Trained legs today:

Leg press 2 x 12 four plates a side. Really bent my legs. No shallow leg presses.
Dumbbell squats 2 x 12 85lbs. Kept back upright. Sank butt really low.
Glute machine 2 x 12
Lying leg curl 2 x 12 110lbs

Standing calf 2 x 12 180lbs
Seated calf 2 x 15 90lbs

Neck machine 2 sets a side on a four way neck machine

Hanging straight leg raises 2 x 22
Knee ins 1 x 23
Machine crunches 2 x 20

Spent so many days in the sun in Palm Springs and San Diego on vacation I think it took a toll on me. Drinking booze every day didn't help. At least almost every day I got cardio in. Sitting here in a stupor. I'm so shot. I'm 59. Tomorrow is a running day.

2-3 hard work sets of an exercise is enough to really get you if go hard.

I'm going to drop down to 200lbs. to shrink my waist.

I've got bursitis in my left elbow so I skipped any pulling.
Had the bursitis for awhile and can't shake it so got to rest it.
Upped the sets to 6 per ex. to get the workout to 43 minutes.

Took a weeks vacation.

Over vacation did bodyweight squats and calf raises along with isometrics for chest, shoulders, arms and hamstrings & quads.

Currently have tennis elbow (not from playing tennis) so have to work around it.  No pulling or straining the hands.

Did the same today and may continue it until my elbow gets better.

I have elbow pain from time to time. Certain tricep exercises hurt it and some don't. I usually do the ones that don't hurt.

This is on the outer side of my elbow and is tied into the forearm muscles.

Gripping anything irritates it.

Stretch your hand bending the fingers backward. Put a couple of strong rubber bands around you finger tips and practice opening your fingers. Practice a slow cadence on tricep exercises with lighter weight with a full range of motion.

 Certain tricep exercises don't bother my elbow region when it acts up. This is just me. Dips, straight bar tricep extension; D handle reverse grip pulley push downs; narrow grip bench and two hands single dumbbell with moderate weight sitting tricep extensions behind the head.

Tricep exercise that hurt like hell are skull crushers, single dumbbell behind the head extensions, rope push downs, and tricep machines. What I'm trying to say is maybe there are some exercises that won't irritate your situation.

Good advices.

The problem is right now I can't grip anything without pain and irritation.  Really limits what I can do.

Might be time to see an orthopedic surgeon and one that only does elbow down. General orthopedic surgeons are the worst. You need a specialist that figure out the problem. I know a good one in NJ but I'm sure you don't live by me. Sounds like something that needs to be fixed.

I hate to go down that road.  Will give it some rest.

I don't think anything broke but it is inflamed.

Did lots of calf work the last 3 days.

Tuesday did 45 minutes of standing calf raises.

Wednesday did supersets of Standing calf raises - Barbell curls - Tricep pushdowns.  A bunch of sets.  Later did a bunch of sets of Behind Neck Lat Pulldowns.

Thursday did Seated Calf Raises for 1/2 hour with 1 minute rests.

Calves are quite sore.

I'm doing a lot of intervals on the treadmill. At work I stand a lot. This morning I had trouble picking my cell phone off the floor. This cardio is making me really sore.

It definitely affects you when you train intensely.

1 legged calf raises superset with Back Squats of 5s and 3s to a top set.

Back squats started with empty bar for 5s and go up by 20 lbs each set of 5, a couple sets of 3s and a top set with 2 reps.
