Day 93: Strength Training Part 2

Day 93

Metabolic Surge: Strength/Recovery Phase, Day 8

Good day, Shredders!

Today was the last training day of my second round of Metabolic Surge.  After work and a quick meal, I drove off again to the city to do Strength Training for the upper body: chest (barbell bench press), back (deadlifts), shoulders (dumbbell overhead press), biceps (barbell curls), and triceps (close-grip barbell bench press).  This time, I didn’t set any personal bests, but got close on most of them and equalled on some.  I also noticed that the more I’ve been doing those exercises, the more I am noticing points in which I think my form can be improved, especially with bench presses (for example, I need to get the bar lower even when trying for heavier weights).  I think that means that I was getting too aggressive with my loading and feared pushing myself especially without a spotter.  I will be making one of my objectives for my next mission to be to master the proper form on the big lifts like squats, deadlifts, and bench press (and not be afraid to ask for a spot!)

Nutrition was according to plan, balanced meals with lots of fruits and and vegetables and some healthy fats thrown in.

The next two days are rest days.  I’ll be using those days to plan my next mission.

Eat clean, train hard, and expect success!
