Today was my 2nd Power Push Day (chest, shoulders and triceps) but it was the first one that really counts. The first power workout was my very first workout back after my post competition layoff. Needless to say, that wasnt much of a power day lol
This day went well. I was able to throw up the 110 pound dumbbell for a few sets of 5 reps. I am very confident that my strength will return and I will be able to go heavier.
By the time I got to the barbell shoulder press, I was starting to feel it hard, which reflected my numbers. I still feel like I got some good quality sets in, but I am eager to gain strength. However, I know that I have to be patient in order to avoid any injuries.
So basically for this session there was alot of power pressing. Certain exercises I targeted a 3-5 rep range, while others were in a 6-8 rep range.
Incline dumbbell press, barbell shoulder press and close grip bench press were my 3-5s. In addition to that I through in some other pressing movements in a slightly higher range.
