Sat 7/23 - Upper (Excellent WO, great Incline (PR?)

Workout: Snap Fitness
(85#DBInc)10,8,8,7* Excellent

79 + 6 = 85 mins

Unbelievable WO today at Snap Fitness. I dieted hard all week and after 5 days of dieting my WO’s usually suffer at least a little bit, which is why today felt so great. We started with DB incline and close grip pulldown supersets. Last WO I pushed to failure on the first set, and today I was determined not to do that. I was hoping to get 3x8. I got 10 on the first set and wasn’t very near failure. Next 2 sets were 8’s and the 4th set I almost had the 8th rep up but needed assistant from Sarah so it goes as 7 in the log. This may have been my best effort/result with 85#DB’s ever. Certainly the best in a very long time. Last week was really good (11 reps on first set), but I faded after that set and had to drop the weight on the 4th set.

Next we did 2 sets of iso incline and DB rows. Both were good and I went heavier on rows. Then 2 sets of fly’s and seated rows. Wasn’t really feeling the seated rows in my back much. I think just a function of my back being fairly fatigued. Maybe arms were taking over?

Then we did 3 heavy sets, plus a back-off of skull crushers with some incline/hammer curl combo sets. Finished up with some rear/lateral delt work supersetted with a plank/crunch combo. Excellent WO.

I weighed 171.2 this morning. Feeling good.
