Trained chest and bicep.  After I ran a super slow two mile on a soft treadmill. Really just a slow shuffle. Achilles isn't healed but I hope I didn't add to the damage. A couple more weeks of this I'm going to an Orthopedic surgeon for xrays and a MRI. Afraid of the results. Coming back from an Achilles operation at my age is going to be hell to come back from.

I'm ok, you're screwed up.

You need to get serious about letting the leg heal.

So far you have not.

Case in point: Riding 7 miles on mountain bike

What do you think a doctor would advise you?  

Do you think he would tell you to ride 7 miles on rough trails on a mountain bike with an injured Achilles tendon?

Would he tell you to run 2 miles on a treadmill with an injured Achilles tendon?
 
You are going to a surgeon for an MRI who might recommend surgery and a LENGTHY convalescence, yet you are not willing to take a month or two off from training to just rest.

Think about it.

Trained legs today. Went back to the barbell squat today.  Felt a little awkward since I haven't been doing them for awhile. The weight used was light.

Ran two slow miles at 9:30 pace. Used brand new running shoes that are stability rated to stop pronation.  Hit the heavy bag after as usual on cardio day.

Back day:

Pulldowns with a M.A.G bar 1 x 14 140lbs ( upright back. No lean back to make it a row. Touched chest each rep and full extension)
Seated lat cable rows 1 x 14 180lbs ( All the way out and back)
Dumbbell rows with knee on bench 1 x 12 90lbs ( Full extension and all the way up with a controlled cadence)
Hammer pulldown 1 x 13
Deadlifts 1 x 6 315lbs (I like deadlifts after lats. I'm all warmed up and prefatigued so it limits the weight used. Learn that from Yates. I know most do deadlifts first on back day)
Weighted hyper extensions 1 x 20 25lbs plate behind head.
Ab wheel roll out 1 x 25
Ab crunch machine  1 x 20 150lbs ( I know weight is meaningless from machine to machine.)

Tomorrow is delts and triceps.

Delt and triceps:

Military clean and press 1 x 9 115lbs. (all the way down. No half reps.)
Dumbbell delt laterals 1 x 14 30lbs
Machine delt laterals 1 x 12 80lbs
Rear delt machine 1 x 12 90lbs
Barbell shrugs 1 x 14 250lbs ( controlled cadence all the way up and down. I could put 315lbs like most people and do seizure partial shrugs)

Traditional tricep pushdowns 1 x 18 (stack. The stack isn't that impressive. Might be 80lbs on my friction ridden home unit)
Reverse grip single arm tricep extension 1 x 13 40lbs
Triceps machine 1 x 16 100lbs
Dips 1 x 10 bodyweight ( dug deep. So many are doing these partials. I don't get it. Bodybuilding is such bullshit. Do an exercise the hardest way to stress your muscle to adaptation. Never stroke your ego by doing an exercise the easiest way to use a big weight)

Ab coaster 1 x 41 60lbs
Ab crunch machine 1 x 22 150lbs

Ran one mile in the park and it was close to a humid 90 degrees. I completed the lifting portion in about 30 minutes. I was shot doing it so quick.

Ran two miles at 6AM before work. It was warm and I was dripping sweat.

Trained back and chest: The commercial gym's AC was broken. I noticed it was hot but never realized the AC was off. Had a really tough workout drenched in sweat. My hands were so wet even with chalk I had trouble gripping the bar for deadlifts.  At the end the owner said, I forgot to tell you the AC is out. Felt out of it most of the day after. I thought I was just having a bad workout day due to the fatigue of the weekend and two pool parties.  Thought the gym looked pretty empty.

Had one gym observation. One young guy around my size is getting ready for competition.  He looks great but not overly huge. What he has is freaky strength for someone that is around 190lbs. His last set in benching with perfect from he had 365lbs on the bar benching it like it was nothing. I've seen all the big guys with barrel chests and wide grip pushing 400lbs plus essentially pushing the bar 12 inches off their chest. This guy was pushing the bar over 24 inches off his chest. Thought the guy was a beast for his weight.

Leg after close to 8 weeks is finally getting better. Still not right but much better. I will baby it with slow runs now. I gain weight really fast without cardio.

Glad to hear your leg is improving.

Thanks, slowly but finally going in a good direction. Still can't run fast or too long.

Leg day: My membership in the commercial gym has run out. Good excuse to stay at home and train for awhile. Nursing a sore calf.

Leg Press 2 x 12 410lbs (I do something few trainers do. I fully bend my legs with the leg press. My tibia and fibula come really close to my femur. Yates got a good bend when he leg presses. I could pile on the plates and have the back board high and call it a "full" rep when my knees contact my body but that's not bending the leg. I always sacrifice weight used by making an exercise harder so I'm working the muscle hard and not stroking  my ego.)
Squats 2 x 8 225lbs-250lbs Using a light weight and sinking it. Trying to be mindful of my Achilles.
Stiff leg deads 2 x 6 205lbs
leg extension 2 x 20
Seated leg curl 2 x 15-13 reps (Used too much weight and couldn't get 15 reps on the second set)
No weight body squats 1 x 55 (sank each rep. Didn't flop down into the negative like a cross fitter. These are gold)

One dumbbell side bend 1 x 15 90lbs
Hanging straight leg raise 2 x 22
On back on floor hip raise with feet pointing toward the ceiling 1 x 25

Leg press calf 2 x 25 (slightly hurt then the pain seemed to alleviate somewhat. )
Seated calf raise 2 x 15 90lbs ( no pain with them.)
Stretched the calves out after

Neck training one set per side with a neck helmet.

Really hot in NJ.  About 95 and really humid. In my basement gym it was about 70 degrees I estimate and I was sweating like crazy. Normally the basement is cool. After the workout I floated in the pool for about an hour. I don't think I can get any darker. Starting to look weird with so much tan.  Fall will be hear soon enough and I will be pale again.  Grin

Achilles feels 85% there. Just hobbled for two months. I thought for sure I  partially tore it. Now I think it was a very minor tear but a severe inflammation response. My father and sister suffered from really bad arthritis.  I think as I age I have that severe inflammation response to injuries.

Anyway I ran two miles today.  A young guy joined me on the trail in front of me. Maybe between 21 and 25.  I tried like hell to keep up with him foolishly.  It's just my nature.  I couldn't catch him but he never got too far in front of me. At the end I looked at my time for the two miles and while I wasn't setting the world on fire I was very pleased to run sub 9 minutes miles. First time in two months I felt like I was back in the running game. Looking forward to improving but I will take it very slowly.  I don't need that damn Achilles to swell up again.

Hit the heavy bag as usual after.
