That is a damn good overhead... ever given any thought do doing a strongwoman meet? You've got a great deadlift and good overhead strength, I think you'd do well :)

Awww, thanks everyone! Yes, it was indeed my B-day, I'm officially 30! :shock: :D I spent it on the road down to Mexico, woke up to below freezing temperatures (we were camping out) and frost on my sleeping bag :P Spent most of the day driving, but it ended in Mexico on the beach so I'd say it was a great birthday :D

And thanks for the encouragement ralst! I would like to compete a little here and there :D

23 Nov 09
Back at it, and back from Mexico where I was working my tail off and occasionally lounging on the beach and swimming in the gulf :D On to the workout, with vegan801power as usual:

Squats: 20 x 135 lbs - its amazing what a little rest will do, these all went up "easy" and I hardly paused, a first for my 20 reppers in a long time!

Bench: 15 x bar, 10 x 75 lbs, 6 x 100 lbs, 5 x 105 lbs, 5 x 105 lbs, 4 x 110 lbs, 4 x 110 lbs - went back a week in my bench program since I was gone so long in Mexico (9 days!)

Cable Incline Fly: 10 x 20 lbs, 10 x 20 lbs, 5 x 30 lbs
Cable Decline Fly: 10 x 30 lbs, 10 x 30 lbs, 7 x 40 lbs

Welcome back my friend!

Great to see you back in the gym.....me too, 12 of the last 16 days I think. It was 9 of 10 and then I went to AZ and crushed it.

Looking forward to seeing you when I'm back in SLC!

The same grill I have been to?

You can eat like a machine when it comes to those blocks of tofu and curry sauce! You rocked me!

Hey, I was pressing 100's today for incline and they didn't fall on my face like they nearly did in SLC....I guess if they had fallen.....my face would have fallen off!

Hope all is great!

Say hi to Harold for me as well and keep training hard!

I'm hanging out with Julia again and it's great!

Hope we can both come to SLC to see you sometime.

Yup! Same grill :D Thanks for checking in, glad to hear all is well with you (and Julia! Hooray!! :D ).

1 Dec 09 - Tues
*6 minute warm-up on eliptical

Push Press: 10 x bar, 10 x 75 lbs, 10 x 85 lbs, 6 x 95 lbs, 6 x 95 lbs

Incline Sit-Ups: 40, 35

Machine Rear-Delt Rows: 8 x 85 lbs, 9 x 85 lbs, 9 x 85 lbs, 7 x 75 lbs

DB Seated Shoulder Press: 10 x 27.5s, 10 x 30s, 10 x 30s - this was after a failed attempt to do upright rows, but my elbow is NOT cooperating :x , but these were okay :)

Good shoulder day with vegan801power, especially for me having an elbow that's pretty much out of commission! Its funny how things go, pressing was no problem but just about everything else hurt! Even went climbing afterwards, but it was all crazy mostly one-handed moves as I couldn't pull off my left arm so good :roll:

AND, pecs are so sore from yesterday :D . To quote my awesome lifting partner "my pecs had to call the rape crisis hotline after that session" :lol: .

Box Squats: 10 x bar, 10 x 135 lbs

Supersetted with HS LepPress Calf: 4 x 10 x 270 lbs

And that was it, enough to make me want to cry - damn you vegan801power! :lol: My autoimmune crap has been bugging me so much lately, was running a fever a little last night and I know its just because I've been overdoing it too much lately (not just in the gym, with school mostly!!!).

Nice!

Glad to see the workouts are awesome!

I trained legs today too. Say hi to Vegan801Power for me too!

Hey, I'm getting pretty good at Crushing It and want to start brainstorming ways to help raise funds for Ching and to get a lot of eyeballs to your blog. We should chat sometime :)

All the best!

Hey, if you're free in late March, we should go on the Crush It Cruise!

www.crushitcruise.com

Recover and have an outstanding week!
