Notes: Start 3:51/4:44 Finish----Bush-Sixteen Stone----Crap. Back tweaked on me during squats.....I felt it early, but last set was NOT happening. I started feeling it during BP too....so I didn't do 205 today. I was driving around town quite a bit today....may be part of the problem. I tell you....I felt better rested with the AXBX I was doing. Always seems like something isn't rested enough when I do a back to back workout. We'll see how the back is on Wed. with DL's.....

:sad:

Wow where does the time go?! Seems like yesterday my back gave out on me (it was much worse the next morning....L4 again I guess).....and 5 weeks later here I am....back moving weight, sweating, grunting, and loud music. I can't tell you how much I missed working out. To the point of me feeling like $h1t....lethargic almost....even almost depressed...wtf? I turned back into a carb whore again, drinking too much, and even picked up cigs again for a week.....after 5 years quit....:roll: Even bank girl is upset.....haha.

Anyhow.....my back feels great, and now that I am working again, there shouldn't be any problem. Funny how not working makes my back hurt..lol.

Notes: Start 4:25/5:02 Finish----Chevelle-SciFi Crimes----Some things felt great, some didn't. I want to say it won't take long to get back to where I was, but with me going out of town later this week and dealing with hotel life, I'm not sure. I will be taking dumbells with me, so I will be able to make some progress. With any luck I can find a gym to DL and squat in....

:grin:

Notes: Start 5:21/6:15 Finish----More Chevelle....I'm gonna wear that CD out in no time....lol----Had an "emergency" tile job to do this weekend that required me to spend the night on a crappy sofa last night. And the island has no restaraunts, and one gas station that sells anything to eat. I got there too late last night for hot dogs or hamburgers, so I grabbed a six pack, vienna sausages, and a can of ravioli.....lol. Felt like I was 18 and fresh out of the parents house....ahahaha. Anyhow, with $h1t for diet and little to no sleep, I wasn't sure I would have a decent workout today. On the way home I stopped at Charbucks and grabbed a redeye....did the trick! Todays workout felt great!

Oh, and six beers and a large can of vienna sausages.....not good the next morning! :lol:

Notes: Start 4:36/5:26 Finish----yup, Chevelle----I am opting for lower weight and higher reps on RDL....babying my back I guess. Eight reps is a lot of work......I am spent at the end....sheesh. I was bloated and felt like spewing a couple times.....I ate way too big of a lunch two hours before workout and then a shake 45 mins before.....and a redeye right before....lol. Way too much in my stomach. And now I am typing this after a post workout out shake.....good god almighty I wanna hurl! <belch>

I can tell my energy levels during the day have increased dramatically since I have resumed training......woot! Now to get a handle on this crap diet I have going...... :roll:

:razz:

Notes: Start 4:15/5:15 Finish----Alice in Chains-Dirt----No caffeine before workout....hard to focus. BOR's were sloppy....but got all 8 on last set. Went up on pulldowns and shrugs.....changing things up a bit on curls. I may try a different handle for pulldowns next pull day....the double handle with palms facing each other.

Decent workout....made a little progress and I feel good.

Sushi anyone?
:wink:

Notes: Start 4:17/5:13 Finish----Metallica-Death Magnetic----Feels good to move up in weight on a few things. Pulldowns were done with the double rowing handle (?)....I can pull more weight with it than the straight bar, but I don't like how limited my ROM is. The handles hang about 4 or 5 inches lower than the straight bar, and I can't extend my arms up all the way.....??? And I am considering seated rows for a while and ditching the BOR's.

I have also started creatine....it is cheap enough and what the hell. We'll see what happens.

Now for 4 days off......too much food temptation....and lots of time with bank girl. I wonder if I'll have the energy to workout....lol!

Notes: Start 6:11/6:55 Finish----Alice in Chains-new one----Work was hard on my back today....not from heavy lifting, but from being bent over in funny positions all day doing tedious stuff. So I kept the RDL's light. I don't want another back injury. I'll switch back to the straight bar for pulldowns....double handle just doesn't feel right with the ROM being shortened. Finally went up on BOR's.....lmao. Didn't get a longer DB...just used 25 lb plates.....upper range is shortened by a few inches. Oh...skipped shrugs too....cuz I can.

:smile:

Notes: Start 3:50/4:45 Finish-----Chevelle----Five days off....amazing how I felt today....awesome! What a pump! Going up on most everything next workout. After seeing Ericks videos, I am very interested in starting Tbar rows.....to substitute BOR's. Not sure of what handle to use though....I have a double handle for my cable machine that will work.....looks similar to what Erick was using. I see some straight bars online too.....thoughts?

:wink:
