Not going to lie, today I was super tired, i was practically falling asleep between sets during my workout & I don’t know how I managed to keep going because the pre-workout was even doing anything for me. I did a leg day session that lasted 3.5hours and it felt good, worked on another speed/dynamic day workout for the lower body and then hit some hypertrophy accessory work.

Back at it

8-6-18 Workout

I started back at my normal routine at the gym Monday — it felt good to be back and to get after the gains once again. Last week was a very busy and productive day, i decided to make it my deload week for 5 days because my body needed rest and I had to find an excuse so I wouldn’t feel bad about missing so many days at the gym. I felt good lifting, I decided to start with a dynamic day with bench press & gradually work my way up, so my muscle memory could come into effect. 

Warm up:

  • DB chest press: 4 x 25, 20 lbs
  • Rear delt machine: 4 x 25, 20 lbs
  • cable triceps pushdown: 4 x 25, 30 lbs

Workout:

  • Floor bench press: 6 x 8 (60%) 75 lbs
  • Floor bench press: 6 x 8 (65%), 80 lbs
  • Floor bench press (wide grip): 5 x 8-10, 80 lbs

Tri-sets:

  • Lat pulldown: 5 x 8-10, 60 lbs
  • Cable triceps pushdown: 5 x 8-10, 60 lbs
  • Cable face pulls: 5 x 8-10, 60 lbs

Tri-sets:

  • Db chest press: 5 x 8-10, 40 lbs
  • push ups: 5 x 8
  • DB triceps kickback: 5 x 8-10, 15 lbs each arm

I also happened to weigh myself & take my body fat measurements as well, because I will be re-applying my macros and getting more strict about nutrition again in the course of next week so I can lose body fat and gain more muscle. 

weight: 160 lbs 

Body fat %: 22.8 

BMI: 24.3% 

I gained about 6 pounds since my last weigh in >.< but my body fat percentage went down & my BMI increased. I don’t pay as much to BMI because it doesn’t take your muscle into consideration & bases it off height and weight (not accurate) so my main focus will be body fat and weight possibly — getting down to between 140-150 lbs. Although if I can get down to 135 & maintain my strength; that would be optimal. 

Thanks for being patient with me these last few days since I haven’t been blogging consistently — I definitely plan on getting back on a schedule that’s more regular for my readers.
