1/14/10:

Wow, I broke my butt doing squats today. Ha. I'm not sure what happened. But after my last set of squats I had a horrible pain in my left glute and I couldn't do things like OHP and deadlifts because I couldn't bend down to pick up the bar. Just did some upper body stuff instead.

Squats:
45x5
65x5
95x5
5 sets of 5 @ 115 lbs

OHP:
45x5 --> too much pain bending down, didn't do another set

DB shoulder press:
15x8
20x8
20x6

Assisted Chins:
80x8
80x8 (fail)
80x4 (fail)

DB Incline Chest Press:
20x8
25x8
25x6

Been so busy at work - I have been sucking at keeping up with my journal. :(

Lobster, I have to tell you, I feel your pain. I broke my butt lunging around the gym today! Foam rollers do the trick, though. I had never used one before today, and it totally helped.

In the evening I went to the gym in my apartment complex and did an easy 20 min. jog on the treadmill - my first time running since I messed up my knee in the fall, yay!

Don't hate me, but it's unseasonably warm! It was up to 70 degrees this weekend, usually it is in the 50's or so I am told. It was -38 degrees back home. I'm pretty sure moving here was the best decision I've ever made and I will cry if I ever have to move somewhere with winter again.

I agree. I was putting my road bike on my car in the snow today. What a pain!

Ugh, snow is so annoying.

1/25/2011:

Went to 60 min. bootcamp class. It had a bit of high rep weight stuff, was mostly high-impact cardio (lots of jumping around and what-not). I mainly go because I like the instructor a lot.

1/26/2011:

Squats:
45x5
65x5
95x5
5 sets of 5 @ 125 lbs

OHP: (this sucked)
45x5
65x5
65x4
65x3
65x3
65x3

Deadlift:
65x5
95x5
135x5

Assisted Pull-ups:
70x5
70x3
70x3
(felt really weak on these...)

In the PM went to the apartment complex gym and did 25 min. on the treadmill. Not pushing speed or anything yet. Just trying to get back into the running groove.

Oooo is it a boy?

Have you found a place to do real squats yet or are you still playing about with those silly machines? :boxer:

hahaha, no, it's a girl - I didn't mean LIKE like, just like. She's really funny.

I'm still doing squats in the Jones machine (it's like a Smith, but it can move horizontally as well as vertically). That situation is not going to change anytime soon. I'm just making do with what I have, better than nothing, right? :)

I know! I wish the stupid gym had 2.5 lb plates! The lowest they have is 5 lbs. 85 lbs I can manage for a couple of reps, but then I end up getting stuck under the bar (there's never anyone around, or else I'd just ask for a spot). I think I need to just buy my own 2.5 lb plates and take them with me.
