Notes: Todays workout made me go to a special place. Soooooo many reps for DL!! Why?! Torture, thats why! Hip was slightly bothering me so I biofreezed my hip and my shoulder and my knees. On the plus side I figured my squat out! But it was not till the 3rd set that I got it down and its not on video. Jim hates rep day! Fun, Fun day at the gym...
The "squat thing," don't know what to really call this. You put your feet in it and go back and squat with your feet locked under the pad, hits the quads pretty good.

That hateful piece of machinery is a sissy squat machine, and you're right, it nukes the quads.
Glad to finally know what its called. Still hate it though
If you really hate yourself, rig a band around your waist going down and behind you to something AND hold a dumbell. Then sissy squat.
Damn that's a good idea.

Notes: Good day at the gym. Limiting factor was my left shoulder. I lowered the weight on my dips and tried to up the weight on my lat raises but my shoulder was bothering me. Over all did some good work in the gym. Pretty happy about my bench though. Getting better Seated DB Press sucks!
I'm sure Jim has suggested it and definetly has good ideas for your shoulder that bugs you, but I just did a half-kneeling landmine press and it was very shoulder friendly.
We have done landmine presses before not kneeling though. That's something we will have to try. Thanks for the idea
The gym was awful today. The guy who use to do strongman messed with my shoulder so it hurt doing the deadlifts today. Couldn't go as heavy as I wanted to. Then another guy said he wants to bring me muscle fuel to try the next time we max squat.
Whoo! Jim did good on the Conan and yolk!
