    Getting stronger with the legs. Feeling good. Cut down on the shoulder stuff since I'm feeling like I went through a meat grinder. Time to talk to the PT about this problem.

    5x5 Modified Strength Training - Workout A

    Leg Press

    100lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    190lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    280lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    370lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    460lbs - 1x3 (w/u)
    550lbs - 1x2 (w/u)
    640lbs - 1x1 (w/u)
    730lbs - 1x1 (w/u)

    800lbs - 5x5 <--PR!

    Bench Press Machine (Single Arm)
    10lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    30lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    50lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    70lbs - 1x3 (w/u)

    90lbs - 5x5

    Hammer Strength Rows (Single Arm)
    45lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    90lbs - 1x5 (w/u)

    120lbs - 5x5

    DB Tricep Extensions (Single Arm)
    37.5lbs - 3x10

    Set a PR on the leg press, so that's good news! The rest felt good.

    Spent a lot of time with the PT yesterday. The consensus is that I overdid it on my last few visits. They've cut down the amount of strengthening exercises and we're concentrating on stretching for now while slowly building in the strength.

    Otherwise felt good too. I can't believe how week one side of my body is compared to the other. I've done virtually nothing with my shoulder and it's still on fire. Getting spooked a bit here...

    Been laying off the gym a little bit as the shoulder hasn't been responding well to PT and the gym. Back at it a little bit but changing up my approach. I have a snowboard trip that I'm going on in 3wks so I need to get in shape for that and also not have dead legs. Toning down the weights a bit and working a little bit on conditioning. This snowboarding workout is a 3-day/wk program that utilizes the same movements with different rest periods. Today was a 60s rest between reps. Push-ups are wall push-ups for now until shoulder can handle a little more.

    Tough workout. Feels good to be doing something that's not totally strength related. That being said, the strength work I did at the end of 2017 is paying dividends for sure!

    Lunges suck. That being said, this is the first time in YEARS that I've been able to do real lunges without pain in the knees. Looks like the strength training with heavy squats is paying dividends.

    Great workout! Felt like crap heading in this morning and really didn't feel like going. But, got it in and am happy. These lunges are leg beaters, even with only 5lbs DBs.

    Great workout. Had trouble getting out of bed Monday and Tuesday (wife's been sick so neither of us is sleeping well). Felt good today. PT session last night was brutal - still sore this AM. Looking forward to a week off next week while on my snowboard trip!
