Shoulders and Back Day

Shoulder, Arms and Back Day
Commercial Gym: 0530

Warm up: Standing DB presses: 15 lbs – 12 reps x 2/ 1 arm DB Swings: 15 lbs/12 reps per arm x 2

Workout Proper:
– Standard Sitting Military Barbell Press (Olympic Bar)
135 lbs x 4 reps
185 lbs x 4 reps
1 rep max: 190 lbs (added 2 ½ lb plates to each side). Felt pretty strong here surprisingly today as well.

On a mission this week to determine my 1 rep maxes. This morning I was able to determine my 1 rep max on the Military Press. Was able to do 2 complete reps on my own with 3rd rep with a spotter while still maintaining good form throughout and it was back on working on my back and shoulders with lighter weight the rest of the way. Whoohoo! I guess you can call that my 2 rep max…but I’m happy with 190 lbs for now.

Finished this workout with a good back, arm and shoulder routine I worked on last night on paper. Felt good this morning. No HIIT today as I added an extra HIIT yesterday afternoon post Heavy leg day and early afternoon nap.

Will be gauging my Back rep maxes with the Pull up exercise with a weighted vest. Not going for one reps here but more to failure and see how that goes next week…
