So true Tim, so true.

Storm, I haven't been able to do Deadlifts for a time. My goal was 400 lbs with lifting 365 lbs back on August 23, 2006. I've been given the go ahead to start working my legs more so I will again work towards lifting the 400 lbs. I will go slow of course but I see it in my near future.

Oh ok that's a drag. 400 for one or several? My max right now is about 345-350 so I'm getting there.

That would be for a 1 rep max with hopes that that would be the actual weight that I would do for my sets, but one step at at time.

Heh good luck on that. I someday want to hit 500-550 but we'll see.

Haven't posted anything for a week as have been sick. The last Wednesday I worked out I was feeling it and by the next days I was hit hard. I've pretty much stayed home trying to recover and regret not working out but I've been in no shape to do so. I had been going to work but had to come home yesterday afternoon. Stayed home today and hopefully the extra rest will get me over this hump so I can get back at it.

Hey sorry about the illness, I hope you can get over it soon. I know I go insane when I can't train.

Monday, April 29, 2007 - Week 438, Day 1142

Seated Rear Lat Pulldowns = 190 lbs = 1x10
Seated Rear Lat Pulldowns = 195 lbs = 1x7, 1x6
Barbell Bent-Over Rows = 210 lbs = 1x8, 1x7, 1x6 STOP
Closed Grip Lat Pulldowns = 170 lbs = 1x9, 2x7
Dumbbell Trap Crunches = 54 lbs each = 3x10

Leg Extensions = 105 lbs per leg = 3x10

Still have running nose, plugged sinuses and odd times my ears are plugged. Thinking allergies but I was tested years ago and they found nothing, perhaps time to go again. None the less I decided to work out.

Rear Lats I moved up some weight. Bent-Over-Rows I had to stop on the third set as when I hit the 6th rep my back got a twinge and it is still hurting now. Closed-Grip I moved up some reps and Trap Crunches I moved up some weight. Leg Extensions about the same as last.

Triceps tonight but will see what I can do with my lower back.

Monday, April 30 2007 - Week 438, day 1143

Standing Closed-Grip Barbell Tricep Curls = 140 lbs = 3x8
Lying Supine 2-Arm Dumbbell Tricep Curls = 44 lbs per arm = 1x9, 2x10
Weighted Dips = 195 lbs = 2x9, 1x8
Kick Backs = 89 lbs per arm = 3x8

Leg Extensions = 110 lbs per leg = 3x10

Didn't really want to work out but did so and am glad. Love triceps and all went well. Upped a few on weight and upped some reps. Leg coming along slowly but still coming along. If I can get to 150 lbs on my left leg then I will consider that some progress. If and when I can get to 200 lbs I will be very happy and back on track and will certainly hit the Deadlifts again.

Wednesday, May 2, 2007 - Week 438, Day 1144

Ez-Curl Barbell Preacher Curls = 120 lbs = 1x8, 1x7, 1x4
Incline Inner Dumbbell Curls = 69 lbs per arm = 1x8, 1x9, 1x10
Seated Concentrated Dumbbell Curls = 64 lbs per arm = 1x8

Leg Extensions = 115 lbs per leg = 3x10

A weird night for lifting. My first Preacher Curl lift my left arm/shoulder was feeling weak. I was still a little stiff from Sunday's back workout and Monday's tricep workout but I was not expecting how I performed which I felt poorly. I upped the Preacher Curls by 5 lbs and on the 3rd set I had nothing for strength and getting the 4 reps was all I could do. My shoulder started hurting and I knew I shouldn't push it ... but I did. I went to the next lift and also raised those by 5 lbs per arm and I got them done but I don't think I did myself any favors by continuing. By the time I got to the Isolated Curls all I could muster was the one set with my left side and that is when I called it quits. Shoulder was bugging me for hours afterwards but subsided enough to go out from 9:00 to 11:00 motorbike riding with my Instructor who stopped by after class.

Leg is still coming slow but I upped it by 5 lbs. Like I noted earlier I started with some light lifts first to warm up the leg and then tackled the heavier weight; this makes an incredible difference. 115 lbs to me per leg does not sound like much but putting this into perspective, there are a lot of people that cannot do this on good legs so that at least makes me feel good. I will take this one day at a time and just keep working it. Back to the surgeon on the 16th of May and see where we go from here.

Monday, May 8, 2007 - Week 439, Day 1145

Barbell Bench Press = 247 lbs = 2x7, 1x6
Dumbbell Bent-Arm Laterals = 94 lbs per arm = 2x7, 1x6
Dumbbell Incline Laterals = 89 lbs per arm = STOP
Barbell Decline Bench Press = 222 lbs = 2x7, 1x6

I upped each exercise by 5 lbs and the Bench Press felt good. Also the Laterals felt good lifting 94 lbs per arm and I think I can up these more ... if only I had a spotter. The third exercise I stopped because my shoulders were not feeling very good and the incline on that lift would put more stress on my shoulders and then I'd probably have to take a break which I don't need. Because I didn't do the third exercise, instead of 5 lbs I added another 5 for a total of 10 lbs as I figured I would not be as tired as I normally would with the third exercise. Good call as this was easy as well.

Did not do any leg extensions as now I feel I am at a point that I will add legs into my regular workout. This means on leg days I will again work on my Deadlifts and see where I am at. Over all a good workout day though my shoulders seem to be giving me some problems as of lately which I will need to heed for future workouts.
