This is what I like. 🙂

Heavier weights, lower reps…. yeah, this is what I like.

What gets me tho? How my bench is still getting better despite the relatively low volume. I dig it.

Just a few notes.

Forgot to do my last set of pulldowns (the AMRAP drop set). I just was thinking about rows and so I went to rowing and totally spaced on the pulldowns. Heh. I just skipped it. No big deal.

On rows, the DB always hits my chest. It’s a matter of angles, gravity, etc. Well, it annoyed me on my 3rd set and I repositioned myself slightly so the DB came more up at my side. Thus, a greater range of motion. I felt things in my mid-back muscles that I hadn’t. This was good, duh. So I kept that up for the last set; consequently I hit fewer reps than last week, but they were better reps. I might actually consider dropping the weight a bit so I can really squeeze out the deeper range here. Funny thing is that normally I don’t like DB rows, but doing them this way (as Inception lays it out) has actually been pretty good.

Oh, and I’m down to 207 this morning. Dropped 1.5 lb. since yesterday. 🙂 Hooray holiday bloat!
