    The deads felt great yesterday. My hamstring is probably 80% right now. The director of the gym where I lift said my 3 sets of 5 looked like warmup sets. That definitely pumped me up!

    That's great to hear, patience is paying off. I can't wait to see some big numbers on the deadlifts.

    Just had a very good round of forum posts where I commented on/tore up lots of people's workouts where they basically did bicep curls. Very pleased.

    Push
    Warm-Up: 7 laps around gym, shoulder work, fat bar pullups
    Bench
    1x10 @ 135
    1x10 @ 185
    1x6 @ 225
    3x5 @ 260
    Incline Bench 3x6 @ 190
    Dips 3x8 @ 25
    Close grip bench 3x8 @ ?
    Calf work

    Ran out of time due to working late and didn't get to close grip bench and calves. *sigh*

    The deadlifts just keep getting heavier and the hamstring is holding up. You must be starting to feel confident that you are healed up. Good stuff.

    Helped a friend move yesterday for 3 hours to a 3 story condo and my body is toast. Taking the day off. Peace!

    Thanks, Off Road. I am getting more confident. I feel like I am about at 90%. I could go heavier right now, I think, but I like the progressive overload approach to rehab. Will add 5-10 pounds every week.

    Legs

    Squats 3x5 @ 285
    Lunges 3x8 @ 50s
    Step-ups 3x8 @ 40s
    Hamstring Machine
    Calves - probably gonna load up Smith Machine and do toe raises- only time I go near that thing!

    I set new goals recently in my signature. My leg maxes were really outdated because of my hamstring injury and I can't get close to those right now. So I wiped the slate clean and set some new goals:

    Squat: 405
    Deadlift: 405
    Bench: 315
    Total: 1125

    I would also like to set some goals for military or push press. I need to test where I am at with those. I want to have these goals completed by June 6th. My sister-in-law is getting married in Charlestown, SC and I am sure there will be some swimming in the ocean and I definitely want to have the size associated with those numbers. On my next paycheck I am ordering an Inzer 10mm red, white, and blue belt that will make me feel like Captain America so I am pumped about that!

    Peace Out! Hallelujah it's Friday!

    Those look like good goals. Good luck on getting your beach body. Just don't start toning your bicepts

    This week is a little hectic...
    Monday: Work all day, drive 1.5 hours to hang out with my brother, hang out, drive 1.5 hours back, go to bed.
    Tuesday: Work all day, drive 2.5 hours to see in-laws.
    Wednesday: Out of town for a conference
    Thursday: Out of town
    Friday: Out of town
    Saturday: Out of town

    Workout: ...

    ...

    ...

    Not sure! Maybe find somewhere in San Fran to lift. Gyms in hotels are usually terrible. We'll see, I guess..

    Looks like I have time for a 30 minnute workout today. Going to get warm, deadlift, some accessory movements, then get on the road.

    Warm-Up
    5 laps around gym
    wide grip, chins, neutral - 10,8,6
    Quad machine
    Hamstring machine

    Deads
    1x10 @ 135
    1x8 @ 185
    1x6 @ 225
    3x5 @ 285

    Good mornings
    3x10 @ bar

    Calf raises, Smith Machine
    3x 15,12,17 (weird numbers I know, couldn't make up my mind)

    Bicep Curls, sitting
    3x10 @ 30

    Discovered today that the wink link in my deadlift is my lower back. My legs were handling the weight quite well, in fact, I was pretty pumped about my legs, but my lower back was lagging. I will address this in future workouts.

    Wednesday 12/16
    Did a smattering of exercises in hotel gym. Had dumbbells up to 50 and some decent machines. One of the nicer hotel gyms I have been in. I was sweating when I was done.

    Legs

    Warm-up
    Jog
    Leg extension 3x8 @ light
    Good mornings 3x8 @ bar
    Leg curl 3x8 @ light

    Squats
    1x10 @ bar
    1x10 @ 135
    1x8 @ 185
    1x6 @ 225
    1x6 @ 275
    2x6 @ 300

    Good Mornings 3x8 @ 65
    Leg extension 3x8 @ 140
    Falling Hamstrings 3x6 @ bw

    I am really pumped about finally getting back into 300s again with my squats. Everything felt great except my left knee was a little sore. Also, the leg extension machine is one leg at a time, and at 140 my left leg was having a considerably harder time than my right. Definitely can tell that leg was the injured one. Will have to keep rehabbing and getting on it.

    Will be able to get a lift in Wednesday before I am off for the holidays, traveling around. Will only have to miss Friday. May try to deadlift and bench on Wednesday just to make sure to get all my major lifts in this week.

    Thanks! It is real close. There was a little tenderness today, but I would expect it to be so after the day I had since it has been so long since I have had one similar.
