Training Chest & Delts Together
Although I was still tired this morning I’m feeling a little better and getting over this cold I’ve been fighting all week. I’m still not full-steam-ahead so I’m training with moderate intensity. I also had to double-up on a few muscles for each workout this week due to missing Monday.
If there’s any muscle I’m willing to miss it’s shoulders. Your shoulders get worked during your chest and back workouts. But in this case I decided to hit a little delts at the end of my chest workout (I had hit some rear delts and traps after my back workout on Tuesday).
Chest and Delts Workout
Bench Press: 7 sets x 10, 10, 3, 3, 3, 3, 10
Incline Bench Press: 4 sets x 12 reps
Incline Dumbbell Flyes: 4 sets x 12 reps
Dumbbell Lateral Raises: 4 sets x 12 reps
The one thing that stands out immediately about this workout is it’s all free weights. For a while I was using Hammer Strength machines for half of my chest workouts. Those are great machines and certainly have their place, but I’m looking to build some more dense muscle and I believe free weights are the way to go.
I did go a little heavier than I had planned on bench press. Since I’m not training all-out this week I wanted to perform multiple sets. Being that I’ve been taking cold medicine, I wasn’t as strong as I usually am on bench press. I ended up throwing in a few sets of lateral raises for delts. I felt like I got a pretty good pump this morning.
