Legs

Extensions: 9x6, 1x25 rest/pause
Hack Squats: 6x12
Curls: 2x10, 10 full reps / 10 half reps / 10 second iso hold
Calf Extensions: 3x20

I hit em pretty good, was a little wobbly on the way out.

I slipped in an oil spot here at work yesterday and while catching my balance I kind of jarred my bum wheel. It didn't bother me on the hack squats though, which is nice.

I used to gauge my progress on the weight I could do on Smith Machine OHP. One day about 5-8 weeks ago my right shoulder hurt while taking my shirt off. Just all of a sudden out of nowhere. I really do not like this getting old shit. 😤🤕

I started back lifting after a decade or so on October 12th 2019. I initially started in 1993.
Yeah bet that first decade is the problems now. My first run of 8 years did a number on my hips and shoulders

Why the long break? Curious as I did this too.
I got stuck selling cars for a while and that is super time consuming then just lost the drive. Between 2007 and 2015 I lived in five states, all of those jobs were either take overs or start ups.

Tons of excuses. I'm coming up on two years of consistency now though and I hope I never fall off again.

It happens. I took about the same amount of time off and it took a good 4-5 years to regain everything I had lost. Glad to see you are back on the wagon.
