When life has you down, what do you do to pick yourself back up? Personally, I like to workout or get myself organized. Organization helps me feel in control of my life and of my goals.
280×3 feet up bench.
Forgot to film the rest but this is one of my competition bench movements along with close grip which I like way more.
I'm doing feet up bench because its higher range of motion and I like it for building a big chest. It's also good to have large range of motion exercises in your program to keep your joints healthy. .
Yesterday was Back & Bicep Day. Here is the workout:
Weighted Pull Ups 5, 6, 8
Machine Low Row 6, 8, 10
Reverse Grip Lat Pull Down 6, 8, 10
Barbell Curl 3 sets 6-10
Incline DB Curls 3 sets 6-10
Machine Rear Delt Flys 3 sets 8-12
(On the first 3 exercises decrease the load by 10% each set and the other exercises maintain the same weight for all 3 sets)
Saturday front dubs at the mecca
Somehow I’m still managing to fit my workouts in for the week. The joy of the program I am on is that I’m able to achieve optimal results while only training 3 days a week. That makes it easy to maintain and allows me to have a good balance in my weekly schedule.
Also, big shoutout to @gymshark
for making unreal workout attire. This is the Superior Lightweight Seamless T-Shirt in black. Gotta love it 🙌🏼
today, just with a barbell. For those questioning the deadlift, it's a snatch grip deficit deadlift. This variation is the longest range of motion deadlift that I know of.
ROM = Muscle
Great for low and upper back hypertrophy.
I cant do stiff leg because it hurts my sciatic nerve a little.
Then did some J.M. presses. New to this exercise because of previous elbow issues. I think I'm doing it wrong.
Then some barbell rows for a density set.
I also did palov press and BFR leg extensions.
All in all, injuries are going away and long term stress is dissipating.
Slow but steady.
With challenge, comes change.
✖️Cable Lateral Raises✖️
Awesome exercise for the side delts. I like these better then dumbbells as I feel I have better control and can get better tension through the entire range of motion.
Some key points:
- try and reach out as far as possible instead of thinking of raising it “up” this will help eliminate trap involvement.
- try and maintain as much control as possible throughout, at the bottom don’t throw the weight up use your muscle to contract and drive, and keep that negative slow for max tension.
