    However, if there are you exercises that I want to incorporate, I would swap them out every other lift or so.
    I find it helpful to keep a lifting logbook so I can look back for reference/ to evaluate progress.
    Makes total sense

    First day back at it since my day of debauchery in Vegas.

    Back and tri's
    Pull ups
    rope press downs
    cable rows
    close grip BB bench
    Bent over BB rows
    pull downs (chin up grip)

    Felt strong today. Did 30 minutes of warm up cardio.

    One more week of this nontraditional split then I'm going to change it up again.

    Two days in a row, I am on a roll, lol. Went in for chest this morning and it was a good session. I started to fade a bit near the end, definitely feeling the effects of 2 weeks off. I can feel the pain creeping into my back from yesterdays session, and today's will certainly hurt.

    Treadmill 5min, stretching to warm up.

    Bench: 1 warm, 1 feel, 2 working double drop. Hit 275 on my working sets, felt good and the shoulder held up.

    Incl db: 3 working.

    Incl fly: 3 working.

    Hammer decline machine: 3 working.

    Dips: 12, 10, 8.

    Bike 5 min.

    Flexed arm hanging knee raises: 3 sets, these were tough after yesterday's back session.

    Dip machine side knee raises: 3 sets.

    Felt good today, my lungs are a little better and I am not congested, finally feeling alive again. There was a new girl in the gym at the end today, she was cute and I wanted to get a better look so I did some ab work at the end, I seem to push that little extra when a cutie is in the gym, lol. Sometimes I need that little extra boost at the end and eye candy seems to work. Going in for cardio tomorrow, need to lean up for summer and it is getting close.

    Have you tried your upright's with dumbells? One at a time?
    Behind the back shrugs are one of my favorites.

    I just did behind the back shrugs today, Kel(really isolates the posterior traps) I just didn't post it b/c I went back and forth(I will next time)...

    And the DB upright rows(was about to do them today, as it'll help w/my overall symmetry in my R side) which is very important for me to do so I do t get un proportioned... Thx for the feedback! Was just thinking of them lol

    Thx clarky!! Since we both have some shoulder issues.... I've noticed that going heavy for my presses is great... But also keeping my rep range to 12 for shoulders(accessory work) i get a better pump... Not anything over 8 reps for working sets.... You, clarky??

    I like those as well and finishing with cable shrugs (its a very strange angle and only works if you have a cable tree with quite a bit of weight)

    For a DB upright row do you keep the DB parallel to your shoulders?

    I like using the cables too, w/my shoulder it's easier to go behind w/em but it does hit them in a different fashion

    I just brace me free hand on something and go to town. You find a natural groove and you stop at about shoulder height. Piana has a video out on youtube regarding doing them with both dumbells at the same time. Try them both and see what you feel more. I just don't like the arc of movement a barbell puts me in.

    You know Kel I have noticed that when doing upright rows w/a bar or even EZ bar due to my shoulder I don't get quite the same contraction and also my back has slightly more of an arch than some(especially while performing the exercise)... So I'll have to try the one armed ones as it'll help w/my symmetry on my r side as well...

    I have never seen a cable stack with enough weight to do shrugs, I need to use quite heavy weight or I just don't feel it. I will try dbell upright rows this week.

    Agreed i feel they hurt your rotors too much with the straight bar etc you can feel the pressure they put it under.

    I do sing db upright rows really love the contraction they give.

    Tonight was chest, tired from work but pushed through.

    Started with smith machine incline press as a mixer I hate bb exercises generally as they ruin my rotors but incline smith seems not to affect them as much. 2 warm ups and one feeler with one really heavy set with a dd forced reps too.

    Then flat db pressing 2 low rep heavy sets these where tough from doing smith press confusioning the muscle.

    Then flat yates style flies supersetted with hammerstrength chest press at a high seat position to isolate the muscle with light weight. Felt great tbh chest was exploding.

    Then cardio 15 mins heavy sweat.

    Nice DCI!! I like to do incline first but it's been a good 4-6 wks so time for me to go back to flat first... But when I do incline first my weight just jumps up...nous I feel if your upper chest is built good then the rest will follow(at least in my case - but I have added more accessory work)....

    Just was in my head lol, good session big guy!!!

    Adding to my earlier post about doing legs

    Started with calves
    then extensions. Loaded up, felt really good today. Had 4 plates on, got 8 solid reps. Did another set and totally failed at 5.
    then lying ham curls
    followed by squats.

    Let me expand to the squat thing a little. I've been plagued with a bad back for years. Bad knees also. I've recently discovered front squats are MUCH easier on my back. I don't know why, but they are.
    So, I've put squats at the ends of my session, so I don't have as much weight. . And switched to front squats.

    Weight is really low, but it's increasing. I feel great being able to squat again

    Good lift tonight. Was a bit pushed for time, but still a good session. On my w/u set of WG pulldowns, back starting getting warm by about the 5th rep and was a total burn by end of first work set.

    Lower body and back stretching and 2 sets of crunches

    WG pulldown w/ o'hand grip- 2 w/u, Work-6.5,drop,1.5,drop,3.5
    CG pulldown w/ parallel grip- 1 w/u, Work- 3.5,drop,1.5,drop,3
    Straightjacket stretches
    Tbar rows-1 w/u, Work-6, drop,3.5,drop,3
    Low pulley rows w/ V-handle- 9.5,drop,3.5,drop,6.5. Long static hold.into a slow negative on last half rep. May bump the weight on these next time?
    Hyperextensions(unweighted)- 2 sets
    Deads- 1 set @ my usual w/u weight.

    Planned to get deeper into deads w/ a couple more sets but was running short on time.

    31 minutes not including stretches and crunches. Temps are decent, but I made a lot of sweat.

    I'm the same way. I need to use 4 or more plates on each side to get a good pull on traps, and I do them slowly and controlled, not jerking it up like we have all seen fools do. I couldn't do it on a stack either. I love uprights. Pull them all the way up to your adam's apple and your traps squeeze your head. Burns like a MFer but in a good way.

    Just was in my head lol, good session big guy!!!
    Cheers nach man. I dunno the last few weeks my chest seems to be lagging behind it must be the cal deficit I'm on catching up with me. I have been bad at sleeping lately very late nights and been out partying too more than I have in a long long time so that might be some of the factors I need to incoorperate.

    My body feels dull today which from my own experience is gonna be a sore few days as when it feels like this its not gonna be anything but sore lol

    Chest and back are nice and sore, but in a good way. I didn't go in for cardio, I am quite sore and my knee is still acting up, was crawling around on concrete yesterday at work. Will go in for a light easy leg session tomorrow, have to break the knee in slowly. Think it is time to go see the doc and hope they have their head out of their asses when I go.

    Put my 12lbs of chicken breast in the oven this morning to slow cook, time to head to Sam's club to restock since I am almost out. Almost time to start dropping my carbs at lunch and get back on the salad diet, the dry chicken and rice is getting old in a hurry.
