Today begins cycle number five. I'm totally pleased with how today's session went. I got the exact numbers I wanted and also increased the intensity of my assistance work (added weight to the chin ups). This time last cycle I lifted 185lbs for 10. Today had me lifting 190lbs for my final set, and I really wanted to get 10 reps like last month. A 5lb jump may not seem like a lot, but, for me, all increments on pressing exercises (especially anything overhead) makes a noticeable difference so I'm happy with the progress.
Goals for today:
- 5 sets of weighted chin ups (+25lbs): 10reps, 10, 8, 6, 6.
- 5 sets of weighted dips (+45lbs): 10 reps all 5 sets.
