August of Arms 2017 Pre-Test Results
August of Arms 2017
I completed my August of Arms Pre-Test Results this past weekend. I thought I’d share them with you. The idea is to improve performance on all 4 of these events by the end of the month.
August of Arms Pre-Test #1 – Close Grip Bench for Reps
I went ahead and did this one over, so it was more accurate. I used 255 pounds this time and actually got more reps than when I shot the demo video a week prior.
August of Arms Pre-Test #2 – Max Alternated Dumbbell Curl
For the first time ever, I successfully curled my dumbbells that are marked 85’s but actually weigh over 91lbs apiece. They are a tough set to curl, and I’m stoked to start off the month of Arm Training with a big lifetime PR.
August of Arms Pre-Test #3 – Max Triceps Push Down
This is really the only lift from testing day that I was disappointed with. I figured I’d end up over 150, but failed on 140 3 different times.
August of Arms Pre-Test #4 – Wall Curl for Reps
For this one, you take half your bodyweight or 125lbs – whichever you prefer. I chose 133lbs, mainly because it’s easy to load.
Overall, I’m happy with my testing. I’m really looking forward to this month of training, no doubt about. Lots of good things gonna be happening!
