Went up on bench (easy to go up more, but I am very slow to increas from shoulder issue) and also on tricep press. Probably could have gone up on more, but am feeling a bit fragile with all the recent joint issues, so held off.

Kind of wonder a bit if my workouts might be too intense. I go circuit style through the entire thing. My cardio can take it and I'm even kind of mentally used to the exertion and the lactic acid. After doing it for months. But it is hard on my forearms. And the weights are now well more than 50% higher than when I started last summer.

Date: 04AY10
Week: NS20A1
Gym: Richmond Y

Strength: "Arms"
bench 135/135# (no pauses)
machine curls 85/85#
tricep press 190/185#
seated rows 125/125#
pec flies: 110/105#
lat straight arm pulldowns: 90/90#
straight arm, v-shaped arm raises 12.5/12.5# dbs
bicycles 26/26
rot cuff, bent arm abduction (alt L/R sides) 30/30#
Back hyperextensions, 10#
prone shoulder stabilization flies 5/5#

* Strength is done with 2 sets of 10, alternating exercises (e.g. dip/curl/dip/curl).
* Hold for a "one count" each rep at point of max effort.

Cardio: none.

Stretching (2 sets each, 30 sec count, alt L/R except calf/shin):
calves with towel, wall

Tissue work: back and calves

ankle treatment
ice, motrin, stretch

Assessment:
* Workout: curls were strong for once, but pec flies weak. I am trying to concentrate on the pec muscle when I do the motion...and it seems to make that part work harder, but overall motion strenght goes down. On curls, I'm thinking about switching to some other motion than the machine I've used so long. Somehow feel it more in my grip than my arm (although they've definitely gotten bigger...so donno.)
* Diet: On track.
* Weight: 167 (+2)

Really behind on reports. I guess the injury has thrown a monkeywrench in my diligence. Also, got some real work done.

Still avoiding leg-based work, so enforced rest

Date: 05MAY10
Gym: NA
Week/day: NS20-R1 (L1)

Cardio: none

Assessment:
* Workout: Total rest day. I did not really do any knee or ankle rehab out of various concerns/doubts. Wonder if I should add some of this back.
* Diet: Overcarbed in evening
* Weight: 164 (-1).

Biked for first time in 2 weeks. Felt OK. Little prickly in both calves. Maybe psychosomatic. Achilles tolerated it OK. Felt it when trying to soleus stretch after though.

First arms day of new 2 weeker. Went up on
*tricep press
*lat pulldowns
*back extensions
Should be able to go up on a lot more in next 2 weeks, but I have been a bit ragged and with all my fragility, just thought smarter to wait.

First day back doing legs. Tried anterior tibialis and it was sort of tolerable at 40, but felt...not pain, but danger at 50 (55 was previous). I may add it back in at 40, next day. Hamstring curls, I droped 20 pounds lighter (was strong, but I just worry the gastroc involvement). Other lifts was fine, did old amounts, not strength loss.

My regular doc reviewed the note from the temporary doc and said to do PT for my ankle. Start Tuesday.

Ankle feeling better. Cooler day for the ride today.

Trainer who does my BF challenged me to press the entire stack on the tricep press machine (270). Could not even get really held down (there is no belt, you can kind of use your quads to push your back against the seat, but that did not work...I don't think I could press it anyway. Trainer pressed it once, but could not hold himself down either.

He talked about designing a new exercise for me for glutes (maxing the machine and adding 15 pounds on, will run out of room eventually to add weights).

Adjusted the back so I move forward one notch on the leg extensions and hamstring curls. Felt a little strange, but better. less hip movement now.

Been thinking of some of the arm exercises where it is hard for me to make jumps because of increments so large percentage wise (lateral raises, etc.) Think I may start varying rep amounts as a way to make smaller step changes before changing weights.

Date: 16MAY10

hamstring
glutes
quads

Foam rolling: back and calves

Assessment:
* Workout: Good.
