Default 5/14/12 Press

OHP
5x65,80, 3x95, 5x100,120, 8x135

Incline Barbell Press
135x15,10 125x9, 115x11

Lat Pulldown
120x15,15,14,10

Lying Tricep Extension
75x10,10,10,7

Overall Workout Grade: B+


Notes:
1st 5/3/1 workout. I enjoyed it. Very fun. Different. Wendler breaks the rules when it comes to rep ranges and exercise volume, and initially I like it.
He called for 5 sets on assistance exercises, I only had 4 in me. There is no way in hell I was going to put any less than 115 on the incline press and even that was pushing it. I was surprised by how much the high rep range work fatigued me.
Another observation I noticed about the high rep range work was how much I felt it in my arms. More specifically I really felt the incline in my tris and the lat pulldown in my bis.
Anyway, on ward and upward.

Well, I haven't figured it out yet. NOV? No Other Vamps? No Ordinary Volume? Not Over Valued? Nothing Open Veekends?

Just sayin'

Oh, and nice volume on your triceps there. That's gonna hurt. Well done.
