Speed/volume squat 300 lbs. 2s x 5, 370 lbs. 2s x 5

No (Wrist) Pain, No Gain?

24 November 2014

Paused speed bench press 275 lbs. 2s x 3, 265 lbs. 2s x 3

First two sets were not fast at all. Dropped the weight and it was slightly better.

Wrist pain is back, and shoulder is flaring up again, both on the same side. Great.

Pec deck machine 3s x 10

DB tricep extension 3s x 12

Bicep trisets (preacher curl + EZ curl + spider curl) 3 sets

Fast Press

17 November 2014

Paused speed bench press 275 lbs. 4s x 3

Seated cable row 3s x 8

Tricep pressdown 3s x 10

Cable pec fly 3s x 10

Bicep tri-sets (DB preacher curl + EZ bar curl + spider curl) 3 sets

Reduced the upper back work this week as the heavy bench press day weights are supposed to increase. I'll do a few sets of chest-supported rows once a week for the next 3 weeks as I work up to a 1RM, but that will be it.
