Sets x Reps (Weight, if listed)
BB Curls: 1 Warmup; 2x10; 1x8; 1x2 dropset 1x10 ...I went for a different rep scheme today. I hit a good warmup then a light set right afterwards. Then a good set of 10 and then a solid set of 8 with 115. Bumped it up to 135 and got a good solid 2 before doing an immediate dropset of 10 more reps with a lighter weight with double pumps at the top. I also moved my grip each set (i.e. one would be narrow, next would be SW, next would be wide, etc). I was good to go after these...
Reverse Ez Bar Incline Curls: 1x10 ...believe it or not, someone took the bench and laid it down and started doing flys on this while I went to add more weight to the bar... oh well felt good for that one set though
Ez Bar Scott Curls: 2x10 ...did these with double pumps on each rep and on the last set and the last rep I did 4 1/4 burns at the top. Biceps were done.
Tricep Pushdowns: *used short chambered bar* 3 Warmup Sets; 3x10 (STACK + 45lb) Tris felt good and full here.
Weighted Partial Dips: 1x10 (BW + 45lb); 1x8 (BW +70lb) ...Got these with no problems...for the last set I got to 8 and didn't wanna "force" 'em so I did a quick dropset with BW partial dips to finish it out...
Ez Bar Skullcrushers: Warmup; 2x10 ...felt really good, smooth and controlled, upped it up in weight. Tris/Bis felt great.
Kneeling Cable Crunches: 100 reps ...I did these very slow, controlled, and squeezed/held contractions... I was feeling 'em..
Woodchoppers: 3x12 each side ...went heavier than usual and really killed 'em. Felt great...kept form tight and my abs were burning all over.
Wrist Rollers: 4 reps...these were killer... 4th rep took a lot out of my forearms
Seated BB Wrist Curls: 2 sets ...kept 'em slow and focused on contractions
-Arms felt full, solid, strong, and looked good. I can tell I worked 'em good as it was a) tough to carry my water jug, b) tough to drive home (i drive a stick shift), and c) they feel tight/tender as I sit here typing this. Was a really good session though.
-My legs are sore from yesterday. Definitely a good sign. Gonna get a lot of rest this weekend (after my test tomorrow morning). Rest and food.
-Today I have a few cases to handle at the law firm and then heading back here to finish studying for the MPRE. Wish me luck tomorrow.
-Hope everyone enjoys the weekend.
-My birthday is Tuesday. I'll be even older
