Chest and traps

Dumbbell bench press 5, 5, 5, 5, 5
40s, 42.5s, 45s, 50s, 52.5s (4)

Pull-ups 5 x max reps to failure
10, 8, 7, 6, 7


15 x rack bench @ 120lb
30 x pull-ups (slight kipping)

Time = 6:55


10-1 dips with 8 push-ups after each round

Time = 19:24


Very slow times on the second and third routines today. Not sure why; perhaps it was a mistake to do an upper body routine straight after the Olympic lifting yesterday. I did feel a bit sore before I started, but I've felt that way before without any problems. 

I did the last routine on January 20, 2011 but with 10 push-ups, not 8 (by mistake!). Today's time was much slower even though I did fewer push-ups. It all started so well: the first round was completely unbroken, the first time I've ever done 10 consecutive dips. After that the dips were broken down into doubles and singles. I failed several times during the last four rounds of dips, and that cost me at least three minutes of recovery time.
