- Hammer frame bench press. Up yet another 5lb per arm. I was running right at my limit. Slightly better at keeping it in the pecs and out of the shoulders.
- Inclined bench dumbbell press. Up yet another 5lb per arm. Couldn't do 3x15, but I did manage 12,10,9 (I "cheated" a lot on the very last one.)
- Seated machine fly. This was a slightly different machine, and was very easy at full extention, all the resistance was at the end of the squeeze. That's the opposite force profile of a reclining bench dumbbell fly. Anyway, what that means in practice was that it hit my "narrow chest" hard.
- Seated dumbbell bicep curl. Up 5lb per arm. Got 3x12 instead of 3x15.
- Cycled with bench "V" crunch. We tried to cycle with classical floor pushups, but my "wide chest" was already too baked. Also, I suspect I have a mental block on pushups. "Issues", etc.
- Hammer frame bicep curl. Up 5lb after the first set. It started out feeling "light", but the burn filled my arm rather quickly. I could actually see the pump form in the mirror, and see the seam between the two muscles (thus the "bi" in "bicep"). When I was done with those, it actually was tender merely straightening my arms.
- Ball Plank. I've already explained the Plank. This is the Next Level. I am balancing my feet (starting with the tops of the feet, eventually to be the toes) on a 1 meter exercize ball. Lots of balancing. Lots and lots of lower back.
- Finished off with cross crunches. My abs were too fried to do them "free" on the floor, so I did them on an ab bench, and managed 3x5.
My trainer loves his script to Provigil, it's turned into a huge productivity boost. He was able to party like a collage student on the weekend, AND still do his early morning appointments, AND get all his at-work paperwork done because of it. He is a little worried about when his free sample runs out, but figures that if it gives him more than ten bucks a day in advantage, it will still be worth it to pay for it out-of-pocket.
