Week 2: Workout A

16 May

Week 2: 5/16/11

Todays workout was not that bad at all! DOMS has subsided and it felt good to lift again!
Dropped the weights to what I should have started with in the first place and everything went smooth. Was in and out of the gym in an hour and few minutes. This is doing the whole 5×5 workout plus accessory exercises plus foam rolling and dynamic stretching Pre-workout!

Best part is that my wife bought me a new pair of shorts that cut off above the knees! I have a bunch of basketball shorts that go a little below the knee and it annoys the hell out of me when it catches on my skin when I do squats!
Mental Note to Self: Wear short shorts for squatting! 😀

Workout Notes:

Squats:


Squats felt good today. Did all of them in a good amount of time with very limited rest time in between.
I think my form is good as well and happy with the whole routine.
Maybe I should slow down a bit on the descent though.

Overhead Press:

Decent sets.
Felt a little light but I know this is the lift I always stall 1st so just going to enjoy the ride in my progressive lift for this.

Deadlift:

Think I find the right starting weight now.
I think I may need to slow down my pace a bit on the descent back down.
Last rep I think I over-extended my back a bit but not too bad.
Need to keep an eye on that.

Chin-ups:
Chins felt not too heavy but not too light either. Maybe I should have started at + 10-15 lbs.

Prone Bridge:
Not as bad today but I did feel the burn!
