Decided to super set reverse flies with overhead tricep extensions. This seems like a decent time saver and I don't think performance on either lift dropped off too significantly.

Felt kind of sluggish in the gym today, especially on my initial lifts, but I grinded through. I really like the seated plate loaded row (similar to this: https://fitnessprogramer.com/exercis...ed-seated-row/) with an overhand grip. I get a good stretch and pump. I think I'm going to drop the chest supported t-bar row for a couple weeks and use this machine instead.

I was planning on doing leg extensions but my quads were absolutely cooked after split squats, so decided to do some light back extensions instead.

Hack squats were hard and split squats were really hard. Pretty sure I had 0 or 1 RIR. The one good thing I did on second set of split squats was rest ~15-20 seconds between legs, which I should be doing more often. I needed to take a full 5 minutes before I could even attempt light leg extensions.

DB benches were all occupied so I tried smith machine bench for what may be the first time ever. I remember when I used to think that using the smith machine was the worst piece of equipment in the gym and anyone who used it was an idiot who didn't know what they were doing. Oh how times have changed.

I liked it but any type of barbell bench has historically bothered my shoulders, so I probably won't stick with it. Incline DB bench feels good and never seems to bother me, so I'm not inclined to switch simply for variation's sake.

Fine although I could have pushed a little harder on leg press, as evidenced by my last set in which I increased the reps. Hack squat is definitely superior imo but I decided to switch it up today. I also skipped split squats because I wanted a break from them.

Took last two days off for lifting but there was a good chunk of basketball in there, including about 2 hours of full court yesterday.

I feel slight discomfort in my shoulder which I'm going to blame on Smith machine bench, so back to dumbbells for bench it is. It's a shame. I was liking it. I feel like I'm either doing something wrong or my shoulders were simply not built for barbell bench.

First time doing katana extensions. Getting the set up right was a little weird but was fine once I figured it out.

Ok. Leg press was challenging but fine, maybe rpe 7 or 8. I probably could have done 3x18 if I pushed myself. Split squats were a 10 rpe. I doubt I could have gotten another rep on last set.

Somewhat abridged workout because I was working out with the wife and didn't want to go crazy with volume. Still, 12 working sets for back and 4 for biceps is more than plenty, especially since I do pull 2x/week.
