Back and the Saddle again...

HA! Now that's a bad word play if I ever saw one.  :P

Since I've been cracking 'reel time' for 12 hours a day for a week, that's about as whitey and as cheezy as it's gonna get in this post.

Missed the workout this morning as I was up til 4 trying to figure out why Maya wouldn't open after a crash...what a headache.  Lost a couple hours of work to a corrupted file also, but hey, I'm not talking to anyone who's never had that issue before right?  Werd.

That just means I have to combine 3 days plans into 2...easy peazy lemon squeezey.  

So onto Back and the Saddle -

Last day of February saw some back work:

Bent Over Dumbbell Rows
85 x 10  65 x 10  75 x 10
105 x 8  90 x 8  75 x 8 - finished this set pretty winded - who'd a thunk 24 reps would tucker a boy out?
115 x 8  95 x 8  75 x 8 - also winded but not as bad

Seated Wide Grip Rows - vertical grip on the T-Bar
135 x 10  105 x 10  75 x 10
150 x 8  120 x 8  90 x 8
165 x 8  135 x 8  105 x 8

Overhead Cross-downs
17.5 x 12  12.5 x 12  7.5 x 12
22.5 x 8  17.5 x 8  12.5 x 8
27.5 x 8  22.5 x 8  17.5 x 8

Followed by the Legs on the 1st of March:

Hip Sled (I much prefer to hit the rack or leg press but drop sets are really tough to do correctly without 2 spotters to pull weights)
170 x 15  130 x 15  90 x 15
230 x 15  190 x 15  150 x 15
350 x 15  310 x 12  270 x 12 - I wore the wrong shoes as my feet were cramping like crazy on this set

Leg Curls
135 x 15  105 x 15  75 x 15
175 x 12  145 x 12  115 x 12
205 x 10 175 x 10  145 x 10

Leg Extensions
145 x 15  115 x 15  85 x 15
190 x 12  160 x 12  130 x 12
220 x 10  190 x 8  160 x 8

I do love polishing off a hard workout with extensions as there nothing like the fiery burn of skin stretched to the breaking point by swollen quads!
