Entry #384

DE upper~body

135 lbs., 3 reps
6 sets

Barbell skullcrushers:
110 lbs., 8 reps
5 sets

8, 6, 6, 5, 4 reps
Performance on this exercise is actually improving as I gain weight.

Hise shrugs:
225 lbs., 12 reps
3 sets

Perhaps above all, I managed to close the #1 gripper today in my right hand. My positioning was wrong; the bar wasn't fitted deep enough into my palm. I only did it once, but I don't think buying the trainer is necessary. That single rep wasn't difficult at all, but the second attempt met with failure. It's a very uneven experience.


  1. I've been wanting to incorperate push presses into my workout for a while.  Do you plan to use them as a ME lift ever, or stick with DE?

  2. Yes, after the next three weeks. They're a great lift.
