Training bodyparts

Back in the gym tonight to hit shoulders, upper back, hamstrings, and arms.  Still not doing the type of volume typical of a true hypertrophy program but considering what I've been doing, it felt like a lot of work.

For the next 5 weeks, I'll probably stay on a hybrid bodypart/movement split to focus extra attention on muscle groups that will need to be augmented in order to build my squat, bench press, and deadlift to new plateaus.

I found out my left arm is significantly weaker than my right arm.  No doubt that is impacting my bench press progress so I'll need to get that corrected.  The last time I spent any time doing 1 arm db overhead presses, I didn't have such a significant discrepancy between arms so I know it can be corrected.  As it is right now, I'll need to keep the weights pretty low until my left arm catches up.

1 arm DB press:  65x8, 65x6, 65x5 with left arm, 10 reps with right arm

DB rear delt rows:  72.5x10 x3 sets

Kirk Shrugs:  225x8x3 sets

Stiff legged deadlifts:  225x10, 275x8x3 sets

Lateral raises:  drop set #1, 30x8, 25x6, 20x5, drop set #2, 30x5, 25x5, 20x5

Rope Pushdowns:  50x15, 60x8, 60x6

Hammer curls:  40x8, 45x6, 45x6

After I was done I didn't have the urge to take a shirtless selfie in the locker room so I probably forfeited my gains.  Either that or I just don't have the douchebag gene.
