My Journey: Geared and Ready

After taking a week off for a little R&R with family and friends, it's back to work. Over the past two weeks I have been slowly transitioning to more powerlifting style workouts. I haven't seen the strength results I want in the high rep sets I have been doing, so I am going to decrease reps and load up the weights.

Today's main focus was back and I brought back the deadlifts. There is not a better exercise on this planet for building a back and overall strength than the deadlift. I took it out of my routine for a bit because of a nagging back, but I am going to really focus on form and hopefully my back woes will disappear. I didn't notice any twinges or anything during the workout, so I am glad I brought them back. However, I will be sore tomorrow - no doubt.

Today's Workout

Ab Machine 3x10
Deadlifts 5,5,3,3,1 (main back)
Bent Rows 5x5
Upright Bar Rows 5x5
Bar Shrugs 5,5,5,5,1
Lat Pulldowns 5x5
Dumbbell Curls 5x5
Dumbbell Hammer Curls 5x5

There will be sweat, there will be blood, there will be gains.
