Sore pecs; Cheat meal a day early; Big list of my favorite lifting music!

Man, my pecs are VERY sore this morning. The only thing I really did different this week was I lightened the load a little bit for my cable-crossover work and did super-slow reps with a 3-second pause and contract between the positive and negative phases. Oh, and I added 20 pounds to my incline dumbbell presses. Why such a big jump? Simple: I upgraded my dumbbell collection! I was forced to go light up until now because I only had up to 70 pound dumbbells.

Normally I’m very diligent about defrosting food for my meals, but somehow I completely missed the boat yesterday and forgot to defrost some fish for last night’s meal. I decided to order pizza and have my cheat meal last night, so no cheat meal for me tonight! I don’t even care, I love my bulking meals so much that every night feels like a cheat meal!

Today’s “Favorite things” entry is a pretty big list of some of my favorite weight training CDs. I generally don’t listen to this kind of music unless I’m lifting weights, but when I’m training I like this kind of stuff a great deal. I realize that most, if not all of it, is not to everyone’s tastes, and you should also be aware that most of the music carries an “Explicit Lyrics” warning. That said, here is some of what’s playing on my stereo when I lift (I’ve included a full-length sample track to help give you an idea of what each band sounds like). These are in no particular order:

Fear Factory – Obsolete
Fear Factory – Digimortal

Diecast – Tearing Down Your Blue Skies
  + Sample track: Medieval by Diecast
