I don’t like being idle. Two more days without much of anything to do, as I wind up the first of my three weeks off from my main job. I’ll be working the weekend at my second job, but not either of these days. As always, I did nothing particularly useful.
In the evening of both days, however, I had nice gym sessions. Thursday was bench pressing: 6 x 135, 6 x 185, 4 x 205, 3 x 4 x 225, 8 x 185. I also did some machine flies, 4 x 6 at resistance level 10 of 16. Let me tell you, after the benching, the flies hurt. Ouch. Friday was my day for neutral grip pull-ups, and as I had done a total of 30 last time I decided to exceed that amount. Instead of going for maximum reps on the first set or two I simply did 11 sets of three, for a total of 33. I was able to maintain good form on all of them, going down to a full hang and raising myself up until my face was over the bar. It’s not at all uncommon to see people doing pull-ups that are highly deficient in both respects.
