Back In The Saddle

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on February 7, 2006

I got back into the gym today. I was having a bit of back stiffness still but no pain or wekaness so I headed to the gym. This weorkout was meant to be a rehab workout mostly. I wanted to see where my back would let me go. I turns out, everywhere and I feel better than I have in like two weeks.

135 X 5
185 X 5
225 X 5
275 X 5
315 X 5
365 X 3

I decided to try bench. I haven’t done it in a while. I really didn’t have it in me today. Most of it, I think, was in my wrist which I will explain later.
135 X 8
185 X 8
225 X 8
275 X 3

Calf raises
3 X 10 X 425

Lock outs, just loading the a dquat bar up and standing with it while I count to thirty

High rack pulls – this was the last part of my grip workout for the day (I’ll cover the earlier stuff later). It was like 1/16 of a dealift and hold while counting to thirty, double overhand.
3 X 315

The first part of my grip workout and the reason why my wrist are sore right now.
5″ 3/16 Folding style
9″ 1/4 DU
8″ 1/4 DU
7 1/2″ 1/4 DU

This is pretty much where I am at right now on bending.

Lever 10lb sledge to the nose from about 25″ three times per arm.
block juggle:
I forgot to mention earlier that I now have a 35 lb (half of a 70lb dumbell) hex head block weight. I could pick Lukes up but can’t seem to get mine, I think his had a little chalk on it. I can almost get mine slick. I did a little tossing it hand to hand. Not far and I was catching it underhand rather than snatching it over hand like Brookfield but it put some strain on the wrists too.

Anyway that was my lifitng day. I didn’t do a ton of lifting but my back feels great and I love that.
