That wasn’t too bad.

I am suspecting the ingesting of the pre-workout carbs further away from the workout is helping. Again this morning I woke up and had my Tang and Whey upon waking, so that put it about 45-60 minutes before I started lifting. Best I can say is that my “usual” sensation of just being out of gas and then about half-way into things starting to feel some gas, that sensation never happened. I just felt steady the whole time.

As well, while I didn’t really progress much vs. last week, I certainly didn’t regress. And if anything, I did feel a bit more (e.g. got 1 more rep on dips, 1 more on inlines — which really doesn’t mean much, but yet given the trend it actually means something). So hey… maybe this will help me get through.

Only real comment I have is that at the end I opted to do push-ups then machine flies. So I’d do pushups until I couldn’t, then went over to the flies machine and cranked out a few reps focusing on having just my pecs move things. So I’d get maybe 10 pushups then like 5 flies… nothing big, but why do this? I don’t know… I just did. I waffle between the two in terms of which is a better. I actually think the push-ups would be better, but the flies really give my chest that final bit that I don’t get otherwise. Eh. If nothing else, I can just keep doing what I’m doing and rotate each week. shrug

    • 3 sets of I don’t really remember because I didn’t mark it down. But I’d get like 10 push-ups then immediately go to the flies machine and get maybe 5 reps @ 70 lbs really focusing on contracting just my pecs to move things.
