Upper Body March 19

So.  Had an absolutely great upper body workout tonight.  I've been
training with an ex NFL player who does a lot of endurance type work
with TRX, agility ladders etc.  I've been leaving the gym feeling like I
have energy left and have been pretty ticked about it to be honest. 
Furthermore, I haven't been getting sore which to me, means a lack of
meaningful progress.... weeelllll.. my trainer wasn't here today!  So,
taking advantage of the situation, I beasted it out lol.  Can't say the
endurance I had today may not have been in part to his workouts though.



Workout:



Warmup -


2 sets lat pulldown 20x120 20x150


2 sets dumbell press 25x20 25x20



DTP style pyramid with Supersetted lat pullovers and dumbell press


45x30 lat + 45x30 press


70x15 lat + 70x15 press


100x5 lat + 100x5 press


100x5 lat + 100x5 press


70x15 lat + 70x15 press


45x30 lat + 45x30 press



Burnout - 


2x20x70lb cable crossover



Arms Pyramid:  Skullcrushers supersetted with hammer curls


30x30 bi + 50x30 tri


45x15 bi + 70x15 tri


65x5 bi + 110x5 tri


65x5 bi + 110x5 tri


45x15 bi + 70x15 tri


30x30 bi + 50x30 tri


Got an amazing pump now!  It's sad that I've got to wait for my
trainer to not be there to get my real workouts in.. needless to say,
I'll be learning what I can from the guy for the prepaid sessions and
heading back to my original workout plan.

Trouble with body measurements

So.. I went about updating my body stats tonight and see some weird results probably coming from crappy measuring methods.  1) my fat calipers are the free bb.com ones and they request you use fat folds that are honestly in pretty awkward positions.  Secondly, I'm in college and dont exactly have someone around to sit there and measure my stats for me and doing it myself results in just an epic failure of quality results.  Think I will probably rely on progress pics, weight and lifting stats rather than body dimensions from now on as I can reliably compare them..

Chest Day

Good day in the gym.. second week working with 100 dumbells on chest and I'm pretty happy about it. Definite mental block moving up as I was working with around 70's only 2 weeks ago. Getting over that is pretty nice.

Getting well into the first week of my transformation and seeing the standard first week of dropping water weight. About 12 pounds down plus or minus and am starting to see an endurance drop in the gym consistent with the fat burn so.. now that I know its a good thing, I guess I am glad to see it.

Chest Day:

Barbell 1-rep max set for BodySpace.
3 sets flat dumbell press. 85-85-100 with a 55 dropset.
3 sets decline dumbell press 65-65-65 with 25 dropset. (Need to develop in this area)
3 sets flyes (machine fly) 120-110-100

Tricep pull down with a V-Bar, triple dropset 90-60-30
Skull Crushers 55 with a supersetted close grip press. (At this point completely dead. Usually doing 80 lb)

Wrap the day up with 3 sets leg raises, 3 sets raised leg situps and 25 mins cardio.... OUCH

Really want to see some development on my outer pecks because I feel my upper body is pretty underdeveloped.. not sure what is good for this though..
