Thanks, Phoenix and SeaSiren! I'm feeling pretty good about my progress so far and looking forward to continuing to get stronger!

Yay! Finally did deadlifting. I think my form was pretty good, too.

Deadlift: 95# x12
Calf Press: 410# x14
Chest Dips: -30# x4
Upright Barbell Row: 50# x5
Barbell Bent-Over Row: 95# x10
Narrow-Grip Chinup: -60# x12

God I hate upright barbell row! Maybe I should drop it or try a different shoulder exercise there. UBR really hurts my shoulder.

If it hurts even when your form is correct, drop it!

I didn't work out on Thurs as it was Katrina's birthday and we had a dinner out for her. It was pretty cool--we chose an all-vegetarian restaurant. There were 20 of us, and I thought it was great that we supported the restaurant and that no one ate any meat at K's birthday. A lot of their food was vegan, so most people ended up with a vegan dish.

Anyway, I did work out today, and here's what I did.
Squats: 135# x6
Calf Press: 410# x15
Incline Dumbell Press: 30# (ea.) x8
Rear Delt Row: 70# x10
One-Arm Dumbell Row: 55# x8
Wide-grip Pullup: -70# x6

I realize that I don't report anything other than my weightlifting. I'll start reporting any other exercise as well.

Yesterday I went for a mountain bike ride, 2 hours. The ground slowly thawed over the course of our ride and by the last half it was quite muddy, which made pedaling more difficult.

Today I went to the gym.
Deadlift: 100# x12
Calf Press: 410# x15
Chest Dips: -30# x6
Upright Barbell Row: 50# x6
Barbell Bent-Over Row: 95# x12
Narrow-Grip Chinup: -50# x5

Went to the gym today and had a pretty lackluster workout. I blame it on the fact that I went alone rather than with my workout buddy. Working out with someone else is quite motivating.

Squats: 135# x6
Calf Press: 410# x15
Incline Dumbell Press: 30# (ea.) x9
Rear Delt Row: 70# x10
One-Arm Dumbell Row: 55# x8
Wide-grip Pullup: -70# x6

I didn't post Thursday's workout. Here it is.

Squat: 135# x9
Calf Press: 410# x 12
BB Bench Press: 75# x5
Barbell Shoulder Press: 55# x6
Cable Row: 100# x7
Lat Pulldown 95# x7

Not a good workout. I made progress on my squats, but nothing else. Oh well, I'll see how things go in my next workout.

Hi, FormicaLinoleum,
(love your moniker; reminds me of my childhood: We had a linoleum kitchen floor :D )

When you do your squats, what kind of weights are you holding?
And what exactly are squats doing for you? Or maybe, "why do you do them?" is a better question. Is it strength?

I have a barbell on my back, just like this:

I do them to increase strength and muscle.

I didn't work out last Sunday or Tuesday. On Tues night I went out for a little run instead. But Thurs I got back to the gym. Here's what I did.

Deadlift: 105# x12
Calf Press: 410# x16
Chest Dips: -30# x6
Upright Barbell Row: 50# x8
Barbell Bent-Over Row: 100# x6
Narrow-Grip Chinup: -50# x6

Deadlifts are feeling pretty good. The last time I tried them, last year, I had form troubles, but this time I feel like my form is good even though I am lifting more weight. I don't think I have reached my limit--I've been reaching 12 reps pretty easily each time. Maybe I will test my 1RM soon. Perhaps that will give me a good idea of where to start for reps.

On the upright barbell row I really concentrated on leading with my elbows and that made my shoulder hurt less.

I was supposed to work out on Sunday but it had snowed overnight and the University closed. Instead I went to our fitness room here in the building and did the eliptical for about 15 minutes and then played around on their multistation gym thingy. I didn't keep track of what I did since it was all machine stuff and not my usual routine.

Off to the gym tonight, very soon.

My workout partner finally resurfaced and we went to the gym together last night. I have not been going as regularly as I should for the past 2 weeks, so it was not a brilliant workout.

Squats: 135# x4
Calf Press: 410# x12
Incline Dumbell Press: 30# (ea.) x9
Rear Delt Row: 70# x10
One-Arm Dumbell Row: 55# x7
Wide-grip Pullup: -70# x7

We are thinking of switching things up a bit, maybe doing a different rep plan.
