Good workouts, concise and to the point.

Hit an arm workout a few days ago.

Here is todays workout though:

Jump rope

Incline BB Press:
140x5, 160x5, 180x5, 190x3

With 3 second pauses on chest:
135x6 x 4 sets

Machine Pec Dec:
90x12, 135x9, 180x6, 210x5, 240x3, 255x3

I hadnt done these in about three or four months and my strength on these has exploded since then. I think my max with poor form was 180x6, and I nailed 255x3 with near perfect form tonight. On the same machine I last did them on as well.

Jump rope intervals

Well I have been out of commision the last two days with nausea, fever, and diarrhea. When I woke up today I was feeling pretty good so I took a chance and went to the gym. Somehow after having no appetite and eating roughly half the calories I normally do, plus being dehydrated from the fever and diarrhea, my scale was saying I was 4 pounds heavier than I was two weeks prior. Must be some fluke.

Romanian Deadlifts: (raw, no chalk, braces, gloves, straps, or belts)
45x12, 140x5, 230x5, 280x5, 320x3, 280x5, 230x8, 140x20

Managed a new best with 320x3 even after being sick as a dog the two days prior.

BB Squats: (no belt)
45x12, 140x12, 190x12, 230x5, 230x5

Phew. I was whooped from the romanians. Feeling nauseated at this point.

Leg Press:
190x12, 370x12, 550x8, 640x6

My legs were so weak by the time I got to these. Near the point of vomiting.

Quick Bench workout while I had a break at work.

Incline BB Bench Press:
45x8, 135x5, 175x3, 215xfailed halfway up, 185x5, 195x2, 200x1, 135x20, 135x8 with three sec pause on chest on last set

I think I could have gotten 215 if i had a spot. Did not want to fail with no one around.

Just gonna play it by ear. I am so undecided on what I want to do. I really want to lost body fat percentages, but ten seconds later I think I want to do strongman type stuff. It is so much more fun than doing a dumbell curl.

Haha, I hear you. I sometimes feel like I am one of the few people that finds training biceps quite boring.
