Pump Day

Lame title. It’s just my “Wednesday” in terms of workouts.

I’m getting better at this workout. I am working out first thing in the morning, and it’s a little hard to get super jacked up about it, but I can definitely tell a big difference in my stamina going at the moderate pace.

I left work, and I rushed to the gym. Once a month, my golf course puts on the ‘9 and Dine’ 2 man competition. So, I had to get the workout in before that. (Did not play well. My golf training has really taken a backside seat to this whole Para Bellum Corpus). Anyway, I flew through todays workout. I was really impressed. I am not a big ‘ARMS’ guy, but my little Gatling’s held up really well.

Pull Up Progression: 5/3/2/2/1. I think I’m going to have to work on these every other day.

Single Arm Dumbbell Row: 4 Sets, 12 Reps: 60/60/60/60. I moved this bad boy really well. The first set was much harder than the last 3. Good form here helps. No jerking.

TRX Body Weight Row: 4 Sets, 10 Reps. I’d like to do these on a bar, but I’m not an asshole taking up a machine when the gym is packed. Also, no one would agree that I’m not an asshole. Anyway, I try to really rip through this, and really squeeze the back muscles.

Incline Curls: 4 Sets, 10 Reps: 30/30/30/30. I started last week’s set with 30’s,  but it got pretty cheaty really quickly. Today though, I grunted these out, and really pumped the guns. Man grit.

Super Set:

Zottman, Cross body, Pronate curls: 4 Sets, 8*8*8: 22.5, 22.5, 22.5, 22.5. Same thing here. Last week I got one set done, and I thought it was really swinging these around. Today, I took very minimum breaks between the lifts (no more than 40 seconds) and busted these things.

Guys and gals, if this thing proves anything, it’s that the body is an amazing machine that will get better, stronger, quicker, more limber if you can consistently aggravate it into submission.

I’m going to make a concerted effort to really get back to the golf training after this first month. I should post my handicap and rounds on here….
