tuesday, November 9, 2010 Week 3, day 4
BB bench press 190lbs x 3 X 3 X 3 X3 X 3 stopped
situps 30lbs X 3 X 3 X 3 X 3 X 3 X 3
Bent arm pullovers 85lbs x 3 X 3 X 3 X 3 X 3 x 3
deadlifts 125lbs X 5, 135lbs X 5, 145 x 5, 155 X 5, 165 X 5
Sort of good. The first 3 moves I suppose I am to speed rep. With bench, I only raised the weight 5lbs, but found stabilizing the path of motion a challenge and had to admit by the 5th I have a slight left pectoral strain. fuck! I seem to remember having a minor hamstring strain and still letting my ego drive towards targets until it was really buggered. Also, with me doing feather rehab weights for that I was left to revel in upper body work, so there, I am a bit pissed. It is only 2 days until I hit chest heavy with dumbbells on the maximal strength day, but that I find I do much slower, so I will play it by ear. Maybe some recovery.
All that being said, I romped through and easily reached my deadlift target without a glimmer of any hamstring issues. No analgesic/antiinflammatory in the longest time, so it is a curious trade off.
Edit: Oh, and this is supposedly the end of this program. I don't feel like I need to stop it, it is only 3 weeks. the first week was more of an orientation week, as it is a big shakeup from previous work. Still, I must be mindful of my left pectoral muscle.
