First day back working out. I snuck a bike ride in as well as the arms. But bike was just pleasant. honest, arms days are the one thing that sucks. Legs days don't. Biking definitely doesn't. Swimming...well is starting to, but really nowhere near the suck of arms lift days.

Felt fine medically, maybe one place where I tasted a little blood, but just barely and no pain and just for a sec (mid workout). Think it's fine and jawbone is healing.


Date: 05JUN10
Week: NS24A1
Gym: Richmond Y

Strength: "Arms"
bench 135/135# (no pauses)
db curls 30/30#
tricep press 195/195#
seated rows 130/125#
pec flies: 110/110#
lat straight arm pulldowns: 95/95#
straight arm, v-shaped arm raises 12.5 (1)/12.5# dbs
bicycles 28/26
rot cuff, bent arm abduction (alt L/R sides) 30(1)/30#
Back Extensions, 17.5#
prone shoulder stabilization flies 5(1)/5#

* Strength is done with 2 sets of 10, alternating exercises (e.g. dip/curl/dip/curl).
* Hold for a "one count" each rep at point of max effort.
* (parens indicated extra reps)

Stretching (2 sets each, 30 sec count, alt L/R except calf/shin):
gastroc/soleus
hammie
quad
hips external rot
glut
hip flexor

Tissue work: back, calves

rehab (2 by 10)
calf raise singles BW
touchdowns
5# leg lifts

supplements: multi and gluc, biotin and gluc

Assessment:
* Workout: fine. Little weak on the lifts, actually. Would have been ready to move up, but not now. Will keep these weights for a week. See about next.
* Diet: on track at 2500.
* Weight: 165(0).
* Life/work: Spent on hour on the phone with Verizon and set up a wireless router. Will help me a lot with home office and stuff like that as this place is not well wired.

First legs day back. Pretty easy. Need to make legs day harder. Figure out some compounds.

Got my bf% done today. 11.0%. Was 10.15% in FEB and 10.5% in JAN. Can tell by the skinfold numbers it was up and I think I really did gain a percent bf. Have gained muscle also as I'm well heavier now than before.

Kinda tricky to judge the lean body mass gain (from day to day variability), but somewhere between 0.5 to 5 lbm# over the 3 months (maybe 2# as best guess.) and a pound or two on top of that since January. Slow, but am gaining about a pound a month.

Number is just one more peice of uncerstain data, but makes me feel OK that I'm not dangerously lean or fat. And lifting is working. Just gotta keep going. Still confused as to maintaing at 165 or 170, given my weight jumps around 5# from lifting and carb-water.

Snuck in a swim. Couldn't help myself. Felt good. At least I didn't bike to the gym. And I might want to go back to 6D lifting. I just miss it. And maybe biking to the gym on arms days again. :eek:

Tried some compounds. Need to figure out a better knee extension. I will play with some different angles, tomorrow, but I just suspect squat style work is just an issue for my patella.

The leg rows were fun. Liked the looks I got doing them. HA! Only one in the gym. :razz:

http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Hip ... Raise.html

Really my thighs look manly anyhow even if I am not that strong...so maybe better to stick with leg extensions which surprisingly hurt the patella least. Still like to blast the glutes and hammies a bit more and different than the isolations on the machines. Even if I have to leave quads alone. Need to research GHR and faceplants and stifflegged deadlifts and all.

Really what I liked about the squats and deadlifts was not so much the muscular development but that feeling of all body work...and the sweat popping out all over me. That and taking up space in the corridor with my deadlifts and moving weights around and all. I got a little bit of that, since I'm now transferring dumbells out to the stretching area for my tib anterior exercise instead of endangering people in the freeweight room with my balancing on a step with a weight on my foot. Get a sort of stealth farmers walk out of the transfer. :)

Gonna go up on legs end of this week. WAit two weeks with arms (legs feel stronger than arms). Will get their increases on alternate weeks, so it is less of a load every two weeks to increase both upper and lower.

Assessment:
* Workout: Total rest day for injury recovery/avoidance.
