I got to train with Zeb today and also got roped into helping a certain disreputable character in the gym put on his bench shirt. I think this is Zeb’s real motive; he didn’t want to do it by himself.
wide grip bench: 225×3, 275×3, 315×3.5, 225×15
seated dumbbell shoulders: 60×10,2,5 It took me a long time to get a spot for a forced rep, so I recharged quite a bit for the last rest-pause.
3-board press: 275×5
close grip pushups: I think I banged out 10 4-count pushups and then rest-pause until I did another 10 for a total of 20 (40 pushups) but it might have just been ten, I can’t really remember. In fact, I sort of lost track as I was doing it. I figure if this doesn’t happen occasionally when you’re training alone, you’re not working all that hard.
barbell row: 185×11, 5, 2 I rest-paused my rest-pauses, I didn’t really work about doing them continuously. At any rate, I did a lot of reps. I did a long isometric at the end.
close grip (T-rex pose) pulldowns: 9×15,7,5 I don’t know, I got a pump, but whatever. Just imagine a T-rex, with it’s little arms, that’s what you look like in the bottom position.
Then I went to the Pizza Buffet, which kicked ass. Two buffets two nights in a row. Dare we dream? This time I did a little experiment and started out the meal with a huge plate of pineapple, so we’ll see if this aids digestion.
I don’t know if I mentioned this last time, but at least as of last night before the buffets, I was done to the very last hole of my belt if I cinched it down tight. At this rate, I’m going to have to drill some more holes in it.
