Bench Press Workout

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you. I had some Green Tea to celebrate, and got fired up to head to the gym for a bench press workout.

It was a beautiful 14 degrees celcius (no idea what that is in Farenheit, use the google to convert) on my way to the gym...and it was funny to see the Canadians out on patios drinking beer already at 1pm.

Once I got to the gym, it was all business.

1A) Bench Press - worked up to 255x3
1B) Back Extension - 4x8 holding 30 pounds behind head

2) Power Shrug - 225x3x6

3A) DB Incline Press - 4x8 at 80pounds
3B) DB Row - 4x6-8 at 110 pounds

Wednesday off, then deadlift Thursday, and off to Vegas on Friday.

7 rules of lifting

I was so disappointed not to see the controversial post on post-workout nutrtion that you promised for today... the suspense is killing me!

Hey, Craig. Great workout! I'm new to working out, so this may be a silly question. When you say you did a DB Incline Bench Press with 80 lbs., does that mean 80 lbs. on each DB (160 lbs. in all) or 40 lbs. on each DB (80 lbs. in all)? And what is the standard of saying how much you lift when using DB? The weight of individual DB or the combined weight of both?
