Looking back through my log, I went from Feb 4th to the 21st without a day off. Granted some of those days were just Arms, but still 18 days straight!

Friday was off and much needed, I was crushed from legs. Thursday afternoon I was messing around in the gym with the little guy and did a bunch of hip thrusts, so in addition to the quad and adductor DOMS I had on Friday, my glutes were on fire as well!

Saturday - Bench

* Bandwork between sets; facepulls and external rotations

* Did doubles today instead of triples and went heavier

Bench Press
220, 230, 240, 250, 260, 270, 280x2
226x9 - cluster set (pauses at top, no reracks)
226x8 - cluster set
226x7 - cluster set
158.5x4, 4, 3, 3, 2, 2, 1, 1 - 10 second rest
2 more rounds, increasing to 160

BWx10, 8, 7

Bench Press
112.5x5, 5 second hold, 4 reps, 4 second hold, 3 reps, 3 second hold, 2 reps, 2 second hold, 1 rep, 1 second hold - all done continuously, no rest
2 more rounds with 112.5 (last round I tapped out on the 3 rep set, got 2 and called it quits)

Sunday - Deadlift

* Last deadlifted on the 9th, 15 days ago. I've been hitting squats more.

363.5x5, 9 sets

SS w/

Leg Extension
80x10, 7 sets

Shrugs - rest period was just time to strip off weight
256x10 - each rep was slow descent, pause to eliminate momentum and a 3 second squeeze at the top

170, 180, 190, 200x10

Monday AM - Arms, 5 superset combos

Monday - Lunch - Delts

The 3 year old wanted to "work out". So while he played with the pink dumbbells, I did some rear delts and lateral raises.
