Strength Training Beginning Week 7

Monday, September 23, 2013

Week 7 Started Saturday, September 21, 2013; Cardio 60-Minutes before breakfast.
Standing Cable Hamstring Curls 2x10x10, 2x10x12.5, 5x5x15 (50 Reps @ 700); good exercise to loosen hams.

Seated SSB Good Mornings 5x8x66 (40 Reps @ 2640). This exercise assists in developing the upper erectors; it is needed to control the Safety Squat Bar’s tendency to push the torso forward. Explaining this principle is:

Monday, September 23, 2013; Cardio 60-Minutes before breakfast.
Squat SB 2x5x66, 3x5x86, 2x5x106, 2x5x106, 2x5x126, 5x5x146 (70 reps @ 7,920 Lbs.); Finally squatted 5x5x146; I attempted this in week 5 but could not reach 5x5. emoticon

Bench 2x5x65, 2x5x75, 1x5x105, 3x5x100, (40 reps @ 3,425 Lbs.); Bench went well; went for 105 and made one repetition. That was a real victory as since my shoulder surgery I had difficulty benching 35 pounds. Finished my bench at 3x5x100. emoticon

Bent Over Rows 3x5x95, 2x5x120, 5x5x130, (50 reps @ 5,325 Lbs.). Upped my row’s by 5 pounds
Total Volume for Monday; 160 Repetitions for 17,220 pounds. Have a good lift, Earl

    I wish I had the energy to start weight training.
    I'm told it is good for women as well. You are really
    doing well, so just watch that shoulder of yours.
    Have a great week. emoticon
