Two weeks ago I took a scheduled week off as the Uni gym would be closed for Thanksgiving on Thurs. and Fri. anyway so I figured it would be a great time to give my sore wrist a chance to rest a bit......PLUS,I hadn`t missed a training day in a long time.

Anyway,all was well with this so I figured I`d hit the gym the following Monday (last week).....well I had serious gastro issues that pop up every few months............couldn`t leave the house .......stayed in close proximity to the bathroom.

Had this for years as I had Colitis once all of a sudden out of nowhere, and lost 40 pounds........I`m a small guy so losing 40 pounds was quite the fucking shock.... I thought I was gonna buy the farm,but as suddenly as it came,it left.....but it took 40 pounds with in........then my out of the blue my Gall Bladder issues (glad I never got the surgery.....fucking quacks).........long story short cuz I`m a rambling fool, is that I used moderate weight today and decreased volume since its been 2 weeks since I`ve trained......but I trained hard and at a good pace.


It felt great to get back in there.......feeling OK again and very enthusiastic.

Thanks to Matt C. for typing this little missive up for me.
LOL  ;D

I`m just trying to get the initial soreness going them gone, so I can crank it back up to my normal volume with heavier poundages.

All in all,a damn good workout such as it was.

When you say you are doing 4 X 20,12,12,15, Are you adding weight then taking it off for the final set or are you using the same weight for all four sets?

Pyramiding up,then back down on the last set.

I like higher reps on the initial set or two,as I don`t want to get injured.

I do a lot of warming up these days that I never ever bothered to do in the past.

Seated Leg Curls - 5 sets of -  20,12,12,10,15

Leg Press Calf Extensions - 5 sets to failure plus stretching and holds


Increasing my volume after my time off.

FUCKING LEGS ARE SHOT.........GREAT WORKOUT!!

As I said in an earlier post I usually train legs on Mondays and do not train on weekends.....but today and tomorrow (Sun.) will be in the 50 degree range and then on Monday it`s back into the 20`s with snow......I hate driving in that shit cuz this towns plowing sucks....cheap bastards.

I can`t really train legs well at home due to a lack of equipment so it was legs today,chest & back tomorrow at the gym.....a day or two of rest, and if the weather sucks after that, I can get a great delt and arm workout at home.

So no missed workouts!!  ;)

Good fucking thinking for an old guy huh?
