    C-BP - 305x1, 320x1, 285x3x3
    Chins (underhand) - BWx3x6

    BP continues to feel good. This was paused and moved up really quick. Trying some occasional variations on chins. Neutral grip always feels best but trying to mix in some overhand pull-ups and underhanded chins.

    C-BP - 295x1, 310x1, 330x1 (PR), 275x3x5
    Chins (neutral) - BWx3x7
    Bent over DB Raises - 25x8, 20x8, 20x8
    DB Front/Lateral Raises- 20x3x10

    The 330 is an all-time PR and went up pretty smoothly for a 1RM so feel like there might have been another 5 lbs. in there. Will probably find out next weekend which will be first chance to test it again.

    Thanks, Ed. With the way it is going, I'm going to end up as a bro with a big upper body and stick legs! LOL.

    CGB - 225x3x8
    Cable Rows - 140x3x12
    BB Curl - 70x3x12

    Getting on plane tonight for trip to England. I'm scheduled to do three of hiking in the Lake District with a friend of mine and looking forward to it. I'm hoping the leg is okay with it and that the hiking will actually be good for recovery.

    The leg has had me pretty down. I tore it pretty good and when I first started to rehab it, I overdid it so I've been very cautious. I rolled it for just a little today and it hurt like hell. Feels like there are a bunch of adhesions. I'm going to try to get through this hiking trip and then reevaluate plan of action.

    Congrats on the PR! I'm right there with you...upper body lifts have continued to go up as my squats and deadlifts get back to previous weights. How long until you resume hamstring rehab?

    Well, this hiking trip might be therapeutic but won't do anything at the gym with it until I return, so maybe next weekend into the following week when I'm going to be home. Don't want to be too aggressive but also worried about scar tissue and adhesions. I also have an apppointment with my ortho as follow up on my left knee in May which is better but not without some pain.

    On the plane home from the UK now and thought I'd update on the hiking trip. Had a chance to spend a few days in the Lake District which is in the Northwest corner of England. Really beautiful area and had absolutely brilliant weather. Did two major hikes as follows.

    Sunday - Schafell Pike - highest peak in England - 26,809 steps. 7.6 miles. 3600 feet of climbing. 6.5 hours including stops. No view at top as we were in the clouds.
    Monday - Pillar - 28,750 steps, 9.97 miles, 3,714 feet of vertical climb, 7:10 hours.

    I was pretty pleased as I've done no lower body work or conditioning the last four weeks due to the hamstring tear. Hamstring held up well and so did left knee. Will start to look at serious rehab work in the coming week on the hamstring and make a plan.

    C-BP - 295x1, 315x1, 325x1, 275x3x5
    HLR - BWx3x12
    Air SQ's - BWx3x15
    Chins (neutral) - BWx3x7
    BB Curl - 70x3x12
    Foam Roll hamstring

    Feeling good about today in regards to hamstring. The HLR's and the air SQ's were absolutely no problem and the foam rolling did not hurt. Only did a little light rolling to see how it feels tomorrow but think I may be able to start working on scar tissue in upcoming days. BP continues to be strong and today's top single is only 5 lbs. off PR.
