For us hardened, iron loving freaks, de-load weeks usually comes as a bit of a god send, having punished the body with increasing ferocity for 3 weeks non stop!
For Sean and Joe, this week was no different, they had trained hard and things had gone well – they had earned a bit of stretching, foam rolling and horsing around with some ART techniques!
For me, well, I had some unfinished biz to attend to. For starters, my head had been up my backside for the last 2 weeks or so. Training, subsequently had not gone well and to top it all off, a nice bout of food poisoning had just been the icing on the cake.
So, instead of de-loading i decided to take out my frustration on the weights.
Here’s what I cranked out today… short, simple, but it did the trick nicely:
a) Seated military press with chains – up to 1RM
b1) Seated Bradford press with chains
b2) mixed grip chins
c1) BB standing tricep extensions
c2) BB curl + chains and fat grip
Nothing clever just got the job done!
Looking forward to hitting legs tomorrow for some strange reason ;-P
