It was like lifting in a morgue. Nobody grunted. Nobody farted. No one would look you in the eye... Oh well, I was grateful for the chance to get the lift in, even though it was a bit hurried and I had just stuffed myself with four New York Cheesecake Pancakes (really, it was the lightest thing on the IHOP menu). So it goes with vacation eating and workouts.
Up to now I have performed and listed my 'A' Routine workouts. Here starts my 'B' Routine workouts.
Work sets listed
Smith Flat BP
Cybex Incline Press
(70x10) - Very easy set, but I rested too much between the Incline Press and this exercise. I had to wait for the machine, then an old buddy started talking to me.
dc pec stretch - 20# about 35 seconds.
EZ Bar Preacher Curl
(65x6/2) - I start these from the contracted position, so a rep in "down-up."
Seated DB Curl
(20x7/2/1) - Kept elbows in and back. Almost like a Gironda body drag curl.
(70x4/1/1) - Last couple of reps were real, genuine snot producers.
dc bicep stretch - about 60 seconds.
Notes: I like chest/bicep day. I knew I would. It is easy for me to see and feel the muscles work. Not like the mystery which is back day. I just don't feel the groove on some of the back exercises. I worked legs last Thursday. I felt a little sore on Friday. I was nearly incapacitated on Saturday and Sunday. The extreme DOMS is something I didn't experience when I was squatting three times a week. I'll give it a couple of more rotations. If things don't improve, I may have to introduce an intermediate leg workout.
Very tired. I need to make my football picks and get to bed.
