Couple days of updates here.
Chest/triceps day was good and not so good.
I attempted 270x5 in my 5x5 routine for flat bench and was only able to get it up 3 times! That was the not so good part.
Everything else was awesome. I drank a scoop of about 20 minutes before the gym and after my bench press upset I was still able to focus on my muscle movements and get a nice pump going.
60x15, 60x12, 60x10, rest/pause, 3 more reps
+45x12, 45x10, 45x8, 45x6
120x10, 120x10, 110x12, 110x8, supersets down to 70
Narrow pushups to focus triceps:
3 sets of 10 reps
Felt amazing after this workout. I may need to adjust my 5x5 to a pyramid for a couple weeks to get past my plateau but everything else seems to be getting stronger.
Seated DB press:
50'sx12, 60'sx12, 65'sx10, 60'sx10, 60'sx8, 55'sx8
135x5, 185x5, 205x5, 240x5, 285x4 (after my 4th rep I said forget this. My knee sent a sharp pain down the entire side of my leg on the way up the last two sets. Pissed me off!!!!)
180x5, 270x5, 360x5, 450x5, 540x6 (not bad for my tall lanky ass!)
Standing smith rows:
175x12, 175x14, 205x12, 205x12, 205x10
That's all she wrote. Delts had a great pump, especially the rear delts, and my traps got a pretty decent workout from the rows. I had veins popping out of my front delts which is rare for me.
