Today was back day :D I also made the mistake of getting some chinese food last night. This morning I work up feeling heavy, slow and sluggish. Still felt strong just slow.

Reverse pec dec
30 x 15
40 x 15
50 x 15
60 x 15
70 x 10
Not sure why I started with this one, I never do but it was a good way to get the blood flowing and my chest is stiff and sore from yesterday.

Standing bent over dumbbell row
60lbs x 12
70 x 10
75 x 10
80 x 8
I'm starting to really love doing dumbbell rows this way. I've always done them before on a bench but this way is kind of cool

T-bar wide grip
45lbs x 15
70 x 10
80 x 10
90 x 8
100 x 4

I'm starting to lose my grip on the T-Bar and the Dumbbell rows. I may need to invest in some straps again.

Wide grip under handed seated row
80 x 12
90 x 10
100 x 10
110 x 10
120 x 10

Close grip pulls down
90 x 10
110 x 10
120 x 10

My preworkout meal was about a cup of fresh Tangerine Juice, and a pint of Blueberries.
Post workout a ton of grapes :D

Normally today is a rest day and since this is my last day of vacation (I go back to school on Monday) I woke up early to tweak my resume. And sitting here on the computer I am starting to get motivated to do legs. So I may just head out to the gym in a few. I'll let you know what happens :D

Legs Feb 3, 2011
So I did make it to the gym after all. And was motivated to do some leg training. Legs used to be so easy for me to train and train hard, but as I get older it gets harder and not just physically but mentally as well.

Low, low squats below parallel sitting and pausing. Haven't done those in years and wanted to see what it felt like. Of course I used to do this with a lot more weight
90lbs x 2 x 3 sets
Music: John Mellencamp - Paper and fire, and The Village People - Go West

Leg press
90lbs x 10

Looks like you can bench more than your bw? You should get your numbers on the strength table!
