Glad to be back, Robert! Yeah, only a few days and already my journal was at the bottom of page 2, definitely the most activity I've seen in a long time!
Upper back and shoulder work last night -
Barbell rows in rowing rack setup -
1x5 @ 135 lbs.
1x5 @ 225
3x8 @ 265
Standing strict overhead press w/ 2" diameter axle -
1x10 @ 55 lbs. (empty axle)
1x5 @ 85 lbs.
1x3 @ 145 lbs.
10x3 @ 200 lbs., felt easier than expected, first 5 sets felt like I could have hit 5-6 reps on each. I guess I can always count on my shoulder strength keeping up even if it gets neglected for a month or two!
Hammer Strength Iso-Lateral plate-loaded pulldown machine -
1x10 @ 100 lbs. plus green bands (about 120 lbs. at start, 200 lbs. at finish of each pull)
1x10 @ 150 " " (170/250)
1x10 @ 200 " " (220 / 300)
Testing to see where I need to keep weight set with the bands attached for desired reps. First set, weight flew up like it was nothing, 2nd set just a bit of fight, 3rd set was just right, might have been able to get a few more, but reps were challenging enough!
Standing 1/3 overhead presses in new power rack (about 8" ROM from start of press to lockout) with axle -
1x15 @ 220 lbs.
1x18 " "
1x20 " "
Seemed to get into the groove better with each set, was able to add reps each time.
Seated cable row with V handle -
3x15 @ 220 lbs.
Seated cable pulldown "stretchers" with V-handle, pulling down to sternum -
3x25 @ 120 lbs.
Originally was planning on doing some light deadlifts tonight, but that workout taxed the heck out of me since I'm still getting used to training again, so one day off today and should be hitting it tomorrow or Friday!
