Upper body day. For anyone who read the thread on cutting with splits, I decided to try the workout Fazc posted, just for kicks. It was actually a good deload for me. Next time I do upper body I'll go back to training to get my bench up. Still trying for that 315!
The program was simple; 3x10 of basically every upper body movement I can do in my garage. I'm not even sure if I'm going to remember everything I did, but I'll give it a go.
Close, opposing grip pullups-
Incline plyo pushups
Feet supported wide grip pullup-
Extended ROM pushups*-
Close grip chinups-
*I put my feet on a bench and hands on my sawhorse safety rails, then did pushups while allowing my chest to sink between the rails as far as possible.
I kept my rest periods very short. Much shorter than I've been doing for the last few weeks. The pump was awesome, and the session was very enjoyable, with much less stress on my joints by keeping the weights lighter. I'm definitely going to make use of this programming in the future, but for now my goal is strength, so it's back to heavy sets under 5 reps next time.
Current PRs at 242, raw w/ wraps- 525, 355, 605, 1485
