Upper Body

I. Weighted Dips - was finally inovative enough to come up how to make a dips station
--a.10 x BW
--b.8 x +10 lbs.
--c.8 x +10 lbs.
--d.6 x +15 lbs.

II. Pull-ups/Chin-ups
--a.8 x BW (P)
--b.8 x BW (C)
--c.6 x BW (P)
--d.5 x BW (C)

III. Military Press
--a.8 x 85 lbs.
--b.7 x 95 lbs.
--c.7 x 95 lbs.

IV. Shrugs
--a.9 x 185 lbs.
--b.8 x 205 lbs.
--c.8 x 225 lbs.

Reflection: Finally bought more weight today - I now have about 280lbs. at my disposal. I made a dips station by putting two chairs together and stabilizing them with 75lbs on each chair. Dips took a lot out of me, and my whole upper body was pumped before even reaching pull-ups/chin-ups; once I get used to both(dips,pull&chin), I will be able to add more weight/reps to each exercise. My chest was twice as pumped after dips as it would have been after doing DB press. I am getting stronger and stronger in military press. Overall good workout.
