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).
Breakfast: 3 scrambled eggs, three sausage, refried beans, black beans, Monster, AGG
Lunch: Blackened chicken, mixed veggies, and spinach at Half Shells
Dinner: Taco salad
Late Snack: roast beef with my Low Carb BBQ Sauce
Other stuff throughout the day: one cup coffee, black
