Training - Cable Pulls

17 January 2013

Went to the gym and warmed up for deadlifts... then I couldn't get to a platform. I couldn't get to a power rack. I couldn't even find a bar to do deadlifts off the floor. The gym was overcrowded with New Year resolutionists and 95-lb. power cleaners. I hung in there for about 30 minutes, then left.

At home I did "heavy" cable pulls for 12 reps instead, and felt much better. The exercises went as follows:

Front chest pull
Overhead downward pull (after rep 12 I reduced the resistance and hit another 8)
Straight-arm front pulldown
Back press
Neck pressout
Bicep curl (2 sets)
Archer pull
Front lateral raise
Back lateral raise
Shoulder shimmy
