Training Log: Entry 2013
Seated axle press
axle x 10
Notes: Misgrooved a rep or 2 on the 180 set. Really trying my hardest to press overhead instead of in front. For the last 4 sets, I got rid of the backrest. Really trying to up the volume on my pressing without getting my shoulders buggy. Tried some behind the neck pressing, but shoulder got twinged on the set-up. Will need to start it with a higher suspended position.
Dips (forward lean)
Notes: Trying to cram in a ton of volume, so did rest pausing. 12 deep breaths between all "sets". Managed 80 total before my right rotator cuff tapped out. Think I'll keep this approach for the future. I like dips, but I want some more variety as well.
Axle curls 50lbs
Notes: First 70 reps I held onto the axle the whole time. After that, had to rest it on the pins every 10 reps. Think I'll stick with this weight until I can go without resting.
Seated band pushdowns
Band pull aparts
Cable rows 130lbs
Notes: Sets between sets of everything. Really feeling the contraction in my middle back on these. I think learning to use this lift has been one of the better things to come out of my ACL tear.
