Super Set: Plate Around-the-Worlds/Cybex Dual Axis Rear Delts
Straight Arm Pulldowns
Overhead Rope Extensions
33 Minutes of Stretching
Need to catch up on sleep. Been trying to keep food intake high.
Feeling uncomfortably full most of the time haha. Right hip felt tight
and left shoulder the same. Knees kind of achy as well. The j-hooks
someone else at the gym had ordered arrived the day before so I got to
try them out and they may not be a perfect fit but it will do. Push
pressing to start things off. Trying to stay low key, calm and
controlled each set. First set the weight felt pretty darn heavy in my
hands and on my shoulders. I tried to keep the weight more on my body
the following sets and it felt much better. Not going full bore on these
to lock them out. Incline bench was ok, left shoulder was making things
feel weird. Calm and controlled for these sets while keeping good form.
Then on to the plate and machine superset. Weight down for the plate
but stayed the same for the rear delt stuff. The smaller diameter plate
as well as the weight made it feel like a toy at first. Good power on
the rear delt stuff. Shoulders definitely getting fatigued by the end.
Straight arm stuff went well. Able to keep a better arm position on
these with the lighter weight. Triceps with the rope felt ridiculously
easy with the decrease in weight. Might also be the reduced workload
beforehand too. Good bit of stretching and then home to eat and sleep.
