I had every intention of going to the gym yesterday however my favorite bar is attatched to the gym that I go to. I "accidently" walked into the wrong door and found myself in the bar and not the gym. At that point there was no turning back...only curls I did involved pints of Highland Gaelic. Will try again next week....

That's quite the coincidence that your fav bar is next to your gym there JR.

That's basically what I did... just not quite as much warmup, which may have been the issue... I think I need to do some pec deck flies or something to stretch out a bit... but otherwise I did almost exactly what you said with slightly different weights...

4x275, 6x245, 8x225, 10x185 and I was wore out.

my heavy set is nowhere near that, so i'm not as concerned about injury with a light warmup. you definitely want to get the blood in your muscles more than i need to

Man, ima tell you what... That reverse pyramid chest day Thursday has thrown me for a loop. I did legs Friday, cardio and abs yesterday and I was supposed to golf this morning with my dad but he's down with his back so I went to the gym and did shoulders and I'm STILL sore from Thursday. Unbelievable. Must be those reverse pyramids.

I had to basically just do traps and rear delts today to avoid my upper chest and front delts...

I've got 3 weeks of full body workouts under my belt now, and only one week of reverse pyramids. from doing the reverse pyramids i can already feel my pecs pushing into my biceps.

Hey biscuit, can you recommend some good gyms in WIlmington, I'm going to be looking to join one in the next month or so but the online reviews seem to be all over the place.
