neck was doing much much better, but a fat ass combative patient i had to fight with all nigh put me back where i was. just did a repeat mri....going to physical therapy 2-3 time a week starting this week.
last few days-
fat neutral grip pulldowns, 4x10
meadows rows pyramid up to 7 25lb plates x 8 reps
reverse band deadlift (light bands) 6 plates x 6, 4 plates x 23
machine pullovers 4x12
flat db press simple pyramid 7 x 8 with small jumps, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80,85 real DEEP stretch at bottom, and stopped an inch or so shy of full lockout at top, trying to put as much emphasis on pecs and not triceps as possible.
incline seated machine press with mini-bands added, after 4 warm ups, did 5x5 with a little more than half the stack of weight.
reverse band bench press, monster mini bands, 5x5 pyramid up to 315.
pec minor dips 3 x failure (about 12-15 reps) super set with stretch pushups to failure (about 15-20 reps)
lying leg curls, simple pyramid of 8 reps until near failure, at last set of 8, did a strip set, 8-10-15--20 reps, then 20 partials with last drop set. BURN!!!!!
reverse band wide stance high box squats( my version of high box squats would qualify for most PL out there as parallel, lol , light bands, started with 2 45 each side and did 6 rep sets, added a 25lb plate each set of 6 until i could not fit any more on each side (5 25lbs each side plus the 2 45's) last set of 6 did strip set, taking a 25lb plate off each side until got down to the 2 45lb plates.
superset: lying machine leg press with leg extensions 3 rounds 20 reps
barbell good mornings, 4x12 x 185
did not puke today, but literally passed out after the squat strip set. was out(so they say) for about 10 seconds before I woke up in a daze.
