    DAY ONE 10/7: CHEST

    Warrior mode has begun and the chest day was pretty solid. My chest looks so solid it would make Hannibal Lecter blink for once. Legs tomorrow.

    BARBELL BENCH PRESS: 3 sets 8-10 at 170 lbs, 4-6 at 180 lbs, 12-15 at 145 lbs; watch form and up the second set
    WEIGHT DIPS: 3 sets of 6-8 at 25 lbs; WATCH FORM
    ONE ARM DUMBBELL INCLINE PRESS: 2 sets of 5 per side at 55 lbs; may up this


    SVEND PRESS: Cluster set at 20 lbs
    CABLE CROSSOVERS: 60 seconds AMRAP at 15 lbs


      DAY TWO 10/8: LEGS

      Leg day happened. Tried out some new exercises along with a few old favorites and hopefully this routine will show some good results. Front squat needs some work but I haven't done that since like June so I can't be shocked. 3-D lunges and the super set were particularly interesting, a lot more athletic than what I usually do but I can't complain about them. And the last three exercises burnt me out. I feel as burnt as Freddy Krueger....yes I plan on making Halloween puns all month long. Back tomorrow!

      FRONT SQUAT: 3 sets of 8-10 at 205 lbs, 4-6 at 225 lbs, 12-15 at 155 lbs; watch form
      ROMANIAN DEADLIFT: 3 sets of 6-8 at 155 lbs; may up this
      3-D LUNGES: 2 sets of 5 per side at 30 lbs; may up this

      DUMBBELL STEP-UPS + ADDUCTOR SQUATS: 2 sets of 10 at 50 lbs, body weight for adductor squats; watch form before adding weight

      LEG PRESS: Cluster set at 750 lbs
      STANDING LEG CURL: 60 seconds AMRAP at 50 lbs; OUCH
      STANDING CALF RAISES: 1 set to failure at 205 lbs


        DAY THREE 10/9: BACK

        Ooh back day was pretty solid. I think this day was more successful than leg day or chest day in that I've done these exercises before whereas the other two days had a good number of new stuff. This'll be a fun month I can tell, as fun as every single horror monster crossover and THERE ARE A LOT! Shoulders tomorrow!

        WEIGHTED PULL-UPS: 3 sets of 8-10 at 35 lbs, 4-6 at 45 lbs, 12-15 at 10 lbs; may up the first two sets
        SEATED CABLE ROW: 3 sets of 6-8 at 225 lbs
        KNEELING ONE ARM PULL-DOWN: 2 sets of 5 per side at 90 lbs

        SUPER SET
        STRAIGHT ARM PULL-DOWN + RENEGADE ROWS: 2 sets of 10 at 55 lbs and 25 lbs each

        ZEUS ROWS: Cluster set at 55 lbs; up this
        HYPER EXTENSIONS: 60 seconds AMRAP


          DAY FOUR 10/10: SHOULDERS

          I'm starting to really like this routine. My shoulders right now could probably make even Michael Myers think twice. Arms and Fencing tomorrow!
