    Great session after taking Saturday off and making sure that my fiancee's sister was ok. It was a tad of a hectic couple of days, but, other than that, everything is really humming along. Strength is up on everything and my body feels fresh considering the workload I've had lately. My weight is hovering around 205-207 and my main concern is S&C and not aesthetics. That being said, I'm still eating about 90% of my meals on my clean diet with the occasional pizza and burgers.

    Amazing session. My delts are really starting to come in and the vascularity in the anterior portion has finally returned. It's taken me years and years, but I'm finally developed the "rounded" look. Granted, for a few years, I wasn't focused on the look, but we all have some vanity in us.

    My back was cranky on this day and I wasn't able to loosen it up like I would have liked to have. My focus lately has been to strengthen the abductor and adductor muscles as I've been having lots of hip and glute issues for some time now.

    DC Stretches

    Brought the pain from the very first rep of the session. I've kinda stumbled across some new music that really gets my blood boiling and it hits me with a crazy source of vigor before my session. I either matched or set a PR on every chest lift as that has been my main area for concern lately (along with delts). Huge pump and I had a M-M on every rep. I had ben having some problems with my right subscapularis rolling over the scapula, but it stayed in place on this session and I've been hitting it with some extra foam rolling.

    10 burpess into pull-ups
    50 jumping jacks
    100 jump rope sips
    10 sprawls with a sit-out
    15 KB swings (50 lbs)



    On this day, I had planned on doing my normal conditioning of tire swings, etc., but it was raining so I had to switch gears. This was by far much more difficult and I was gasping for air after 15 seconds into it. I'm going to alternate between these conditioning sessions and, eventually, add extra rounds and/or exercises. Although I'm far from my peak conditioning from summer '08, I love the feeling of pushing beyond what you think is your limit and always striving to shave off some time.

    Great session and my confidence has been sky-high in the gym altely. I'm usually a tad weary to make any significant jumps in weight, but I've been much more daring lately. Not coincidently, i've made some great strides lately. I had to have a friend hold a 10 on the HS Rows because it would fall off during the lift. It sucks because the highest DB I have at work is a 100 and I hate trying to find parking on campus to workout at their gym (even though the DB go to 150 and they have tons of extra equipment).

    I have yet to have a bad D/T session during this log and I have set or matched multiple PRs each time. One thing I have really noticed since increasing the volume has been an increased ROM in the right delt since I've started all this extra work. Perhaps I've been too cautious with my shoulders over the years, which nt only stunted my growth, but also made the joint less flexible...

    I didn't warm-up properly for this and I was mentally fried by the time I started. I still lowered my time, somehow, but I was disappointed by how I felt. My back has felt like Sh!t and I skipped legs to allow my back to heal. Ironically, I think it's from my re-occurring hamstring and glute issues.

    PAIN. That's the best way to describe this session. Lots of awesome pain and multiple PRs=win.

    No pain no gain, awesome workout.
    Just inject.

  12. I'm really behind, so I'll just hit the main points:
    BB Rows-335x8
    Upright Rows-145x8
    Flat DB Press-95x3
    Conditioning-15:33 (shaved off 17 seconds)
    I've skipped legs the past 2 weeks to heal my erectors/glutes

    I'll get this back up to speed tomorrow.

  13. Well,
    I've managed to really strain my left AC joint. It's gotten to the point where there is pain while putting my shirt on/taking it off. For the past week or so, I've done pre-hab and foam rolled the joint on both sides and have stretched everyday. I've had bad shoulders for some time and they had been getting better lately. My ROM was improved and there was less day-today discomfort.

    However, it's all been shot down. My plan is multi-pronged:
    1. NEVER doing Flat BP for <3-5 reps; singles and doubles are done
    2. Diligent In/Ex Rotation and bicep tendon release
    3. Ice
    4. Cap cream

    Ironically, doing shoulder work isn't painful; it's chest presses/flys that cause the pain.

  14. Sorry to hear, hope recovery goes smoothly.
    Just inject.
