Training Log: Entry 1994
Captains of Crush grippers
30 second hold
Notes: Progress is really coming along on these. Forearms are blowing up quickly too. Really happy to have picked these back up after so long; gives me something new to focus on. I think once I can hit 20 reps with the 2, I'll break out the 2.5 and see what I can do.
Woke up at 184.4 this morning. Just going to keep a concentrated effort to eat bit. Going to try out some seated pressing tonight.
Seated axle press
bar x 10
Notes: Once again, no reference for 1rm, so just picked a reasonable weight and will calculate from there. Right rotator cuff was a little pissed off from this, something to watch for. I'm suspending the axle from chains at the bottom of the movement to make it easier to get under.
Notes: Amazing the difference the forward lean makes on these.
Notes: Found a way to lean slightly against my bench so that I can standing while performing these without putting any weight on my left leg. Really happy about that, because these are awesome to have in the program.
Seated light band pushdowns
Band pull aparts
Wide grip cable rows 90lbs
Notes: Performed these in between sets of everything else, with the set of 15 at the end. For those just joining me, my cable station is some old school Weider home gym plate loadable thing, so it doesn't take much weight to really get it to get heavy. My time spent bodybuilding seemed to pay off, because I really felt this in my mid back.
General notes: Got to take the last bit of tape off my left leg today. I can officially shower without taping a bag to my stitches. It's the little things really.
