    Warm up - 500M row in 2:00

    Hex bar deadlift
    173kg/380lb-4,4,4, - Just starting up with the hex bar again using relatively light weights. Good News! My hamstrings didn't bother me with this DL variation; At least so far. We'll see how it goes...

    Swiss bar Bench
    125kg/275lb-5,5,5, going up in 5 pound increments now. Today felt better than last workout at 122.5kg.

    1 arm Kettle bell row
    123lb-8,8, - added 1 rep from last week. Trying to do them strict.

    DB curls
    Did a variety of weights for a good pump. May start training for strict curl competition for the fun of it. My oldest son is sort of challenging me.

    Ab work - a variety of things

    Had another good mountain bike ride as well last Tuesday. Did Half Nelson again as it is a blast. 1 hour of intense cardio on the climb up followed by 10-15 minutes of thrilling fun on the trip down. Have another flow trail to try hopefully this weekend!

    EZ bar strict curl

    Ab wheel
    Strict and slow with pause at end - 8,8,

    America - Land of the free and home of the police state. My nephew just got ticketed today in Hawaii for hiking with 3 of his friends. Court appearance required. Glad I live where I do. My kids also just did a 18K hike to Rainbow Lake in Whistler today. Had to park in over-flow parking area because of so many people hiking. Is fresh air and sunshine bad for you?

    My youngest son and I did another fun mountain bike ride tonight after I finished work. Psuedotsuga which is a fun ride and also the latin name for Douglas Fir. The trail starts a little rough and a bit technical but the bottom 3rd is where the fun is. Lots of banked corners to blast through. Had to stop for a bear too! There's lots of black diamond trails in the area as well but I prefer the easier "blue" flow type trails. Got a good hour or so of cardio on the climb as well. I'm still a fat bastard though as I'm not losing any weight.

    Again, this isn't me but a nice video of the trail.

    Shoulder is still painful. Doesn't bother me the day of working out, but really feel it the next few days. I could keep going but really need to let it heal properly. So I am eliminating all arm work until it gets better.

    The rowing machine don't seem to bother it (I think) so still doing that as a warm up.

    500M row in 2:05

    SSB squat
    125kg/275lb-4,4,4, - seemed pretty light still so I paused all the reps. Not really wanting to push anything too hard so staying with light weights.

    SSB calf raise
    80kg-17,17,

    Abs - did 3 sets of static leg/arm raise holds with only small of back touching floor.

    Tried a set of 10 light barbell rows with 90 pounds on the EZ curl bar. Felt ok, but then 10 minutes later my shoulder started throbbing. Need more time to heal apparently.
