    Nice sets. I rarely do t-bar row, should probably do them more. So many reps going on there with leg press too.

    I seem to be able to consciously engage the lats better doing this than any other row variation.

    Just wanted to update from my MRI results. It looks like I have 3 discs that are showing signs of degeneration, although nothing is severe enough for the doc to want to consider surgery right now. At this point it is impossible to say if the disc degeneration is from injury or disease. I suspect disease, as degenerative disc disease is a collagen disorder and tends to go hand in hand with Ehlers Danlols. He said that the prognosis is the same for further degeneration whether I stay active or live a sedentary life, so obviously I'm going to just keep going. The weakness and numbness is more likely the result of extreme spasms causing restricted blood flow than pinched nerves. He actually suggest acupuncture to try to relieve the spasms since I've shown no progress with muscle relaxers and NSAIDs. I'm not sure if my scientific mind will let me "believe" in the benefits of acupuncture, which has never shown a net positive effect in controlled trials. All in all I'm feeling bummed that there is no clear "solution" although happy that I'm not looking at fusion surgery, which is a fate that I've been actively avoiding for 20 years with the sc0li0sis.

    Friday
    Squats 5xbw 5x45 5x95 5x115 5x125 4x3x135
    OHP 5x65 4x65 5x65 2x4x65
    Rack Pull 5x45 5x95 5x5x135
    Superset
    Incline Bench 4x8x65
    Wall sit 3x60 sec w/ 25# plate

    Been relatively swamped at new job meaning I get out late and some personal stuff making me not want to lift in the evenings, but that is wrapped up for now so hopefully I can stick to a schedule this week, then have all next week off so I can gym whenever I want. Didn't hit gym all weekend but managed to get 10k+ steps in on Friday and Saturday. Bummed all of yesterday. Thinking about moving to an offline log so that I get better at tracking weights and there isn't too much engagement on here recently. I realize that's my own fault since I don't really engage in other logs because I have a mega case of imposter syndrome these days.

    True :-) On spread with you...... Maybe I should keep a paper journal and still log here. I might even *gasp* set goals or something for 2019. I basically squandered 2018 with "lift but eat whatever I want" and it shows.

    Monday
    Gym was hella crowded. No racks to be had. Decided to work supporting groups and core mostly. I was sweating like a pig but the workout doesn't look like much in print. Dunno what to say.
    Superset A
    High/low DB squat (lighter weight is overhead, heavier weight is between legs, sets are per side) 5x20/40 5x20/30 3x5x15/30
    3 point row 4x8x30
    Superset B
    One arm DB press 4x8x25
    Single leg SLDL 4x8x28
    Superset C
    Single arm upright row 4x8x25
    Squatting hip abduction 4x8x130
    Superset D
    Buso squat 4x8xbw
    Buso mountain climber 4x10

    Haha I'm with you on all of those points. I keep a black and white composition book with my workout log in it, it's nice to review and I can leave myself notes or set up the next workout. I.E. "Failed on last set, move down 20lbs" or "Increase by 2 reps per set". It helps and it is a great end of year review or progress monitor. I do see the appeal of the online journal, it's everywhere with you. Mine is home in the home gym, which might change next year as I'm back to the point I need to go commercial for the equipment I don't have here at home. Which is going to suck because the gym is always packed, which is why I did the home Olympic set, bars, weights, rack, etc... plus it's that time of year where EVERYONE joins the gym, I'll have to battle the newbs. Debating on just signing up for a good deal then waiting the 1st month out.

    I'm actually going to set a goal for 2019 which is to firmly get back into the 3 plate club, been saying it for a while but holding at 285 on bench in a self imposed plateau from a shoulder issue. Going to very very slowly break back into the club. Have to really concentrate on more core work next year as well, I've completely slipped with my yoga practice and my posture and back pains are clearing giving me signs I need that back in my routine of life. I'll still eat a cheese and sausage pizza solo, I don't even judge myself.
