Workout, 29 November 2009.

November 29th, 2009

Nothing fancy.

  • Warmed up with hard foam roller on lats, traps, and lower back.
  • Lever row machine: 8 reps x 100# warmup, then 3 sets x 8 reps x 160#
    • Felt stronger with each set.
  • EZ-bar curls: 3 x 8 x 85#
    • Form tip: Be sure not to clench your jaw or throat as you do curls; expend that energy doing the work of the exercise instead.
  • Oblique crunches 3 x 20 per side

As an experiment, I’ve been giving myself 4-minute rests before every work set. It seems to allow me to lift more and better.

This was just a good, simple workout. Weightlifting need not be fancy to be effective.
