Treadmill walk 5min + Agile 8 + DeFranco’s Upperbody Stretches
Press: 5×40, 5×50, 5×60
Very easy. Used a thumbless grip on all sets. Exploded from the rack position. Slow controlled descent.
Boring But Big 50%
Bench Press: 2x10xBar + 5x10x85
Pretty easy now. Made sure not to lockout to avoid protracting my shoulder blades.
Lat Pulldown: 5x10x40
Up’ed the weight 5 lbs. I think I might increase assistance work weight every cycle. Noticed that when pulling the bar to my chest that sometimes I would lean back. Not sure what the proper technique for doing a lat pulldown is, but I think leaning back is considered cheating a bit. I tried, instead, to maintain a fairly upright torso position on contraction to put work emphasis on the upper back traps and lats.
Curls: 3x10x30 + Tricep pushdown: 3x10x30 + Face pull: 2x10x30
Pretty easy now. I’ve gotten used to the extra assistance work. Love the pumped feeling. Bro statement.
