I don't want to write down twice what I do with my lifting. Instead I will recount the other stuff that happens while I work out. You know the clarity that comes from hefting the iron.
Yeh I probably shouldn't read Dave Draper's webpage ever again
Well yesterday was upper body. As I warmed up with my cleans, presses, rows, cubans, and scapular raises I felt the cobwebs were hanging in my head more than normal. Few minutes of skipping cured that, I might have to go and jump rope as break from analysing data.
I grabbed the dumbbells for some shoulder presses. Standing there repping I felt tired so I decided to turn them into push presses at the end of the set to keep it going. Fuck you shoulders and triceps, work harder next time!
The pullups and incline benches were a breeze by comparison. The pullups I added weight to without realising and managed to get more reps than previous weeks.
A few other exercises in their were taking their toll as I switched between exercise supersetting. I wanted to finish because it had suddenly gotten noticably colder, should have started when the sun was still up. The new exercise for shoulders, a dumbbell lateral extension, was a winner and will be back next week.
As I mixed my shake I felt relieved. Good to flush away the stress.
