Another odd workout day.
Carrying old copiers up the stairs from the basement.
I'm not sure if I will go to the gym tonight

I worked my way up to 185 and got 3 reps
Dropped back down to 165 and did a few sets.

Wow Montana, you've improved SO much since last I was around :D . That's awesome!

Hope the elbow is good next bicep session :)

Thanks Crystal, nice to see you back here.
My elbow has been bothering me for months.
I'll just keep using the machines until it's better.

Hey Montana,
I just noticed your journal and think we have a little in common - I started lifting weights summer 2006 at the age 47. I'm glad to check back here and keep up with your progress :D

Hi bunny, glad you stopped by

Tuesday, June 26

Deadlift night.
I haven't deadlifted in about a month. Been too lazy I guess.
Last workout I got 2 reps of 245
Tonight I got a max of 6 reps of 245
I did a couple more sets until I could only do 4 reps

Also did some shrugs, rows, and pulldowns.

Arm Day (or rest day from bench, squat and deadlift)
I thought about squatting, but my gluteus were still a little sore from deadlifting Tuesday.

EZ Preacher Curls.
My sore elbow felt ok using a wide grip on the curls.
Still made a pop everytime towards the bottom of the movement.
But no real pain.

I had somebody touch my elbow as I straighten it.
She said "ewww" when it popped

Also wrist curls, both forward and reverse.

Should have been squat night.
But I've got the deadlift bug, so that's what I did.

Raised my max from 245x6 to 255x6
Definite improvement.
Next time 265x6

Also did shrugs, rows, and pulldowns.
It was 100 degrees here today, didn't feel much like burning up the treadmill.

My back hurts pretty bad today.
Not really sore, but a very sharp pain if I bend over.
I might have overdone it last night deadlifting.
Or possibley bad form.
I think I'll drop back on the weights and concentrate on form.
Higher reps / less weight.
I'm still very new to deadlifting, this was maybe my 7th workout.
