I wish. I forsee a lot of glute ham raises in future workouts since that hamstring incident.


#984

9/7

pushups 2 x 50


#985

How’s the hammie feel after yesterday’s session? Push-ups…now there is something I need to work back into the routine…


#986

OG it bothered me a few hours after yesterday’s workout. I think I overdid the glute ham raises, which I want have as my new best friend. Today it’s back to normal.


#987

9/10 new gym

glute ham raises 3 x 20

good mornings 3 x 10 @ bar, 95, 115

deadlifts 2 x 10 @ 135, 225, 3 x 5 @ 265, 1 x 3 @ 245

Injured hamstring was noticeable at last 265 rep, dropped to 245 and after 3 reps it acted up. Not as bad as 3 weeks ago, but I stopped the workout. Feels tender 2 hrs later.


#988

9/12 no gym

10 handstand pushups. Hamstring feels better.


#989

9/13 no gym

10 handstand pushups. Hamstring’s ok, will try deads next week.


#990

If it were me: I’d wait a whole week more than that. Hammies start to feel good fairly quickly but take time to actually heal up…


#991

I think you’re right after my experience on Monday.


#992

10 handstands are no joke. As we know, its taken me over a year just to get there.


#993

9/14

10 handstand pushups.

Getting gym withdrawal. Hamstring noticeable yesterday but I “powerwalked” to courthouse close to closing time and hamstring felt fine then.


#994

Your powerwalk probably scared some clerks as you bolted in. They knew you were there for business and not messing around. lol

dumbbell benches 2 x 10 @ 50, 55
barbell bench 1 x10 @ 135
