Bizarro Workout World at the Gym

Ladies, ladies! Etiquette at the gym please! One gal coughed all over my water bottle & another had worse B.O. than all the guys combined!

It was bizarro world at the gym today, I guess.

There was even a woman using the one and only squat rack for non-squat exercises, so I decided to squat tomorrow and go with a super classic Meathead Monday upper body pump workout.

Big warmup, including WYLIT and Band pulls for the upper back, and a few sets of pushups plus many bench press warm-up sets for the chest, triceps, and shoulders.

1A) Bench Press with 1-second pause at bottom - 3x5, 2xAMRAP (triceps fatigued first!)
1B) Chest-Supported Wide Grip Row - 4x10, 1xAMRAP

2A) Pulldowns
2B) DB Incline Press

3A) Face Pulls
3B) Triceps

Classic triceps pump at the end of this one. The paused bench weak point - for me, anyways - was triceps. Better bring the strength up there with some close-grip barbell presses and neutral grip db presses.

Great times, great meathead training. Just like the old days.

Tomorrow I will squat.

After training everything was back to normal, with some ladies asking some great questions.

Q: What is the best workout to lose that stubborn 4% fat that likes to linger around? I'm a indoor cycle coach just cant seem to lose it! Thanks.

Answer:
The 4-week "Turbulence Training for Buff Dudes-Hot Chicks" workout that is part of the Advanced TT workouts here
