Heck yeah! Everything felt great today!! Even though my wimpy bench press was with only 85#, my 4 sets of 10 felt super easy! I didn’t bump weight because I’m being careful not to reinjure an old shoulder injury.
I knocked out 4 Tri-Sets today! A tri-set is when I combine 3 exercises to make a set. When I train upper body, I like to pick a chest exercise, a shoulder exercise, and a tricep exercise to make a set. I’ve bumped my weight and reduced my number of reps. So I’m now training sets of 10-12 with heavier weight. This is a change from a higher rep range of 3 sets of 15-20 or more. I’m now dipping my toes into muscle building. Yeah buddy!
I hope you got some cool exercise ideas!
Haver a killer day!

THIS was a really fun workout!!!!
I group 4 exercises for the first 2 sets and called them “POWER-set’s”. I picked one chest exercise, one shoulder exercise, 1 tricep exercise and 1 core exercise. I kept a higher rep range, about 15-25 for each exercise, and did 4 sets of them.
Tri-set 3 was only 3 exercises. I picked Close-Grip Bench press to work both the chest and triceps then selected 1 shoulder exercise and 1 core exercise.
I then wrapped it up with a shoulder finisher, this was killer! Just one set! Burn em’ out!!!

This was a really fun training sesh! I wanted to group 1 chest exercise with 1 shoulder exercise and 1 core exercise to create tri-sets. This way, I get lots of work in during a shorter period of time.
I focused on higher rep ranges (15-20) and 3 sets of everything. Rest times were minimal in between the exercises and longer in between sets (really just enough time to break it down and set up for the next superset).
It was super humid today so I got a really great sweat session too. I have fans but don’t turn them on because I really like training in the heat and sweat it out!
I’ve been dealing with a funky left shoulder for months and I really think it’s a combination of sleeping on my side and lack of training during the Spring semester. I can already tell training and doing yoga is really helping because it’s feeling already. I think it’s just been jarred up and needs to be worked out =)
Hope you get some exercise ideas from today’s upper body workout!
Have a great day,
