Didn’t have to go into work today, as some conferences preempted training.  Next week should be the end of the training phase, and I’ll finally be able to get into actual selling.  Can’t wait.  I got to the gym about 4:30 for a lengthy and tough session.  Deadlifts: 6 x 6 x 245.  No difficulty with these at all, next week it’s probably time to go up to 265.  Precor triceps pushdowns: 10 x 100, 10 x 105, 10 x 110, 10 x 115.  It was very tough getting through the last set at 115, I still can’t imagine how I made it.  One-arm dumbbell rows: 4 x 8 x 100/100.  This is an old favorite exercise, and more or less at the spur of the moment I decided to try it instead of cable rows.  It’s one exercise for which proper form is vital.  There’s a temptation to cheat by twisting one’s upper body to the side, which defeats the whole purpose of the exercise.  Come to think of it, another classic back exercise – barbell rows – is much the same, with a fine line between proper form and cheating.  Next, I moved onto triceps rope pushdowns, 8 x 100, 8 x 110, 8 x 100, and finished up with Precor chest presses, 10 x 160, 10 x 175, 10 x 180, 10 x 185. By this time I was pretty much beat out.
