Like I said, the consensus seems to be static stretch after, not before, because a stretched muscle is a weaker muscle.


Also, I'm not surprised 3 x 7 x 77.5 was easy. You just did 3 x 20 x 75! Next workout you might want to bump it up more than 2.5#. With 4 x 15# plates in the kitty, you can eventually get up to 135# before you'll need more weight again. :)

How are the lifts coming? It seems like after your break you were able to pick right up where you left off. That's a good sign, that maybe the break helped!

How is the wrist?

the wrist is good. i mean it's normal. no pain now whatsoever.

although i think i should really include bicep curls in my routine since in our company's cheer dance, they make me lift some women. i can lift them when using shoulder power but with bicep power, i am really having a hard time doing the lift

If you're sure you need them, throw a few sets at the end of one of your workouts - maybe 3 sets of 10 reps, or 3 sets of 8 reps, something like that.

Or you can switch your lat pulldowns to underhand grip, which will allow the biceps to take some of the work. The weight you can do would probably go up a little.

Well, I don't care what the concensus is, there is nothing wrong with working your arms directly. Go ahead and throw in some "curls for the girls" if you like. They just shouldn't be your top priority, unless you're a bodybuilder bringing them into proportion. Like Pete said, change to an underhand grip with lat pulls, then if you have planty of gas left at the end of the session, go for it.

Those 1 x 5 x 100# deadlifts, that's about a 5 x bodyweight deadlift for you, right? Or very close?

That's pretty nice.

Heartbreak affects everything, including exercise.

Everything, including heartbreak, affects exercise.

So, the answer to your question is yeah.

Sorry. It's never easy.

Like Andy said, yeah, it affects everything.

Is that why your weights seem to have stalled? You've been doing the same weights for a while...you were doing 3 x 10 x 80# squats for a while, now you're back to 3 x 7 and stayed there.

I find the best way to deal with emotional stress is to work out hard.

Kick ass! That's more than your bodyweight (I think) for 5 reps. Nice.

Nice! There's something special about the big round numbers--like 100!

If only one of you thinks it's a date, it's not a date.

I think you're setting yourself up for another heartbreak...
