Thanks Peter. The numbness/pins and needles are going away. So basically now left with sore elbows. Been very busy recently to train much. So last night i was doing something us men dont do well - multitask:
Tri-sets making dinner with:
Bodyweight exercises in garden eg
Pull ups, dips, knee tucks, hindu squats, monster band walks for glutes, hanging from bar
with:
Weeding a border.
So that would be triple multi-tasking! Thanks,Colin.

Hi Colin, good for you.A friend of mine used to call it filling in the borders, meaning finding spaces in a busy day to get some exercise in if only for a few minutes at a time. If we really want to exercise we can always find a way.Yes it may not be ideal,but anything is better than nothing. The combination you have there is as good as anything.Keep it up mate,you know you feel better when you do.
Regards,Peter.

Tuesday
Usual late start. I made sure to warm up and loosen my lower back a little (my left lower side is a little stiff and sore).
Two Hand Pinch
Usual weight x 3 sets of 8 reps (I had to reset my hands on the 2nd and 3rd set - like a few seconds to do so).

Thursday
Lower left back still a little sore.
Close Grip Bench Press
Played around with a wider grip for the first time in years. Worked to a paused on the chest (as per usual warm up poundages) 120kg. Then, idiot that I am, I did a small misload. 140kg (3 x 20 a side as per) plus 5-kilos on one and 2.5 on the other. Then nearly made it worse by meaning to load to 145-kilos and ADDING a 5 in lieu of the 2.5 and so on. I eventually decided to do 145-kilos x 2 x 1 reps and did a grind with 150-kilos x 1 rep

Lat Pulldowns on harder machine - wider double stirrup bar
to stack +1p x 12 reps

Adj/T/Bar
to max x fail due to sore back.

Off on a gentle walk after.

Hey Steve, it is real bummer when you do that isn't.With my atrocious math i have on more than one occasion loaded the bar wrongly. Uneven on both sides is the worst, under loading and thinking you got stronger is next. However over loading feeling how hard the weight that was easier last session is,then finding out it it was more than you have done for the same reps is kinda sweet. Just shows without the mind in the way we can usually do more than we think.
Regards,Peter.
