    Cool stuff. I hate the OR in general and never did an anesthesia rotation but I like the general ideas of it.

    So I went to the gym today with the intention of doing back and chest work; I started deadlifting and was planning to do 335 x 5 x 5 nice and easily but someone else wanted to work in and he was doing 365 so I decided to do 365 as well. He also did his sets right after I did mine and I didn't want to hold him up so instead of resting my normal 4-5 minutes I rested like 1.5-2 minutes and did 365 x 5 x 5. This was great but it completely wore me out and I'm going to feel it the next couple of days. After this I worked up to a BW + 115 weighted dip and called it a day.

    So overall, I'm very happy with this; I've never deadlifted in my life with this little rest between sets and I already feel sore/fatigued in my quads/glutes/back. Gonna be fun to see how I feel tomorrow.

    Had a quick leg workout today

    Front squats:
    - warm up to 265 x 1
    - 185 x 3 x 7 with ~2 minutes rest between sets. Then my legs/knees were wobbly and felt weird so I stopped the squats there. They felt good.

    Glute ham raises:
    3 x 10

    One legged leg extensions:
    warmup
    170 x 3

    Still getting back into it. I want to try higher rep sets for a bit while resting 3 days between leg workouts and see if this will preserve my joints throughout this training cycle.

    Great job.
    Thank you. Thankfully I go to a fairly strong/serious gym so there are a lot of strong guys. That said, I have not seen anyone else there do weighted pullups with 3 plates like I can.

    Did a quick cardio and ab workout today. Still getting over the lingering effects of the cold I had. Hopefully I can start hitting cardio hard again soon.

    Yesterday I did shoulder and arm work that's not worth posting. Did dumbbell shoulder presses up to 50x7, curls up to 50x4, and overhead extensions with 40x5.

    Today I went in with the intention to squat:

    Front squats:
    warmup
    225 x 5

    Back squats:
    warmup
    275 x 1 with a 3 second pause

    The 225x5 caused my right hamstring/knee insertion site to act up. I've never felt this type of "injury" before. It's not actually injured, just something about my form today caused it to feel weird. I was strong enough to do more reps but called it there. I need to do more back squats to get back into the groove of things. I was leaning forward a lot with the 275 x 1.

    Anyways, at this point I was pretty angry about having to cut the front squats short and I found out today that tomorrow I am working daytime and evening hours (meaning no gym tomorrow) so I decided to deadlift:

    Deadlifts:
    warmup
    405 x 5 x 5

    This matches a PR for me, but today I weighed 158 and last time I did this I was close to 170. I pushed myself harder with these sets than I have with any other workout in my life. I actually had to grind up the last two reps of the last set, and prior to the very last rep I took 3 full breaths (I rarely even take two full breaths). I did not tear off any callouses but my hands feel destroyed. My traps felt really sore after the second set. I got a fairly bad headaches in the left posterior aspect of my scalp descending to my left neck after the very last set that I assume is exertion-related and has since gone away. I will feel terrible tomorrow, but I'm extremely happy with myself for gutting through this. If I end up matching my PR deadlift of 550 but do it while weighing 157, that would be a 3.5x bodyweight deadlift, which would be really cool. We'll see if I get there. Can't wait to see how my body feels when I wake up.

    Got up early today so had a morning workout. I was dubious about doing it as I'm still recovering from the deadlifts but I wanted to lift.

    Weighted Pullups:
    warmup
    BW + 115 x 4 x 2
    BW + 90 x 3

    Weighted Hammer grip pullups with rotating handle (I start pronated and finish in a hammer position):
    BW + 70 x 4
    BW + 45 x 5

    Weighted dips:
    warmup
    BW + 115 x 2
    BW + 90 x 3 x 3
    BW + 70 x 3
    BW + 45 x 4
    BW + 25 x 5

    I supersetted the above. On the first set with dips I was valsalving (sp?) hard. When I did the deadlifts two days ago I developed a bit of an exertion headache on the very last rep and then this resurfaced with this first heavy set of dips. Thankfully by focusing more on breathing throughout the rest of the workout I was able to keep this at bay and get through it. With the pullups my grip was a bit weak due to hand pain; even though for most of the sets I used a completely smooth bar with no knurling my hands were still feeling the effects of the deadlifts. These all felt good.

