Feeling tired? Depressed? Unmotivated? That’s how I felt today too……until I demanded suffering upon myself

Yeahhhhh buddy! Having a shitty day has a prescription – EXERCISE HARD!!!

Today I woke up unmotivated, tired, depressed, lazy, heavy, gravitationally challenged, but as soon as I hit the gym I turned it all around! And now I feel relaxed, pumped, calm, happy and glad that I went to the gym and won the battle with myself…..

Didn’t feel the need to go real heavy, especially on chest days…… I have a real attitude about doing chest because my whole life all I ever hear is how much ya bench? How much ya bench? How much ya bench? How much ya bench? Etc…….if you saw me do easy REPS on barbell curls with 233lbs, rows with 455lbs, shoulder presses with 315lbs, trap bar deadlifts with 720lbs,  then maybe you would leave me alone and ask someone else how much they bench…..grrrrrrr to hell with bench press – back strength and forearm power is what gets me fired up!

But since some people are interested in what kind of weights I throw around, this is what my chest workout was like tonight:

Incline Bench in the power rack – 333lbs for 2 sets of 8-10 reps

- 229lbs for 3 sets of 17-19 reps

- 133lbs for 2 sets of 33-50 reps

Dumbbell flys on the ground – 75lbs for 3 sets of 8-13 reps

Cable chest squeezes (one arm) – 100lb stack for 3 sets of 10 reps

Why the random reps and odd drop sets? Well, I felt like crap when I got to the gym – just kinda went thru the motions with no focus, but by the time I got to cable squeezes I was feeling great! And my chest had a hell of a pump! Like I said on facebook, “Dumbbell flys on the ground haha……a painless end to a painful chest workout……I can’t even lift my arms……stay tuned, BLOG coming tonight about training chest on NO energy! Success is fucking mental chief – just DO IT”

That’s what I’m asking of you……just go out there and DO IT – you will feel better my friend

Take care all,

Big Bald Mike

    I’m with you on the bench thing — I got a wacky shoulder so I only use dumbells.
