Sumo Deadlift 285
5/185, 5/215, 245 x 7
Shrugs worked up to 225 for 10
The deadlifts felt incredibly easy, but didn't want to push it too hard, plus I rarely go over 7-8 reps on these. I need to stop slacking on the Chins, the more often I do them, the better, so I may have to start doing them in between pressing exercises again. Kind of sucks that I used to be able to pump out sets of 15-20 like they were nothing when I was 170, now I'm five and done.
I changed the way Im doing BB Rows, which is why I dropped the weight to embarrassingly low levels. I actually watched a girl row on one of those plate loaded row machines 145 for sets of 10, and this upset me. Anyway, I'm trying to get away from the usual gym way of having six inches of range of motion on the rows for heavy weights. My upper body was parallel with the floor for these, and they felt good. Gonna start going a little heavier next time out.
The Shrugs sucked, and I've done much heavier, but after deadlifts, chins, and rows, my grip is beyond fried so it's hard to hold onto even 225.
I want to write in each log entry something hilarious that I saw at the gym, since there's always plenty of entertainment for in between sets.
Today's eventful day included a man who had decent sized arms asking for a spot on Curls, lots of bros half squatting 115 in a smith machine weighing all of maybe 150 pounds, and some guy doing behind the neck presses with the fixed EZ Curl bars, why he couldn't have gone over to the squat racks (which are suprisingly always open) and done these with a regular barbell, I have no clue. Maybe this is some new bodybuilding angle technique that I've yet to pick up on.
Off from the gym until Monday, and ready to gorge myself with pasta, chicken, and a bean dip with about ten million calories.
