Yesterday was a pretty slow work day, and I really felt like hitting the weights so I did my arm workout mid-day instead of my usual 6:00 PM time. I took a few pictures of my post-workout guns (I mean that literally, so don’t click if they scare you). Lisa pretty much made fun of me all night, so feel free to pile on if you like. 😆

I’ve had a few people ask me if I’m still doing supersets for my biceps and triceps, and the answer is “Yes!” I feel like bicep/tricep supersets have made a tremendous difference in my progress. Supersets are very demanding, but I enjoy the mental and physical challenge a great deal.

So, one week left to go on my 2006 cut. Next Saturday will mark the beginning of my summer “strength building” phase. This upcoming phase will be the first time I’ve ever lifted weights with the main focus on gaining strength and not size. I think further increasing my strength will assist with my hypertrophy progress when I bulk this Fall/Winter. For my strength building phase, I’ll be increasing my calories slightly, and doing MAX-OT. Of course with the reduced reps and increased poundages, my biggest concern is injury – particularly my right shoulder. I’ve been very fortunate that my shoulder has held up for the past couple of years without any trouble, and I don’t want that to change. I may break from the standard MAX-OT protocol a little bit and do an extra set of warmup reps for some exercises.

I’d better go get on the bike – lots to do today!
