Week 2 Day 1:
Afternoon workout which meant I had more energy than on Sunday. Felt pretty good going in and the result was a damn solid workout. Ab work still making me more tired than the compound lifts lol!
Squat: 60x 5 80 x 5, 102.5 x 5 x 3: Not as easy as last week but I am loving the new wider stance. I can really get down lower and use hip power to drive myself up. I think I am going lower than before actually and I am very happy with my technique. Good sets.
Bench: 50 x 5, 65 x 5, 77.5 x 5 x 3: Bench as always, felt a bit heavy though I am happier with the flat foot stance. I still make an arch and my body is fairly tight as I lift. 10kg below my best 5 rep performance but felt heavier. Still, I was happy because they were good reps.
Barbell Row: 40 x 5, 50 x 5, 57.5 x 3: Underhand grip was nice. Smooth and easy.
Pull ups: B/W x 5*, 4: I am claiming a PR here. Just got chin above bar level I think for number 5. Surprised me actually. Need to learn how to kip properly!
Weighted Push Ups: B/W + 10kg: 2 x 15: I put the 10kg plate on my lower back because it is steadier there. Should I try and keep it mid or upper back. Liked the way these felt.
Decline sit ups: 25*, 25(rest pause 14, 7, 4) *PR for decline sit ups but my quads get more of a battering even though my legs stay still, hooked underneath a bar.
Rope Pulldowns: Pin 16: 2 x 25
Woodchops: 12.5kg Dumbbell: 3 x 10
Dumbbell side bend: 22.5kg: 1 x 20: These are good for my grip too!
Good start to the week, roll on Thursday!
