No GoPro this weekend, but that doesn’t mean no kick ass work outs
Lasts night, Dave, Donnie and I, banged out shoulders and triceps. We started with standing over head presses for 5 sets, then reversed the grip for a few more. Upright rows, seated dumbbell side raises and bent over rear laterals. (head on back of incline bench)
Triceps we stuck with cables. We did rope pushdowns and straight bar reverse grip pushdowns and we went back and forth for 4 sets. We did the same with over head rope french curls and bent over head extensions. We ended everything doing 3 sets of crunches
Today it was just Jon and I, and thanks to Donnie's suggestion last night, John and I did 10 sets of 10 reps, squatting 225, after warming up with 135 and 185. It took us 25 minutes to do 12 sets of squats, that's 120 reps! So much blood went into my legs. I think they grew 2” or 3” in circumference. We will be doing this again!
How do you keep track of how many set you have done?
I’m glad you asked! Jon would throw a 5 pound plate in the corner every time he finished his set (he was last) and when we got to 5 plates, we went the other way, putting them away. This really help us stay focused and motivated to finish, it becomes a mind game after 5 sets
We finished off with leg curls, legs extensions, stiff legs (not for me-lower back was gone at this point) and donkeys
