As typical, I crushed my body. I’m a day late posting about it, but it is haught! That’s a new way of saying ‘hot. It’s catchy.
Let’s get to the lift work out.
Deadlift: 4 Sets, 4 Reps” 160/185/215/215. I really felt all off these guys. The normal ‘new gains’ are setting in. I upped the weight pretty quickly, but I think that this struggle is going to help anyone break plateaus.
Romanian Deadlift: 145/145/145/145. This guy takes form to really hit the hammy strings. Make sure you’re keeping the same angle of knee flex and pulling with your legs.
Zercher Squat: 4 Sets, 12 Reps: NAH! I put 145 on the bar and from last week’s gnarled bar, my arms were still fairly bruised. I opted to get the FRONT/BACK stabilizers worked utilizing the GOBLET SQUAT!: 4 Sets, 20 Reps: 55lbs.:20/20/20. Holy Gosh! I should have been doing this the whole time. My quads, abs, and lower back were on fire after this. This is way better than the Zercher squat after this amount of weight (for me anyway). I don’t have big arms; so if your arms are thick enough to handle heavier weight, do the Zercher’s. If you have thin arms like me, try the goblet squats.
I realized that I hadn’t done my lower ab lifts, and I wanted to do some more rotational work because I play golf. SUPER SET!
Leg Lifts/Mason Twist w/ 20lbs.: 3 Sets, 12/12 .
We’re half way through this craziness. Let’s do it again once over!
Leave me a comment. Thanks for reading.
Get Strong. Stay Strong!
