Well another session today. Was hoping to give front squats a crack as my back had felt pretty good yesterday but this morning it had that all too familiar dull ache, so rather than risk anything even with a light set I resorted to the leg press again!
Single Leg Press
Worked up to a set at 165kg (365lb) and then a burn set of 30 reps at 450lb (both legs together)
Seated Calf Press
Full stack of 450lb for 3 sets.
Superset leg ex and leg curl full stack for both exercises for 3 sets
In the absence of deads and lunges thought I'd do some abductor moves for a laugh.
Inner and outer abductor machine superset
Full stack of 225lb for 2 sets of 12
Rotator Cuff Work
Giant set: B/Over Raises/Side Laterals/Front Raises
Worked up to main set of 40lb for sets of 10
Incline Hanging Spider Curl
Worked up to main set of 85lb - really hard with arms hanging.
Lying Cable Curl
Worked up to main set of 180lb for 6 - great exercise. Strict form cos of back against floor and constant tension throughout the movement.
Seated Chest Press
Up to a main set of 205lb. - I know one reason why this machine is so hard - the handles start right back so it's like starting your bench with the bar on your chest and not having a chance to adjust to the weight.
Anyway - 12 exercises and done in 55 mins so pretty pleased. Really can't wait to get back to the big lifts and presses though. Hope it isn't too long!
I'll start writing my log up properly with weight, reps and sets when I'm training back to normal again.
