At least you can predict tornados, we just get earthquakes out of the blue lol
EVERYTHING you put in your body matters IF you want to reach your maximum potential.

Everything turned out fine, no tornadoes touched down in the KC area last night, although there were a lot of swirling clouds and torrential downpours.

So, catching up...

Last week on Thursday I did a high-rep minor workout of some accessory stuff that I had been missing the past few weeks.  Then took off Fri-Sun for the long holiday weekend.

Thursday July 2 - Misc.

Barbell Pullovers:
70 lb x 15 - 3 sets
80 lb x 12 - 2 sets

FreeMotion Machine Flys:
90 lb x 15 - 3 sets
100 lb x 12 - 2 sets

Dumbbell Shrugs:
60's x 15
65's x 15
70's x 15
75's x 15
80's x 10


Then last night's interrupted workout...

Monday July 6 - Deadlifts

Deadlifts:
135 x 10
205 x 5
255 x 5
275 x 5
* 40 minute rest period during the tornado warning *
275 x 5
295 x 5
305 x 1
325 - Fail
325 x 1
By then I was 30 minutes later than usual getting home, so I left.

Now it feels like I pulled something in the groin area. Pain runs from behind my junk down the inner/back upper leg area, almost down to the knee.  Only hurts when I walk or move, not when sitting still.

PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15
Squat - ugh
Leg Press 670x2 - 12/10/15

Yup, something is always hurting, but we carry on and work through it somehow.  I've been thinking of laying off for 2 weeks, maybe just doing yoga and abs (which I never do), to let the elbow and the pulled whatever-it-is in my leg heal.  I probably won't do it, but I'm thinking about it. ;)

Shoulders last night.  I'm still on a high rep kick for now.  I was going for 5 sets of 11 reps (with 95lb) this time on OHP.  I did it seated last week, but couldn't quite get there standing.

Tuesday July 7 - Shoulders

Military OHP:
45 x 20
95 x 11
95 x 11
95 x 11
95 x 10 - fail on 11
95 x 7 - worn out

Reverse Flys, lying on 45 degree bench:
15's x 12 - 5 sets

Front Raises with BB Plate:
45 x 10
45 x 10
35 x 12
35 x 12
35 x 10


PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15
Squat - ugh
Leg Press 670x2 - 12/10/15

Should have done legs yesterday or today, but I skipped it due to my pulled/strained groin/hamstring, or whatever's going on.  It's getting better, but not 100% yet.

I'm kinda at a loss about what to do while working around pain, pulls, strains, whatever.  Right now I can do chest, shoulders, and calves without pain.  I guess I could to abs too.  Maybe I should do abs for once.

Yesterday I did a light workout, trying some leg stuff and then moving on to shoulders.

Sunday July 12 - Misc stuff

Leg Press, super light:
180 lb x 10 - 3 sets

Calf Presses:
180 lb x 12 - 3 sets

Lying Leg Curls:
50 lb - nope.  3 reps and I had to stop.

Seated Calf Raises:
125 lb x 12 - 3 sets

moving on to shoulders:

Dumbbell Arnold Presses:
25's x 10
30's x 10
35's x 10 - 3 sets

Reverse Flys, lying on 45-degree bench:
17.5's x 10 - 3 sets

Lateral Raises on Machine:
90 x 10 - 3 sets

Then I did hammer twists with with a 5 lb bar, which is a forearm and tendinitis rehab exercise.
3 sets of 12 w/each arm. 
PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17

I feel like I can't do anything right now, well except abs.  :o I was gonna do legs today but after helping my son all day yesterday my knee is bothering me again.

Hope you get everything straightened out ASAP.

I took a week off at the end of June, and now I had to take another week off last week!  I hate that.  In my head I'm getting flabby and losing dem gainzzz. 

We moved to a new office last week, and I was the project manager for the move, so there were some long hours at the office and no training time.  I did jump in and help move furniture whenever I could.

Sunday July 19 - meh

Made it to the gym for the first time in a week.  Felt un-energetic so I mostly did stretching, foam rolling and walking around the indoor track.  Then I felt up to a few deadlifts.

Deadlifts:
135 x 10
135 x 10
205 x 5
255 x 5
275 x 1
295 x 1
305 x 1

That's all!  Back at it later today with a chest workout.

PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15

I have issues with my elbows when I do 2 handed overhead DB extensions. For some reason they've really been bothering my elbows.

What kind of pulling moves bother your elbows?

I have issues with my elbows when I do 2 handed overhead DB extensions. For some reason they've really been bothering my elbows.

What kind of pulling moves bother your elbows?

Lots of people say that triceps extensions, skullcrushers, etc. exacerbates their elbow tendinitis (tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, whatever).  For others it's biceps work and pulling movements that irritate it.  For me it's always been biceps/pulling.  Any sort of curl, pulling, or rowing type movement.  I have golfer's (inner) elbow on my right, and tennis (outer) elbow on my left.  Other than 5 or 6 gym days when I felt good enough to do light curls, I haven't done curls since October 2012. 

It started over 3 years ago when I  was doing lots of pullups, and had started adding extra weight to my pullups.  I quit doing any pulling for about 8 months and used certain exercises and stretches and ice, and it got better.  Then I joined my current gym and found I could do certain exercises with a close grip such as lat pulldowns and face pulls, even some pullups, and I could use the Hammer Strength "Iso Lateral" back machines without pain.  I've been doing that for over 2 years now, but in the past 8 weeks or so, even those exercises started to hurt.  Now the pain is a constant presence, even a minor throbbing when I'm not doing anything at all.   I've been icing once a day, but I'm going to start several times a day.  And I've started doing certain rehab exercises that seemed to help before.  My gym has a new sports massage therapist who supposedly specializes in such things, so I'm going to schedule an appointment.

Wow that sounds rough. Sorry to hear. Hope the specialist is able to help you get rid of this.

For some reason I've been having pain in my right elbow, directly at the back of the arm, like almost at the elbow joint.  :o

I've felt that twinge on the back of the elbow during skull crushers, so I don't do those.  Any other triceps exercises seem to be okay, but I don't do them.  My tris get trashed on chest day anyway, because I do bench presses with a closer grip than I should.   :o

Tuesday July 21 - Legs

Leg Press:
180 x 10 - 2 sets
270 x 10
360 x 10
450 x 8
540 x 5
590 x 4

Calf Presses on Leg Press:
180 x 12 - 2 sets
270 x 12
360 x 12
450 x 10

Seated Calf Raises:
(plate loaded)
125 x 12 - 5 sets

All three leg curl machines were in use and I didn't want to wait in line, so I left.  I probably should start doing RDL's or SLDL's for hams.
