Today was boring. Boring...but big. Yeah, gonna stop doing that now. It's getting out of hand.
I'm off creatine as of yesterday.
Swiss bar military press:
130 x 5
150 x 3
170 x 9
> Awesome, I'm as strong as I was before when using a regular barbell. Had another rep in me, but I'm not truly going to push it until the third week. I was worried that doing dumbbells for so long meant that I'd detrain from pressing weight heavier than 160, but nope. This was a morale-booster. Make sure to keep the bar close to my body at all times. A couple of instances there was outward drift and it made my shoulder feel it. I'm also holding up the last rep of every overhead set to build structural integrity.
Swiss bar press + Fat Gripz:
120 x 5 x 10
10, 10, 8, 8, 7, 7
Swiss bar curls + bands:
> Messed around with a couple of set-ups here to get maximum tension from the band and less from the bar. Think I found a good one by standing on a bench with the band anchored to the floor.
External band rotations:
Rests were a little longer this time. Ended up a 90 minute session.
