Hey thanks for the comments guys. 

Another hodge-podge workout of light shoulder and arm stuff last night...

Tuesday May 2 - Misc

45x20 / 17.5x20
95x10 / 20x15
95x10 / 22.5x12
95x8 / 22.5x12

Various very light weights, 10-15 reps, 3 rounds of superset.

Strutted out with swollen arms and veins popping.

Probably won't make it to the gym this evening.  Tomorrow we fly to Florida for a short vacation.  Husband is sensitive to sunlight due to his chemo, and I just had a couple of suspect skin spots frozen off and need to avoid too much sun, but we will have a good time sitting under the beach umbrellas!  It's going to be a pasty white summer for both of us.

Welcome to my world.  :P
Being red headed is all about sunscreen. As my wife says about me "he doesn't tan, he just turned darker shades of red".
I swear a full day in the sun, even with sunscreen, and I could give Rudolph a run for his money lighting the way for Santa  :o

Good lower Toby!

I spent the better part of 2 months just doing leg press since it took so damn long for my right knee to heal. I don't think I lost any strength (DL probably helped too) and got some definition (finally) on my outer quads from them.

Yep, I really like doing Leg Press, but hadn't done them for a while before Thursday.  I've been leg day skipper.  And a deadlift skipper lately too. :-[   Well here it is Monday, and I still have some DOMS from that Thursday leg day.

Got in one weekend session with a lot of sets/reps:

Saturday May 20 - Back

Hammer Strength High Row:
90x25
180x10
180x10
200x10
200x10
220x6
220x6
240x6
240x6
250x5
250x5
180x12

Hammer Strength Low Row:
90x12
90x12
110x10
110x10
130x8
130x8
150x6
150x6
160x5
160x5

SS - Cable Straight Arm Push Down / Face Pulls:
same weight and reps for each exercise...
70x15
75x14
80x13
85x12
90x10
80x10
70x12
70x12

Hmm.  Maybe some day if I get on an actual program my reps and set counts won't be all over the board.  But on the other hand I kinda like winging it based on how I feel and how much time I have.
PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15
Squat - ugh

Monday May 22 - Chest

Bench Press:

135x10
185x5
190x5
195x5

70x10

Hammer Strength Decline Chest Press:
160x10
180x10
180x10
210x6
210x6

I love doing pullovers on the decline!  I can feel the pecs quivering on each rep, and it provides an awesome pump in the pecs and arms.  I do a quick little CGBP between each pullover rep.  I was kinda pissed that I didn't feel strong on the BP.  I went in feeling like it was going to be a great BP day, but it was just blah.

Huge volume there Toby. Results city coming your way if you keep that up. You're winging it looks pretty decent. If it's working for you that's great. For me I need a proven program to gauge my results.

NICE!! :bigthumb: Toby's in the squat rack. Doesn't matter what's on the bar. You got in there and did it. Nice upper/lower combo.

Thanks for the support guys!  Once I get started on squats I always like doing them, but it's always like starting over from scratch and slowly working my way back up...  135, 155, 175, etc.

Some arms last night, before a 4 day break for the long holiday weekend.  Light weight, mostly 10-15 reps.

Thursday May 25 - arms & stuff

SS - Pull ups / Dips:
6 / 12
6 / 12
6 / 12
5 / 10
5 / 10

SS - BB Curls / BB OH Triceps Extensions
40 x 15 / 40 x 15
40 x 12 / 40 x 12
40 x 12 / 40 x 12
50 x 10 / 50 x 10
50 x 10 / 50 x 10

Lying Dumbbell Curls
(lying flat, arms wide)
15's x 15
15's x 15
17.5's x 12
17.5's x 12
20's x 10

Cable Triceps Pushdowns w/rope:
65 x 15
75 x 12
80 x 10
85 x 8
90 x 6

Quick Final Pump...
Cable OH Extensions:  60 x 15
DB Hammer Curls:  20 x 15


Oh how I fondly remember the days (5 years ago) when I could do 15+ pull ups per set, and 25-30 dips per set, and rep out some weighted sets of each.  Now my elbows make me stop at 6 pull ups, and shoulders hurt at 10-12 dips.  It's the only thing in the gym that my shoulders don't like.

I've had fun in the gym the last couple of weeks doing lighter weights and lotsa sets/reps.  Hmmm...
