Pull B (Abbreviated Version)

Wide Grip Pulldowns: 12,12,10
Trap Bar Rows: 3x10
Chest Supported MTS Rows: 3x12
Bent-over Rear Delt DB Raises: 12,12,10/20,10/20
Seated Hammer Curls: 3x12
Preacher Curls SS w/ Back Extensions: 3x12 each

I am trying not to be too stressed about it. My hours at work for the next two weeks before vacation are going to be long. That's going to cut into my gym time. I guess this was a decent little session. I like my high volume sessions though. And I don't like feeling rushed. When the girl came over the PA about closing time I thought about disk-golfing a 10lb plate at the front desk.

In fact, the mental video of that is cracking me up right now.

Closing time, one last call for alcohol
So, finish your whiskey or beer
Closing time, you don't have to go home
But you can't stay here

Alternating sets are great for time constraints.

I was stronger on incline barbell press than I have been recently. At the end after doing cardio I just felt the need to jump back in and get a couple more sets on chest.

As a result I sat in the car about 20 minutes collecting my shit mentally before I drove home. Then when I got home I sat on the couch in silence for about another 20 minutes. I kicked my ass today. 💪🤜🤕

Those are good days. Sometimes the silence after a workout is just as good as the workout itself.

I flew through this in about 30 minutes to meet my wife at the urgent care clinic to get covid tests for travel. The dipshits turned us away. So I cut my workout short for nothing. Got that negatory this morning though 😉

Where are you off to? Vacation or work?
Going to Manaus, Brazil where my wife is from. Hopefully going to eat some good food. Some parts of the trip are pretty somber. Her mom is super old and not in great shape so this will probably be the last time we see her.

One cool thing I am excited about is we have a boat, I wouldn't say chartered but maybe like reserved. That sounds better and not as woohoo look at me, LOL. At any rate, the guide is going to take us out to the meeting of the waters.

I got two workouts in while I was gone. One in a hotel gym and one at a cool place. I am back at work today and ready to get things back rolling. I have a ton of catching up to do on everyone's journals.

How was your vacation?
It was cool. I saw some really amazing things and met some great people. I also learned a valuable lesson... If your total travel time with connections and everything is more than say 12 hours, schedule a recovery day off work. o_O

I am dragging ass on an epic level today. We got to the airport at like 730am Saturday and got home around 10am yesterday.

Yeah that is tough. I agree. I hate long travel times like that.

Chest (outer focus)

Seated Cable Flies: 3x10
Incline BB Press: 10,8,6,6
Flat-ish DB Fly Trifectas: 4,3,3,2
Dips: 3x12
Machine Press Trifectas: 6,5,4
Pec Deck: 3x12 trying to hold a 2 second squeeze on each rep

I didn't expect to be super strong tonight, so I just tried to stay focused and hit all planned reps. I did have fun and enjoyed getting back in there, even though I had to go searching for plates.
