Ah Sunday dinner....I fixed a corned beef with cabbage, carrots and potatoes. It was so tasty, my wife ate too much and was up sick all night as a result. I've got to stop cooking!
I only ever eat a big Dinner on a Sunday. I am out and about every Day and so is my Wife. my two sons are big enough now and cook for themselves. still Sunday is nice as we sit together. I am afraid i canīt cook very well.. Grin

Sorry to hear it Steve. I think getting heat to the area is good and also deep tissue massage . Stretching too I am told ..never had this myself. Getting heat to it will increase blood flow..and massage .

I am no computer wiz, but this is one of those times when I wish I lived closer to you. My instincts and computer experience suggests that this is just an easily worked through glitch. I would like nothing better than to fix it for you, but to do that I would have to be there fooling around with your laptop.

so today is a rest day but i am already thinking about my arm workout tomorrow. I think i will include seated Barbell curls which you do not see often. I agree with the video when he talks of the PRIMARY mover in the exercise. always be a thinking trainer...

this morning i felt a bit rough as i drunk a few cold Warsteiner Beers last night. Just felt the urge so they went down smooth Grin used to call it "Wobbly" in the Army because it does blow your head off... so this morning i was out running with my friend and we run past the new Gym which has opend near me. we were nearly finished our run so we just popped in the Gym for a look. cut a long story short i ended up doing my leg workout in there ..LOL.

I started with some abs. i did 3x 15 rope crunches and 3x30 leg raises.

I did leg extension 3x15 superset with
seated leg press 3x15

Seated leg curls 3x15 superset with
hyperextensions on a 45% bench 3x15
this superset really hit my Hams in a positive way.

calf raises i did on the seated leg press machine 5x15-20 (just going to failure and i lost count) Grin

did legs no squatting trying to keep weight of neck,,some pain/numbness still but a bit better,advil,heat,patches ,,went to gym with some vigor

quads leg pressed was comfortable worked up to 7 plates after 4 sets leading up to and dropped to 5 plates for extra 10 after hiiting 8 reps with 7,,
walking lunges 3 x 40lbs dbells,,
extensions x4 worked up to 250 all 12 rep sets
hams did seated situp leg curls x4
seated calf raise x4

so all in all close to my usual not quite but ok..

then i spent around 45 minutes doing
side laterals  x2
front raise x2
tri cep pushdowns x2
dip tri machine x2
ab machine x3
roman chair x3
just for pump all around...

now chest is weird i guess all back and shoulder get pressed together i feel off just off
cable crossovers x3 but l/s feels off mechanically
chest press x3 seated just struggle to get going l/s
seated hammer lower press 1 plate per side single arm is all i could do i usually do 3 plates per side together so i'm weak pressing

no back work just stretched so maybe back and shoulder and chest pressing is going to be the test ,,i'll live ,,,i;m going to do do total body workouts till i recover it could be a week or weeks who knows,,haven't ruled out 'dr' 'donny'....

2 pics ,,,my upper body felt flattish less pumped looking feel small,,abs ripped tho,,,

LOL @ dr donny...wish i had the brains. Good to see you are back into some training Steve. Just do what you can and donīt rush things. You will not shrink in 2 weeks infact the rest will do you good. Good idea to just do a few main exercises that cause no pain and help with blood flow. Itīs hard but better to be careful than to carry an injury for weeks or even Months. Today i will go for a cycle. itīs really an icy wind but the there is some sun too.

Are you a so called type A personality? Why do Sundays bore you? Like you posted to njflex, an occasional break can be a good thing.

Incidentally, the weather in Oregon has turned unseasonably cold in the past week. I am hoping to over seed my lawn to get it nice and lush for summer. Can't do that until the daytime temperatures consistently reach 60°. At this point that looks like it is almost a month out.

I am routinely doing stretches and core building exercises to help with the degenerative disk caused sciatica. It is gradually getting better. Also, I am back on testosterone cypionate to treat really low total testosterone levels, which recent labs indicated were at 200. I doubt a 200mg injection every other week will make much difference, but we'll see. I also started taking Welbutrin XL again, using up an old prescription to see if it helps with what I suspect is depression. I am still sleeping far too many hours each night. Maybe these meds take awhile to have a positive effect.

Enjoy your Sunday. Try relaxing.

You always seem to be busy, whether physically or mentally. You mentioned that you were bored because it was Sunday, suggesting to me that if you are not active you get bored. These features are common in people with type A personalities. Type A personalities often find it difficult to relax. Fortunately, you seem like a genuinely nice person. Many type A folks are total jerks.

Quote
Type A

The theory describes a Type A individual as ambitious, rigidly organized, highly status conscious, can be sensitive, care for other people, are truthful, impatient, always try to help others, take on more than they can handle, want other people to get to the point, proactive, and obsessed with time management. People with Type A personalities are often high-achieving "workaholics" who multi-task, push themselves with deadlines, and hate both delays and ambivalence.

In his 1996 book, Type A Behavior: Its Diagnosis and Treatment, Friedman suggests that Type A behavior is expressed in three major symptoms: free-floating hostility, which can be triggered by even minor incidents; time urgency and impatience, which causes irritation and exasperation usually described as being "short-fused"; and a competitive drive, which causes stress and an achievement-driven mentality. The first of these symptoms is believed to be covert and therefore less observable, while the other two are more overt.

Type B

The theory describes Type B individuals as a contrast to those with Type A personalities. People with Type B personality by definition generally live at a lower stress level and typically work steadily, enjoying achievement but not becoming stressed when they are not achieved. When faced with competition, they do not mind losing and either enjoy the game or back down. They may be creative and enjoy exploring ideas and concepts. They are often reflective, thinking about the outer and inner worlds. Furthermore, Type B personalities may have a poor sense of time schedule and can be predominantly right-brained thinkers.

Understand that this is just one definition of type A and type B personalities. It would be unusual for someone to have all the features of just one personality type. Most of us are a combination of the two. Also people change over time. I was more of a type A personality when I was younger then I am today.
