Happy 2013! Jumping in here and well update the history details as we go. I'm on a 4 day split which is supposed to incorporate cardio daily. Thus far my RA will not tolerate any cardio. I have had some issues after lifting, but not nearly enough to be alarmed. A lot of my exercises were changed up due to loss of grip and inability to do a certain motion. My hands/wrists don't tolerate DB well so I work with a lot of machines and have to strap into some of them. That all being said ... I AM lifting and I AM working all I need to work. So I'm happy with that. The following reflects the routine he gave me, I have already modified some of it and am working on the remaining. Wed: Machine Incline Press 4 sets of 15/12/10/8 Cable Crossover 4 sets of 20/15/15/15 (did well, but may change to machine flies) Machine Press 4 sets of 15 Arnold Press 4 sets of 10 (any ideas here?) Due to the wrists, I will never be able to go heavy here Side Lateral Raises 4 sets 20/15/12/10 Hammer Shoulder Press 4 sets 20/15/12/10 Machine Lat Raises 4 sets of 15 Crunch 3 sets of 25 Lower Leg Raises 3 sets of 25 Ab Machine Crunch 3 sets of 25 Oblique Crunches 3 sets of 25 Thurs: Superset Leg Press 4 sets of 15 Hack Squat 4 sets of 15 Superset Smith Squat 4 sets of 15 Leg Ext 4 sets of 15 Triset Wide Stance Leg Press 3 sets of 20 Leg Curls 3 sets of 20 St Leg DL 3 sets of 20 Supposed to follow with Plyo Close Jump Squats and Single Leg Butt Squat with the RA, this isn't going to happen ideas? Friday: Close Grip Lat Pulldown 4 sets of 15 Wide Grip lat pulldown 4 sets of 15 Hammer Row 4 sets of 15 Weighted Machine Hyper Ext 4 sets of 15 Upright row 4 sets of 20 - I used the barbell on this and it killed my wrists, ideas? Rear Lat Raises 4 sets of 20 Weighted Side Bends 3 sets of 20 Weighted Machine Crunch 3 sets of 20 Reverse Crunch 3 sets of 20 Tomorrow is Bis & Tris and Plyo moves. I am perplexed on this one and my dude is out of town for the weekend. I am unable to do curls, BB, DB, and Cable nor the Tri ext or the OH ext and especially the dips. My wrists will not support these exercises. So I'm open to ideas here as well. I'm thinking machines for tris and I'm not sure on bis. The plyo moves are abs and butt. I can't do side lunges nor jump squats. I'll have to figure out alternatives.
