Wes:
I've noticed you're a big fan of db pull-overs.
Do you ever incorporate any variety insofar as switching db's for a bb or even a pull-over machine?

We don`t have a pullover machine,but if we did,I`d definately use it.

As far as BB Pullovers go,haven`t done them in ages........I`ll have to give them a shot next week,I remember really liking them using an EZ-Curl Bar,eons ago though.

How long have you had that pain?
Might be a baker's cyst.

12/8/11

Shoulders,Biceps/Triceps:

Shoulders:
Seated Dumbell Press:
40-12
50-10
50-10
50-10

I used to go up to the 80`s on these years ago for 5-6 reps or so,but I always got that nagging clicking in my shoulders,plus I was more concerned about moving the weight from Point A to Point B. instead of taxing the delts.

I feel these much better going lighter using a full range of motion (touching my delts at the bottom, and locking out at the top),with short rest periods.


Behind The Back Laterals:
20-15
30-12
40-10
25-15

Triple Drop-Set:
Behind The Back Laterals:
20-8,drop to 17.5-8,drop to 15 for 9 totaling 25 reps
15-10,drop to 12.5-10,drop to 7.5-for 10 more

Lying Rear Delt Raises:
15-20
20-15
20-15
20-12

I do these lying face down on an incline bench,with thumbs facing each other.......great exercise!

Face-Pulls:
1 x 25 with 4 plates

Biceps/Triceps

Super-Set # 1:
{Seated Alternate Dumbell Curls:
30-12
40-10
50-10
30-12
{Skullcrushers:
70-15
90-10
90-10
70-15

Super-Set # 2:
{Barbell Curls:
80-10
100-10
65-12
{Cable French Press:
6 plates-15
7 plates-12
5 plates-15

Super-Set # 3:
{Cybex Preacher Curls:
3 X 12 plus 5 half reps from the bottom on each set with 4 + 1/2 plates
{Pressdowns:
6 plates-25
5 plates-30
4 plates-35

Awesome workout!!

Todays Meals:

They're nothing terrible.
We see them rather often in the lab.

And - not to scare you - but, if you feel a bulge behind your knee, you really should have it looked at.
There's a small possibility it may be a popliteal arterial aneurysm, particularly if you have any kind of aneurysm-related history in your family.

Common sites for aneurysms to develop are in the abdominal aorta and...the artery that runs behind your knee.

Thanks for the info Monty,but there is no bulge,just a bit of pain.....just enough to be annoying.

I think it`s because I was going really heavy on seated leg curls (16-17 plates.....heavy for me anyway).

I`ll wait a bit longer and if it persists,I`ll definitely go see the doctor about it.
