Today’s Workout

I had leg day and chest/shoulder day since the last time I posted. It was brutal and left me so sore that today I decided I needed a pump at work to get blood in there and help the DOMS. Somebody had broken the cables on every machine and ripped the pulleys down.

My body is not ready for back and full body day.

Wow, what would possess someone to do that?

I have no idea. They say stuff like that happens every couple of years. It isn't uncommon to come in and find the little carabiners stolen off of the free trainer machine or attachments missing though.

The company has basically said they are going to stop replacing parts and fixing equipment if it keeps happening.

It sucks when idiots blow it for everyone else.

Today

Hammer Strength Iso Row - 10-8-6 rep warm up set, 10x3

Assisted Pull-up - 1 warm up set, 4*10 switching grip on each set

Hammer Strength Shrug- Reverse drop set warm up, 10*2, 12 rep -> 8 reps drop set

Smith Machine Rows - 1 warm up set, 3x10

Preacher Curl Machine - 4 sets with same weight but dropping rest by 15 seconds between each set

Single Arm Cable Curls - Drop set going down three plates on the stack, Go to failure switching arms after each set and no full rest, Same with dual five second isometric holds on each rep

I threw out the programmed rep and set scheme because I had to switch up my exercise order and equipment due to the crowd. The switch made it hard to get a real feel for how much weight to use. So, I opted for volume and intensity methods.

Old School Cool

I didn't really keep a log that would make sense today. I was in a shitty mood and just decided to add 10lbs to everything. If that wasn't hard enough, add more. When I got 3 working sets of 10, I kept adding weight until 8 reps was an RPE of 8.5-9.

Five Minute Elliptical Warm Up
Seated Leg Curl
Power Squat
Seated Leg Extension
Laying Hamstring Curl
Iso Lateral Leg Extensions (To failure and then switch leg, continue alternating until complete failure.)

Thursday was chest, shoulders, and triceps.

Friday was back and biceps with a 1.4 mile hike later in the day.

Saturday was short weighted carries with a kettle bell. I did suitcase carries followed by a "goblet" carry using both hands.

Legs
Seated Leg Curl - 3 warm up sets, 3*10, +20%*10 reps

Power Squat - Started with a medium weight warm up set of ten and keep going up until you can only do eight. Eight sets total.

Seated Leg Extension - 1 warm up set of six, 2*12, 2*11 (Last week I could only get eight with that weight.)

Iso Leg Extension - Alternating legs starting with the left and going to failure on that side. Then two less on the right. Keep going until only capable of two on the left. This is designed to address size and strength differences.

To be clear though, even on off days I am still off my butt and moving around!
