    I wasn't happy with my workout on Sunday even though I tied a bench pr. I felt like I half assed the rest of the workout and it wouldn't stop bothering me so I said screw it and did my workout over with a few changes.

    Bench
    135x20
    225x10
    255x5
    285x3
    315x7 (happy that I hit the same number as the day before and I know benching 2 days straight wasn't the smartest thing but I needed to do it for the mental reasons.)

    Pull Ups
    BWx10
    BW+55x6
    BW+65x3
    BW+75x3
    BW+90x3
    BW+100x3
    BW+100x2
    BW+100X1 (this is the first time I tried going heavy with weighted pull ups and I am definately happy with the weight I used)

    Chest Supported Rows
    2plates x15
    3plates x15
    4plates x15
    4plates x15

    Seated DB Clean/Tricep Rollovers/DB Curl superset
    10/20/10 w/50lb. DB's for 3 sets

    Defintaley made up for the workout the day before, like I said it may not have been the best idea physically but mentally I needed to do it, and I got the 315x7 on video so that's a plus.

    Nice work on the two different 315x7 workouts, sounds like your bench is coming back strong.

    Physical Therapy 12/9

    Stair Climber 15 min.
    Single Leg Calf Raises 3x15
    Step Downs on stairs 3x15
    Band stretches 3x15

    Then the doctor did some other stretches to loosen up the ligaments and the joint. A lot of my mobility is back, now I need to get the strength and control back.

    Squats 12/9

    Box Squats
    135x20
    185x12
    225x5
    275x5
    315x5
    315x14

    Power Squats
    5ppsx8
    5ppsx8
    5ppsx8
    5ppsx8

    Back Raises
    3x20

    Everything felt like crap today, absolutely everything. I could tell from how just the bar felt that this wasn't going to be a great squat day. My ankle was tight and I got a little pain in the knee on my injured leg. I am going to deload next week.

    Mil. Press/ Deadlift 12/11

    Mil. Press
    145x5
    165x5
    185x5

    Deadlift
    135x5
    225x5
    315x5
    405x5
    500x5

    This was my first time deadlifting from the floor since I broke my leg Sept.7. I couldn't be any happier with todays weights. I also did this without a belt, with a squat bar, and in a pair of Jordans because I left my chuck taylors at home. I probably had 2 or 3 more in me but I didn't want to push it to far.

    Lat Pull Downs
    stack x15
    stack x12
    stack x10

    Lateral Raise Machine
    100x15
    100x15
    100x15

    Single Arm Barbell Curls
    45x8
    55x8
    55x8 If you haven't tried these, try them. In my mind they are one of the best bicep excersises

    Tricep Pushdowns
    115x30
    115x30
    115x30

    Tonight was a great workout, it feels amazing to be able to deadlift again.

    You resuming the deads now after a few months away from them is great news.

    Squats 12/15

    Barbell Squats

    135x12
    185x10
    225x5
    225x8
    275x5
    315x3
    315x3
    315x3 This is the first time I have done normal squats since I broke my leg. My strength wasn't to bad and I was able to go below parallel. When I got to 315 it was light but my right leg was shaking so I kept the reps low and focused on staying as light as possible. I am going to try and focus on some single leg excerises like lunges to help my right leg catch up, and I am going to cut the the acc. lifts out for my left leg. I'll try this for 3 weeks and see how it goes.

    Leg Press
    6pps x8
    8pps x8
    8pps x8

    Hamstring Curls
    3x12

    BW is 246

    Keep working on that right leg man, one day it may overcompensate...solid squats and leg presses.

    Awesome lifting in here Nick. Do you plan to compete at all, once you have fully recovered?
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Yea I want to compete. I was actually planning on doing my first meet this past October but since I broke my leg I couldn't. Thanks for the support.

    here's to a speedy recovery... Took me nearly 5 months to start doing any kind of heavy lifting since I injured something in my upper and lower body at the same time, haha.
