Back to School and Back Bustin
I'm back to school and have my first week under my belt. There is definitely a significant difference between training at home and training at school. First, at home I am able to eat alot more and I also train in a better atmosphere I think. The Turner Center at Ole Miss is filled with alot of people, most of whom do not know how to train or do not train as intensely as I would prefer. The only reason this bothers me is because it makes it a less intense atmosphere. However, before I went out for the first friday night back (hopefully not to ruin all progress) I had a very good back workout. I had a little problem because there was someone squatting where I usually deadlift. I am very impatient, so rather than waiting I did my 1 Arm rows first. This definately hurt my grip on the deadlift, but luckily I only went up to 75% for 2 reps. So here was my workout:
1 Arm Rows: worked up to 150 lb. dumbbells for 18 reps each side.
Deadlift: worked up to 395x2 (75%) and did 5 sets of 5 for speed at 315
Chest-Supported Rows: 4x5
Reverse Grip Pulldowns: 3x12-15
Hammer Curls: 3x8-10
Low Pulley Curls supersetted with wide grip barbell curls: 3 sets
Just trying to get a wide back!!
After the back workout I had a weekend filled with hangin with friends, feelin like a bad person, and sleeping with the Ripster.
