Yesterday Rita had to take her son to an appoint with Dr. Burns, so it was just me and Tricia hitting the back workout. Tricia is making great progress in her workouts and I continued to surprise myself with strength increases in some exercises. Our back workout was fantastic!!!
Lat Pulldowns 5 sets 8-12 reps (increased weight)
Seated Cable Row 5 set 10-12 reps (increased wt.)
High Pulley Row 4 sets 9-12 reps (increased wt)
One Arm DB Row 3 sets 10-12 reps (increased wt)
Deadlifts (off the floor) 5 sets 12, 10, 8, 6, 3 I was feeling really good on the first 3 sets then totally ran out of gas. Only 365X3 on my last set, but given the increases on everything else, I was not surprised that my back was totally exhausted. And, it’s very sore today!
Today Tricia and I met at Gold’s for our shoulder and arm workout. I was afraid the fatigue and soreness from my back workout would hinder me, but it didn’t and we had a great workout again today! My strength and endurance are amazing for being in contest shape!
