Let’s not forget that it’s 9/11. Nuff said.
GMM Cycle 1, Upper 2:
over-warmup with 2x75;
AMRAP at 65# got 16 reps; 60 sec rest, then
AMRAP got 8 reps.
3/50 method, bodyweight only: 20, 18, 14. Total: 52.
3/50 method, 50#. 20, 18, 16. Total: 54.
Supposed to be 5xAMRAP. I haven’t done these since the appendectomy and tendon thing, so I chose to do 5x3 EMOM. It was challenging enough!
3/50 method, 25#. 20, 20, 20. Amazing pump; had never done this before.
I was so pumped from all the high-rep work I just had to do more, so
2 rounds of: 20 side raises with 10#, 20 seated tricep extensions with 30# ez bar.
Today felt amazing. I know the weights were low, but I really gave it everything on every single set and got a hellacious pump that I’ve never had before.
I wanted to puke after the second set of dips.
Next cycle I’ll keep the press the same, stick with bodyweight for dips, increase weight for rows, increase reps for chins, and increase weight for curls.
Now looking to start fresh Monday with cycle 2 and do that leg destruction again.
