That went well.

Again, arm days are welcome because it’s a day of work but light work. It fits well with the diet plan because I get to eat more food since it’s a gym day, but it’s somewhat light on work so it’s a bit of a rest/break. So I dig it for that.

Overall structured well. Again, it’s about chasing the pump and just having fun.

Triceps work went well. One thing of note was on pushdowns I used that v-bar pushdown handle. I’ve never used it before, always either the rope or a straight/cambered bar. I tried it just because I hadn’t, and gosh if I didn’t like it. It’s hard to describe, but I felt like I actually got better isolation on the pressdown. I dug it.

Biceps wasn’t as good. Curls started out with 3 strict warmup sets, then 3 low-rep cheat sets (all the focus on eccentric). This was pretty cool, and I was floored at the pump I got just off that. Incline DB curls hit me harder than expected, but good. Then concentrations didn’t do a whole lot. I think next time I’ll start with BB/cheat curls, then hammer curls (love those), and finish with inclines. Should work well.

It’s just a day.
