Still not finding much time for the gym, but getting in some weekend sessions.  Light weights, just enough to remind my body that I can still do this...

Sunday Dec 4:
Low & slow squats:  4 sets at 155 lb x 5

Hammer Strength Chest Press:  5 sets, various light weights, 10 reps each
I have used the HS incline and decline numerous times, but I think this is actually the first time I used the regular chest press.  Damn, it really targets those pecs. Really big MTM feels.

HS Iso Lateral High Row:  5 sets, 180x10

Pec Deck:  4 sets, various weights, 10-15 reps


Saturday Dec 10:

Bench Press:  8 sets from 135x10 up to 195x5

Dumbbell Lateral Raises:  4 sets, 12.5's x 15 up to 20's x 12.  Then reverse the sequence, 4 more sets.  Bad ass delt burn.

Pec Dec:   6 sets, various weights, 10-15 reps


Sunday Dec 11:

Deadlifts:  9 sets, 185x5 up to 273x3, including some additional singles at 275.

Standing OHP:  5 sets, 95x5

Face Pulls:  5 sets, 70x15 up to 90x11

HS Iso Lateral High Row:  5 sets, 180x10


Probably won't get in another session until Sunday 12/18.

Thanks guys.  It is hard to make time for the gym these days since I'd rather spend as much time as possible taking care of my husband while he's fighting this cancer.  But sometimes I need a break from it all, so the gym is a good escape.  He just had the second cycle of chemo yesterday, and thanks to 3 days of prednisone he's all hopped up and energetic at the moment, putting up the outdoor Christmas lights with the help of a friend while I'm at work today.  Tomorrow he'll probably crash and spend the next 3 to 5 days in a state of exhaustion.  The oncologist visit yesterday was uplifting when she expressed encouragement at his reaction to the chemo so far, and confirmed that he would be a candidate for Opdivo immunotherapy after the 4 chemo cycles.

Excellent.

Hey Shawn and Bando, thanks for the comments.

Just popping in to record my one workout in the past week, a low weight/high volume session.  I was there on a Friday afternoon around 2:00 and had pretty much free reign of the place...

Friday Dec 16 - Chest and Stuff

3-way SuperSet on Hammer Strength Presses which are located in line next to each other:
Chest Press / Incline Chest Press / Decline Chest Press:  5 rounds, 10 reps on each, 90lb to 160lb.  Whew, I went fast.  'bout wore me out.

SuperSet:
Dumbbell Lateral Raises / Dumbbell Curls:  5 rounds, 10 reps each, 15's to 25's (only got 8 on the last set of raises)

Final burn:
Curls with EZ bar:  40lb, 10 reps, 3 sets.

Yeah it was light, but it was fast and a lot of reps.  With a few speed walking laps on the indoor track, that was a quick 45 minutes.

Husband had chemo that Friday morning, and then all hyped up on Prednisone he was out shoveling the driveway in 10 degree weather on Saturday evening.  Not that the 2 inches really needed shoveling, but he was just burning off energy.  Now he's on the post-chemo, post-prednisone crash for a few days, but tolerating the chemo very well.  Not even a bit of hair loss so far.

Glad to hear the good news Toby. Here's to continuing improvements.

Glad you can still make it into the gym on occasion. Looks like you got a hell of a pump after that session. Keep it up!

Jan 2:
Time to take off some holiday weight and start running again:  20 laps indoor track=2 miles.  26 minutes with a lot of walking and slow jogging included.  My legs were way sore from squats and deads.  Then 15 minutes of stretching and foam rolling.

175.9 lbs on Sunday morning is my highest weight ever, by a lot.  Of course there was some New Years Eve drinking and the last of the holiday sweets involved the night before.

173.4 this morning.  160 by May 1, here we go!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like you got quite a few pretty good sessions in over the holidays Toby. Covered all the bases as well. Nice work. Hopefully you can keep it up.

Thanks guys. I feel pretty good about the last several training sessions although the weights are mostly light (esp. on squats!).  Throughout November and most of December, I was reminded that hitting the gym only once or twice a week leads to a lot of DOMS!

I also wanted to post an update on the spousal unit: Other than low energy and a low appetite some days he feels pretty darn good, so I am starting to feel better about spending time on myself at the gym instead of going straight home from work every day.  Despite what his doctor called "aggressive" treatment, he has not been sick and he still has his hair.   The pain in his side that initiated his first doctor's visit leading to the cancer diagnosis is GONE!  His last scheduled chemo is this Friday; then in the next couple of weeks they'll do another set of scans to see how the cancer tumors are responding; then we'll determine the next course of treatment, either continue the chemo or switch to new immunotherapy treatment -- probably Opdivo, which has been advertised in TV commercials a lot lately.

That's some good news Toby!
Glad he's responding well to the treatment. I know when my wife had breast cancer a couple years ago I was on pins and needles until seeing how treatment went.

On that OHP I was surprised to get 5 at 115 considering how little & light I've been lifting lately.  But then I was really disappointed to not even get 1 at 125.
