Triceps and Biceps (all back to back):
Lying tricep extensions + wide grip standing curls (ez-curl bar): 50×20 reps, 30 seconds rest between each set
Close-grip Cable pushdowns: 135×10, 120×12, 120×10 (running out of steam quickly)
Seated cable concentration curls: 45×10, 45×8 (out of steam after the last one)
Machine tricep extensions: 3 sets x failure
Standing hammer curls: 25 lbs x 15 reps x 3
Rope cable extensions: 1 set of 15 reps … absolutely knackered after this and went home.
Still feeling underpowered at the gym this morning, but managed to push to failure on every set. Weights were lower or same as last time I did arms, but reps were up and I rested less between sets so that’s good. I skipped forearms.
The knee is shot from yesterday’s bike ride so I’ll stuff the canoe on Buntzen Lake this afternoon and circle it for a few hours. That should be fun, Anita will drop me off at 3, grab the kid from school and pick me up for a picnic at 5:30. I plan on paddling non-stop for 2.5 hours, very doable usually, we’ll see how my body feels this afternoon.
