Having Myself a Field Day/'Feels' Day!

Today went by fast! Spend the majority of my day at school, did some homework, and cooked some dinner. Today was considered an 'exciting' day because I was off of work, did my homework, hit chest and shoulders, FINALLY got the call about my new work schedule next week, and spend some quality time with my babe.

My morning session today began around 8:30 AM. It was on the later end for me, considering I would probably be at work or cooking a mean breakfast this time on other days. I really wanted a good 'feel' day and since it was technically my second day on my routine, I just had to hit chest. My alternative focus was going to be arms, but I changed it to shoulders/traps in the middle of the workout. Weighed in around 171lbs this morning, felt good and lean!

Chest/Shoulders/Traps Complex
4 x 8-10 Bench Press
superset w/ 4 x 10-12 Lateral Side Raises

3 x 10-12 Dumbbell Incline Press
superset w/ 3 x 15 Shrugs

4 x 10 Hammer-strength Decline Press
superset w/ 4 x 8-10 Lateral Side Raises

3 x 12-15 Cable Flyes
supetset w/ 3 x 10 Shoulder Press

5 x 12 Cable Tricep Extension
supetset w/ 5 x 10 Dumbbell Hammercurls

(Didn't do much but one group set)

Felt the pumps for sure! If you ever want to look like an action figure, this complex will leave you STACKED. Felt dense throughout the workout, vascularity all over! I have been supersetting a lot my sets lately not only because I do not want to be at the gym forever, because I can feel the burn so much more. Pre-exhausting a muscle to immediately jump in to exhausting another will leave those muscles erected! I finished up around 40 minutes into the session, leaving with all of my potential 'gainz'.

After today's session, I noticed what I need to really improve on. Need to incorporate more delts and trap workouts. Need to do so to bring the upper body together. There are always room to improvement! We just need to recognize it and capitalize on it! Can't improve yourself if you don't start working on the trouble areas! Work with it, don't work around it! Rehab it!


  1. Nice work Dennis! Me and Ethan have been ripping out 5x5 sets on bench and then finishing with a drop set 12+ reps. Definitely seeing str gainzzz. Comfortably repping 100kg (2 plate) bench, 140 kg dead (3 plate) - getting 4 plate only once, 60 kg (1 plate) OHP and 140 kg (3 plate) squat. Were both are around 200 lbs. Bulkin in the Balkans!

  2. Good stuff! I am gonna start eating clean from this point on, it was a fun run eating whatever I really wanted, but winter is coming. I'mma do the complete opposite from most lifters and getting SHREDDED. Beach aesthetics? Nah BRAH, Winter aesthetics.

    1. Haha, I know what you mean! I wanted to cut before summer started but I just ate everything under the sun instead. It was a summer bulk. Now, I want to cut too but it's winter. Bah! I guess i'll just continue bulking. Who are you working out with anyhow?

  3. I workout by myself, only ask for spots on strength training days! I have been working out with a lot of different people but that's more me training them. Gonna start charging
