Delts, Midback, Arms (thunderstruck)

Pretty outstanding workout considering the lack of sleep last night from being thunderstruck. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good thunderstorm – just not when it rolls in at 3 a.m. The thunder itself wasn’t so bad, but the volume of rain and wind was almost deafening…

Note: My current PowerBlock gym split is based on the X-Rep Mass-Detail Workout in the Ultimate Mass Workout e-book.

Summary: A slightly late and slow start to the workout, but it was surprisingly good all things considered. Just as good as Monday, really. The only change today was the sequence on forearms: I did supersets of wrist curls with reverse wrist curls rather than drop sets on each, and changed it up to have flexor work first. Also went to a slightly different angle on the Incline hammer curls before that. Made for a monstrous forearm pump and a difficult time opening the door to get out of the gym. LOL!
