Before we get to that, I wanted to offer up a tip for shoulder pain during a workout. Alright, let’s say you’re working shoulders, doing rounds of lateral raise dropsets. You know that unbearable pain you get in your shoulders? For me it’s worse than any other muscle pain one can get from intense work. Well, I’ve discovered a way that will alleviate it instantly.
When your shoulders start to burn, either walk up to the dumbell rack, or set up an incline bench that’s a little higher than where your hands rest. Now, take your hands, rest them on the bench or rack, and lean into them a little bit. It’ll completely alleviate the pain, as it prevents your arms from putting the normal amount of strain on your shoulders, and allows them to rest up. Give it a shot next time they’re burning so bad that you’re about to head-butt the leg-press machine. Which doesn’t even make sense, but those shoulders can freaking hurt.
Alright, on with today’s workout….
Pre-Workout: 24oz of water, 2 scoops C&C Muscle Milk, 5g Glutamine, 2g Kre-Alkalyn Creatine.
Rack Pull – [bar below the knees, no straps] 225×5, [with straps] 250×5, 5
Seated Machine Row – 130×12, 8, 9, 60SRP

HammerStrength One-Arm Row – 100×10 for 5 sets, 30SRP

What you do here is take an EZ-bar cable attachment, and at first grab the wide handles and do a set until you’re a rep or two from failure, then grab the inner handles and do the same. Fantastic move for the biceps.
HammerStrength Preacher Curl – 45×10 for 3 sets, 30SRP
Delt Fly Machine – 60×10 for 5 sets, 15SRP
Post-Workout – 20oz of Gatorade, 20 minutes after that 2 scoops of C&C Muscle Milk with 5g Glutamine & 2g of Kre-Alkalyn.
Alright, cats, I’ll see you tomorrow for legs.
