Tuesday July 12 - Cardio

Just cardio. Blah. 20 minutes elliptical on pretty high resistance.  10 minutes up/down stairs.

Maybe throw in a little elbow rehab on the off days? That's my plan for today.

Thanks guys.  Bando, yep I sometimes do elbow rehab on those days.  I was just in a foul mood Tuesday and wanted to get home.

Last night was super quick.  I was running about 30 minutes behind my usual schedule but I wanted to get in some deads...

Wednesday July 13 - Workout B

Deadlifts:
135 lb x 10
225 lb x 5
275 lb x 5
295 lb x 5
315 lb x 3
275 lb x 5

Seated OHP this time instead standing:
bar x 15
95 lb x 10
100 lb x 10
105 lb x 10
110 lb x 10
115 lb x 5
Just couldn't push out 10 @115

That is all.  40 minutes.  The deads were super fast, short rests.  Then I was plum wore out and took longer on the OHP.


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

Still a good workout even in a short time. One day I'll start doing deads again.  :S

I was psyched all morning to go for a 350 PR on deadlifts, but things just weren't clicking.  Felt exhausted on the OHP.


That may be the last workout I get for the next two weeks.  Two 24/7 remodeling projects at work, all-company meetings for 2 days, two Royals baseball games, and a Dolly Parton concert have me all booked up until the 30th.  I may be able to squeeze in a session on Saturday the 23rd.

Ugh.  Fun times continue at work, as my boss was fired in the middle of one of our big projects the week before last.  Now I get to pick up his work by flying to CT this week to plan out some more restaurant remodels.  I might make it to the gym tonight, but then probably not until Friday.

Going back to Sunday 7/24:  I did a fun upper body pump workout.  Dumbbell work for the shoulders and biceps.  Cable work on biceps and triceps.  Machine work on the chest and lats.

Then Saturday 7/30:  I got to the gym and realized how exhausted I was from lack of sleep and rest.  I did some pull ups (36 total with no elbow pain!), lying leg curls, and seated OHP.  I just couldn't do any more, even though I had all afternoon to kill.  So I went to the pool and napped under mostly cloudy skies, but did get a little sun.

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

Monday August 1 - Deadlifts for the first time in 15 days

Got to the gym earlier than usual, it was pretty empty, and got a primo spot for deadlifts -- unusual for a Monday. 

Deadlifts:
135 lb x 10
205 lb x 5
255 lb x 5
275 lb x 5
285 lb x 5
275 lb x 5
255 lb x 5
205 lb x 5

By now it was 5:15.  I looked around and literally every single free weight station and all of the Hammer Strength machines that I like were occupied, and the dumbbell racks were overcrowded.  So I did 20 minutes of speed walking and 10 flights of stairs.  20 flights total today counting what I did at work.

I can totally relate to the overcrowded gym. I can't wait till all of the students go back to school.

Thanks Eric.  Yep those two sessions felt pretty good, although Friday's workout "A" was lighter than what I had worked up to.

Last night on the other hand, was a disaster.  During deadlifts I tweaked my lower back -- again.  Usually it happens when I'm tired and near the end of my deadlifts, but this time it was near the beginning of my dl session.  It's just one of those small things that will go away within 24 to 48 hours, but it's pretty sore this morning.

Monday Aug 8 - blah

Deadlifts:
135 lb x 10
205 lb x 5
255 lb x 5
275 lb x 5
The lower back twinge hit me on rep 4, but I pushed it one more.  Bad idea.  Time to move on.

Seated Rows:
100 lb x 10 -- 5 sets

Then 20 minutes of walking, stretching, rolling, stairs, etc.
PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15
Squat - ugh
Leg Press 670x2 - 12/10/15

I have been leary to start doing deads again since I tweaked my back last year. Once I start 531 again though I'll be forced to.

Hope your back heals up quickly.
