My ER schedule and kids activities painted me into a corner of 2 workouts in 10 days. I could have waited the full 10 days, but I needed to blow off some steam. My first workout had to be done at Clemson University’s Fike Gym because UE was booked up.
Cybex Lateral Raise
Rear Delt Machine
Dumbbell Overhead Press
Close Grip Bench on Smith Machine
I thought I was going to have to do the next workout at Fike also, but Ed had a last minute cancellation at UE. I did the following workout under Ed’s supervision.
Lumbar Extension on SuperSlow Systems Pulldown (as pre-exhaust for)
MedX Leg Press (with end-stop technique and one rest pause rep after failure)
Med X Chest Press (with end-stop squeeze technique using a yoga block between the handles)
Nautilus Pullover with SS retrofits (the cam on this machine allows for a good squeeze technique without a hard end-stop)
MedX Row with SS fall-off cam
Elapsed time for this workout was 12 minutes 52 seconds. Experiencing these two workouts really drove home how important good equipment, proper environment and professional supervision can be. Of these three elements, supervision reigns supreme. Even when I am in UE unsupervised, it cannot hold a candle to a properly supervised workout. If you are able to get in a workout in one of the facilities on our directory even just every so often, it will serve as an invaluable benchmark.
