Nice return on your deads. It’s good to feel the iron again.


#443

Strong pulls with all the time off.


#444

Crippler, I’m catching up with you. Ha. I have to catch up with OG first.

2/17/17

Shoulders

Seated presses 3 x 5 @ 90, 115, 135 (I only recall the 135)

SGHP 3 x 10, up to 110

Machine presses w/free weights 3 x 10 up to 75 each side.

Steam room afterward helps fight the crud I undoubtedly caught from Bulldog’s log, but never caused memory lapse before such that I couldn’t fully remember the ramp up weights today. Oh well, end of first week’s 4 workouts under my belt.

Shoulders and upper back feel great. I’ve missed that feeling.


#445

You must be feeling a bunch better, cause your work has really picked up.


#446

My goal in my next life is to match Crippler’s lifts.

Honestly, what I wouldn’t give to be that age again.


#447

2/20/17 legs

squats 1 x 8 @ 135 then 3 x 3 @ 185, 225, 245

leg press 5 x 10 @ 225, rest were 315

hack squats 5 x 10 @ 225, rest were 315

treadmill 8 min, stair climber machines were full

#448

2/21/17 chest

bench 1 x 8 @ 135, 3 x 3 @ 185, 195, 205
machine pullovers 5 x 10 @ 150 through 190
dumbbell bench 5 x 10 @ 45s, 45s, 45s, 50s, 50s, 55s

#449

some volume coming back into the workouts… must be feeling better


#450

OG, I’m feeling stronger and I’m anxious to get to gym in mornings now. Steam seems to help my residual coughing.


#451

That I am sure is a wonderful feeling… enjoy the day


#452

One arm handstand push ups are just around the corner.


#453

No comment.


#454

2/22/17 no lifting

20 min treadmill with independent treads
few minutes steam


#455

I’m expecting you to do three finger handstand push-ups anytime now.


#456

Still, no comment.


#457

Yesterday was my roughest, longest courtroom work in about 2 years. Resuming regular lifting certainly helped my energy level; I easily matched a 15 year younger opposing counsel. Tired this morning.

pushups 2 x 50


#458

I got money says you did not “match”, you surpassed his ass! :wink:


#459

I’ve seen many young punk lawyers gets schooled by a seasoned veteran. Sadly many work for the state and I become the piñata.


#460

I doubt anyone on this webside thinks Crippler qualifies as a pinata.


#461

2/26/17 home
fooled around with kettlebell swings 5 x 20 @ 35

got to start light, back felt it later
