Well today was chest and triceps so I did 3 45 lb plates on each side. I can only like 1.5 to 2 reps at this weight but I do that then drop a 45 off each side and do 6 with 2 45’s on each side for the rest of the set. I’ve found that I can really ramp up my weight by doing sets like this. But one thing I’m finding is I’m burning out on the last half of the second rep! Oh well, that’s a good thing I guess as the muscle is toast by the time I get to the lighter last 6 reps.
I’m also continuing my work on the tracking system and am working on the exercise tracking and the leaderboard for the site. What I’m doing is all members will automatically be on the leaderboard and it will be shown according to % weight lost. This way you can see how you stack up to other members. I’m also considering offer rewards for the highest percentage lost each week. I think this unique feature will push the site over the top.
So stay tuned! Here’s my workout today:
- Olmypic bar drop sets
- Cable flys
- Incline smith machine presses
- Cable pull overs
- Incline bench straight bar cable extensions
- Rope pulls overhead with cable
- Reverse cable one arm extensions
- Forearm reverse curls with bar
- 3 x 25 ab machine crunches
- 3 x 25 side bends with 45 plate
