Had a great time in The Bahamas last week, though only 2 1/2 days of fun activity time.  I went to the gym one morning and just sorta farted around, didn't do much of a workout.

Yesterday's workout was the first in 10 days, and I stayed pretty light...

Deadlifts:
135 lb x 10
205 lb x 5
225 lb x 5
255 lb x 5
255 lb x 5
205 lb x 5

Bench Press:
bar x 25
135 lb x 10
185 lb x 5 -- 5 sets
135 lb x 10

Face Pulls:
70 x 15
80 x 15
90 x 15
100 x 12
110 x 10

Then some walking, stretching, and yoga-ish stuff.  Later after it stopped raining, a 2 mile dog walk.
PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15
Squat - ugh
Leg Press 670x2 - 12/10/15

Thanks Eric.  HOPEFULLY the next two weeks will be somewhat normal with 5-days-a-week workouts, before I have to travel again.

Last night I didn't feel like doing squats.  Since the racks were taken anyway, I did a Hammer Strength plate-loaded machine workout.  A warm up then 5x5 on each one, very fast cardio weight training...

Monday Sept 26 - Misc chest/back

HS Incline Chest Press:
90 lb x 10
140, 160, 170, 180, 190 x 5

HS Iso Lateral High Row:
90 lb x 20
180, 200, 220, 230, 240 x 5

HS Decline Chest Press:
90 lb x 15
180, 200, 220, 230, 240 x 5

HS Iso Lateral Low Row:
90 lb x 15
140, 160, 170, 180, 190 x 5

FreeMotion Machine Flyes
100 x 15
120, 130, 140, 150, 160 x 5

Whew!  25 sets (+ warmups), 50 minutes, and I was sweating.  Fun workout.

Do you always travel so much for work?

Oh man, I hate traveling for work but I knew that this late summer & fall would involve a lot.  Probably will continue through mid-Nov.  It's an off-and-on thing in my job.

Last night's workout was kinda crappy.  Running late, low energy, cranky mood, did not have my pre-workout coffee...  Whine, whine, whine.  But I wanted to get some squats and OHP over and done with, even though they were light weight.

Tuesday Sept 27 - Workout A

Squats:
bar x 10 -- twice
135 lb  x 10
185 lb x 5
185 lb x 5
185 lb x 5
135 lb x 10

Military OHP:
bar x 10
95 lb x 5
100 lb x 5
105 lb x 5
110 lb x 5
110 lb x 5

That's all, folks!  I fast-walked a few indoor laps before taking off.
PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15

Not a bad shoulder workout Toby.

I miss the gyms with the half DB's, especially for shoulder work. It'd be nice to have those as sometimes 25's too light, 30 is too heavy but 27.5 would work.

Yep, but unfortunately my gym only has them in 2.5lb increments up to 25, so no 27.5's!  But the 22.5's and 17.5's are very nice for lighter weight shoulder work, like last night.

Agree. A good shoulder day. I've never seen 1/2 lb dumbbells.

Wow, our last gym had the 2.5lb increments up 40lbs but I've been in gyms travelling for work where they had the 2.5 increments up to 75lbs.

Solid back work, big volume on the deads and HS rows. One thing I miss having my homegym is training back with HS equipment.
Bahamas sounds sweet!

Thanks Shawn,  I gotta tell ya, my upper back is feeling the DOMS today.  I sat in the hot tub last night with the upper back jets on me for a good 30 minutes.

I really like the HS machines.  I don't use them very often, except for the high row which I do use a lot.  I can use it without elbow pain, whereas pull ups or pull downs do hurt my elbows.  The incline press makes me feel weak, the decline press makes me feel strong, and the low row makes me feel weak as a kitten.

Looks like some solid sessions Toby.  8)
