Friday, Nov 5/2010 - Month One, Day Sixteen, Military Press
The final deload workout, severely underestimated Military Press. Not a movement I usually do… one that will be a permanent part of my routine
Warmup - stationary bike, stretches and foam rolling… Another thing that is a permanent part of my routine, foam rolling. Hurts like an SOB, makes you sweatt, but really improved next day mobility and recovery!
MT bar x 15
75 x 10 - this was weird, normally this would a DB in each hand!
95 x 5
115 x 16
Again with strangeness of deload week. The weight is easy, the reps just sort of flow… that is until all the blood drains out of my arms!
Pull ups - various hand positions 40 reps total,
Incline DB press 5 x 12, 65 lbs
Bent BB Rows 5 x 10, worked up to 185 lbs
Crunches and leg raises, while I waited for the GF to finish her workout
And that’s the end of de-load! I get it, I need it… I’ll do it. But I just don’t have to enjoy it! Nothing sexy about the actual work outs. Who likes light weights that hurt?
But… the GF says she likes it just fine! Something about the mass, the power and the pump…
