Hey guys whats going on, coach lloyd here once again! I know its been a couple days since my last post but I’ve been pretty busy IRL and I apologize for that. Today’s post is actually discussing yesterdays workout which was starting strength. Overall it was a excellent workout and one of my personal bests. With the help of C4 Extreme by Cellucor this was a great workout that I truely feel was 10/10 on the intensity level. So I’ll go ahead and dicuss the stats for starting strength session 12.
Back squats - 3 sets of 5 reps at 110lbs
Now this was very tough, personally its a new record for me. Achieving 110lbs without a squat rack is pretty good for me at least. I feel within the next 5-10 lbs I’ll max out.
Overhead Press – 3 sets of 5 reps at 85lbs
I like this exercise, its tough but it feels great when your lifting a heavy weight clear above your head. The highest I’ve gone in this exercise was 115lbs so we still have a little bit of room before we reach max.
Pull Ups – 3 sets to failure (13/7/7)
This exercise is great, you get so pumped up at the end. Its a struggle to do good form and reps but when you finish you feel like a beast for real! I cycled out Power Cleans for Pull Ups and I’m happy with how it turned out. I feel my strength is increasing nicely with this exercise added to my starting strength program.
The duration of todays workout of Starting Strength was 33 minutes.
Intensity Level Brought: 10/10
