Mon 5/29 - Push (Great Incline)

Workout: Snap Fitness

63 + 7 = 70 mins

Felt pretty good during warmups, and after getting 12 reps with 80#DB’s on Friday, I really wanted to go heavier. My R shoulder issues make is so difficult to get heavy DB’s into place, but I should really be using 85-90#DB’s at this point because once I get them in place, I can get good reps/sets. Anyway, felt good and went with 85#DB’s and first sets were very good with 9 and 8 reps. 3rd set I’m calling 6, but did a 7th forced rep with assistance from Sarah. Then I dropped to 80#DB’s and did a 4th set. Got 6 reps and did a 7th forced rep with assistance.  Then we raised the angle of incline and did a working set plus 2 drop sets with about 15 seconds rest. This isa ton of volume for me and felt really good. Very pleased with the work here.

Then we did machine shoulder press with reverse crunches. Shoulder press was better than I thought it would be. I thought I might have to drop the weight after all the inclinepressing volume.  Then we did chest fly’s with crunch twists. Very good. Finished up with some triceps and lateral delt raises. Heavy triceps work is still very painful on myR elbow.

This ends a great series of workouts that went Upper, Long Hike, Pull, Push without a day off.  Time for a few days rest.

I weighed 174.2 this morning.
