After yesterdays quick on slaught of legs and brutal chest session I woke tired and flat (yeah this happens to PTs as well). However, i felt this sensation get over ridden by a desire. The desire being i really did want to see the difference in these 12 weeks, and to really get myself back on track from where i left off before i started Bensons Sports Massages.
The training today is another double day arms by myself in the after noon and back with training partner Zak Marshall at the local church, LS Fitness Stafford. The arm session was a quick blast today consisting of a quick warm up on the 2.5kg dumbbells, quickly followed by 15kg dumbbell bicep curls for 12 reps on each arm. This was followed by hammer rope curls on the cable machine still trying to go as heavy as possible for 3 sets of 12 reps, at this point the pump had really started to kick in. To finish biceps off 1 set 12 reps was completed on the arm curl machine which readied me for the final set. The final set included me taking the biceps to total muscular failiure and quickly followed by 6 negatives!......OOOOOOWWWWWW! BICEPS DONE! On ward to triceps. Still suffering from last nights battering i kept it simple and only did 3 sets of 12 reps on the arm extension machine and 3 sets of 12 reps on over head tricep extensions. Even though i was only doing 2 exercises (i know the triceps should be trained harder than biceps because they three heads) i ensured each rep maintained a strong contraction through out the exercise and an adequate stretch was experienced.
2 days in and im feeling positive and up beat with how i am conquering forward with my training and enjoying every minute. I will keep you up to date with tonights back session at 9pm tonight so tuned.
