<font color="red">11-25 Chest/Tris</font color>

Personal Note: Played flag football saturday. i threw the football way too much and tried to throw it way too far. as i type this i currently have an ice pack on my right bicep. i think i strained my bicep. Not to self: dont try to throw the football 100 yards.
i am going to lift semi-light and see how my bicep feels. if it hurts i will go home and ice, if it is tender i will lift light and deal with it, regardless i will ice when i get home.

Chest:
Flat Barbell Bench
135 x 20
135 x 20
225 x 6 (ouch, bicep hurts)
Incline Dumbbells
70 x 12
80 x 10

Cable Crossovers - weight is both sides added together

160 - 12
180 -12
Flat Bench Cable Flys - weight is both sides added together
60 x 15
80 x 12
100 x 12

Triceps:

*~*~*~*~*~*~*
SS - skull crushers w/ close grip bench (used bar from bench press) (45pounder)

I would normally go heavier but my bicep was a bit tender. i am going to ice for 2 days and possibly do legs on wednesday instead of back/bis.

it is so hard to take a week off when you have an injury. i wanted to take the week off anyway but just knowing my right bicep still hurts after 3 days off is killin me.

4 more rest days to heal.

hey man, you said on your 11/21 post that you were having 'issues' with squat form due to your height. i had similar problems, though i am only six foot, i have rather short legs, which give me an akward sense of balance when i am holding the bar on my shoulders. a few things i have found to help me with this are #1 deadlifting [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] and #2 doing squats with a 2x4 under my heels. it seems to help me center my weight better, and it allows me to bottom-out on my squats without doing them powerlifter style and having to do the splits. ps - you have an amazing physique going, a well sized chest and well defined abs are always a winner in my book, just keep at it with your leg workouts and you'll have a killer set of wheels to go along with ur chiseled upper bod.
