Press (TM-42.5) superset with neutral grip chins:
20x5x2, 27.5x5, 32.5x5, 35x5, 27.5x5, 25x5x9 (paused)
15 total chins
My friend wanted to squat so rather than making him wait 10 sets for the rack I used the fixed barbells again. I figure the pause makes up for it being 2.5kg less and power cleaning it up/reverse curling gives me a bit of extra back and bicep work. Everything felt pretty fast and easy as it should do.
Lat pull down (50 reps with chins):
45x15, 13, 7
This weight feels pretty easy now, I'll use it as my go to weight instead of 40kg. I did these very slow and strict with different grips.
Horizontal leg press:
70x10, 100x10, 60x20x2
My friend was doing these so I did them instead of the exercise bike stuff. They really pumped up my quads and calves, it's definitely another exercise to add to the toolbox. I would imagine it's kind of similar to how pulling a sled would feel in your legs.
I've just realised as I'm writing this log I missed out the pressing assistance so I'll do some push ups in my room and add them on.
Push ups (50 reps):
x10, 10, 10, 10, 10 in 3:00 minutes
Wanted it done as quick as possible so aimed for 50 reps in sets of 10 and timed it. I finished the fourth set around 2:30-2:40 and decided I'd try go under three minutes. Clock was exactly three as I finished the last one. Pleasantly surprised with this.
