Delts & Triceps

Good session today.  No new ground, but a good solid workout.  Both shoulders were playing nice so I finished up with some Smith Machine presses; considering all the work that was done before them I think they went well.

I've had severe elbow issues in the past, but thankfully not for a while.

Power Friday

Deadlifts were a mixed bag today.  Progression sets were pretty good, but I ran out of gas quickly on the heavy singles.  455 and 475 flew off the ground but the 5 plater went up slowwwwwwww.  Attempted 515 three fuggin' times and I just couldn't get it, but not for lack of trying.

Leg press was just as beastly as ever.  Some really good work there.

Freemotion LiftSingle Arm Cable Shrugs???

I'm trying to picture shrugging 150# one arm at a time, must take an incredible amount of tension in your core.  :o

Surprised you didn't get grief from adding weight to the stack for the rows.

The machine looks like this:



It's for doing a cable version of deadlifts and a few other excercises.  Figured I'd give it a shot at doing shrugs on it.  Didn't stand on the platform I stood on the floor next to it and did one side at a time.  Traps were pumped.

And I'm sure if someone that worked there saw me throwing that plate on the stack they would've said something. But I don't really care.  :)

Power Friday

Didn't get 515 again today, but so effing close, and I did break 500 lbs so Harry can't bust my balls. Also got up to 455 without the belt. Pleased with that.  Bumped up the weight on my backoff sets from 405 to 425 and it almost killed me.  LOL.

Went full retard on the leg press, getting 3 sets of 6 @ 1,000 lbs.

Took a vid of the first set at 1k but I don't have time to upload now so I'll post it later.

Overall a great day in the gym.  :)
