    I dont know if I am going to be able to do more than singles for deads cuz of the idiotic plates.

    GMs were a little tough. No sense going up.

    Seated Calves were too easy.

    Oh, nice. I've decided to get back in the gym after a few year hiatus, so I've been lurking for the past few days. You're looking strong post-hernia. Good work.

    I've had the "pleasure" of using these types of plates for DLs too, and I agree completely with you. Set the bar down and it starts to roll away, or worse, into your shins.

    Warm ups..
    Cable Crunch

    Bench Press
    135lbs for 2 sets, 6 reps
    225lbs for 2 sets, 5 reps
    275lbs for 8 sets, 4, 4, 4, 4, 2, 2, 1, 1 (45 sec RI)

    Flat DB Press
    115lb DBs for 5 sets, 5, 5, 5, 4, 3 (60 sec RI)

    Standing Alternating OH DB Press
    55lb DBs for 5 sets, 5 reps (30 sec RI; 2 RPs)

    Cable Pushdown
    130lbs for 3 sets, 12 reps (30 sec RI)

    KB Clean & Press
    20kg for 3 sets, 3 reps (20 sec RI)

    Static Stretched


    Nursing a cold or whatever the fuck. I got over it quick (3 days) but the remnants of the snot was stuck in my respiratory pathways. On set 5 on the bench, a snot bubble came into my mouth and exploded all over my tongue. I went to the bathroom twice to blow my nose, but nothing.

    DB Press just felt harder than usual. We got new DBs too and yes, these felt much heavier than they should. Here, I was snorting and swallowing snot left and right. Couldnt spit it up, but my ears got so fucking clogged.

    Shoulders were a misfire. Shouldve done 50s. Triceps actually felt great. About fucking time.

    I wanted to do a caveman but dammit all, I just couldn't breath well enough. Now I feel fine and thus, wasted a cardio session.

    Whats wrong with getting new shiny round plates? The ones we had before the renovation had handles too. Why the change?

    Thanks. Theres really nothing to it. It seems those that dont work out and get a hernia may work out afterwards cuz the surgeon says so and thats where horror stories come from. I think I healed fast because I work out in general too.

    Where are you lifting?

    Warm ups..
    Hip Mobility

    Squats
    135lbs for 2 sets, 6 reps
    185lbs for 6 reps
    225lbs for 3 reps
    245lbs for 8 sets, 3 reps (45 sec RI)

    Marching DB Lunges
    60lb DBs for 5 sets, 5 reps (60 sec RI)

    Standing Calf Press
    160?lbs for 5 sets, 5 reps (20 sec RI)

    Caveman x 1.5-2
    Eliptical 25 min

    Static Stretched


    Squats were a bit easy. Lunges were juuust right. Which sucks cuz I used to rock these fucks.

    Calves were just thrown in and I am not positive on where the rack was.

    Caveman wasnt completly 2 rounds because I went down in weight and volume during the Getups.

    I also did eliptical and ya wanna know why? When I was a young boy, I did what many young boys did in between crying after jerk off sessions and thats doing so much volume at the gym until I couldnt move any joints. Without going to that extreme, I thought, golly, an hour or so after I work out, I feel like I didnt work out at all. So why not throw some more activity in when I have the time? Thats why.

    Planet Gayness. Can't beat the $10 a month and I'm probably weaker right now than I have been in my entire adult life so I fit right in. Once I get rolling again I'll probably go over to LA Fitness. Everyone and their sister lifts there now.

    Well as long as its temporary, I can forgive.

    Unilateral HS Row
    1 plate for 10 reps
    2 plates for 10 reps
    3 plates for 6 reps
    4 plates for 2 sets, 5 reps (45 sec RI)
    4 plates + 10lbs for 3 sets, 5 reps (45 sec RI)

    T- bar Row
    2 plates for 5 reps
    3 plates for 5 reps
    4 plates for 2 sets, 3 reps (30 sec RI)
    4 plates + 25lbs for 6 sets, 3 reps (30 sec RI)

    Chin Ups
    BW for 6 sets, 5 reps (30 sec RI)

    Standing Alternating DB Curl
    40lb DBs for 5 sets, 5 reps (30 sec RI)

    Caveman

    Stadium!

    Static...aw fuck.


    Large workout day.

    Unilaterals came first because of the volume. The T-bars did feel better with the small reps, but I didnt like doing 8 deadlifts of it. Buuuut it wasnt bad.

    Chins were so much better than they had been! The curls too...! I think..

    Everything can go up!

    I threw in a caveman which tethered on the MHR, but the stadium is where I shined. Ok, no I didnt, I did maybe 15 min of HIIT, but fuck it, thats tough after all that, in 90 degree weather.

    I really, really like doing singles! But it took me so long to get into the groove cuz of the fucking edged plates! This weight did feel a bit, weird. But I only felt off when I did focus on form. I also didnt use straps so that was a tiny distraction too.

    Shitty day. But 2 things were hindering me.

    One, last night after my workout, I ended up getting a near migraine after I ate dinner. Ive never had this happen. A headache, really? I had only Excedrin which has caffeine in it, so I took Nyquil and 2 melatonins and hit the sack. When I woke up, I felt groggy. As I lifted, my energy was down the tubes, so this had to have had an effect.

    Two, My entire sinus area is still clogged from the would-be cold I had last week. Seriously, I can get over shit quick, but my snot stays around for a long time. 10-14 days usually. I actually cleared my throat around the 4-5th set of bench and a shot FLEW out of my mouth, onto the new floor. This, couple with the downers I took last night, mustve fucked me.

    I cant really add to anything I did today because of my status. Shit, I felt a headache whenever I started pushing the WARM UP benches up. I mustve got a lot of snot up in around my eyes thats messing with me. That being said, I looked like this around the DBs:



    I took some ephedra, aspirin, and some expectorant a little while ago and plan on being in a steamy shower. Thats all I got.
