wow. my lower back is completely wrecked. awesome. (not hurt, just super sore and telling me to shove off. so I will)
Started with Deads. I figured my new Abe Lincoln chin curtain would add about another 10lbs to my deadlift, but I didn't get the chance to find out too well...
135 x 10
225 x 5
275 x 3
315 x 1
335 x 1 (went up easy, but my back was toast. still is.)
355 x fail x 2 (hell, figured it was worth a shot. couldn't even get it off the ground. no confidence at all)
335 x fail (same story as above)
I'll give deads a week before revisiting them. I say that now. I give it until friday, at the longest...
Overhead squats (getting a feel for form and where I should have the weight centered. Not as hard as I thought they'd be)
95 x 6
100 x 6
105 x 6
110 x 6
115 x 6
120 x 6
125 x 6
130 x 3.
60lbs x 6 for 5 sets.
90lbs x 10 for 5 sets
side raises (i WAY prefer overhead pressing to lat raises...stupid back...)
27.5 x 10, 8, 8
alternating dumbell hammer curls
30lbs x 10/side for 3 sets
60lbs x 10, 10 10, 9, 10
75 (heaviest in the gym...) x 3 sets of 40 reps. (stupid back again. I'd rather use the heavy barbell.
Then I walked on the treadmill at 5mph at a 15% incline for 5 minutes while the football game started.
Now I'm icing my back about to watch Predator. The original one.
