I went with 2 scoops of Prefight PWO this morning because I was 1 rep maxing bi's and tri's.

1 Rep max Bicep and Tricep Day

Stats
Weight: 186.8
Location: Anytime Fitness
Mood: Just Average
Length: 1 hour 30 minutes

Warm Up mix of ballistic and static stretching
Intra: Grape Infinite Force


Primary Lifts

CLOSE GRIP BENCH
*this week, we are 1 rep maxing all the major muscle groups. I've never personally NEVER done a true 1 RM test, so there is definitely a learning curve. There are so many to go about it, still searching for what MINE is.

bar x 10 reps
135lbs x 10 reps
185lbs x 3 reps
205lbs x 1 rep
225lbs x 1 rep
235lbs FAIL
230lbs FAIL
230lbs x 1 rep

Considering I started these 4 weeks ago at 135lbs for 15 reps, I should be happy about progress. However, just last week I did 225 x 6 reps for 4 sets. I just could never get into the groove. I was taking long 3-5 minute rests between attempts, which looking back was wasteful. I never could get "into it". As a first attempt at Maxing Out. I kinda consider this a fail. I think I can do more, given the right method!


STRAIGHT BARBELL CURL
*still getting the hang of methodology. I think this went a little better, or at least I felt better about it.

bar x 10 reps
65lbs x 10 reps
85lbs x 5 reps
95lbs x 3 reps
105lbs x 2 reps
115lbs x 2 reps
125lbs x 2 reps
135lbs x 2 reps
140lbs x 1 rep
145lbs FAIL

I was done at this point. That was actually kind of alot of reps total, but you know what, it felt a hell of a lot better than triceps did. Last week I was at 105lbs x 6 reps for 4 sets. It felt absolutely freakin fantastic to throw the big boy plates on the bar at 135 and above!!!
