Sun 2/7 - Push day

Workout: LA Fitness

73 + 13 w/u = 86 mins

Today was push day of the pull/push weekend split. I started with incline. Before going to the gym, I was thinking I'd bump up to 90#DB's this morning for a few sets. During warmups, I realized that wasn't going to happen. Yesterday was a real heavy and high volume pull day, and my arms were just fatigued. During warmups they felt heavy just carying them from the rack to the bench, especially in my forearms. I decided to stick with 85#DB's. First set was ok from a rep perspective, but the DB's just didn't feel stable. I almost dropped weight after that set, but decided to do another set and got 6 reps. Dropped to 80#DB's and they felt much better. Still heavy, but not unstable. I got 3 more good solid sets of 7 reps. Then I increased the angle of the incline 2 notches and did 3 more sets.  A little disppointed I didn't get sets across with 85#DB's, but still very good work.

Next I did incline cable fly's supersetted with heavy crunches. Fly's were good. Dropped the weight after 2 sets to keep reps up and last 2 sets were drop sets with short rest. Good volume.  Next I did skull crushers supersetted with decline crunches. Finished up with pullovers and iso shoulder press.  Solid WO.

I weighed 177.2 this morning. I had a real active day yesterday moving things out of the basement and garage as I prepare for the upcoming move. I don't think I was over maintenance, but wieght jumped from lots of carbs I guess.
