first iron at the Shed

Morning workouts at the Shed are extra fun. Just me and the weights. Hit chest, shoulders and triceps today. Felt OK.

  • bench press
    • 4 x 12 @ 155 lbs on the 2:00
      • Fourth set was real hard.
    • 1 x 6 @ 155 on the 2:00
      • Yeah, that’s how hard the fourth was. Total failure on the fifth set.
  • behind-the-neck press
    • 5 x 12 @ 65 on the 2:00
      • 65 lbs sounds way light, I know. I was spent after benching, so this actually was an alright weight.
  • skull crushers
    • 1 x 12 @ 55 on the 2:00
    • 1 x 12 @ 65 on the 2:00
    • 2 x 12 @ 75 on the 2:00
    • 1 x 10 @ 85 on the 2:00
  • dips
    • 1 x 14 on the 2:00

Going fast like this, on two minute splits, kills me. My triceps were spent. These recent routines are more focused on my arms, as this allows me to avoid the weight gain associated with lifting large muscle groups like my chest and back. Going fast and keeping the weights light also helps.
