    Warm up

    Cable Curls
    LT: 12,6,5x45kg (100lbs)
    TT: 16,6,5x55kg (120lbs)

    DB Pinwheels
    LT: 23x16's (35's)
    TT: 20x18's (40's)

    Bicep stretch: 90seconds

    Leg press calf raises
    LT: 12x50kg (110lbs)
    TT: 12x60kg (135lbs)

    SLDL
    LT: 8x160kg (350lbs) | 12x130kg (285lbs)
    TT: 8x175kg (385lbs) | 15x140kg (310lbs) Second set was touch and go

    HS V-Squat machine
    LT: 20x105kg (230lbs)
    TT: 25x140kg (310lbs)

    Quad stretch: 40seconds

    Ham stretch: 60seconds, each leg

    Not sure where some of the increases came from (especially on biceps and quads) but im very happy. The quad stretch was ugly, i was shaking from the first second but got 40 seconds. I was getting a little distracted on the calf raises as the roof started leaking above me due to the heavy rain.

    Planning my backload for tonight. Im thinking pizza and home made cupcakes.

    Upper 07-17-2012

    Warm up

    DB Incline Press
    LT: 13,3,1x30's (65's)
    TT: 11,2,1x32's (70's)

    Chest stretch: 60secondsx20's (45's)

    Upright Rows
    LT: 15,6,5x40kg (90lbs)
    TT: 15,6,5x45kg (100lbs)

    Shoulder stretch: 70seconds

    Skull deads
    LT: 17,6,4x22kg (48lbs)
    TT: 15,5,5x25kg (55lbs)

    Tricep stretch: 90secondsx20's (45's)

    Wide Grip Pulldowns
    LT: 9,5,4x75kg (165lbs)
    TT: 9,4,3x79.5kg (175lbs)

    Sumo rack pulls
    LT: 9x195kg (430lbs) | 12x170kg (375lbs)
    TT: 8x210kg (460lbs) | 15x180kg (395lbs)

    Back stretch: 60secondsx82kg (180lbs)

    I received a warning from one of the Instructors at the gym that i was making quite a bit of noise on the first set of rack pulls. He said i was dropping the weight which wasnt my intention at all, i cant hear anything due to having my ipod on, so i didnt know. On the second set, i tried to really control the negative and use a very light touch and go. It felt better and i asked the Instructor if it was any better and he said it was fine this way. Just something to keep in mind next time this comes around.

    Having a smaller backload as it was busy at the gym and i got home late. I had to do some chores and prep food for tomorrow so there wont be a whole lot of time to stuff my face.

    Jealous of your space, Bri. Got a garage too, but this is England - our garages are the size of your mailboxes.

    I'd install a squat rack, but I know that I'd drop a plate on my motorcycle and cry like a girl.

    A garage gym would be pretty sweet, though i do enjoy being surrounded by like minded people. Even if they only curl.

    Thanks all.
