that I work 12 hour shifts. When I worked 24 it was absolutely holding me back.

Did some solo arms today.

Jump rope for 10 mins

Stretch

Standing Alt. DB Curls:
22.5sx12, 30sx12, 40sx12, 42.5sx2

Dips:
BWx9, +25 lb plate x 6, +45 lb plate x 4, BWx9, +25 lb plate x 6

Went up by one rep on the 25 lb set, and two reps on the 45 lb plate set from last week.

Standing High Pulley Cable Curls: (per each arm)
25x12, 45x12, 75x4

Flat Neutral Close Grip DB Tricep Press: (palms facing each other)
30sx12, 35sx12, 40sx12, 47.5sx12

Had to do these because both decline benches were being used. These actually felt pretty awesome and didnt bother my shoulder at all.

EZ BB Curls: (FST-7)
7 sets of 40 lbs for 15 reps, only 30 seconds recovery between sets and stretching/flexing during "recovery"

Same weight as last week. Going to up to a straight 45 lb bar since the EZ BBells only go in increments of 10. Jumping that high on FST-7 sets is impossible.

Tri Rope Pushdowns: (FST-7)
7 sets of 45 lbs x 15 reps, same as above

Actually made it all 7 sets without lowering weight on these unlike last week.

Wrist Curls: (FST-7)
40 lb EZ BB x 4 sets of 15, then lowered to 30 lb EZ BB for last 3 sets of 15

+10 lbs on first 4 sets from last week.

About 10 minutes of jump rope after.

Going back for more tonight with my friend for some box jumps and jump rope.

Went back for more pain tonight.

Lots of jump ropes/box jumps and goofing working on tricks waiting on my friend to get his ass to the gym.

We did a whole bunch of abdominal excercises. So many different ones I can barely remember.

Then I tried to see how many speed rope jumps I could do in 30 seconds. Well, I was so tired I couldn't even make it 30 seconds at maximum speed but my pace was about 120-130 in 30 seconds. I believe the world record is 162 in that time.
