To try and ignite the drive to workout again, I did a fasted morning workout at the office. It left my metabolism fired up for the rest of the day!

warmup: nada

Overhead Press (cambered bar, short rests, clean once then press it out)

25 x 5
75 x 5
95 x 5
*wraps, sleeves*
145 x 10
145 x 10
145 x 10

notes: once strict presses got hard on the working sets (around rep 7 or so), I kept going with push presses.

Incline Closegrip Press on Smith Machine (short rests, shallow incline)

bar + 70 x 3
+120 x 3
*wraps, sleeves*
+140 x 8
+150 x 8
+155 x 8

notes: this office gym doesn’t have an incline bench, so I used the Smith. One silver lining is that I could go thumbless, and really focus in on the triceps.

Spoto Press (short rests, wraps, sleeves)

135 x 5
185 x 8
185 x 9
185 x 9

notes: Spoto felt hard today! Maybe the bar in this gym felt awkward, or maybe the smith incline work tired me out, who knows.

2 Arm DB Rows (90 sec rests, facedown on incline bench, elbows mid-height)

40s x 12
40s x 12
40s x 12

notes: didn’t bother keeping elbows high, just to feel how different it is. I didn’t get a strong contraction, but the movement got a little more explosive.

Superset: DB Front Raises & DB Skullcrushers (90 sec rest)

25s x 12 / 25s x 12
25s x 12 / 25s x 12

Then I had to get back to work! Felt good though. You need to switch it up occasionally to bring the fun back in.
