Today was a pretty damn good arm workout day.

Jump rope warm up

Stretches

Standing Alt. DB Curls:
25sx12, 30sx12, 40sx10

Alt. DB Hammer Curls:
25sx12, 35sx12, 40sx12, 42.5sx10 (last two were with some jerking)

Threw some hammers in since its been months since I had done them.

BW Dips:
BWx9, +25x5, +45x3, BWx7, BWx9

These were pretty tough today. That 4th set was with basically no rest after the +45 set.

Standing High Pulley Cable Curls: (weight on each side)
30sx12, 60sx10, 75sx4 drop 30sx12

Close Neutral Grip Flat DB Tricep Press:
25sx12, 40sx12. 50sx11.5

Dammit I couldnt get the 12th rep up!

Standing BB Curls: (FST-7)
45 lb straight BB x 7 sets of 15 reps (+5 lbs from last week)

Much harder with a straight bar rather than EZ curl bars.

Tricep Rope Pushdowns: (FST-7)
50 lbs x 5 sets of 15, last 2 sets lowered to 45 x 15 (+5 lbs on first 5 sets from last week)

Wrist BB Curls: (FST-7)
40 lb BB x 7 sets of 15

Finally able to stay at 40 for all 7 sets. It was a battle but I did it with a few rest pauses.

If I had to sign my something to save my life I don't think I could after this workout because I couldn't grip a pen when I got done with those wrist curls. My forearms were so swollen.

Hey man you are kicking a$$ in there! Great to hear you're back training legs, and it sounds like everything else is coming up as your weight goes down - best of both worlds, yeah buddy!

Went to the gym at like 3 am and did some jump rope.

Then i did some pull up tests to see how muchy strength has increased.

I did some door sill pullups. I like these because your fingers are being utilized a lot more. I was able to fo about 4 in a row for 3-4 sets.

Then I switched over to some neutral grip pullups for 4 reps x 4 sets.

Didnt try any chin ups since I had just worked biceps the day before.

Well this had me excited since I have never been able to do actual pull-ups before.

Smith Incline Press:

Well i guess i pulled something yesterday/this morning and didnt know until I went to workout legs today. Have a terrible pain in my interior hip extensor/groin during squats. Hell it hurt to just about everything so i just walked for like 15 minutes and then came home. This sucks ass. Hopefully it heals in a few days. My back is so insanely sore from yesterday.

My workouts have gotten all order this week.

Did bi/tri today even though i did chest 2 days prior and back yesterday, so needless to say, I didnt move as much weight as I normally do.

DB Hammer Curls:
25sx12, 35sx12, 40sx8 drop 25sx12

Way down on these today

Close Neutral Grip DB Tri Press:

Well upped that by one rep suprisingly.

Standing EZ Curls: (FST-7)

Only had time for this and couldnt do my fst-7 of tri and wrist curls because the girl I came with wanted to leave.
