So, a couple of my buddies that I don’t get to play golf with all that often anymore are wanting to play a course I can get them on for cheap. Perks of working at a Top 10 in the state course. I’m looking forward to it greatly. We’re playing tomorrow which is my normal 3 a day. In order for me to keep myself honest, I had to do my 3 workouts today. No Biggy!
I got the T25 Cardio in this morning before work. Man is my ass sore. I mean my body is a little sore, but my ass is really sore. Shaun T loves friggin’ squats and lunges. Leg day lifts are legit when combined with Lunge Squat Progression… get the videos and join my pain.
Chest Day! I really want to pump the pecs. Big shoulders, chest, and arms are what I’m looking for; my legs are already fairly big. Those will get chiseled easily.
Incline Dumbbell Press Drop Set: 4 Sets (6*6): 50/35, 50/35, 50/35, 50/35. I chose to up the ‘drop’ weight which will help me get to heavier weights faster. Nice slow reps. Felt good.
3* Drop: 4 Sets, 6*6*6: 35/35/35/35. I figured I’d get a couple sets in before dropping the weight down, but damn I felt strong today. I think all the failure reps I’ve done are really helping me progress quickly.
Pec Deck: 4 Sets, 10 Reps: 100/100/110/110. Again, I don’t feel like taking up 2 positions to get my workouts done. I like this machine because I can really get a constant resistance through the lift. I’m doing a good squeeze at the end to make it more effective.
Close Grip Bench Press (Narrow Bench): 85/85/85/85. This is the first time in a couple weeks there’s been a bench open. I failed to get 85 up all 4 sets last time, but I got these with just a little strain on the last few reps on each set. I think I’ll go up 10lbs. next week.
Triceps: My neck was a little stressed out today. I didn’t want to push it too hard, so I just took a 25lb. dumbbell and slow rep’d myself to failure 3 times. 21/13/9. I thought I could get more, and maybe the ‘behind the head’ position was stupid for my neck, but I got a really good burn in.
This site won’t let me post the video I took, but check it out here https://www.facebook.com/quests4josh/
I got home, and I went after one of the next days T25 workouts. Lower Focus. I saved my favorite for tomorrow morning, Total Body Circuit. I’m really glad this is the last week of the Alpha Phase. I’m getting a little burnt out on these workouts. I guess they know what they’re doing over at Beach Body.
Hit me up on the Facebook, or twitter @quests4josh. I’ve got to start Instagramming I guess. I’ll think about some bare body shots, but I don’t think anyone wants to see that.
Get Strong or crash trying!
