GVAC first iron

I mixed things up a little today. Still did sets on the 2:00 but focused more on triceps lifts. Things went well, my tri’s were spent.

  • bench press
    • 1 x 12 @ 135 lbs on the 2:00
    • 2 x 12 @ 155 on the 2:00
    • 1 x 9 @ 155 on the 2:00
    • 1 x 8 @ 155 on the 2:00
      • This got hard. Last 2 sets were to failure. 155 may be a good weight for next time though.
  • behind-the-neck shoulder press
    • 1 x 12 @ 65 lbs on the 2:00
    • 1 x 12 @ 75 on the 2:00
    • 1 x 9 @ 75 on the 2:00
    • 2 x 12 @ 65 on the 2:00
      • I must have been extra spent from benching. This was not a lot of weight but felt real hard. The last 2 sets I bumped down the weight and went slow. Good shoulder burn.
  • skull crushers
    • 1 x 12 @ 45 lbs on the 2:00 (assuming the french-curl bar is 25 lbs, I think it is)
    • 1 x 12 @ 55 on the 2:00
    • 3 x 12 @ 65 on the 2:00
      • Easy. Went slow, really hit my tri’s.
  • cable press-downs w/ rope
    • 5 x 12 @ 40 lbs on the 2:00
      • Kinda easy. Really felt this in my tri’s though.

I’m thinking a shift of focus from big lifts to arm workouts will positively affect my weight. That is, I will lose some. I weighed 183 lbs, dressed, this morning at the gym. That’s not a size that’s conducive to efficient climbing.
