I’m finally starting to put up some numbers I’m not embarrassed to post, so I’m going to start a new log. Feel free to comment, encourage, or clown- I can take it.
Face Pulls/ Cuban Press-warm up
Bench Press- flat
Lat Pulldowns, wide
Seated Rows, machine-weight per side
15X10X3- Wow, that’s harder than it seems…
Ran the rack from 85-25
~Shoulders were so pumped the curls were tough.
On bench press, my rep scheme is simply to try to get 25+ reps in 5-6 sets, increasing the weight every time I get the weight in 5 sets. Today, I got 26 reps in 6 sets. Last time I did bench, it was 245 for 6,6,6,6,4, so 28 reps in 5 sets- so this week I increased the weight. Dumbbells, I go a little higher reps before changing the weight.
Everything else, I play by ear, mostly alternating push and pull. I try to be mindful to increase weight and reps every time…
I like to change exercises every time I go into the gym, the only hard and fast rotation is barbell and dumbbell bench press, alternated, and deadlifts or rack pulls on Fridays.
