I am doing a great deal of biceps work as I am still recovering from a shoulder injury. I hope to incorporate power cleans into the routine but certain movements such as the lat pull-up and barbell pullovers are out of the question. I also didn’t experience any muscle soreness from this workout and know the biceps to be a small muscle group that easily recovers.

Tuesday – Push

Monday – Pull

Comments:

* I can only pull this kind of weight to my knee. If I drop the barbell below the knee my back tends to round. If I manage to keep the weight at the knee or just above it I have no problems changing direction at the bottom of the lift.

Sunday – Push

* Partial reps are being done as my left shoulder continues to heal. I am finding that heavy partial reps do not irritate the injury in my left shoulder. I am hoping that these partial reps will help preserve the strength I have acquired in the bench press, weighted dip, and overhead press.
