Upper body (225x5 max)

Fri,  3 Nov 17

Bench: 135x10, 185x10,  205x5, 225x5, 205x5, 185x8
DB Bench: 40x12, 50x10, 60x5, 55x5
Ez-Bar Curls (21s): 50x3x21
Tricep Press: 52. 5x15, 62. 5x10, 72.5x10, 82.5x1, 67.5x10, 62.5x15
Pec Deck : 100x10, 130x10, 160x5

Bench was a bit of a grinder, but made it.  I have to work at a better method of getting the dumbbells in position.  I could handle more weight for actual pressing, but getting the weights up was really hard, and after heavy benching I really didn't have a lot left in my triceps.

Did some more curls today - 21's.  These are truly brutal even at low weights.  The pump just kills.  Couldn't do as many tricep presses or pec deck as I had hoped, kept the weight low as the fatigue was just brutal at that point.

I'm happy with the progress I'm making - I hit the bench number I was hoping for this week.  25x5 raw is a good start point.  I'll continue with messing with the weight and reps in the more classical sense - ie - next week say 235x5x1 or something like that, then go doubles, etc.
