Week 2 - Thursday, 03/01/2012 ; Session III - Chest & Triceps
Since I was out to another office location this morning, I decided to take my lunch hour and hit the gym. Man I felt good today! Could definitely tell an improvement over last week in nearly every area. I'm liking this more and more as I go.
Here is today's rundown:
Decline Bench Press: 2 x 8 + 6 Neg w/155lbs, 175lbs
Flat Bench Press: 2 x 8 + 6 Neg w/185lbs
Incline Bench Press: 2 x 8 + 6 Neg w/155lbs, 175lbs
Barbell Skull Crushers: 2 x 8 + 6 Neg w/65lbs
Seated Dumbbell Tricep Extensions: 2 x 8 + 6 Neg w/55lbs
Notes: I tried using the Smith machine to do the bench presses. Although I could move more weight (no fear of killing myself without a spotter), I found that I did not like the path that it made me travel, and I think it put extra stress on my shoulders. I simply can't do declines without a spotter I've found, as the way the bench sits, I can lift the weight, but can't move it out over the hooks. Fortunately, the other guys at the gym are more than willing to help a guy out with this. Triceps were on FIRE! By the time I finished, I felt like my tris were the size of tractor trailers lol.
Pre-Workout: 1 scoop Muscletech NaNoVapor
PWO: 42g protein shot, followed by a MRP for lunch (on the road).
