One-arm dumbbell press
115 x 8, 8
125 x 8, 8

Bent-over dumbbell rows
100 x 10
115 x 10
125 x 10, 10

Tricep pressdowns, curls, lat raises

Also plate pressed 10 lbs with my right arm for 3 sets of 10! Felt heavy.

I'm also feeling strain on my left bicep tendon from so much dumbbell hosting, carrying bags with that arm, and other forms of picking up my injured arm's slack. I gotta be careful. I haven't had a deload in 4 months so I'm going to do that and order some dumbbell hooks so I'm not curling up heavy weight every arm workout.

Falling behind on this. Let's pick up from last night. After squatting 360x3x5 I've been feeling run down today. Drinking on the weekend and going to work without much sleep probably has more to do with it than anything approaching overtraining, though. Sleep debts can take awhile to pay.

Mixed things up tonight as a result.

Dumbbell push press
100 x 0, 2
Whew, after the first set I figured I wouldn't be getting any but it was surprisingly light , when I managed to get my legs in kinetic synthesis with the press. On the second rep there my timing was off and I basically strict-pressed it.

Landmine press
45+10+10 x 12, 12, 12, 15
45+10+10+10 x 12

Heavy band pulldowns
10, 12, 12, 12, 12, 20, 15
Monster mini snapped and caused me to stumble.

Random stuff for my other arm throughout. Good news: curling a 5 lb plate and also doing a curl+press combo.

Saw the surgeon on Wednesday for a check up on my progress. It was a very quick inspection but he said everything looks great and to keep doing what I'm doing. Physical therapy today saw some improvements. I used a hand bike and then upgraded to a stronger band for resistance training. She asked me how heavy I'm doing my curls and when I told her 2.5 lb she said I can go a little heavier than that. She suggested 3.

Did an easy session tonight. 290 x 2 x 8 SSB squats and a final set of 15, plus some banded leg curls.

Any lift stuff for my recovering arm was between sets of the heavy work. Keeping active as per Emevas' recent Mythical Strength article.

Curling 2.5 lbs with the bad arm now. Things are moving along. Mobility is still not as good as I would expect 3 months out from surgery.
