Went to LA Fitness this morning to do some lifting. I sorta kinda program this workout by myself. Coach made some tweaks...but I did pick out what I wanted to do etc. So yeah...here is what I did:
SLOW 1000m Row - 4:29
135lbs x 10
185lbs x 5
315lbs 1.5 FAIL...grip strength was GONE...bar was slipping out of my hands. I know I could of did 2, I just could not hold the bar. I tried again and simply could not do it. Def need to work on grip strength.
CLOSE GRIP BENCH PRESS
Warm Up - normal grip 135lbs x 10 for 2 sets.
Working Set with Bands (30lbs adjust)
first time using bands...pretty cool. Had fun with these.
Weight used was 60% of 1RM (250-260lbs) approx 155lbs.
Using bands that have 30lbs resistance, I had 125lbs on the bar to make up for the weight.
10 x 3 = 30 reps total
135lb banded x 10 *extra set - as I felt good and wanted to try it with the bands.
PULL UP PRACTICE
12 reps broken into 3s.
4 sets of 3 pull ups
20s @ 100%