    Incline dumbbell bench press:
    35 x 10
    60 x 7

    Dumbbell rows:
    50 x 10
    75 x 10

    Then I did 16 minutes of elliptical until the machine said I burned 500 kcals (as I've stated before I think it overestimates by a factor of 3).

    My hands have lots of cuts on them and feel destroyed; hopefully they'll heal more quickly. I'm just starting to get back into grip work but will wait until they heal some more.

    After the squats two days ago I did cardio later in the day and got to 500 kcal on the elliptical in 12:59. I did another 500 kcal yesterday. Today I lifted:

    Incline dumbbell bench press:
    warmup
    85 x 6
    85 x 5
    85 x 3
    65 x 8
    65 x 7

    Dumbbell rows:
    warmup
    100 x 9
    100 x 7
    100 x 7
    100 x 6
    100 x 7

    I supersetted the above. Everything felt good. With rows I can always use more momentum to do more reps so I try to stop before I have to use momentum at all but there's definitely some wiggle room there.

    Weighted pullups and weighted dips supersetted:
    warmup
    BW + 90 x 3
    BW + 70 x 5
    BW + 45 x 6
    BW + 25 x 8
    BW x 9

    These felt good too.

    I tried to do cardio afterwards but my legs were no having it. I'll squat tomorrow; we'll see how it goes.

    Had a nice leg workout today:

    Front squats with 3 second pauses:
    warmup
    255 x 6 x 3

    I've done 245 x 8 x 3 and last workout I did 225 x 8 x 3. The 5th set was hard and my form started breaking down on the last rep on the 6th set so I called it there. This is still a PR with 255. Next time knees-permitting I'll go up to 265 most likely.

    One-legged leg extensions:
    warmup
    170 x 7
    170 x 2 x 6

    These felt good.

    Assisted glute-ham raises:
    3 x 10

    These felt good

    Leg press:
    100 x 20
    160 x 20
    190 x 20

    Within each set I didn't rest and did 20 reps straight. Really burned my glutes (especially the outer portion) at the end of each set. I think I'll keep going up with this.

    Overall very nice workout. Weighed 156 this morning, so down 6 pounds or so from when I finished my recent break. My waist is a lot smaller in the mirror; at 162 I was not happy with how I looked but I'm very pleased with my physique now. As long as I continue having good workouts I'll keep cutting a bit as I'm losing predominantly fat without question but I don't think it will be long before I start bulking (I feel I'm lean enough to bulk now).

    Thank you.

    I did cardio this morning (machine said 550 kcal), and then I worked out this evening.

    Dumbbell shoulder presses:
    50 x 8
    50 x 5
    50 x 3
    40 x 8
    40 x 6

    I've gotten a lot weaker on these; this is due to not training them. Strength should come back quickly.

    Dumbbell curls:
    50 x 4
    50 x 3
    50 x 3
    40 x 6
    40 x 5

    Lateral raises:
    25 x 5
    25 x 4
    20 x 8

    Reverse fly with pulleys:
    2 x 7
    2 x 6
    1 x 8

    Low pulley curls:
    6 x 2
    5 x 6
    5 x 5

    Two armed overhead dumbbell extension:
    35 x 7
    35 x 5
    35 x 3
    30 x 7
    30 x 5

    Tricep pushdowns:
    4 x 2
    3 x 6
    3 x 5

    Then I did cardio for 250 kcal on the machine.

    First legit shoulder/arm training session in a while; hopefully I can keep this up. I care about my shoulders but I don't care about my arms in the slightest so it is hard for me to motivate myself to do this.

    I want to apologize to all for not logging my previous 4 workouts. They were all good, I was just too lazy to type them up.

    Anyways, had another good session tonight.

    High bar squats with 3 second pause:
    BW x 3
    45 x 3
    135 x 3
    185 x 3
    225 x 1
    255 x 1
    275 x 1
    295 x 1
    305 x 1
    315 x 1

    First time doing 3 plates in awhile. Felt good; I had a bit more in me but didn't want to push it.

    High bar squats without a pause:
    275 x 5
    275 x 3
    255 x 5
    255 x 3
    225 x 5

    I could have gutted out 1 or 2 more on the first set of 275 but again this is my first time pushing myself on these in awhile and I didn't want to overdo it.

    Paused front squats:
    135 x 1
    185 x 1
    225 x 1
    255 x 1
    275 x 1
    285 x 1

    These all felt really good; I probably had 295 in me but my form would have been iffy.

