Exercise Log 5.29.14 (Front Squat & Bench Press Day, No Cardio)

Today is Front Squat & Bench Press day. Again cycle 3 which is hypertrophy plus – focus on lifting a little more than last week’s workout. Again just recording this more for the log than anything else.

Trying a different substitute for bench pressing, an iso-lateral machine. Wasn’t really satisfied with the results.

Front Squat: Set 1) 12 reps @ 105lbs. Set 2) 10 reps @ 125lbs. Set 3) 10 reps @ 135lbs. Set 4) 6 reps @ 145lbs.

Hammer Strength Iso-Lateral Bench Press Machine: Unlike the bench dumbbell chest press, and surprisingly the incline iso-lat machine, this felt worse on my shoulders than I thought. I honestly had to drop weight a lot to get to something I felt comfortable with, and even then I wasn’t sure I should’ve even done these. Will avoid this in the future. 5 sets of 8 reps @ 35lbs loaded on each side. Kind of awful.

Angled Leg Press / Calf Raises: 4 sets of 12 reps presses/raises @ 270lbs.

Goblet Squat / Romanian Deadlift: Used a straight preloaded 80lb bar with a supine grip for the RDL’s and felt real good with that. 3 sets of 8 reps goblet squats @ 90lb dumbbell / 10 reps @ 80lbs straight bar.

After this my legs felt pretty done, and with the hammer strength machine incident I felt it might be good to avoid further load there. Had other things to do for the evening, so it was time to bounce. No cardio, but that’s cool.
