Okay, today was legs, with a bit of a makeup for shoulders, which I once again cut a bit short, but some is better than none.

I was/am in one of those moods today's and for some reason got to thinking about that guy that said, I apparently lie about what I do. I was thinking about putting up a video. Still might, I'm not sure why it popped into my head, I usually discount them, not worth worrying about.

anyway

Warm ups X2 (I do these every workout, legs or not, just habit)

Leg extension
3X10

Leg press
200X10
200X20
300X10
400X20X4 sets, felt really easy, I almost went up to 500, maybe next time (with video)

Walked 2 miles to alleviate the inevitable leg soreness, the walk will generally stop it.

Standing dumbbell front raises (Vertical grip)
35X10X2 sets
40X10X1 sets

Seated dumbbell "Arnold" press. Not supposed to do these so they're light
50X10X3 sets

seated dumbbell side raises
20X10X2 sets
25X10X1 sets

Roman chair (I found I can do these again, I am surprised)
4X10

You continue to tear it up, Jo! Good to see you're healing and adding a few pounds to the bar each week.

Thanks, the healing is going well, the adding pounds, well, I'm trying my best to mix it up, change reps, change exercises where possible, and of course, add weight when I can.

I got In a little early today and got my arms workout in. The place was like a ghost town, surprisingly it made it difficult to really get going..
I moved to 5's today, just to shake things up, I've been doing 10's for a while and felt like a change was good.

Warm ups X2

Close grip bench (10" grip width)
135X20
18510
205X10
225X5
235X5X3
225X5

Pushdowns, narrow "V" handle
stackX5X5 sets

Incline lying triceps extensions
5X5 (5 sets of 5 reps), I forgot the weight..

Standing dumbbell curls
40X10
50X5
55X5
60X5X2 sets
55X5

Standing dumbbell hammer curls
45X5X2 sets
50X5X2 sets
45X5

Roman chair
4X10 reps

I don't really feel like I did much, I was sweating like crazy when I finished, and my arms do feel a bit tight...maybe tomorrow I'll be sore (I hope).

Jegs/houlders day today, that and a lot of walking...

Warm ups X2

Leg press

400X20X2 sets

Seated dumbbell side lateral raises

Chest/Back day today, while it wasn't bad, I did have a hard time getting my head in the game. Probably just the holiday lag catching up to me, but it's money in the bank either way.

Warm ups X2

Flat bench dumbbell press
60X10X2 sets
80X10
100X12 I wanted 15 but it wasn't happening today
100X10X2 sets

Flat bench dumbbell press, parallel grip
75X10
80X10X2 sets

Flat bench, barbell press
245X7X3 sets getting better, but not where I'd like it

Pulldowns, Narrow "V" handle
125X10
150X10
175X10
180X10X2 sets

Pulldowns, medium width parallel grip
180X10X3 sets

Pulldowns, wide straight bar
180X10, not feeling it anymore, stopped here

Roman chair
4X10

I'm going to switch my focus to back first next time, see how that goes. A little change up usually works well.

Man I wish I had a Lat Pull Machine!!!! When I was playing ball and training in HS and College, that was one of my favorite lifts. Trying to brainstorm how I can fit it in my tiny little workout room.

Yeah it's one of my favorites too. One way you can do a variation is to do a, more or less, reverse pushup. Lay on your back under a bar in a squat rack and pull yourself up bringing your elbows as far back as possible. I like doing those when I can't make it to the gym, or it's closed for covid

Of course there's the pullup bar (well supported) in the door way. That works well when it's strong enough.

We always called them bench pulls. After working up to higher sets and reps, weight can be stacked on your stomach to make it more difficult.
