    BW x 30 total reps (multiple sets)

    Power Rows:

    275 lbs x 5
    305 lbs x 5

    Exactly, they are bent over rows where I reset the bar on the ground between reps and use a bit more momentum on the movement.

    For some reason Bent Over Rows have never been a good movement for me but these seem to allow me to do heavy rows without straining my low back since I am not controlling the weight all of the way down or holding it at the bottom in the bent over position.

    New Bar Holder & Light

    Here is a picture of the bar holder that I recently purchased and I also picked up a portable halogen light at Home Depot for $7 which has significantly improved the lighting for my garage gym. The light is an economy product so not sure how durable it will be, but for now it is great.

    305 lbs x 1
    335 lbs x 8 (belt and neoprene sleeves)

    Felt really good at the end of this session, quads and glutes were smoked.

    1/6 | Upper - Pressing

    Trained at the YMCA with one of my co-workers/training partners.

    Close Grip Bench:

    215 lbs x 5
    265 lbs x 5
    305 lbs x 5
    340 lbs x 5 - Rep PR, but strained my pec pretty badly on the last rep.

    Neutral Grip Free Motion Shoulder Press:

    100 lbs x 10
    120 lbs x 10
    150 lbs x 10
    100 lbs x 15, 50 lbs x 5

    Side Raises:

    35's x 5, 30's x 10, 25's x 15, 20's x 20
    30's x 10, 20's x 10, 25's x 5, 15's x 10, 10's x 10

    Pushdowns:

    100 lbs x 100 reps (35, 25, 20, 20)

    Rope Triceps Extensions:

    50 lbs x 50 reps (20, 15, 15)

    Triceps Kickbacks:

    20 lbs x 25 reps (15, 10)

    The pec issue is going to keep me from doing anything other than overhead pressing for a little while, but I was still able to do some deltoids and triceps movements without pain which is good. I have sustained a similar injury in the past (about 5 years ago) and was able to bounce back pretty quickly so I am optimistic.

    Comeback

    Obviously I took some time off following the injury last year (still did maintenance training), but did end up competing in the Monster of the Midlands Strongman Contest as a HW and placed 2nd in a tough field.

    My work situation now allows for more time online and in the gym so I am working to ramp back up and make a run at some of the 105 Kg Pro Events in 2015 as well as some NAS HW Amateur events.

    I will begin posting my training, diet, and other updates here.
