Happy cake Biker!


#1044

Back to your log CL. Maybe some new animal stories?


#1045

Not much to tell in the animal dept. i helped one of my peeps set a coyote trap and she caught a big bobtail! Two/three weeks later she caught amother one, but not a coyote one…lol
They had just about wiped all her chickens out.


#1046

Someone please explain what’s point of that cake icon? My birthday’s 6 mo away, and I’m not “cake soft”.


#1047

It’s your anniversary day of joining T Nation.


#1048

Closer to what?
You sound pretty good and fit

12/15 old gym

warmup kettlebell swings 4 x 20 w/40s, 45s

bench press machine 3 x 10 @ 140, 190, 190
machine cable flyes 3 x 10 @ something that felt like over a l00. ( Indicator read 325. Hardly.)
shoulder press machine 3 x 10 @ 90, 110, 110
machine pullovers 3 x 10 @ 150, 200, 200

Felt good after 3 weeks off. Had reaction to 2nd phase pneumonia shot.

12/18 new gym

Gym owner changed entry codes so I had to use glasses to enter the rather intricate code this morning. Apparently he’s deleting nonpaying members.

glute ham “machine” raises 3 x 10
deadlifts 1 x 8 @ 135, 1 x 5 @ 225, 2 singles @ 315, 1/2 @ 335.
squats 1 x 8 @ 135, 1 x 5 @ 225, 1 x 3 @ 275
preacher bench 3 x 10 @ 50, 70

Lingering soreness from Saturday’s kettlebell work. Did sqiats amd forgot rows and pullups. New gym has superior squat racks and deadlift area. Main reason for new gym membership.


#1051

My glasses are my kryptonite. I can’t see squat without my cheaters. Normally I forget them at home, so I am screwed.


#1052

Very familiar with the feeling.


#1053

12/20 old gym

warmup kettlebell swings 3 x 20 w/ 40, 45, 50

dumbbell bench 3 x 10 @ 45, 65, 80
machine pullovers 2 x 10 @ 160, 190, 2 x 8 @ 225, 160
seated press machine 3 x 10 @ 90, 110, 130
different angle machine press 3 x 8 @ some thing less than 135 ( no glasses)
tricep machine 3 x 10 at about 120, ended each rep with 4-6 sec isometric hold

Legs still sore from Tuesday; haven’t been sore in ages.


#1054

Machine pullovers with a nautilus machine?


#1055

A Hammersmith machine which mimics the dumbbell bench straddle pullover exercise really well. I understand it is good for chest.


#1056

Merry Christmas


#1057

12/27

pushups 1 x 50


#1058

Strong set


#1059

12/28

failed handstand pushups, so settled for 1 x 50 pushups.


#1060

Hardly “ settling “ at 50 consecutive pushups.
Impressive.


#1061

Unlike you, I can’t do 50 pullups in one workout.


#1062

I break them up into multiple sets between each set of bench or overhead press. Lots of sets. No added weight ( I’ve got enough of my own).
