Similar to yesterday, today was my first upper body training session since November, 2013. At the WNPF meet I lifted at in Philadelphia, I benched a whole 135lbs. I then passed my next two attempts. I did this because at the time I thought I had re-injured my right tricep muscle/tendon. I ruptured my right tricep tendon in June of 2012. In my training leading up to this particular meet, I thought I did it again, so I took a token bench to ensure my squat would be upheld.
Floor Bench: 2x10 bar, 2x5 95lbs., 3x5 135lbs.
Grey Band Assisted Pull-Ups: 2x5, 1x3-Horrible attempts, and I almost tipped over my cage doing so. It will need to be either bolted to the garage floor or bolted to a lifting platform I am going to build this weekend.
Body Weight Push-Ups: 3x10
EZ Bar Curls: 1x10 bar, 3x10 bar+20lbs.
Red Band Tricep Pushdowns: 3x10
My tricep feels fine. I finished this workout about an hour ago and still feel a pump in my biceps and triceps. Summer is almost here, and I need to look good in our pool.
