I didn’t intend to workout twice today, it just kinda happened. Brenda and I finally got our schedules matched up and were set for a 2:45 shoulder workout. I was headed home for lunch about 11:30 and had to get diesel and the most convenient place to get it on the way home was right next to the Gold’s Gym South. So, I decided to go in and do a little weight work for my injured leg while I was right there. It went really well and my leg was quivering on the way back out to my truck, even though the only thing I did to the point of getting a burn was leg extensions. It’s amazing how weak that leg is, but it’s on the upswing now. Don’t anyone tell Dr. Burns that I’m doing resistance work already!
Horizontal squat machine 3 sets 15 reps
Leg extensions 4 sets 12-15 reps
Seated Leg curl 3 sets 12 reps (these were so hard on the lightest weight!)
Seated leg press machine 4 sets 15-20 reps
After lunch and a nap I met Brenda and Katie at the Golds North for shoulders. I must say that Brenda is looking fantastic! It’s been a month since her last show and 8 weeks until the next one and she still looks to be in contest shape! Katie was as cute as always, too! It was great to get to train with them again and we got a great shoulder workout.
Overhead DB Press 6 sets 15-20 reps (I’m still having trouble boosting the weights into position because of the injured leg)
DB Lateral raises 5 sets 12-15 reps
Rear Delt Machine Flys 5 sets 12-15 reps
My buddies Jerry Hermanto and David Nall showed up about the time we were finishing. I had some afternoon cancellations and was in no hurry to get back to work so I hung out and watched them do squats and leg presses. Jerry has gained 17 lbs since his show was cancelled 2 weeks ago. We were discussing (or lamenting) the phenomena of how one can eat and gain weight after a show, but not get significantly (or any) stronger. I’ve had that happen to me too! David is competing on Sept 29th. That dude is looking great! He’s tighter and a couple lbs heavier than he was 2 weeks ago! I’m including some pics that David sent me yesterday.
