Return to Strength Training – Almost- Day 34
Tuesday, April 01, 2014
It’s now day 34 of post cancer surgery of my parotid gland. Pain is still present especially along the jaw line. Being tender to the touch I’ve given up shaving for a while. I have that “Old Man of the Mountain look”; all I need now is to wear a Davy Crockett hat for that finished look.
Haven’t done any strength train since Friday as that routine even though light wore me down.
Today I upped my deadlift weight by 30 pounds and added flat and decline bench presses on the Smith machine. I’m reluctant to go to the Olympic bar for the time being until I know I can control it.
Deadlift 1x5x135, 1x5x155, 1x5x85 (15 Reps for 6,075 Lbs.).
Flat Bench Wide Grip 2x7x35, 2x7x55 (28 Reps for 1,260 Lbs.).
Decline Bench Wide Grip 2x7x35, 2x7x55 (28 Reps for 1,260 Lbs.).
Total 71 Reps for 8,595 Pounds.
It felt good to get under the iron. Stay healthy Spark Friends, Earl
