Yikes, just learned that the Smith machine bar is calibrated to effectively only be the equivalent of 15lbs... didn't know that until now, so all those times I thought I was lifting 145 or 155? Yeah, not even :( So... going to try to move away from the Smith machine to the standard bench press and see how I do.

I still have some residual pain in my shoulder joints and my elbow tendons started hurting today too, so I think that's because I upped the workouts this week. So here's what i did today:

Lat cable pull downs - 5 sets x 6 reps @ 130lbs
Db pull overs - 5 sets x 10 reps @ 40lbs
Low cable row - 5 sets x 10 reps @ 210lbs
Bench press - 5 sets x 6 reps @ 135lbs
Incline bench, 1 set x 6 reps @ 105lbs, 4 sets x 6 reps @ 115lbs
Db flys - 5 sets x 10 reps @ 50lbs total
Cable crunches - 5 sets x 35 reps @ 140lbs

So not too much of a workout today :(

Taking a recovery day today. Partially because I'm tired, but mainly because I have to be in work early for an 11 hour day without any breaks...

But here's what I did yesterday, which wasn't much... I think working out for 12 days straight showed in my lack of energy yesterday. Another reason for a recovery day!

Standing calf raises - 5 sets x 8 reps @ 295lbs
Db squats - 3 sets x 8 reps @ 80lbs, 2 sets x 8 reps @ 100lbs
Db straight legged deadlift - 5 sets x 10 reps @ 110lbs
Walking lunges - 2 sets x 10 steps each leg @ 50lbs
Seated shoulder press - 5 sets x 10 reps @ 165lbs
Db front raises - 5 sets x 6 reps each arm @ 35lbs
Db lateral raises - 5 sets x 6 reps each arm @ 35lbs
Db rear flys - 5 sets x 6 reps @ 70lbs

I had that same realization with the smith machine in the past as well. How has your training been going?
