Didn't get any training in while traveling, but I've been strict with my diet since getting back and just got back into the gym today. Good workout.
I've switched to dumbbell bench press for now because they seem easier on my shoulders, but my left shoulder wasn't feel too good after my last set, which tells me that my form is fine but my old injury is still a problem. However, with proper warm-up drills and face-pulls directly after chest work, I think I can prevent any further problems, as long as I keep my ego in check.
Standing overhead press 3x5 100lbs - getting hard!
Deadlift 1x5 285lbs - physically and mentally difficult but kept good speed even through the last rep, probably never done this much weight for 5 solid consecutive reps, use to train in the 1-3 rep range, I'll be pumped when I can do 5 reps with 3 plates on each side, oh yeaahhh!!!!!
DB bench press 3x10 50lb dbs - continue with this weight for a few days to prevent injury
Face pulls w/ rope 3x12 25lbs (bump up weight)
This workout was done after 3 consecutive night shifts at the hospital and little rest, so hopefully it was harder than it would be normally, either way I'm happy with my progress so far, I just hope I don't stall for another couple of weeks.
Squats, abs and cardio tomorrow.
Using starting strength as a guide, but with my on-call employee status I have to be flexible.