    Step ups:
    80 (meaning two 40 pound dumbbells) x 5 each leg
    120 x 5
    140 x 5

    Leg press:
    warmup
    310 x 12
    325 x 6

    Leg extensions:
    warmup
    190 x 5/5 (left leg/right leg)
    190 x 5/4
    170 x 8/8

    Glute ham raises (on an actual bench as my gym purchased one):
    3 + 2 (3 unassisted as low/straight as I could go and then 2 with assistance)
    2 + 3
    2 + 3

    Then I did ~23 minutes cardio and the elliptical said 800 kcal (as always, I think this overestimated by a factor of 3).

    Overall a very nice workout. Upper body stuff coming tomorrow.

    I've determined an accurate way to convert machine cals to real calories: take the square root of it (jk) For calories burned, I use 1/2 cal/lb-of-bw for walking which for a brisk walk that's going to be ~320 calories/hour (assumes ~15 min/mile or 4 mph) for you. Jogging will net you a greater burn PER MILE (and much greater per unit of time) due to having to lift your CG up then down as you run.

    At some point I may try to more rigorously determine just how many calories I'm burning. May be a fun experiment.

    Had a nice workout today:

    Military presses:
    warmup
    135 x 2 x 2
    115 x 8 x 3

    Last workout I did 135 x 4 so I felt weaker today but I just need to increase my shoulder pressing volume and go from there.

    One armed pulldowns:
    warmup
    150 x 1
    145 x 3
    145 x 2
    135 x 5
    135 x 4
    125 x 4

    This felt good. I'm definitely training to do a one armed pullup. I'll get there...

    Incline dumbbell bench press:
    warmup
    70 x 4
    65 x 5
    60 x 6
    55 x 7
    50 x 8
    45 x 9

    Seated machine rows:
    warmup
    120 x 4
    110 x 6
    100 x 8
    90 x 10

    Done there. I desperately need to get my shoulder pressing strength up. I use a much fuller range of motion than most so I don't know what this would translate to if I were to use a more normal range of motion (same with incline presses) but regardless I need to get stronger. One armed pullup training is coming along nicely.

    I also did elliptical this morning and it said I burned 950 kcal in 28 minutes.

    My legs are quite sore/fatigued from yesterday; I may do cardio tomorrow morning if able. Otherwise I will probably take tomorrow off and then on Friday I will get my cholesterol levels checked with a health assessment (by doing this I'll get $240 off my health insurance for the year).

    Also, I found out today I passed Step 3. I actually got an above average score which surprised me as I'm in peds and the test covered mostly adult stuff. Feels really nice to not have to retain adult information anymore.

    Anyways, I intend to celebrate passing Step 3 on Friday; if all goes well I'll have a really nice deadlifting session.

    I just had a biometric screening done. In February of 2016 my cholesterol numbers were:

    Total = 183
    HDL = 66
    Triglycerides = 27
    LDL = 112
    Total/HDL ratio = 2.8
    BP was around 124/84

    At that time I weighed roughly 169 pounds. Since then I have lost 10-15 pounds of fat and started doing significant cardio. Today my numbers were:

    Total = 139
    HDL = 69
    Triglycerides <50
    LDL could not be calculated because triglycerides were too low, but it is between 60 and 70 (60 if triglycerides = 50 and 70 if triglycerides = 0).
    Total/HDL ratio =2.0
    BP = 116/80

    So, nice improvements all around. If all goes well, I will have a nice deadlifting session later today to celebrate.

    That's awesome. I've read that the Total/HDL ratio is 5 for "average" risk, 3.4 for "half the average risk," and lower being EVEN better. My ratio has been varying from between 2.3 to 2.6 over the last few years, so you have me beat

    Yeah, I'm quite happy with it. Some history of heart disease on my Dad's side of the family. Shows to me how impactful a healthy lifestyle can be.

    Anyways, i tried to do deadlifts that night and my left lumbar back was not feeling it. Wasn't injured but felt quite sore/painful as I warmed up. So I took the weekend off and squatted tonight.

