Training for Saturday May 17…

My current training split is divided up like this:

Workout 1:
chest, shoulders, and triceps

Workout 2:
back and biceps

Workout 3:
legs and abs

But a little over a week ago I pulled the muscle in my left quad during a leg workout and I’ve been taking it easy by not doing any hard direct leg training (other then cardio).

It is improving, but it is still not 100% so I’m just going to let it rest up before attempting a leg workout. As long as I can still do cardio it’s no big deal this close to the show, as leg size is not a major problem for me.

So for today’s workout I was scheduled to train legs, but I trained back and biceps instead to let my quad heal up.

I warmed up with 10 minutes on the rowing machine.

This is my favourite warm up exercise because it moves all the major muscle groups and gets the blood flowing. I start most of my weight training workouts with at least 5-10 minutes on the rower.

Then I moved on to my back workout…

Hammer Strength Chest Supported Rows:
Worked up to 2 sets of 6 reps with 325 lbs.

Hammer Strength Pull Downs:
worked up to 2 sets of 6 reps with 235 lbs.

V-Bar Lat Pull Downs:
worked up to 2 sets of 10 with 170 lbs.

1 Arm Rear Delt Cable Flyes:
worked up to 2 sets of 6 reps with 45 lbs.

Then I moved on to training biceps and did:

ez barbell curls:
worked up to 2 sets of 6 reps with 110 lbs.

Hammer Strength Seated Curl Machine:
worked up to 2 sets of 6 reps with 130 lbs.

Finished off with a relaxing 20 minutes in the tanning bed and headed home.

Here is a quick video clip practicing my posing after a workout…
I know having the toilets in the back ground is not very appealing LOL
but that’s where the mirror is in the locker room so there’s not much I can do about it…

  1. Looking good, hopefully there will be good coverage of the comp so we can see how you go.

    Maybe you were will really pink from the tanning bed, but I think you need to get a bit more color on your lats. I don't know how long it takes to even out, but the vid made it really standout.

    Good luck and keep up the blogs!!
