Upper Body Volume With A Twist

8 May 2013

Instead of my regular moderate sets of 5 I lowered the weight and did paused sets of five instead. The weight was quite light, but did not feel that way at all. Managed quality one-second pauses on all 15 reps, two on a few of them. I will keep the weight the same for the next few weeks and focus on pausing longer and pressing up more explosively.

Paused bench press 275 lbs. x 3 sets x 5

Seated low pulley row, extended-ROM bar 5 x 6

Standing military press 170 lbs. x 3 x 5 - these are easy again, no belt

Neutral-grip pullup 5 x 5

Dips 3 x 12

Barbell skullcrushers 3 x 8

Hammer curls 3 x 10

Seated curls x 12, x 10, x 8
