Wed. Nov. 23rd:
Close Grip Incline-I've been working this the past 2 weeks to get some tricep work in and put less stress on the bicep insertion (versus the flat bench press).
I worked up to 115 for 8 and shut it down. I felt a little twingy at the insertion of the torn bicep so I played it safe.
I did some pressing with the 10" log after that-3 sets of 12. This felt pretty good and gave men no issues in the bicep.
Tate Presses with FatGripz were next for about 100 sets of 8 with the 30's.
On to Pulldowns, I worked up to 190 for sets of 5. This was a little hard on the bicep so I stopped there.
Abs and the new Reverse Hyper were next.
|Yep, she looks better than me doing it.|
No concept 2 today as my back is destroyed. from pulling and rowing. Adding the rowing in was actually a LOT of volume quickly.
Friday Nov. 26th:
Still on the modified block training.
I dead lifted first. Worked up to 3 sets of 3 with 335 and no belt. All done hook grip on the first rep and double overhand for the rest.
I added a belt and went to 405, then 435. As I pulled 435 off the floor my right bicep felt quirky, so I put it down. This was a huge mental pr. I have a bad habit of rehabbing an injury just enough to do something STUPID as soon as it feels a little better. Not today kids, I played it smart.
Reverse Hyper next for a few sets of 12 with 90 pounds.
On to the Concept 2. I did 1250 meters in 5:26. This was almost a full minute off Monday's time.
On to a great Thanksgiving highlight. As usual, George Bova of Bova's bakery in the North End gave me a Ricotta Pie. I am proud to say that I ate a half of it in one sitting AFTER the giant plate of turkey and mashed potatoes and stuffing. Another PR.
