Hmmm...those sound like man-makers into a chinup, actually.

Jungledoc wrote:So, I was pretty sore after Monday's workout, so I rested Tuesday, and lifted today. This is the second workout that y'all helped me plan.

Today I started with the complex that Immortal suggested with the additions that TimD suggested, so it went pushup on a pair of dumbells (25s), "rebel rows" (one row with each hand), burpee, DB curls, DB presses, put the bells down and did one chinup. I did a couple just to try it out, and then 3 sets of 6. That pretty well wiped me, just to show you the state of my GPP at the moment.

Next I did lateral raises, thanks to NightFall's suggestion. It's not something I have done very often, and he was right, it hits the lateral head better than anything else, and it would probably be a good accessory lift for me to have in my routine often. I have shoulder issues, and if I lift directly to the side my bicipital tendon get's caught under the acromion, and then snaps out about half-way down the eccentric. I keep my arms in about 30 degrees of flexion, and keep my elbows flexed about 30 degrees, and it goes smoothly. 5 sets of 10 with 11-pound DBs was all I could do, but it was just right. One more rep would have been pretty sloppy.

Finally, although I originally said that my usual lifts were out for this week, I did some BB bench.

I'll probably take tomorrow off, because Q lifted yesterday, and tomorrow would make it 4 in a row for him.
Yeah, whenever you do DB Laterals always have the elbows bent a little bit in. 30 degree is pretty much perfect.

I've always had pain if i keep arms full extended, but just a little bend with the focus on moving the elbows up helps me hit them pretty well.

They're obviously a fairly aesthetic muscle, as in functional training I think they're used mostly for stability of shoulder/chest exercises.

I didn't answer your question about my weight because I couldn't decide which way the lie should go. If I said that I'm really big, then the numbers I quoted would be more believable.

I'm not the most experienced, just the most loquacious. That means I talk (or in this case write) a lot. I've only been lifting a few years, started pretty late in life. I'm now in my late 50s. My real numbers aren't anywhere like what I said, and feel free to look at my log to see what I really do.

I'm stronger than I used to be, and not as strong as I'm going to be. My main goal it to keep improving for as long as I can!

Vacation is coming to an end.

Today I did BB rows s MattZ suggested. Then DB snatches, as per Peter's suggestion. I had decided against Tim's suggestion to snatch, since, as I reasoned, I don't know how to snatch. But I got thinking that I know what is involved in the snatch, know it well enough to learn, so I tried some. All in all, a decent workout without killing myself.
