Notes:
Precisely one week later, the injury has healed, bounce save for the occasional twinge. But, because I’ve been in a higher rep phase (generally 10-15) during the injury, I’ll keep this going for a few days before reintroducing some strength exercises.

SHOULDERS, BICEPS, LEGS

BICEPS (supersetted with SHOULDERS)
OVERHAND BICEPS CURL, DUMBBELL,
10kg x 15, 10; BARBELL, 20kg x 17; 25kg x 9, 8, 7

CHIN-UP, neutral grip, unweighted, with hold x 14, 8, 7, 7

CONCENTRATION CURL, 16kg x 8L-8R, 9-10, 9-9, 8-8, 7-7

LEGS (supersetted with shoulders)
SEATED HAMSTRING CURL, 55kg x 15, 12, 12, 10, 12, 12
LEG EXTENSION, 45kg x 20, 12, 16

SHOULDERS
STANDING DUMBBELL OVERHEAD PRESS, neutral grip
20kg x 8, 6, 6, 8

REVERSE PEC DECK FLYE, overhand grip cheers = PB
95kg x 12; 105kg 8, 10; 115kg x 8

UPRIGHT ROW, one-arm 16kg x10L-12R; 18kg x 6-6

CABLE BENT-OVER LATERAL RAISE
8.75 x 15, 12; 11.25 x 9

LATERAL RAISE, one arm, leaning out, 12kg x 8L-8R, 10-8; 10kg x 15-12

Duration: 80 minutes
Sets: SHOULDERS 15, BICEPS 15, LEGS 9
Notes:
For the first 45 minutes of this workout, I was joined by a man 3 years younger and 25kg heavier. He wanted to show he could do the same workout as me, using same weights. The guy’s been working out for many years – no novice. Even so, this is a difficult workout – non-stop – and I was surprised how well he kept up.
The reverse pec deck flye and cable bent-over lateral raises were a problem – the weight I used was too heavy for him. And the leaning-out lateral raises with 12kg were done with poor form.
I dislike working out with partners. But the competitive aspect – the desire to have the other guy on his knees before the end of the workout - drives you to perform to the limit.

CHEST, ABS

SUSPENDED STRAIGHT LEG RAISE x 30, 31, 30, 32, 30, 27
supersetted with the following …

SMITH 45° INCLINE BENCH PRESS,

SMITH 30° INCLINE BENCH PRESS,
85kg x 2, 1; 75kg x 6, 5; 70kg x 7, 9, 8

30° INCLINE FLYE, 24kg x 6, 6

Duration: 75 minutes
Sets: CHEST 23, affraid ABS 6
Notes:
Today’s split should have included TRAPS. But, since it’s just 8 days since the injury caused by Smith front shrugs, I gave TRAPS a miss and concentrated more than usual on CHEST, which needs plenty of work to catch up with the back development.[/color]

That's a rare answer - having to work on chest to catch up with back. Most people work most on chest & bi's & have little back or legs to speak of.

Think it’s something to do with the fact that, as a kid, I had asthma, Pete. A physio I know reckons he can tell childhood asthmatics by the chest shape. The musculature lags behind.
However, I must admit I adore back workouts, and probably perform back exercises with more enthusiasm than chest. Over time, this could also be responsible for the imbalance.

ARMS

BARBELL BICEPS CURL, overhand grip, 25kg x 14, 13, 10
superset
CABLE TRICEPS PRESS DOWN, neutral grip,
33.75kg x 11; 36.25kg x 8, 8; 33.75kg x 11 cheers = PB

BARBELL BICEPS CURL, 30kg x 8, 8, 8; 20kg x 20 cheers = PB

superset
HAMMER CURL, alternating 16kg x 6, 6, 6; 12kg x 12

VERTICAL DIPS, unweighted x 12

Duration: 60 minutes
Sets: BICEPS 16, TRICEPS 16
Notes:
Four Personal Bests, but three of these are new or recently added exercises; so it’s not as impressive as it looks. To reiterate, a PB is set when 8 reps are achieved with a new weight.

Yesterday, I began a new workout schedule. I don’t stick to specific splits for specific days of the week; too many variables in life for that. I have a four-way split, which I try complete on successive days, then take a day off, then repeat. It never works like that. The new split is as follows:
1) Shoulders, Biceps, Traps (80-90 minutes)
2) Chest, Legs (60 minutes)
3) Arms (60 minutes)
4) Back, Legs (60 minutes).

14 SEP 2009
BACK, LEGS

PULL-UP, unweighted x 10, 12, 10
Superset ~
SEATED HAMSTRING CURL,
50kg x 18; 60kg x 8; 72.5kg 6, 6, 6

SMITH BENT-OVER ROW, 65kg x 12; 70kg x 10

PULL-UP, weighted, 12kg x 8, 5, 5

BARBELL DEADLIFT, 45kg (max) x 12, 12, 12

SEATED ROW, neutral grip, 85kg x 8, 8, 9; 80kg x 9; 70kg x 15
Superset ~
LEG PRESS, 150kg x 8, and
LEG EXTENSION, 55kg x 18

Duration: 65 minutes
Sets: BACK 13, LEGS 10
Notes:
One of those days when you suspect you should have stayed in bed. The very first set – just 10 unweighted pull-ups – was so below the norm, I knew there was no way this workout would be even halfway good. Why do we get days like this??!
Not done bent-over rows for some time, so was working my way up to a respectable weight when another guy (who had to get to work) asked if he could use the machine.
The deadlifts were done with the heaviest barbell the gym has. Embarrassingly light. But it felt heavy today.
Had hoped to use some real weight on the leg press, but kept getting a stupid pain in the left knee. Misaligned legs? No. Stupid knee.[/color]

BRACHIATION: 60 seconds

Duration: 65 minutes
Sets: SHOULDERS 15, BICEPS 12, TRAPS 3
Notes:
It’s three weeks since the injury sustained while unhooking the Smith machine bar for front shrugs. As the max dumbbell weight in the gym is 42kg, I’d intended trying some heavy Smith front shrugs for the first time since the injury today … and, inevitably, some other gym rat decides to take up residence on the Smith machine. : affraid : Exciting Smith Front Shrugs comeback postponed, then. Evil or Very Mad [/color]

I usually add 20 minutes cardio Basketball onto the end of these 60-minute resistance sessions. Recently, I’m adding swimming, instead of or as well as.

Duration: 55 minutes
Sets: CHEST 10, LEGS 9
Notes:
The gym has only recently brought in 30kg+ dumbbells – now 34kg, 38kg, and 42kg. Becoming familiar with the extra weight is simple enough, provided you’re comfortable with 30kg. What isn’t simple is the extra thick handles of the new dumbbells. The thickness must be necessary – these new dumbbells are huge! affraid - but it makes controlling the dumbbells so much more difficult when you can’t grip all the way round. Must work on elongating my hands.
