Spike Day 1: 09/26/2009

Since my spike day is on Saturday, I started the diet with a bang by pigging out. My favorite way to start a diet. Tomorrow I will weigh in.

My workout went well today. I decided to do some German Volume Training. My pecs were fried, to say the least.

I was determined to find a variation of the DB flye that didn't fry my shoulder. And I found one. Instead of using palms facing each other, I turned my hands so my thumbs were facing each other. Then I concentrated on keeping my back clenched and elbows down like a bench press setup.

This really relieved the shoulders, and I could feel the chest working. I'm not much of an isolation work guy, but I thought I would put aside my stubborn ways and try something new. The only issue I had was using too light of a weight. I am calling them "Shaw flyes" in my log so you can differentiate this exercise from standard flyes.

My chest (and triceps) was fried though.

135 x 10/10/10/10/10/10/10/8/7/7
