First workout under Mr. Westerling's tutelage. Current schedule is going to be Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. I am looking forward to this training.
12” Log Clean and Presses (Strict + Push)
250x15 PR+10 reps
Close Grip Barbell Bench Presses (2 second pauses)
12” Log Chest Supports
410x5 (6 second hold on last rep)
37 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: Clean and pressing felt pretty good. Nice and crisp. Press felt slow with 210lbs so I tried using a somewhat hard belt. 250lbs was as high as I felt comfortable going with the 20lbs jumps. No pain in my shoulders so happy about that. Pulldowns felt good at the start, a bit tougher once I got over 190lbs. Haven't done them regular style in a while so apparently a big rep PR. Pausing for benching is weird as I get a lot of power off my chest. I was looking forward to doing the supports. Boy were those exhausting. Lots and lots of sets to get up to a 5rm from where I started. Good workout, going to sleep well tonight haha.
