An improvement on last week and it actually felt easier. Strength gains.. yay! Feelin like a 167lbs big man...
5x135lbsIncline DB Chest Press:
Was lucky enough to have my buddy to spot me and managed to reach a new PR on the last set. Feelin' strong today.
5x65lbs (spotted)One Arm DB Row:
5x80lbs (grip and form starting to fade!)Deadlifts:
Almost getting up to my max on the final set which I'm stoked with. After 4 weeks on this I'll probably just test out my 1 rep max and see how that goes. Heavier than last week on the last 2 sets - stoked!
Wasn't optimistic heading into the gym today but I realised that the weights were feeling lighter this week which was a huge boost. Gotta keep up with lots of protein this week so I can keep the intensity for this routine. I get what Derek says about using this workout for 4-6 weeks at a time, so I'll stop at 4 weeks just to be safe for my first go around. Luckily, the cafeteria at work has a salad bar where I pack a box full of veges (mostly based around broccoli and fresh edamame beans/chickpeas). We also have a great program where if you walk/bike/carpool to work you get money to go on your account. So, since I bike to work every day, I pretty much get free lunches. Yeaaah!
