Back at the Church of Iron

I’d like to say that I was super stoked about hitting the gym today, but it was hot. I was rushing to get the workout in because my golf addiction took over this morning which led me to play an early round. 77 if you care.

Round 2!!

Bench Press is the starter with my new 1RM: 5 Reps, 4 Sets: 130/140/160/160. I did an extra rep on the last one because I knew I could!

Dumbbell Shoulder Press: 4 Sets, 10 Reps: 45/45/45/45…failed at 7. This is a good thing!

Barbell Shoulder Press w/cleans: 4 Sets, 10 Reps: 80/80/80/80. Man I grunted these out. Pushing weight, son!

This month I’m going to change up this lift. I’m swapping the ‘Scare Crow’ with a rotator cuff band pull. I have a yellow band that I can’t for the life of me remember the weight of, but I’ll find it and edit this post. 4 Sets, 10 Reps, both arms: boom/boom/boom/boom!

I’m changing the dips from a bench dip to a full body weight dip + pull downs: 3 Sets, #/35lbs.: 5/35,6/35, 6/35.

Lateral Raise, Front Raise, Rear Fly, Shoulder Press: 3 Sets, 8*8*8: I grabbed the 15s, but I knew it would be sloppy so I went back to 10lbs. Time under tension after this shoulder massacre is really all I need. 10/10/10.

Failing on the first shoulder press is a great positive. This means I’m really tearing the muscles, and I’m more than willing to eat my way to healing!

On another note, it was very tough to swing my driver tonight. I managed a 38 in the league, but that was from stellar iron play and timely putting.

Thanks for reading. Leave me a comment or ask a question. I’m really hoping I can show everyone that a little hard work can exponentially add strength and pile on some muscle!

Get Strong. Stay Strong.
