Well, you got it back and that's what counts.
A few more weeks and you'll be pulling the 325 again too.

Agreed. I know I couldn't pull 315 anymore. You'll be blowing past that in no time.

50 minutes, maybe 55 with the stairs.  25 sets, very little rest between sets, about 1 minute.   Cardio weight training!

Nice. My workouts are taking me longer now but that's due to needing extra rest between sets, especially with squats.  :-[

Wow, had a whirlwind weekend of family get-togethers and birthdays.  Friday: Drove 3 1/2 hours to my sister's home, big lunch with sis and aunt who was visiting from out of town, birthday dinner (mine) with an old high school friend, then drinking until late.  Saturday: Niece's birthday lunch, then a big family party out in the country for my (a different) aunt's 80th.  Then a huge family dinner with some 20 people and 6 dogs in my sister's small house.  Pie.  Cake.  More drinking.  Drove back home on Sunday.  It was fabulous.  Did not dare to step on the scale this morning.

Catching up on last week's last workout:

Thursday May 5 - Legs

15 minutes on elliptical, resistance level 8/15.

Squats:
135 lb x 5
135 lb x 5
155 lb x 5
155 lb x 5
135 lb x 5

Seated Leg Curls:
66 lb x 15
77 lb x 10
77 lb x 10
88 lb x 8
88 lb x 8

15 more minutes on elliptical, resistance level 5/15.

5 flights of stairs.

My re-introduction to squats is going to be slow and deliberate.  So far so good... no knee pain, no back issues, no balance problems with only 155.   Planning to add 10 lbs per week, then get comfortable at 225 for a few weeks before going up from there.

Sounds like you had a great weekend. I wouldn't worry too much about one weekend of splurging.

My squat progress is slowly moving up also. I feel your pain.

Well it's not like I lift very heavy or anything, but I was thinking tonight's DL's would be light and higher reps -- like super light, 205-225-ish.  With this full body program that I ran before, it worked pretty well  to alternate heavy and light A/B rotations.  Who knows, once I get there I may feel completely different and bail to the cardio side of the gym.

Okay, that makes more sense. I was thinking heavy and then heavy, not heavy then light.

Tuesday May 17 - Deads & OHP
Quick, light day.  Running behind, so it was a short workout...

Deadlifts:
135 lb x 10
205 lb x 5
225 lb x 5
235 lb x 10
235 lb x 8
235 lb x 5
I was going for a high rep session,with 2 to 2.5 minute rests due to running behind schedule.  Thought 3 sets of 10 @ 235 would be do-able, but when I felt my form breaking, I stopped.

Military OHP:
bar x 10
bar x 10
95 lb x 5
95 lb x 5
95 lb x 5
95 lb x 5
95 lb x 5

Then 5 minutes of handstand practice.  I balanced without touching the wall for about 5 seconds two times.  Getting better. 

That's all.  35 minutes.
