ok so I really really should start posting again. Cardio has been non-existent this summer, but all the classes are starting up again at the local gym (the ones at 5:30 pm anyway) which is great for me because I can just head there after work. Still canning salsa and green beans right now, have quite a few potatoes to dig up and tomatillos are just starting to get ready.

Meeting with my MT once every 3-4 weeks now, things are going pretty good - just trying to get the joints/tendons warmed up before I start lifting anything somewhat heavy right now. Have the yearly blood work this week, then hoping to start another 4-week Halo session.

ha ha - same here, but it doesn't seem to be working for me :) Just BUSY this summer, don't remember one zooming by so insanely fast!! Had one of my daughters move closer to home, so that means I get to spend more time with her four kids, so maybe that's where my time went?!?... ha ha

Glad to see you're still hanging around the boards. Still on the weight loss journey? I tend to go up in the summer and down again in the winter... vicious cycle :(

Today did chest/shoulders while my hubby did his leg workout. Did a LOT of warmup work to get my shoulder nice and warm for my working sets. Still kept weight lower than normal just because I didn't want to re-injure it :(

Flat DB Press ss w/ Upright rows
Incline Bar ss w/DB Front Raises
Flat bench DB Fly ss w/Side Laterals

was it for the day. Have grandkids tonight :) through the weekend, so will be spending some quality time NOT at the gym :)

I hear you on that one! It much easier for me to spend time in the gym in the winter than It is in the summer.

Well B it was actually one of the benches, I just used that. For the step ups when I get them in I use one that's mid-hip high (yes I'm really short) But for the jumps - seeing that I cannot jump to save my life, I opted for something smaller....LOL

Today chest & shoulders. Need to get some warm up in before we get to the gym, Seems my shoulder took too long to get warmed up this morning, so everything was lighter :(

DB Press (flat) (25) 15 (30's) 15 (40) 10 (45) 10 (50) 8

Incline DB Press (30) 15 (35) 12 (40) 12 This is the one that bothers me the most, just launching the first couple is painful, then it gets better

Cable crossovers (20 ea side) 3x10

Front DB Raise (15) 8 (17.5) 8 (20) 8

Upright Row (40) 10 (50) 10/8


Maybe next time I'll remember to warm up :( At least I got most of it done
