    Looking really strong Lenny! Especially feeling so beat up and eating like a girl... But hey your quads look ripped.

    monday/upper
    dumbells.flat

    machine press...1 set of 15 to failure

    seated sholder press...1 high rep set to failure.

    rack pulls from knee..gym bar no straps..605x5 dropset to 495x10,,,,this pretty much smoked my back and worse my grip..slippery gym bars stink

    biceps...1 set of cheat curls..seated 50'sx15

    sqauts no belt..
    315x15..rest pause(10 breaths in rack) then 5 more reps..

    stifflegged deadlifts..no belt.425x10..i think this matches and old pr when i was much heavier..i think it was @ iron island so it was quite some time ago..hardest part of the set was keeping the slippery gym bar.


    leg press horizontal...few plated?i forget..x20...legs smoked.

    leg extensions and leg curls 2 sets of each,,,,


    friday..(upper)
    chest press upper machine..trying to work into these since my upper chest is very weak from the tear and i can still feel some thing weird in there when i do any kind of upper chest press..anyway

    sholders..machine...
    1 all out set of 20

    seated dumbells..50's 3x10

    side laterals few sets..

    dips bwx25-----bwx20

    been training around 5 o clock at finest..im studying for a test for work so nights and weekends are dead for a while..been getting really good workouts though..gotta stop down @ eeb and get my straps for assistance..mabe monday
    im training dc style right now basically one or 2 all out sets for each bodypart..
