BBS type workout # 19
- 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 - 100 lbs X 9.25 reps
Lat pull-down , narrow grip with 2 sec. ab clench:
137.5lbs + loose weight X 8.25 reps
Shoulder Press - 87.5 lbs X 5.4 reps
Smith Machine horizontal pull-ups - 5 + partials
Leg Press - 420 lbs X 10 reps
Back at 164 lbs. Some progress made again today. Travelling for 2 weeks - will try to get in to a gym twice, but it will be different equipment and I may not be able to post updates til I get back.
