BBS type workout # 17
- 8 second counts positive & negative
- 5 exercises in quick succession
- one set only
- all exercises to positive failure - or as close as I can safely get.
(Not strictly BBS which is 15 secs pos + neg, also now rotating exercises to work on weak areas - see comments on Drew Baye.
Another point is that BBS recommends specific older Nautilus machines because they have cambers which distribute the load more evenly throughout the movement - I don't have access to them.)
Chest Press - 87.5 lbs + loose weight X 9.75 reps
Lat pull-down , narrow grip with 2 sec. ab clench:
137.5lbs + loose weight X 8 reps
Shoulder Press - 87.5 lbs X 5.25 reps
Smith Machine horizontal pull-ups - 4.5 + partials
Leg Press - 420 lbs X 8 reps + 3 partials
Made good progress today. Session was one day early as I will be travelling from tomorrow until the middle of next week. No significant change in body weight or waist measurement this week.
