Workouts of the Week

Bench felt good this week. Added an extra set with 105 for 6. Was able to 2 get sets of 8 this week with 35s for overhead dumbbell presses. Gonna go for the 40s next week! Had to switch up the rest of my workout a little just because I couldn't get to the pullup bars. So I just did cable rows between overhead presses and did my pullups last, unweighted.

1a)Bench press: 105x3x6/100x8
1b)Wide grip pullups on fat bar:3x5

4b)Pullaparts: 4x20

Squats felt great again. I worked up to 2 sets with 175, and got 6 on my second set for a new rep PR! Then I just did a couple back down sets, and was able to get 8 reps with 160. After that was good mornings and hip thrusts. Then I did the 2 minute amrap on leg press again...and it was even harder than last week! I BARELY managed to get an extra rep, but my legs were shaking afterwards. That was horrible. Finished up with back extensions, abductions, and abs.

2)Squats: 135x5/155x5/175x5/175x6/160x8/155x8

6a)Back extensions: 25x3x13
6b)Band abductions: 3x20
7)Hanging leg raises: 10/8/8/ Reverse crunch: 1x12

Went up a tad on snatches this week, but I really just use this movement as a warmup for my shoulders and CNS, so I don't really try to go super heavy. Then I did some regular barbell overhead presses, working up to a heavy set of 5 and then a couple of back off sets. I was able to get 2 sets of 6 with the 50s on chest press, hoping I can increase that to 8 soon! Everything else was just isolation/"pump stuff"! Fun times.
