225lb bent over rows, 24 reps, all over again.
i feel soreness in my back where the spine meets muscle. it makes me want to deload and strengthen those muscles before adding more.

took a huge break.

with barbell:

95 pound overhead press, 8 reps and then 6

bent over rows, 135 pounds 8 reps and then 185 pounds 8 reps, then 4 more 185*8, realized i was going too light, but decided to call the last rep on those a failure because of involuntary neck movement.

225 pound deadlifts: 8 reps. can do more. honestly don't want to. not getting enough of an exercise with this low weight. i was surprised this session to discover that my muscles have hardly degraded (if at all) since i lifted heavily 6 months ago. is this common?

Damn dude you are strong! Or hopefully you still are. I think I've seen somewhere that your longterm strength lasts for some time, but I don't know if 6 months was normal. I think it depends on how good of a base you have. For example, I've been lifting for only 6 months so if I quit for 6 I'd probably lose most of it (not that I've gained too much anyway).

So what are your stats (height/weight)? Also, no love for squats? :D

i am nearly 400 pounds if not exactly that. i'm about 6'3". i need to lose weight real fast. i overate like crazy over the summer. i was down to 320 in april. my goal is to be 200lb and look like one of the guys on the main page of this site.

i did 8*2 hindu squats after i deadlifted. i don't have a squat rack. i should do some front squats though..

So I've gotten back into the swing of things, and am still without the weight I desire. I'm stuck doing deadlifts with 245 pounds, and only doing 8 reps because it feels a waste of time (or at least that's what I'm saying because my grip was so painful after the callouses started disappearing)
In other news, I'm up to 4 reps in bent rows (245 pound), and my overhead press has switched to barbell 95lb (currently resourced dumbbell weight only 45lb), which I pull off about 4 reps of also.
And I'm ~400lb, so doing 3x8 pushups isn't too embarrassing.. same with 3x8 stomach crunches.

for people who dont like walls of text:

DL 245lb 8x
BBR 245lb 4x
OHP 95lb 4x
pushups 3x8
crunches 3x8

that's my current routine since i haven't been a gym member in a while.. i don't know how soon i'm going to get any more equipment. who needs a barbell when you're fat and can do hindu squats? :D

So it's been a few years since I had a gym membership. Now that I have access to some more convenient weights (floor-bound 200lb plates plus 45lb bar weren't cutting it), I have been able to do more. My muscles haven't fatigued too much, but I'm now only capable of the following:

325lb deadlift 3 1/2 reps

55lb dumbbells overhead press, 18 reps (3x8)
65lb dumbbells chest press, 4 reps

235lb bent row, 18 reps (3x8)

100lb machine crunch, 24 reps (3x8)

this is pretty much where I'm at now. I'm guessing I should drop the weight a little on some of these, to build up a more complete likeliness of reaching 24 reps.
By the way, I just picked up some vega from whole foods, since they carry it now. Also, their new pre-workout mix, and some of the vega omega. (i like saying that)
