Drove back from Philly yesterday and then Niko and I went to the 7:30 class. Pistol Pete was coaching. Workout was very similar to last Monday’s. Something tells me that we’re on a strength program for legs and pull-ups. 🙂
Back Squats Front Squats
B) Pullups 5×10
*RingRows w/ Bicep Curls
Shoulder still isn’t allowing me to go into the back squat position, so I did front squats instead. Since it was less reps than Monday, I scaled up a bit more weight. I went 95, 115, 125, 145, 165 x 3. 145 seemed pretty easy, so I decided to do a 20# jump and go to 165. Failed on my 4th rep. Actually went to failure and I think that’s a good thing. Ring rows were pretty straight forward and I did a light weight for the bicep curls. Pete told me that since I was doing a light weight (due to shoulder stuff) that I should do tempo bicep curls ~3 secs up and ~3 secs down. Made them so much harder, but really felt like i was actually getting a workout in on my biceps.
Worked out next to Joe and Johnny D. and I borrowed space on JD’s board to record my weights.
Post workout, I managed to get JD to do some practice rope swings (scaled, of course). He was tired from the back squats.
Oh, and another sign Niko is getting stronger? I get this IM from him while I’m at work today:
