Thursday, May, 16th...

RDL Deadlifts 3x5 (+)
Warm Up- 135x10
235x5, 235x5, 235x5

I normally do 3 sets of 6 on this lift but decided to just do 3 sets of 5. I like this a little more after being into this routine. I haven't done this workout or movement in quite some time and I feel I did well. I felt strong even though my legs were shaking lol. Last workout I was only able to do 2 sets of 6 for 235lbs but today I did 3x5 of 235lbs so feeling good about this.

Powertec Machine Leg Extensions 2x10 (+5lbs)
75x10, 75x10

Boy do I feel it in my quads with this movement. My legs were shaking with this movement as well and I really enjoy the feeling I get with these. Progressed in weight and it felt good.

Powertec Machine Lat Pulldowns 3x10 (+5lbs)
120x10, 120x10, 120x10

This is another movement where I just feel every rep in my back. I can feel it when I'm pulling and when I slowly let out the negative. My mind/muscle connection with this movement is just great I feel and my form is of course great. I was able to increase the weight by 5lbs and it was challenging and felt again great.

E-Z Barbell Curls 2x10 (-2 reps)
90x8

I figured from me missing days I would probably go down in some movement and it happened to be this. I've been struggling to get this movement past 90lbs for 2 sets of 10 and I only did one set. I decided after the first set and going down in weight that it's time for something different. So I moved on to another bicep movement at the end.

Powertec Machine Preacher Curls 2x10
50x12, 50x12

I moved on to this movement and I REALLY felt in it my biceps. It was a great changeup that I'm going to stick with for a little bit of time. I got a great pump and could feel every rep in my biceps. I was aiming for 10 reps here but managed to do more since this was my first time doing these in a while and since I obviously wasn't sure which weight to start with.

Overall:

I know I was supposed to workout a lot sooner than this and I missed a few days but I was finishing my last semester at my community college and I am all done finals and should be set to graduate with my associates degree on the 23rd so I'm proud of myself for that. I shouldn't be missing no more workouts but obviously cant guarantee anything since you don't know what life brings at you each day but my life was a little busy so I just got done what I got done and was able to get my workout in today. I'm hoping that I can do my upper/pressing movement workout tomorrow but if not then I'll be doing it on Saturday.

Something to note with this workout it has me working out three days a week but I may condense that down to hitting each workout 4 days a week. My schools out and I'm not really going to be all the busy so I may have the time for it. So I'm looking forward for that so more than likely I will be working out tomorrow. See you all tomorrow. Have a good night!

Thanks.

Saturday, May, 18th

Flat Dumbbell Bench Press 3x5 (-1 rep)
Warm up (Powertec Machine Flat Bench)- 90x20, 180x7
80x5, 80x4, 80x5

Honestly I'm not disappointed at all with this lift. I haven't done this workout and movements in over two weeks I believe so I'm surprised I was even able to do as much as I did. I wasn't able to get the 5th rep on the 2nd set but if I wanted to go to failure I probably could have. On the last set that last rep was to failure. I'm trying to avoid going to failure but it's no big deal right now. Happy though that I just basically stayed the same on this movement. Next time I will keep the weight the same and go from there.

Weighted Dips 4x8 (+2.5lbs)
52.5x8, 52.5x8, 52.5x8, 52.5x8

I was able to move up 2.5lbs with this movement and I had quite the pump in my triceps after all of these. It felt really good and smooth all around.

E-Z Barbell Upright Rows 2x8 (+)
107.5x8, 107.5x6

My left wrist was really bothering me bad on this movement for some reason. I was able to get all 8 reps on the first set but it was brutal and on the last set I failed 2 reps short of my goal. I think next time I do this workout I will be replacing this movement with dumbbell lateral raises. It really bothered my left wrist like I said bad and I'll just swap it out to give this movement a break.

Triceps Pushdowns 2x10 (+2.5lbs)
100x10, 100x10

I managed to keep progressing with this movement and it feels really good finishing my triceps off at the end with this movement. Not much to say except I believe instead of doing triceps pushdowns twice a week I'm going to use a different triceps movement on the other day such as: skull crushers or triceps extensions.

Overall:

I'm very happy I was able to pretty much progress on everything or stay about the same since I haven't don't this workout in over two weeks. Feeling pretty good besides my left wrist that has some weird pain to it. This isn't the first time this has happened I normally just work through it so it's really not that big of a deal. I worked for my fathers moving company yesterday and that obviously doesn't help with your body so again not too worried about it since this has happened before. I have some Animal Flex supplement that I can take for my joints that I may just go ahead and start and see how it benefits me. Also I was going to workout yesterday and I talked about condensing this routine down to 4 times a week instead of 3 but I'm just going to stick with the layout and give my body the rest. Not going to get fancy and just go with the flow. I'll get to where I want to be eventually just need to keep progressing.

Hope everybody is having a great weekend.

Thanks!

Nice dips! Ditch the upright rows for sure if you're not feelin' them, plenty of options out there.

Thanks man. I read about people experiencing that and was worried but it seemed to really bother my left wrist. I have a little pain in it with other movements but nothing like it was with upright rows.
