fifty c&p on both sides per set? that's a lot but i guess it's alternating, so not as much as it sounds? i'm very curious about if you end up sore tonight or tomorrow. and how much weight you used?

is your injury all better?

also!!! no stair stepper?!?!?! wtf?!?!?!

20pounds x50 reps each side (that's up to press and down 100x)
My shoulder(s) are much better, my back is great. All is good. I had a good rest from the gym when I was sick.
I feel great.
I may never use the stair stepper again, it seems kind of silly to me.

Had Vega pre then during then all-in-one shake in rice milk. I feel great after my run on the treadmill.
1/4 ml @ 4 mph, 1/2 ml @ 4.5, about 1k @ 5 then accidentally hit kill and lost the time and mileage rested 5 seconds resetting the machine then ran 1k @ 5.5 mph, setting a record for hr at over 180bpm! then walked 1/5ml @ 3 mph
So, about 2 miles run in total, plus the cooldown walk. I don't know or care about the time.

Yo John,

How are things in Cleveland?

Did you make it to the Arnold? I was away during that weekend. Haven't been there in years, since the last time we met up there.

Have a great weekend.

Yo Robt!
Cleveland is great. We broke the heat record today. St Pat's is when we plant our peas here, three types this year.
I didn't make it to the Arnold again this year. None of my vegan friends from here would commit, and I didn't want to go alone.
Now it's time to meditate before gym. (They close early on Sat)
Thanks for dropping in!

Deadlift 155x15, 15,10 (grip failing)
Smith squats 90x15,15,15
HS crunch 60x20,20,15
Scarey headache! We walked 70 blocks in sunny Cleveland and I think I underestimated the effect. A couple hours later after sprout protein, a banana, some ibu, tea and I feel good. Happy St Patty's Day!
