Monday – Pull Workout

Comments:

* This is the first time being able to do pull-ups again in over half a year since I hurt my shoulder. This weight felt a little heavy so I am going to start back down at 2.5 lbs and work my way back up slowly so that I can allow myself to stretch at the bottom part of the movement. My should injury limited my range of motion and I haven’t allowed myself to stretch the lats in the bottom portion of the chin-up either.

Saturday – Pull Workout

  • Power Clean (w/o straps)
    • 135 lbs x 3 reps
    • 195 lbs, 3 sets x 3 reps
    • 195 lbs, 2 sets x 2 reps*

Comments:

* I couldn’t complete all 3 reps on two of these sets. My goal was to complete 5 sets of 3 reps but I just didn’t have the energy today. If I fail on a set I usually allow myself to rest as much as possible and make make as many attempts as I need to in order to finish all five sets.

Wednesday – Pull Workout

  • Power Clean (w/o straps)
    • 135 lbs x 3 reps
    • 185 lbs, 5 sets x 3 reps*
  • Weighted Chin-up (BW = 191 lbs)
    • 22.5 lbs, 3 sets x 7 reps
  • Barbell Cheat Curl
    • 140 lbs, 3 sets x 7 reps

Comments:

* I failed on the 2nd rep of the first set and the third rep of the fifth set however, I was still able to manage to do three reps on each set. I believe my focus was off today and the power clean is definitely a movement you can’t perform while you are day dreaming.
