Had to take a forced rest day yesterday after waking up with a headache that was giving me blurred vision and nausea. I went back to bed until 2:30! Got up and was able to work the rest of the day. Meant I had to skip out on golfing today, though it was quite chilly with rain on the way. Out in the garage at 4pm.
- 3x10x165 (Wide Grip)
I hate this fucking day in the program. Took 39 minutes to get through those sets!
- 3×15 Skull Crushers (45-55-65#)
- 3×15 DB Side Raises (15#)
- 3×15 DB Bent-over Side Raises (15#)
Used a barbell for the skull crushers. I felt a lot more fatigued after the benching today, which made the raises harder than they have been.
- 30s Double DB Overhead Hold (50# DBs)
- 10 Scap Pull-ups
- 30s Rest
The double dumbbell overhead was the hardest part of the day and I didn’t even do it walking like it was supposed to. I took a few steps and nearly fell over. The fifties were too heavy for this, but after making it through the first round I didn’t want to bitch out.
The scap pull-ups were actually supposed to be paired up with 20 ring dips for 3 sets, but I moved things around.
- 30-20-10 Ring Dips
- 30-20-10 GHD Sit-ups
30-20-10 Pistols60-40-20 Air Squats
I figured the ring dips would be trouble and planned to start with sets of 5 and quickly switch to 2 or 3s if needed. I was able to continue sets of 5 the whole way. GHD sit-ups were harder than they should have been. I struggled through 12 of the ugliest pistols I’ve done in years. My left quad was not having it today. I probably should have warmed up my lower body some. After 12 pistols, a lot of falling over, and too much wasted time, I changed the workout to double reps of air squats. So I finished the first round with 48 air squats to get to 60. Total time was 12:42.
