Great workout last night; New back routine.
My chest workout yesterday was awesome! For some reason my elbow and wrist were not bothering me at all, and the weights felt like they were made of foam. I love workouts like that!
The chest workout I’m doing now is the same as the workout I started my bulk with almost 3 months ago. I went back to my logs for the last workout I did using these exercises and added 20 pounds to the weights I used for bench, incline press and dips. With the added weight I still did four sets of 12 on every exercise, and the weights actually felt light. I went super slow on the eccentric phase (downward) with an extra long contraction after the concentric phase just to make everything more difficult. Also, my nighttime body weight is around 233 pounds now compared to around 209 pounds back in September, so with the added ~44 pounds (body weight + increased plates) over what I was doing a couple months ago the dips should have been quite a bit more challenging than they were. I know I could add a lot more weight to my dips, but I don’t think my bum shoulders can handle it.
So tonight is back night. I hope tonight’s back workout is as good as last night’s chest workout was! Here’s the back routine I’ll be doing for the next 4 weeks:
4×12 Lat Pull-downs (Narrow-grip, palms in)
4×12 Low cable rows (Wide grip, palms down)
4×12 One-arm dumbbell rows
