Second day of DC workout. “Enjoying” workouts so far. Like pushing the intensity for a set, stretching the muscle, and then going after the next muscle. Purposefully keeping sets higher in reps at the moment as I know weight will be increasing quickly.


#109

A2:
Dips+70#: 8-5-4
Standing DB shoulder press 60#: 8-4-3(held mid position on way down on last rep).
CG bench 155#: 9-3-1. Slow negative. Failed on last two reps of last two sets.
Medium grip chins +10#: 13-6-4. Pause at top and slow negative
Barbell rows 135#: 10-5-3

Need to control negative more on chest and shoulders. Did it well on chins and CG bench.


#110

How many months have you now managed to stick to the plan? Close to 10? That’s a great achievement by itself! Keep going!

Reverse bb curls: 17-8-7

Tate press 40#: 13-8-8
Wide grip chins: 15-7-6
Deads 315# reset: 6; 285x9.
Controlled eccentric for every rep. Took a little longer than usual, 35 minutes, but had time to spare. Surprised at how fewer reps I had on db bench, but think I took them much more controlled on way down.


#115

B1:
Drag curl 75#: 10-6-6. Much more controlled, felt muscle more. Also did curl higher.
Hammer curls: 50#x8; 45#x9
Good mornings 135#: 8, pulled every muscle in lower back.
Split squats: 50#x20
Was not a great workout following good morning disaster. Back was tight/sore from deadlifts other day and should have warmed up more. Need to find better hamstring exercise for this day. The DB sldl work well but almost out of weight, and after forearm exercise grip is kinda shot.
