Thanks man.  Sometimes I feel like I need to take a good month off to let the body heal, but dang, I just don't want to do that.

I thought I had made it through those deadlifts with good form and no problems, but then I woke up this morning with a painful lower back -- the kind of pain I usually get when I break from good form on DLs.  It was feeling better by noon, and then I let loose with a big sneeze and now the lower back is in pain again!  Oh the joys of aging, when a sneeze can throw your back out.  I keep trying to fight it though.

Great work in here Toby and congrats on those PR's. I know all to well about throwing out your back just from sneezing. My lower back hurts every morning when I get up.

I think it may be time to get rid of the water bed. :(

Thanks Eric.  Do you still have one of those wavy water beds, like from the 70's?  Had one for a few years in the early 90's, and it did make for some good sleeping, among other things.  Then they came out with waveless -- what fun is that?

Missed the gym Sat - Tues, but finally made it in last night.  Did not feel energetic or strong, so it was a lightweight workout.

Wednesday Sept. 2 - Chest

Bench Press:
bar x 30 - 2 sets
135 x 15
155 x 10
185 x 8
185 x 5

Hammer Strength Machine Decline Press:
90 x 15
140 x 15
140 x 15
140 x 15
140 x 15

FreeMotion Machine Flys:
100 x 10 - 5 sets

Hammer Strength Incline Press:
90 x 10 - 3 sets

Good enough for a big pump and DOMS today. :)

Actually I have pretty much a waveless one. I love it, especially the heat part. I think it might just be low on water. I'm gonna try to fill it before getting rid of it.

That looks like a mighty fine workout to me, especially for not feeling energetic.

Very quick, light deadlift session last night.  Then I got a phone call with earth shattering news from work -- not particularly good or bad news, just big news -- and had to make some other phone calls after that, so I stopped the workout at that point.

Thursday Sept. 3 - Deadlifts

135 x 10
205 x 5
225 x 5
225 x 8
225 x 8
225 x 8

THAT'S ALL.

Solid set of OHP. Why 11 though? Seems like such an odd number of reps.......

Oh yes, I did the Bando stretches after each set.  I'm a stickler for rules.  This is the first time I've done the curls in a few months.  I'm getting fed up with my right elbow, and throwing everything in the book at it now to get it better.  My left elbow is pain free after several weeks of no rowing/pulling/curling exercises, but the right is more stubborn.
