So I have been back at it for 2 weeks now after basically having a year off. My 40th birthday is 4 months away, so let's get in best shape ever for it. I'm going to try and backdate the workouts I've done, as best as I can remember.

Week 1 I just did various exercises to try and get used to it again so I will start at week 2.

October 3
Chest--Incline dumbell press:60'sx10;80'sx10;90'sx10
Flat Bench:135x10;185x10
Cable crossover:60x12x2

Did some light bicep work after that

October 5
Back--Lat Pulldown:120x12;160x10;190x9
Partial Deadlifts:135x8;225x8;275x6
t-bar rows:45x10;90x10;135x10

Traps--DB Shrugs:80x10;90x10;100x10
Behind back barbell shrugs:135x10x2

October 7
Bis and Tris
Skull Crushers:75x10;95x10;115x10

Right now I have bad pain in left shoulder that prevents shoulder work directly. But, I think I am back on track. Should be interesting.
