Meathead for Life Because It Feels So Good

Garage gym workout time.

I used longer rest periods today.

I also used a slower lifting tempo for the split squats. I went with a 3-second eccentric (lowering) phase as my legs were a little sore and tight from Tuesday's squat session.

Started with a big warm-up, including 100 bodyweight squats (5 sets of 20).

The main workout was done in Jim Wendler's "Boring But Big" fashion.

1A) Powerblock Split Squat - 5 sets of 10 per side
1B) KB 1-Arm Overhead Press - 4 sets of 6 per side
1C) Powerblock Chest Supported Row - 5 sets of 10

2) KB Swings - 10x10 (every minute on the minute, as the cool kids are doing these days)

3A) Powerblock Curls - 4 sets of just because I love it
3B) Powerblock Triceps - 4 sets of it feels so good to get a muscle pump

By the way, I reviewed all the TT Meathead and 2013 roster of workouts here:
