Today I decided to join the football team in one of their ‘weight-training’ workouts, as I usually workout alone but wanted to get to know the coach. It was disgraceful. They had five warm-up sets for bench, one work set with everyone in the group using the same weight, leg presses, lat pulldowns, cable-curls supersetted with pushdowns, and shrugs.
I started doing some power cleans but then the ‘trainer’ gave me the routine that I mentioned above. I subbed chins for lat pulldowns and got looks of astonishment (I was only doing sets of eight). I cut out early so it wouldn’t interfere with my ability to perform my next 7/5/3 Wave workout. Some players were actually doing Smith-machine quarter squats. Now I can see why our football team never goes far.
