Squats and bench workouts

Back under the bar now that I'm off the toilet. I needed a couple of days on a non-jello diet, too.

Oh wait, not sure what I'm talking about? Read this:

Now that everything is back to normal, this week's workouts are:

#1 - Lower Body

Big total body warm-up

1A) Squats
1B) Box Jumps - sets of 2, and it wasn't until about the 4th set that power really kicked in...that's because my nervous system really seemed to need a long warm-up...often does

2A) Front Squat
2B) Good Morning

That was it for the day. 4 sets of each.

#2 - Upper Body - Meathead for Life!!!

Requires a much smaller warm-up, upper body only, and you can do lower stretching between sets

1A) Bench with Pause (#truth bench)
1B) Chin-up with Knee-up

2A) Close-Grip Bench
2B) V-Grip Pulldown

3A) DB Press
3B) BB Row

4) DB CSR 1&1/2 reps - going to experiment to see how this goes
