Not good planning, but destroyed my triceps today. My arms were visibly shaking through every set of pull throughs and I thought I might collapse.

  • 15×95
  • 10×105

10:00 Bike (sit back, pedals out in front of body)

Steady pace but nothing crazy.

I’m just mashing shit together when I get to the gym and look around. Good enough for a travel week.

Traveled to Cancun yesterday for a work trip. Made it to the resort’s gym before dinner today.

Warm-up

  • 5:00 Spin Bike

Upper

15-12-9

I bit off more than I could choose with the weight choices, so that’s why the descending rep scheme.
