Better day...(sort of)
Today was heavy day for Shoulders and Back, and I am very pleased. I even decided to add some SLDLs for fun... No failures either..all movements successful...even though I know I could have gone higher, I need to stay on pace, low and slow to properly build without burning out after a few weeks like I usually do..
F**K!!! Just realized I screwed up some rep counts, but no big deal.. I thought the reps were low, so I held them all longer...oh well, will be sure to not do this again next week..
anyway, today went like this :
Same as yesterday, but only 1 snack..didn't have time to eat, real busy at work..
Seated Low Row - 115 x5, 130 x3, 150 x1 - This is where I messed up. I was supposed to do 5 reps of each weight, not 5/3/1...
Bent BB Row - 135 x5 reps x2 sets, 150 x5 reps x1 set. Starting to like this move..
SLDL - 150 x10 reps x3 sets - Started with regular DLs, but felt I was leaning too far forward, so started SLDLs and had more control..
Standing OH Press - 95 x5 reps x2 sets, 105 x5 reps x1 set
DB Lat Raises - One of my weakest points..did a mix of side and front with 10 and 20 DBs - Kept the same as light day because I have no other DBs yet...
BB Shrugs - 200 x5 reps x5 sets - Love these, but grip was killing me afterwards. Need to find a way to grip better, or use straps...
Overall, I rate today an 8/10. Pretty good day, could have been better, could have been worse...
