    Thanks - they're probably heavier than they need to be, which I actually enjoy. If I did it over, I'd figure out a way to pack the handles, either with a dowel or tighter with sand, to prevent flexing. They've kept up great sitting around for several years, then getting use again.

    Hey! Still alive. Here's my update:

    every workout begins and ends with some club swings. great shoulder warmup.

    4/22: 12 mile bike ride, lots of hills. I get my dip station (a walker from the thrift store) out and try x 3,3.

    4/24: (SQ x 21, Side Delts x 21, Dips x 8) x 3. (EZ Curlz x 15, Hammer Curlz x 15, Tri Extends x 21) x 3.

    4/25: 5 mile hike.

    4/26: 2.6 mile walk.

    4/27: OHP x 10, Side/Rear Delts x 10) x 8. Curl Negatives with the Barbell: 5x3. (DB Tris x x15, Hammer Curlz x 10) x 5.

    4/28: (SLDL x 10, F Sqt x 10, ROws x 10, Dips x 5) x 5. (EZ Curlz x 12, Tris x 12) x 4. 2 mile walk.

    4/30: Split Squats 5x3, (SQ x 21, BTN Push Press x 5, Dips x 5) x 4, then a final set of Dips x12.

    5/01: OHP 10 x 10 Woo Hoo! That's a tonnage of 7700. (EZ Curlz x 15, Tris x 15) x 5. Supinators 20x2.

    Supinators: Load only one end of a dumbbell with 10#. Grip it normally, and while holding the elbow at 90 degrees with the elbow firmly tucked to the side, supinate and pronate the wrist. Also called Sups, because afterward, you can admire your bulging flexed forearm, turn to the person beside you, and say "s'up?"

    The Barbell now weighs 82#, The EZ Bar 42#, and the DB's are 10# asymetric.

    5/02: 16 mile bike ride to listen to a friend's jazz group play on a rooftop. pretty cool.

    5/04: (EZ GMs x 5 and Lunges x 5) x 5. (BB SLDL x 10, Rows x10) x 5. (Side Delts x 10, REar Delts x 10) x 2. (CoC grippers x 5, Supinators x 15) x 3.

    5/07: OHP 10 x 8, Side Delts 12 x 5, Rear Delts 12 x 5, Curlz 15 x 4.

    5/08: 1 Arm BB Rows 5x5, Sups 10x5, Snatch 3x11.

    Break for depression and drinking, then:

    5/18: (SQ x 10, Rows x 10) x 3. (Sups x 20, Curlz x 10, CoC x 5) x 3.

    5/19: (F Sq x 5, OHP x 10) x 3. (Sups x 20, Curlz x 10, CoC x 5) x 3.

    5/20: (Split SQ x 5, GM x 5) x 2. (Rows x 10, Tris x 10, Curlz x 10) x 3.

    A bit more depression, more drinking... Holy shit, the gym's open!

    5/27. 216# - surprising.

    SQ: 45x15, 135x5, 225x5, 275x5, 225x5, 10.
    GM 45x ..., ..., ...

    5/28. 215.4#.

    F Sqt: 45x10, 95 x 5,5,5.
    OHP: 45x15, 95 x 5, 135 x 5,5,5,5,5.
    GM: 45x 12,12,12.

    5/31. 215#.

    DL: 135x5, 225x3, 315 x 1,1,1,1,1. all doh until the last set, then hook.
    SLDL: 225 x 5,5,5.
    Rows: 135 x 8,8,10.

    6/03. 216#.

    1 mile bike there,
    OHP: 45x...,..., 95 x 5, 135 x 5, 155 x 2, 165 x 2, 175 x 1,1,1,1,1.4, 135 x 5,5,7.
    Paul Dick's Press: 45 x 6,6,6. (I don't know who this Paul guy is, but he's a real dick.)
    Lat Pulldowns: 70 x 15, 15, 15.
    1 mile bike back home, then 3 miles bike into work (the nature of which has changed to moving boxes of paper all around) and 3 miles home from work. I'm tired.
