Another upper body lift:
after reading http://www.defrancostraining.com/articl ... -equal.htm
I decided that I should build some sarcoplasmic hypertrophy, as that will be quite a break from the on/off myofibrillar training I've been doing. (Pecs not of impressive size can bench 4/3 my bodyweight.
So today's workout was supposed to be:
Bench-3s 15r 175lbs
Bench-dropset to failure 155lbs
Narrow grip Barbell Curl-1s 15r 55lbs
Wide grip Barbell Curl-1s 10r 55lbs
As many decline sit ups as I can do, unweighted (doesn't hurt my back).
I was not entirely successful...
1st set of bench I got all 15 reps, 2nd set only 11, 3rd set only 8 (perhaps more time needed for rest), dropset only managed 4 or so. But the pump was unbelievable! Nothing I had previously done came close to it (including sets of 5-6 with 225lbs). Very different feeling from after a normal bench session.
21's and barbell curls went according to plan, and I lost count of my sit-ups, though I estimate about 100 consecutively.
Tomorrow is now my lower body day (after test). Friday is another upper body. Saturday will be plyo's... seriously this time. And Sunday will be rest day.
