Another early day at work, as I had one last interview to do for our job openings. That was okay though as it allowed me to get to the gym with a bit of time to spare.
Training today were the same upper-body exercises as in my previous workout, but this time, using a higher rep scheme (3X12) and shorter rest periods between sets (just 45s). I reduced the weight a bit compared to my 4X8 workout, but the chinup + dumbbell overhead press cycle (the second group of exercises) was still a killer! In particular, I used no weight for the chinups, and I was able to complete the first set of 12, but my back and arms have hardly recovered when it came time to have a go at another set of 12 (this was already after a set of overhead presses). In short, I was only able to complete 5 good reps on my 2nd and 3rd pullup sets. I’m disappointed, of course, but at least I now have a target to work up to!
Nutrition today was very good.
Eat right, train hard, and expect success!
