One of my main focuses right now is spicing up my training with some unconventional approaches to my lifts. With it being Halloween I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to throw around some chains to help overload the peak of the contraction on lateral raises. Each week I am going to try a few slightly different approaches to my lifts and I really encourage everyone to try something similar in their training. We all can be found guilty of falling into a rut at some point and this is one way to keep things interesting. I really feel that everyone can benefit in some way from slight variations and I regret not trying anything like this sooner. This has allowed me to take a totally different approach to my training and in turn push forward with improvement.
Had a great one and here's how it went....
DB Military- 3x12@100's / 1x10@100's
Standing Lateral raise (With Chains)- 2x10 / 2x8
Smithmachine Upright row (With bands)- 2x8@185+ / 2x10@135+
SA cable rear delt- 2x12 / 2x10
Cable Reverse Shrugs- 4x10
