Saturday was BACK day.
I keep all my movements long enough to get a good stretch, but just short enough so I don't engage my biceps too too much, nor my shoulders. I paid close attention to this because of my shoulder injury. I think everything went fine, my shoulder felt fine, and I got a lot of PRs.
1. Underhand BB rows: 265: 8,9,8
PR. Don't let the reps fool you. This was hard as hell for me. I really didn't get awesome form. i used a bit too much momentum. I'm going to work this weight next week.
2. T Bar Rows: 177.5: 8,8 180: 8
PR. These all felt real good. I controlled the weight well and I got a nice pump in my middle back, something thats usually pretty damn hard for me.
3. Pulldowns (hammer strength): 265: 8,9 270: 8
PR. Man this exercise gets better and better for me each week. I love this hammer strength machine. I wish the whole gym was filled with them. I loved having 3 plates on each side. It just motivated me and phyched me up like crazy!
4. Rack Chins: 15: 8,7 20: 7
PR. I use a wider grip on this to hit a different part of my back. also, I keep the weight (DB) on my waist if anyone was wondering.
This workout went great, except the BB rows. I'm going to try and feel that better next time. Also, Deadlifts have been moved to shoulder/trap day for those who think I might have gotten rid of this exercise. I HAVEN'T! I love that exercise way too much. It's just It was bothering me because my legs were always still sore from leg day, so i had to give it more rest days.
