Too bad you can't cruise with me..........another time though!

Maybe on Robert Cheeke's Your Face Just Fell Off Cruise :) hahaha

Yeah, let's be in touch about SLC......my book looks to be a few weeks behind schedule so it will come out in Jan sometime....and I'd love to come back in Feb or March and hang out, give some talks, train, brainstorm, etc.

See ya!

F**K! Went in for a squat day today, but my hip is so swollen/"inflamed" right now, I couldn't do jack. A little frustrated about it, but also because today just sucked in general :x

Leg Curl (both legs): 10 x 70 lbs, 10 x 90 lbs, 6 x 100 lbs

Blah, blah, blah.

Well, since so hurty today did 30 minutes of cardio on an eliptical machine and spent another 30 minutes stretching and that was it. Couldn't talk vegan801power into a cardio session on the machines ( :lol: ), so was by myself today!

Then, later that night I went ice skating :D . Hardly counts as training as it was very slow - just trying to keep from falling (good excuse to hold the hand of the guy I was with - yes it was a date!).

One more day of school after today!! :D

16 Dec. 09

Squat:
10 x 135 lbs
1 x 8 x 165 lbs
4 x 5 x 185 lbs

Leg Ext: 3 x 10 x 55 lbs - one leg at a time, supersetted with
Leg Curl: 3 x 8 x 90 lbs - both legs

LP Calf: 3 x 10 x 270 lbs, 8 x 270 lbs

Legs are absolutely jelly now! Still rockin' the 5x5 (more or less, that set of 8 counts as a working set, I swear!). Last time I did 5x5 this is the weight I topped out at! Will have to see how 190 or 195 lbs goes next week :)

Oh, and just because vegan801power hasn't been posting his workouts doesn't mean he isn't crushing it! He hit 10 reps on squat at 235 lbs today! :shock:

Hey! Great work! Also, glad to know Vegan801Power is still crushing it! Been wondering what he is up to.

PS I'm working on creating my book tour asap.....book is a bit behind, coming out in Late Jan/early Feb and I want SLC to be one of the first stops....so I'm figuring it all out to tour there in Feb or March or whenever it works.

Have a great one! Say hi to everyone on the farm for me!
