      So I got started up again this past Monday:

      08/06/07: Monday - Legs (Quad focus)

      Front Squats
      95x10x2
      135x8x2
      145x6
      150x6

      Stationary Dumbbell Lunges
      25x10
      30x10
      40x8x2
      45x6

      It seems that the only time I need a substantial rest period between sets is for legs; anything else is not a problem. That said, rest plus the time constraint that I had before class kept this workout short, as you can see. HOWEVER... I do not know if it was the week off that did it to me, or the front squats... but I honestly felt that I had gotten into the muscle enough that day that when I did leave, I was still pleased with the day's efforts... I just felt it. It could have been the off week that left me weaker... OR, it could have been the fact that this was the first time I really led off with front squats in a seriously concentrated effort. As of today (Wednesday), I still feel it in my glutes. Quads ache going up stairs

      *08/07/07: Tuesday - Chest/Forearms

      Incline Dumbbell Press
      50x10
      60x10
      70x6
      -with-
      Incline Dumbbell Flyes
      20x10
      30x8x2

      Pushups
      12x2 (power)
      12x2 (regular)
      -with-
      High Pulley Cable Crossover
      25x10
      30x8
      40x6x2

      Flat Bench Press
      135xFailure (6)

      Forearms
      Captain of Crush
      195 lbs. tension x failure (4 right, 2 left)
      100 lbs. tension x 10x3
      140 lbs. tension x 10x2

      In an effort to work up my other most underdevloped area, I have decided to go with compound sets.

      08/08/07: Wednesday - Back

      Wide Grip Chin Up
      8x3

      Seated Cable Row (Wide Grip)
      70x10
      80x8
      100x6x2
      120x6

      Lat Pulldown (Supinated Close Grip)
      95x10
      110x10
      120x8x2
      140x6

      Weighted Hyperextensions
      25x8x2 >>I had to see it for myself, and really could not believe it, but it was true... there were no 35 lb. plates in sight!! Or maybe it was just too early in the morning for me... I guess I could have grabbed a dumbbell .

        Well, it looks like you are feeling better! Nice work with supersetting your chest movements, that's some difficult shite right there. 2 of the movements you did I absolutely despise...hyperextensions and lunges!! Seems every time I do them I end up over exerting myself and pull something.

        I noticed you are trying to build up you back. Are you looking to build more width? thickness? Seperation? Or overall?

          Thanks for the kudos on the chest work! I am willing to go that extra mile and then some for what I want!! As far as back goes, I have succeeded in bringing out some width, so now I think I need to turn my focus to thickness. The one thing I am missing for overall back development at the moment is deadlifts, but that is only because right now, I am using the school's gym, and they have some policy about no deadlifting Seperation is pretty good based on the last pictures I took, so that is really the main effort right now... thickness.

          And I despise the lunges myself, but it is a necessary evil, and one cannot expect to get anywhere by not doing the things that they do not like to do. I prefer walking lunges over stationary actually, but I have to mix it up sometimes.

            Traditional T-BAR Rows are excellent for developing lower back thickness. Do them old school by putting an olympic bar in the corner of the gym and place a "v" handle under one end of the bar...excellent excercise. Bent-over BB rows are also great for thickness if you perform them with your arms pulled in tight to your body. Seated cable rows with various grips are also good.
