DAY 22: CHEST/TRIS
So I tried something a little different today. I dosed my usual 2 scoops of SpeedX3 about 10 minutes prior to the gym, and then about 1/4 of the way into my workout I added another half scoop to some water and sipped on it throughout the workout.
BARBELL BENCHPRESS: 45×20 95×15 135×12 185×10,10,9+1assist,6+2assist 135×8 so while not 225 like Evan was hoping I’d get I wasn’t too terribly upset at these numbers whatsoever, and ended up setting a PR for reps. It was crazy because after that set of 135 when I stood up to get some water I was immediately hit all the face with beta alanine tingles hardcore. Felt super crazy but only lasted for a few seconds! Finally back to cracking some PRs with chest!
DB INCLINE PRESS: 25×15 45×10,10,10 not a PR, but up 5lbs from last time
BARBELL DECLINE BENCHPRESS: 65×15 165×10,10,10,10 My workout partner really wanted to do these so I obliged… I thought we were overworking the chest and in the end my triceps paid for it but it still felt great.
HIGH-SET DOWNWARD CABLE FLYS: 50×10,10,10,10 a good squeeze finisher to solidify the pecs
DIPS: BW+25×8,7 BW+10×10,10 less than last week but I blame the volume during the benchpress workouts for pre-exhausting the triceps so this was expected
SKULLCRUSHERS: 35×15 45×10,10,10,15 adding that half scoop of SpeedX3 here gave me arm-bursting pumps that were just ridiculous
TRICEP ROPE SEPARATION: 50×10,9 40×10,10 so much PUMP!
NO-ATTACHMENT TRICEP PULLDOWN: 20×10,10
Toast. While the triceps weren’t the showstopper today I was glad to see the numbers I hit with the benchpress and look forward to improving that as time goes on and I continue to bulk up in weight. Felt fantastic today!
Off for this weekend for my little vacation. Depending on what time I get home Sunday I may hit the gym up again. Only time will tell. And if my liver hasn’t exploded from the weekend.