    3 second paused high bar back squats:
    warmup
    325 x 1
    275 x 3 x 3
    275 x 1

    3 second paused front squats
    warmup
    255 x 1

    That's it. Mid upper back was feeling it on all reps and really feeling it on the 255 x 1 with the front squat so I called it there. Form was solid though. Left lower back was not bothering me during it, but now ~1 hour later it is acting up a bit, so I'm guessing the squats are impacting me. I do not know why this is happening or why it is asymmetric, but I am not concerned about it. I think my body just has to get used to doing back squats again. In the mean time I need to rest sufficiently between sessions.

    Had a nice session today:

    Military press:
    warmup
    135 x 2
    115 x 6
    115 x 4, 4
    95 x 6, 4

    Still working on finding a good groove with these and having them feel more naturally. I think I should stick to higher rep sets.

    One armed pulldowns:
    warmup
    160 x 1
    150 x 2
    140 x 3

    At 160 it almost supports my full weight; I'm somewhere between 160 and 170 on the machine. This means my strength is just about where it needs to be for a one armed chinup in theory.

    Weighted dips:
    warmup
    115 x 1 with a 3 second pause
    BW x 15
    BW x 10

    My elbows/arms were not happy after the 115 so I stopped there with the weight

    Weighted pullups:
    warmup
    BW + 115 x 1
    BW + 90 x 2

    I was definitely fatigued from the pulldowns. Arms also weren't happy as I did these alternating with the dips.

    Incline dumbbell bench press:
    warmup
    70 x 4
    65 x 5

    I used a bench I normally don't use; felt ok but not a stable bench and more of an incline than usual for me.

    Machine rows:
    warmup
    120 x 6
    100 x 8
    90 x 10
    90 x 10

    Overall happy with this. I really, really, really want to be able to do a one armed pullup.

    I got in a short full body workout on Thursday and then traveled over the weekend. Back at it today.

    Back squats:
    warmup
    275 x 1 with a 3 second pause
    225 x 10
    225 x 3 x 6

    And done, lol. My work capacity is pathetic. First time I've done 225 x 10 high bar and that took a ton out of my lower back. I'm gonna stick with 225 for a while and see if I can increase the reps a good amount. Form felt very solid.

    Nice session today:

    Military press:
    warmup
    115 x 2 x 6
    115 x 2 x 5
    115 x 4

    These felt fine; I may try them with a suicide grip next time as I'm curious if that will make a difference.

    One armed pulldowns:
    warmup
    160 x 2
    150 x 3
    140 x 4
    130 x 5
    120 x 6

    This was a PR; my bodyweight is between the 160 and 170 so I think I'm legit getting closed to a one armed chinup.

    Weighted dips:
    warmup
    75 x 2 x 4
    75 x 3
    45 x 4

    I've gotten weaker on these in part because I haven't done them in awhile and in part because I did the military presses first, but nonetheless these felt good.

    Seated rows:
    warmup
    100 x 8/7/10/10

    The last two sets these finally clicked for me regarding my form and using a good amount of acceleration. Felt good.

    I'll either take tomorrow off and do cardio or if my legs feel great I may squat again. We'll see.

    So I just tried to do a leg workout and it was not pleasant:

    Back squats:
    warmup
    295 x 1 with a 3 second pause - this was harder than it should be but felt solid
    225 x 4 - I was having a bit of knee pain and this was harder than it should have been.

    Front squats:
    185 x 1 with a 3 second pause - this felt good

    Then shortly after doing the 185 I developed right knee pain at the medial condyle of my tibia, so I stopped. I'm confident the pain will go away quickly.


    But this is frustrating, and I'm tired of spinning my wheels with my legs.


    So, new plan (for lower body). I will alternate back squat and front squat days (assistance work can be similar on both days). I will do all reps with a pause but I'll make it a brief pause so I can do higher rep sets without getting too winded to be productive. I will do 5 sets starting with 135 pounds and go from there. I will do all sets essentially to failure (or until my form breaks down, whichever comes first). When I can do at least 10 reps on all 5 sets, I will increase the weight by 10 pounds for the next workout. If I get knee pain doing this strategy I will be really irritated. It will be awhile but hopefully I can make some solid progress doing this.

    Had a nice workout this morning.

    Single-armed pulldowns:
    -warmup
    170 x 1/0.5 (right arm/left arm)
    160 x 2/2
    150 x 1.5/2
    140 x 3/3
    130 x 4/4

    170 is more than my weight so I should theoretically be able to do a one-armed chinup with my right arm. I'm gonna keep working on this; I'd like to do a few solid reps at this weight with each arm before attempting them.

