Chest & Back:

DB Flyes - 5 X 15,12,10,10,12
Pec-Deck - 3 X 12 (constant weight)

Pulldowns - 5 X 12,12,10,8,10
Seated Rowing Machine - 5 X 12,10,10,12,15

My bad elbow is improving......I believe the DMSO is working as my wrist is now fine after several applications,and my elbow has less pain.

Decided not to do any pressing moves on chest or pullovers, until I feel my elbow is 100% pain free.......besides heavy flyes is one of my go to exercises.

Good workout !!

TRAINED ABSOLUTELY NOTHING:


I start my week with legs.........I literally crawled in the snow and ice all the way to
town.....I never went above 30 MPH..........stopped to fill my gas tank,then a fucking veritable blizzard took over with tons of show and whipping fucking winds.......this was enough to say fuck it as the weather up here in unpredictable.

Stopped at the store.....picked up food,and drove 30 MPH back home on icy roads.


Seems like the weather is gonna be worse this coming week with more snow and 6-8 degree high temp days, so Ill be training at home tomorrow unless conditions change.

I can`t do justice to a leg day at home as I simply don`t have the equipment needed to do so, but lunges,goblet squats,step-up and RDL will suffice I guess as I have no choice.

I was, and still am very enthusiastic cuz my training has been going great, but a light week might just be the ticket anyway....at any rate I won`t lose anything unless I venture out again like a dummy and wreck my car.

We`ll see what tomorrow brings.

Shoulders:

DB Laterals 6 Drop-Sets to failure
Bent-Over Laterals - 6 x 12-15
Seated DB Press - 1 Drop-Set to failure

Had to train at home again.....I`m just gonna call this a light week as I don`t have a ton of equipment and the atmosphere sucks.


I`m hoping the roads are good so I can hit legs at the gym this week as opposed to here at home.

Jan. 18th. and 19th.

Took off yesterday and today.........got a sore/scratchy throat  and feel like shit............shovelin g snow in 50 MPH winds didn`t help I`m sure.

Back to the gym on Monday even if I have to use a horse drawn sleigh to get there.......training at home sucks for me as I just have basic stuff to use.

DMSO! I haven't heard about that stuff since 1977. Does it work? I had a training partner who was always putting that stuff on his bad shoulder.

Training at home stinks if you don't have the necessary equipment. When I was a around 12 years old I told my brother I only have two light dumbbells and they are not heavy enough. He said if you think they are light you are not doing enough reps. He made a good point.

Chest & Back:

DB Flyes - 5 X 15,12,8,8,12
Seated Bench Press  Machine - 3 X 12,8,10
Pec-Deck - 2 X 15

Lat Pulldowns - 4 X 15,12,8,10
Hoist Seated Row  Machine - 4 X 12,12,10,10
Straight-Arm Pulldowns - 2 X 20,15

Tried to start chest with Smith Inclines but my  sore elbow wasn`t having it.......it`s getting better but still bothers me on some movements.

Instead I went with pre-exhausting the pecs with Flyes which worked out good.

Nice pump and burn !!

Hey Rich.....hope all is well buddy!  :)

Yes,I think the DMSO is helping in a big way.

I`m using a roll on version which makes it easy to apply.

However,I have no clue as to how much to use as it is not FDA approved,thus,I think I put on too much a few times as it irritated my skin.......burning at first,and itching afterwards.

It`s guesswork as far as dosing goes,so I`m putting on a bit less EOD as opposed to daily.........seems to be helping quite a bit.

I heard it goes right through your skin into the muscle area. Glad it's working for you. I might get some.

Yes it does.....that`s what makes the roll on version really nice, as I always heard that if you applied it with a cloth,which was always recommended, that the cloth better be a white one because if you used a red one for example,the dye from the color red would go right through your skin as DMSO is transdermal.

Roll on version = nothing touches your skin except for the applicator itself.
