    Hurt my left shoulder a bit Tuesday, well it is always hurt, but I aggrevated it, so I did not workout yesterday and did very little today - it will get better quick, I have faith.


    Strive preacher curl machine


    Barbell curls

    Reverse grip pushdowns

    That was all, shoulder was bothering me, but not too bad so I decided that was enough before I made it worse, I hope to do a regular back workout tomorrow, guess we will see.

    Well, did not do a normal back workout today, but I did one, here you go.

    Pulldowns, v-handle

    Low cable row, wide underhand grip on long bar

    One arm db rows
    140x4 each arm
    140x4 each arm
    120x8 each arm

    T-bar row
    3 45's x 6
    5 45's x 6
    6 45's x 4

    Straight arm cable pullovers with rope handle, hands close at top and spread at bottom, much harder than with a bar.

    That is all, my shoulder was feeling pretty good so I did not push my luck.

    Should have done legs today, but it's my b-day tomorrow and we are going out dancing tonight, so I did a light chest/shoulder workout instead - shoulder still an issue.

    Incline cable flys, not sure on weight, I just write down the number on the stack
    13x15, hard - good burn

    Incline bench press
    165x15, barely - reall good burn going

    Flat DB Flys
    40's x 15
    50's x 15
    60's x 12

    Cable Machine Press (seated Ground 0 chest press)

    Strive shoulder press + Incline BB raise
    70x15 + 30x15
    90x15 + 30x15
    110x15 + 30x15

    Rear Delt DB raise

    Triceps pushdowns - v-bar

    That's it, off to party!

    Birthday was fun, Sunday morning was not too bad :) My workouts this week have sucked because of my left shoulder/trap thingy - they are not worth listing. I will get back to posting them when I actually do one worth while, hopefully that will be soon. Later.

    All the best with recovery!

    The main thing is that you at least done some working out, most people would use the excuse of an injury and leave training.
    You got some stimulation, that's enough.

    Ah, been a while since I posted a log. Scoular, I would never miss a workout because of something so small as my shoulder bothering me, that has been going on for over 10 years - you could say I am used to it. I just figured it was not worth waisting everyones time listing workouts that were not worth much. My training has actually been going well, shoulder is doing good again, it can seriously come and go over night, I have just been lazy and not typed one in a while. Here was today's

    Barbell shoulder press
    95 x 10
    135 x 10
    165 x 3
    185 x 3
    195 x 3 + 3 upper half reps

    Side DB Raises
    60's x 6
    65's x 5
    65's x 5 + 40's x 12

    Rear DB Raises (I do these bent over, not seated)
    60's x 8
    65's x 6
    65's x 6 + 40's x 10

    Close Grip Bench Press (these are the only thing kinda buggin my shoulder so I am keeping the reps low with any weight that is even remotely stressfull on my joint)
    135 x 10
    185 x 3
    195 x 3
    205 x 3 + 185 x 6

    DB Skull Crushers
    40's x 8
    50's x 6
    50's x 5 + 30's x 15

    150 x 8
    195 x 6 (this is the stack at my gym + a 25lb plate, just to give reference to what the weight means, all cable machines are different)
    195 x 5

    Bench press to neck, super setted with cable flys
    135 x 10 + 10(not sure on weight, I just read the non-weight side of the stack on our ground 0 cable machine) x 15
    185 x 7 + 12 x 12
    205 x 4 + 135 x 8 + 12 x 12

    Incline DB Fly's supersetted with Flat DB Fly's, did these without resting after my last set of cable fly's and only took a 30 sec break between the two supersets, it may have been light but boy did it burn.
    30's x 15 + 30's x 12
    40's x 15 + 40's x 10

    Thanks for the positive comments Banshee and Natureboy. Today was a back workout with a little biceps at the end, here you go

    Deadlifts, close stance, I am used to sumo style so the switch is still a negative to how much I can pull, but I think they work the muscles much better, now that my excuse is out of the way
    135 x 8
    225 x 8
    315 x 6
    460 x 1, that is the most I have tried with this stance, felt pretty good, last week I went to 425 for 5 so I thought I would go for one good heavy rep today and back to regular reps next week

    Bent over barbell rows
    230 x 3
    250 x 3
    270 x 3
    300 x 2 + 225 x 8

    T-Bar Rows (flex fitness t-bar)
    5 45's x 8
    5 45's + 1 25 x 6, that was tough, no more set required :)

    130 x 8
    200 x 3
    250 x 3, they sucked, usually much better, so I lowered the weight
    180 x 12
    220 x 10

    DB Shrugs
    130's x 6
    130's x 8
    130's x 8

    Barbell Curls, mild cheat curls, I mainly wanted some moderately heavy negatives
    140 x 4
    150 x 4
    150 x 4 + 100 x 8 strict and really slow negatives

    DB Curls, alternating, reps are total, not per arm
    60's x 8
    65's x 8 + 35's x 12, really slow negatives on the 35's

    That's it for today, it was an ok workout but I felt really tired and unmotivated the whole time, guess that happens from time to time.

    Thought I would throw in a few pics of exactly what I look like today. I am doing a natural show on May 5th, so I will try to update my log from time to time to see how it's going, and I know you all love the superman pants.

    Thanks for the positive comments, it is always a bit scary putting pictures of yourself up. Max-ot, I weigh around 180 right now, I am 5'8".

    Back to what this is for, today was my heavy chest day and some light shoulders and triceps.

    Flat DB Press
    40's x 10
    60's x 10

    20's x 20 + 20's x 20 + front incline bench barbell raises 30 x 15 (that tri-set was done with very little rest after previous tri-set - maybe about 20 seconds)

    Pushdowns + Rope Pushdowns
    100 x 20 + 70 x 15
    120 x 15 + 70 x 15
    120 x 15 + 90 x 15

    DB Kickbacks
    20 x 15 each arm
    30 x 15 each arm + 15 x 20 each arm

    Dips - one set of 30 followed by one set of 50 pushups

    Rope crunchs, 3 sets of 20 with 160lbs

    Leg raises off of dip bar, 3 sets of 15 done directly after rope crunches

    One drop set of seated calf raises just for fun did 4 plates for 10 reps, stripped to 3 plates for 6 then to 2 plates for 3 - soleus was on fire - had to stop.

    That's it, was a fun workout, kept a quick pace after I got through chest, burned out quick on inclines like I normally do if I do flat db's before them - oh well - I expect it.
