Start Date: Tuesday, September 30th
Today was arms day. A friend of mine was there and was doing arms as well, so I jumped in with him. Pretty standard, strong workout. I generally push through pretty well, and I added a few reps to some previous maxes, which means next week, I'll hopefully go up a bit. Finished up with barbell curl drop sets (pain) and barbell tricep extensions >>> failure/close-grip presses >>> failure (further pain). Definitely excited about the next few weeks!
Note: Diet has been pretty on the ball for the past few weeks, so the only major change that I've made for this cycle is the addition of approximately 800 calories or so. I'm all about dairy, so this more or less amounts to an additional evening protein shake and more 1% milk. I found something awesome at the store, though: Wal-Mart has Jenny-O Pre-cooked 97% fat free Turkey Breast for a good price; I normally don't go for that sort of thing because of the crazy sodium levels, but a full 8 ounces (about 50g protein) was still below the 50% dv mark; I don't eat salt with any other meals with exception to what is in my weight gain shakes (BSN TrueMass), so this turns out to be kick ass. Shoulders tomorrow! Hell yeah.
