Day Thirty-nine (T, 110208) — First Workout (A)

———–

So today was the first day using Tim’s Occam’s Protocol.  My first Workout A (lats/biceps and shoulders).

(1) Close-grip supinated pull-down × 7 reps (5/5 count)

7 reps was the planned set.  Not knowing what my “fail at 7” weight was, I started out with the machine on level 10 (I have no idea what this translates to in pounds).  I did 9 reps to failure so next time I’ll start on #11.

(2) Machine shoulder press × 7 reps (5/5)

Again, 7 reps was the planned set.  Since I didn’t know my “fail at 7” weight for this one either, I guessed again.  I started out with the machine on 70# and failed at 8.5.  Next time, 80#.

It felt GREAT! I had forgotten how good it feels to really work your muscles like that.  I can’t wait for my next workout on Friday (Workout B, chest & legs).
