Are you asking for suggestions for horizontal pulling exercises for your lats? How about seated cable rows?

Would using wrist straps for horizontal pulling be easier on your wrist? I've never used them before so I don't know. Are you willing to cheat and use wrist straps?

How do your wrist feel doing lat pulls (vertical)? Your pulling more than your bodyweight now (140). How about Straight Arm Pulldowns for variety.

Either T-bar rows, barbell row, sumo-style or partial deadlift as alternatives.

Climbing indoors today, brought my brother out (not the one I took last time), and he tired out pretty fast so we weren't there long. Was fun to be back though :D

Finished off the day with 1/2 hour on my parent's exercise bike, but just to work off all the pumpkin cookies I ate today (see food blog for recipe :mrgreen: ).

Was super happy with the stiff-leg deadlifts today, didn't bother my hands, etc, at all :D . Gave those power planks a try today as well, killer stuff! I had to really struggle for those single minutes. Will have to keep these around.

DB Bench: 12 x 25s, 10 x 30s, 10 x 35s, 10 x 40s, 6 x 45s, 6 x 45s

Both benches were taken when I arrived, so dumbbell benching it was! Good session, good day, but then afterwards I was a bit hungry and gorged a bit too much. Seems like diet is starting to take center stage for me right now!

Image - 45 minutes elliptical, 10 minutes recumbent bike. Now I'm on the train home and I am absolutely crashing. Can't hardly move and feel a bit ill because energy is so low, why didn't I grab a Luna Bar on my way out the office?! Oh well, will be home soon and I will eat a nice dinner :D

11 Dec 08 - Thurs

DL: 10 x 95 lbs, 10 x 135 lbs, 10 x 135 lbs - nice and easy

Sumo: 10 x bar, 10 x 95 lbs, 10 x 95 lbs

Shoulder Press: 10 x bar, 8 x 65 lbs, 8 x 65 lbs

DB Incline Reverse Flys: 3 x 10 x 10s

Lats: 10 x 120 lbs, 10 x 130 lbs, 8 x 140 lbs

*stretching

It was good to do those nice light deadlifts, but will definatly not do them again without straps. Was okay, but pushing it for sure. I also think I get more out of reverse flys than rows. Might try these instead for awhile.

Also, just signed up for a 4-week long yoga class over Christmas break - looking forward to it :D

I'm in Seattle, there was a bit of a family emergency and I flew up last night. Well, I flew to Portland, Oregon then drove up to Seattle. Got in really late. I'll probably be here for a week or so, hope I can find some sort of training to do while here!

Wow, awesome photos!

Sorry I wasn't in Portland!

I do still plan to come to SLC and in fact I've talked to a good friend of mine about making that trip happen soon :)

Hope to see you in WA!

P.S. will you be flying out of SEA or PDX?

Connect with Ravi while you're there. He is great!

SLDL: 10 x 95 lbs, 10 x 115 lbs, 10 x 115 lbs

Then home for lunch. Was going to stretch at home, but ended up doing other stuff instead :mrgreen: . I really like this gym here, its called the Redmond Athletic Center. They gave me a free trial week, unlike the crappy Gold's I went to yesterday who wanted me to pay over $20 a day! Jerks. So glad to be working out again :D

Glad you're in the gym!

Hey, I got home yesterday and my house looks like your snow photos! It was 80 degrees in FL and now I'm covered in snow. I'll see what the weather looks like, roads look like, etc. and see if I can make it up to Seattle this week.

I'll keep you updated. I told Ravi you're there, he's excited be in touch. Have fun training and enjoy Seattle! It is a fantastic city!

-RC
