Wk1: Prilepin Shoulders/Lats

The rest of yesterday's workout. Weight at the gym today: 239. I know I haven't been eating more than I used to. More aerobics in my future, or the training is paying dividends.

Incline Bench Press: 95x10, 115x8, 135x6, 155x3, 175x1, 185x1. I've been considering something besides incline pushups, so this was my little experiment.

Hoist Assisted Neutral Grip Chins (142.5): 79x6, 89x6, 99x6, 109x3, 119x3x5. Solid reps.

Hoist Assisted Dips (219): 79x6, 89x6, 99x3, 109x3, 119x3, 139x3, 159x3, 179x3x5. I have never trained like this in the dip, and it was challenging. Not that I never handled heavy weight in the dip, just not this many times.

Lying Leg Thrusts: 4 sets to failure at 9, 8, 6, 6 reps.

Incline situps: 4 sets to failure at 10, 8, 7, 6 reps.

I had an epiphany when ab work came around, and this about decided for me whether I'll do pushups or not. My Navy Physical Readiness Test is in May, so I figured I could train for higher numbers in abs until then. Thus, training them to failure. I think for pushups, I'm gonna do the same - - - good GPP work for me. I just have to figure out a rep scheme, targets, and maybe even a target weight. Overall, a great workout. My legs feel pretty good today, tomorrow begins Week 2!!!

Hi Alberto,

what sort of stuff will you have to do for the PRT?

I posted an article to answer that very question, Scott.
