i really go by what i'm feeling that day...
sometimes it's heavier, sometime it's lighter.
i need to post up my shoulder session from monday,
i'll try to remember what weights i used and put them in there for reference.
i will say that my weights are nowhere near what i was using before my surgery.
i've cut the weight back and have been really focusing on form (which is first and foremost to me)
and mind-muscle connection.

Good stuff Joe. I know your shoulder still likes to nag your numbers but if it makes you feel any better at all your still pressing way more than I can!
Warrior juice FTW! :bruce2:

Enjoy the SUTAS and hella good leg session. Nice to know I wasn't the only one partaking in punishing the legs today.

Sat 10/18, Chest
went to LA Fitness with my roommate and another buddy on a free pass.
ok, guys can talk all the sh*t they want about this place not being "hardcore" and all that...
but, damn do they have some nice equipment.
i have to admit, it was nice having all of that top-notch stuff at my disposal.
not only are the db's and benches, etc really nice
(all weights are the same brand, all rubber-coated with built-in handles, etc),
but they have like 4-6 types of machine for every bodypart...
for chest, they had traditional HS machines in flt, inc, and decline, as well as the fancier weight stack HS, and several other types.
oh, and the scenery wasn't bad either
anyway, on to the workout...
rot cuff warm-up: about 15 mins... 5lb db's, 10lb db's
inc db press: 50lbs x 20 x 20, 70lbs x 15, 80lbs x 10, 90lbs x 11
(only expected 8 or so, but had a good a spotter and had a few extra reps in me...
i should've probably bumped up to 100's for a set, but thought i'd go easy on the shoulder)
dec HS press: 2 pies per side x 12 for 4 sets
(really concentrated on pec contraction)
pec fly machine ss w/ pec deck: 4 sets or 12 each
"body something" chest machine (one of those multi-exercise-pulley-type machines... really cool):
giant set: inc press, dec press, fly, 12 reps each, 3 g sets
cable x-over: 3 sets x 20 reps (really stretched and pumped here
IA + EAA Nitro

Hey Joe, just found your log here. Consider me subbed. Your puttin' in some good workouts. Real nice work on the incline DB press. Gotta love Giant Sets!
10-20-2008, 04:25 PM
Joe, you goin machine crazy on us? LOL! Good on ya switchin it up bro. That's how it's done man. Corp gyms are bad. It usually only the crowds that are the issue. Most of them have great equipment.
10-20-2008, 05:33 PM
but damn, all of the brand new equipment was s-weet.
there were definitely several of the "corp gym types" roaming around though.
also several gym cougars roaming too haha.
i was a little machine crazy , but every time i finished up a set i saw another cool machine to try.
i have til this sat to go back on a 7-day free pass...
i'd really like to hit a back day (all kinds of cool row machines) and a leg day there too.

Joe destroying all the machines in sight... I like it. The machines are a really good change of pace for me.
