Solid session dude!  :thumbsup:

Sounds like it's due to the starting position. On the regular leg press yesterday I started down in the bottom position ( Hey, I have short legs ), and I had to use my hands to push up at the start of the heavier sets.


 I do agree that that starting position may be part of it, but also angle will play a factor. Hell, look at bench press! Decline it, incline it, flat... Your going to get different numbers.

 Short legs? don't you mean hobbit legs?  :P


Yea, pretty much.

It's ok dude, I'm 5'7 as well (with a longer torso no less) I feel your pain. Nothing worse than trying to find 30 length pants!!!  :flame: :flame:

In on the 30" inseam club.  Good work Toby.  Don't worry' 'bout the weight on leg press.  I've yet to have anyone how much I do on them. ;)

Lemme know when you guys find some 29" inseam pants. I'll go buy them.  :S

I need to start trying on jeans too. I bought one pair that said 29" length and they are all bunched up at the bottom. :doh:

Sorry about derailing your journal Toby. :)

 Sears, old man section...look for the pants made by Arnold Palmer (what does he not make nowadays?!). There were 29 inseam which I was shocked to see. Though I got a chuckle when I seen 40-42 waist and 30 inseam....heh heh.


 Yeah Toby, sorry for the hijack!

Ah, dress pants.... I thought you meant Arnold Palmer made old man jeans. I don't wear dress pants, only jeans. I used to dress up for work and all my clothes ended up beat up. Not anymore.

As for your ass, I'll take your word on that.

Welp! I think I just threw up a little in my mouth, thanks for that!.

 The pants, they are more of a cargo style, not quite but almost....super comfy!

Haha, I don't know if I ever told anyone this, but I have bought pants at Sears.  They were casual pant for work, sort of-almost cargo style, but no cargo pockets.  They were some of my favorites until they just wore out.  And they weren't Arnold Palmer pants for heaven's sake.

Finding 31" inseam isn't exactly easy either, but that's exactly what I need.  I usually can find 30x30's but they are a hair too short, and 30x32's are a smidge too long.  I usually end up buying 32's.

Catching up...

Friday Feb. 13 - Chest

Bench Press:
warm up, 45lb x 25 x 2 sets, 135lb x 12
185 lb x 10
205 lb x 5
210 lb x 5
215 lb x 3
in a hurry, so I stopped there and moved on...

Flat Barbell Pullover
(with pre-loaded barbells)
60 lb x 15
70 lb x 12
80 lb x 12
80 lb x 10
80 lb x 10

Hammer Strength Incline Chest Press:
(plate weight)
90 lb x 10
110 lb x 10
130 lb x 10

Hammer Strength Decline Chest Press:
(plate weight)
130 lb x 10
150 lb x 10
160 lb x 10


Sunday Feb. 15 - Back

Deadlifts:
warm up, 135 lb x 10 x 2 sets
205 lb x 5
255 lb x 5
275 lb x 5
305 lb x 4
Something was off with the deadlifts today; my form was off or something, and my lower back was feeling it.  I know better than to continue when things aren't right, so I cut it short and moved one.

Seated Rows:
100 x 10
110 x 10
120 x 8
130 x 6
130 x 5

Reverse Flys, FreeMotion Machine:

90 x 5

Dumbbell Shrugs:
(very slow, slight rolling motion front-to-back)
60's x 15 x 3 sets

Nice workouts Toby!, Smart move on the DL's...better safe than sorry.

Yeah, 31 inseam is worse to try and find.....there is nothing wrong with Arnold Palmer pants....nothing!!!

Thanks Eric, I feel much much better now.  The last two workouts I didn't use the inhaler before the workout, and I still breathed easy all evening afterwards.  The palpitations are calming down too... still there, but not as noticeable.  The stress and echo tests apparently showed no abnormalities, but the cardiologist wants me in for another follow-up appointment.
