54 + 9 w/u = 63 mins
Coming to the realization that going heavy or to failure on incline press 3x/week isn't optimal. So today I started with shoulder press and heavy v-bar pulldowns. 3 sets each. Shoulder press was good. When this was a priority movement, I'd get 10 reps w/ 65#'s. Got 8 and dropped to 60's because I wanted to keep reps around 8. Pulldowns were heavy, but good. So for chest, I just did incline fly's. I did go heavy though. Normally I use 35#DB's as an accessory. The heavier weight felt good. Supersetted fly's with DB rows.
Then I did skull crushers and weighted crunches. I thought I'd get better reps with 90#'s on skull crushers since I hadn't done a lot of pressing. Had to drop weight after 1st set. Crunches were good. I bumped the weight on incline curls and got good reps. Supersetted with seated lateral/rear delt DB work. Very good WO today.
I weighed 174.4 this morning. Trying to eat around maintenance on this "diet break". It's hard on days like yesterday where I biked 22 miles.
