That was a hardcore Torched Tuesday Workout. Chest and triceps were particularly on fire, but lats were in the deep-burn zone, too. Funny that I wasn’t actually feeling 100% (let’s just call it “stomach issues”), but strength was up and focus was unreal…
Chest: DB incline presses (2×10,8 + X Reps); DB incline flyes (1×10(8)—drop + X Reps); Dips (1×15—Stage) ss DB bench presses (1×8 + X Reps); DB flyes (1×10(8)—drop + X Reps)
Lats: Parallel-grip chins (2×12,8 + X Reps); Chins (1×8—X-cen) ss DB pullovers (1×12 + X Reps); Chins (1×10 + X Reps) ss Under-grip chins (1×7 + X Reps)
Triceps: DB extensions (2×12,8 + X-Rep presses); Decline close-grip extensions (1×10 + X Reps) ss Stiff-arm kick backs (1×10) ss Bench dips (1×10 + X Reps); Overhead extensions (1×8 + X Reps) ss Stiff-arm kickbacks (1×10) ss Bench dips (1×6—X-cen)
Abs: Knee ups (2×12) ss Bench V-ups (2×10) ss Full-range crunches (2×12,10 + X Reps)
Note: My split is based on the Ripping Phase Routine in the Beyond X-Rep Muscle Building e-book.
Torched Tuesday Summary
Wow! I knew it would be a good workout, but I didn’t think it would be as great as it was. I had some serious stomach rumbling all morning, which I figured would slow me down or sap some strength. Nope! Focus was crazy intense and strength wasn’t diminished a bit. Plenty of deep-burning feel on chest work, lats pumped up very nicely, and triceps started a bit slow but ended really well. Ab work almost brought on a few tears of pain, too. LOL! Regardless of how well it went, I don’t necessarily want to start legs tomorrow with the same stomach “discomfort.” Ha!
