Workouts Of The Week

I'm going to change my program up a little, but this week was more of an experimentation week to see what I want to do.I decided to stick with jerks and then push presses on Monday. Then I did eccentric focused pullups, which were really hard! They fatigued my forearms a lot more, and I also used thicker handles. Next, I tried something new and supersetted farmer's walks and chest presses, which was also very taxing on the grip. I fnished up with glutes and some abs.The dragonflies were crazy hard this week, I guess because I haven't done them in forever!

1)Clean and jerk: 115x3/120x3/120x3/ Push press: 105x3x5
2)Eccentric focused pullups: 10x6/5/4/4/ 0x5(did one muscle up before every set of pullups)

Weights felt pretty heavy today but that's to be expected after a deload. I went slightly lighter on deads than I was supposed to; about 82% of my max, but I felt that was what was tolerable with good form.I supersetted glute ham raises with some really light split squats, then finished up with more
glutes, abs and calves.

Bench felt pretty good. I wanted to stay around 6 reps and not try to go crazy heavy.Everything else in the workout was just "fun" stuff, so nothing really to explain there.

1)Bench press: 95x6/105x6/110x6/110x6
2a)DB chest supported row: 40x3x10
2b)1 arm DB press: 35x3x7

5)EZ bar curls: giant set to 35 reps(15-20 second rests)

This workout was pretty good. My back was still sore from deadlifts Wednesday, but it didn't bother me on anything but the Bulgarian split squats. I did sumo style RDLs for the first time, and I really liked them! Felt them a lot more in my glutes. I was going to stay light on those, and then ended up using 155 my first set because I forgot I had the extra 10s on there from squats. Gotta love when that happens, haha.