    Military press:
    warmup
    115 x 8, 6, 5, 4, 4

    2 rep PR for me, which I will take happily

    Machine rows:
    warmup
    120 x 10, 10, 7
    100 x 10

    Felt nice; did these more explosively than I've been doing them previously

    Weighted dips:
    warmup
    70 x 6, 5, 4, 4, 4

    2 rep improvement from last time despite doing more work on the military presses so I'm getting back in the groove.

    Overall very happy with this.

    Did legs this morning:

    Back squats:
    warmup
    135 x 4 x 15

    Was hoping to do 5 sets but my legs were quite wobbly after 4. Each set was progressively harder, and all on 4 sets the first 10 reps were ok and then I pretty much hit a wall. Definitely need to work on work capacity. I will probably bump up to 145 pounds next time I do back squats.

    Leg press:
    warmup
    250 x 3 x 12

    I could have gotten a few more reps but I want to ease into this and my legs/glutes were quite fatigued after this so it was sufficient for decent work.

    One-legged leg extensions:
    warmup
    170 x 8/7/6

    Assisted glute-ham raises:
    3 x 10

    Everything felt good and I'm happy with this workout.

    Quick workout today.

    Front squats (1 second pauses):
    warmup
    135 x 5 x 10

    Each successive set was more difficult. Overall these felt good.

    Leg press:
    warmup
    250 x 3 x 15

    These also felt good.

    Stopped there as I was getting winded (moved quickly between sets) and gym was a bit crowded. Also I have to prepare for a journal club I'm giving tomorrow.

    Got up at 2:30am today and could not fall back to sleep for whatever reason. Then got slammed in clinic and didn't get to the gym until 6:30pm. Then had a short workout as I was low on energy:

    One armed pulldowns:
    warmup
    170 x 0.5/0.5 (R/L) quickly followed by 100 x 10/10
    100 x 7/7
    100 x 3 x 5/5

    I actually was a bit closer with the left arm than the right on the 170. I'm convinced there's a specific groove I need to hit to get it at this point. My strength quickly fell off on these sets, but I'm happy with the 100 x 10/10. Next time I'll go for 110 x 10/10.

    Weighted dips:
    warmup
    75 x 7
    75 x 5
    45 x 5
    25 x 6
    25 x 5

    I think my PR is 75 x 8 so I'm close to that. My musculature felt weak/tired after the first set.

    Overall I'm fine with this workout circumstances considered. It was a hectic day at work and combine that with little sleep and not eating enough in the morning altogether lowered my energy levels. I still have to finish notes and read one paper before tomorrow morning. Thankfully my journal club presentation yesterday went well.

    Quick update on me. I haven't posted any recent workouts because I haven't been going to the gym. That is because I've been sick. Whatever I have now is NOT the typical cold I get and is worse than any illness I have had in years. Symptoms have been as follows:

    2/10 - mild sore throat
    2/11 - mild sore throat
    2/12 - severe sore throat
    2/13 - severe sore throat, diffuse myalgias & chills in the evening
    2/14 - severe sore throat, diffuse myalgias in the morning
    2/15 - moderate sore throat, began developing a dryish cough, became hoarse
    2/16 - mild-to-moderate sore throat, wet sounding cough, lost my voice
    2/17 - mild-to-moderate sore throat, wet sounding cough, nasal congestion and rhinorrhea, hoarse again

    I honestly think I have multiple bugs. When I started getting chills/myalagis I was worried I had the flu but as that lasted only 24 hours I doubt that's it. Now I'm thinking I have parainfluenza if I only have one thing, although influenza b would also be possible. Definitely not a standard rhinovirus infection. No GI symptoms at all. I haven't checked my temperature.

    I've been working each day (had today and yesterday off) and I'll be working through this weekend and next week. This has been miserable.

    When I am FINALLY healthy to get back at it, new plan:

    Day 1: squats, chest, back
    Day 2: cardio, abs
    Day 3: squats, shoulders, arms
    Day 4: cardio, abs

    Only doing real sessions every other day will give me more time to tend to other responsibilities.

    Sorry about the cold. I had something that lasted nearly three weeks. I went to the "Little Clinic" (Nurse Practitioner) TWICE!

    Not to discourage you from doing abs, but with the heavy squats and weighted chins, I would think that your abs might be adequately worked with just those.
