10-26-12 1hr 25min
DB stiff leg deadlifts 136# x8x8x8 > 146#
1 arm DB rows 88# x8x8x8 > 90.5#
1 arm DB rows 25% drop 65.5# x12x12x12 > 68#
Pullups +10# x10x10x10x10 > 12.5#
1 arm DB shoulder press 58# x8x8x10 (One of my greatest triumphs considering I could never break 100# shoulder presses in 5 years)
DB side raises 2x 35.5# x12x12x~12 > Stay
DB side raises 25% drop 2x 28# x12x12x12 > 30.5#

I found the issue I was having with pullups. It was the damn vest somehow. I'm not sure, maybe the way the weight sits, but hanging the weight off my waist instead helped dramatically. My energy intake is through the roof. For shits I have been kinda calculating calories after the fact and have been eating well over 3,500kcal daily. Felt a sudden burst of energy on my last set of shoulder press'. FEELS DAMN GOOD! Vegan power!

We are free whenever Amy. You are welcome here any time! We're always here for you, we love you! <3

Ran 45 minutes, 4 miles. 25% increase. Nothing from my knee for the first 40, then a dull ache for the rest of the run. I'll sit at 40/4mi for a few weeks.

Also did:
Hanging ab raises 0x15x15x15
Oblique crunches 53# x15x15x15
Vest goodmornings 95# x15x15x15

10-27-12 1hr 30min
Dips +35# x8x8x8 x0# x15x15x15 > 37.5#
Weighted pushups +15# x20x20x20 > 17.5#
DB chest flys 2x48# x10x10x8 > Stay
Triceps kickbacks 23# x15x15x15x15 > 25.5#
Chinups +22.5# x12x12x12 +0#x15
Vest+DB squats 100.5# x15x15x15
Vest+DB lunges 75# x12x12x12

I feel really good. I am making incredible improvements. I also finally have almost the perfect workout routine for me. It
now looks like this:

A1: Chest-Pushx3/Armsx2/Quadsx2
Off/Run: Abs/Calves
B: Back-Entirex4/Shouldersx2
Off/Run:Abs/Hamstrings
A2: Chest-Dipsx3/Armsx2/Quadsx2
Off/Run: Absx2/Calvesx1
B: Back-Entirex4/Shouldersx2

Rinse and repeat

For my chest day I am focusing on either dips or push chest movements but am now including only one bicep and one tricep movement per A day. I am also including one weighted bodyweight movement from each A day on the other, so I don't go 8 days without any dips or pushups.

DB deadlifts 146# x8x10x10 > X

Nice variation of training in here, keep up the good work.

Where are you running mostly, road or trail?

Thanks, I really like my routine.

The nice thing about my new 2.7 mile loop is that about 1/2 of it is dirt! Also almost exactly half is up hill which I love. I have nearly no pain in my left knee, maybe a dull boo after my 2nd running day in the week. I think it was a muscle imbalance, because I am training my legs hardcore now and it is nearly gone.

I'm settling in nicely and finding my niche in weightlifting. I don't really crave heavy deadlifts anymore, and will never do back or hack squats ever again. I'm saying no to a lot of lifts and variants and never doing them again. I will probably drop the weight on my DB deads and just do stiff legged deads with 100# because I am not comfortable with the popping and clicking coming from my knee. Then when I get a BB I can do some deadlifts, but nothing like the 300+lbs I was pulling. Not worth the risk of injury IMO.

I am quite happy with my lunges and vest+DB box squats even if I could only ever manage to fit 200lbs max on my frame in a clever manner. Still safer, for me, than hack or standard squats.

I'm stealing your routine today. Nice, thanks for sharing. Looks like you have been keeping up with your workouts, motivating for the rest of us to see.

Enjoy! And thanks, my motivation is pure desire to push my limits. Today was a day of 100% rest. No lifting, no running, just some wood stacking and a walk with mom. ^_^

I went to a Halloween parade and now I am playing food catch up. Big bowl of oats, big bowl of mashed chickpeas with garlic and veggies, and some animal crackers with PB, plus a protein shake. Mmm.

Ran 3 miles today, didn't train abs or hamstrings as I was supervising the install of our flooring and wood stove.

Feeling super strong for tomorrow's workout and I am going to do my abs and hams tomorrow!

Felt like I was gonna blow chunks while weightlifting, grabbed some of mom's snack crackers only to discover later they had milk in them. ): Poor little baby cows and momma cows. I'm sorry.

I need to eat a few hours before I weightlift. I can no longer go on with just a protein shake before/during/after lifting. My lifting days are way too extreme.

11-3-12 1hr 25min
Stiff leg DB deadlifts 96# x10x10x10 > 101#
1 arm DB deadlifts 98# x8x8x8 > 100.5#
1 arm DB rows 93# x8x8x8 > 95.5# drop 25% 70.5# x12x12x12 > 73#
Pullups +15# x10x10x8x7 > Stay
1 arm DB shoulder press 63# x8x8x8 > 65.5# (I must get a belt to stabilize my trunk while doing these)
DB shoulder flys 38# x12x12x12x12 Stay 1wk
Hanging abs x15x15x15
Oblique crunches 55.5# x15x15x15 > Stay

My body is strong, now I need to work on my mind and soul. I am setting forth a new goal to contact all my family and friends at least once a week and provide support to them through their struggles.
