Treadmill 5min. walk + Agile 8 Managed to work up a sweat again. The tennis ball butt rolling felt a bit more painful today. I felt especially tight the first time I did the Agile 8 the previous workout, especially on the mountain climbers and groiners, but, already, today, I’m feeling a bit looser.
Bench Press: 5xBar, 5×75, 5×85 + 5×100, 5×115, 5×135
Not bad, I felt a bit weak though. I think I need to do some CNS exercises on my upper body before heading into the exercises. I felt like my muscles hadn’t “woken up” yet by the time I was pressing the 3rd set.
Boring But Big 50%
Press: 5x10x50 + DB Row: 5x10x35
I was really spent after the second set, but I realized I wasn’t resting enough between sets. The superset definitely became much easier when I allotted a few extra minutes to resting. But, on the contrary, I really shouldn’t be exerting much effort on these. I think I might lower the poundage on the DB Row or rest more.
Curls: 3x10x40 + Tricep pushdown: 3x10x30 + Face pull: 3x10x20
The curls got me gassed fairly quickly, but, again, I rested more between sets and managed to have an easier time. I still might lower the curl weight; I really don’t want to be drained by the end of the workout from doing assistance work. I think doing so would only hinder my performance the following workout day, especially if it’s a back-to-back.

Incorporating these after each workout as a way for me to warm down.
