All-Out 8-Week Mass Attack. No Holds Barred.
Day # 8 of 56 - 01-18-01
Man, the two days off for the weekend really hit the spot. It was nice to be able to sleep in, which with a kid was 8:00 AM, but that is still four hours more sleep than during the week. I kept my diet identical this weekend as I am trying for optimal growth. I continued with all my supplements except I cut the creatine down to 10g instead of 20g a day.
Today I decided to move chest to Monday and shoulders to Tuesday. If you remember I was really weak on chest day due to my shoulders being blasted from the prior day. I felt strong but still didn't want to push it too hard because my shoulder is still pulling a little from last week.
I started off on calves doing my typical calf work, nothing special.
After warming up thoroughly it was off to chest.
Incline Bench - 3 warm up sets, 1 x 4 - 225lbs, 1 x 4 - 245lbs, 1 x 3 - 255lbs, 1 x 6 225lbs
Flat dumbbell bench - 1 x 10 - 70lbs, 1x10 - 80lbs, 1 x 10 - 90lbs
Decline bench - 2 x 10 - 225lbs
Dumbbell flies - 1 x 10 - 45lbs, 2 x 10 - 70lbs
Cable crossovers - 1 x 10 - 70lbs, 1 x 10 - 100lbs, I finished with a drop set from 100lbs-70lbs-40lbs for 6 reps each.
Hammer curls - 1 x 10 - 45lbs, 2 x 8 - 95lbs, 1 x 10 - 50lbs
Reverse cable curls - 1 x 10 - 100lbs, 1 x 10 - 110lbs, 1 x 10 - 120lbs
Wrist curls - 3 x 15 - 135lbs
Wrist twists - 3 x 20 - 40lbs
Wrist curls with dumbbells - 3 x 20 - 50lbs
Overall I felt really good today, very refreshed and rested from the weekend. I can feel myself growing daily. My muscles are look fuller and thicker almost daily. With whatever I did to my shoulder on Monday of last week it is really affecting my pressing movements and unless it subsides I don't know if I will be able to meet my goals set for some of my exercises. But pulling movements are not a problem so I will blast through those in a couple of weeks if all goes well. But none of it should or will affect growth.
I will give some updates on some measurements next on the end of next week to chart my progress.
