    Had my first 6 month Cancer check up today...what a rollercoaster of emotions waiting for blood test results!!!

    Anyway, i was a little drained coming into tonight's session, but I got the work done, and easily too. The conditioning aspects are still a work in progress but the strength is not an issue at the moment.

    Doc's say I'm still three months or so away from being 100% back (i.e. the after effects of the radiation and hormone treatments should be out of my system).

    Pretty easy top set, had two maybe a grindy third in me if pushed.

    The hardest part of the session is the last RDL set...No one cares, you're tired, and you just want to be done!

    Cycle 5 - Week Two reps/sets

    Bench - 77.5kg *7
    Paused Bench - 70kg 7*2
    Spoto - 80kg 5*3

    Dumbbell Bench - 60lbs 12*3

    Dumbbell Incline Bench - 60lbs 10/10/9

    Tri Pulldown - #11 20*3
    Hammer Curl - 40lbs 25*3

    After undershooting RPE last week, I got it right today. Not to jinx things, but I think I'm making progress...incremental as it is, it's still progress.

    The Spoto work at the end of the barbell work is a killer.

    Cycle 5 reps/sets

    LBS - 107.5kg 7*3
    PB - 67.5kg 7*3
    Mid Shin Paused Deads - 145kg 3*3

    Going forward, all the assistance work is being moved to Sunday. I need a reason to get out of the apartment.

    Couldn't find depth to save my life this morning. Benching with a pause on the down sets should pay dividends down the road. The Deads were the best I've done.

    D - 167.5kg *7

    RDL - 130kg 12*3
    Kroc Rows - 80lbs 10*3
    Revs Cable Flys - #4 12*3
    Palof Holds - #8 30sec *3

    Got in early to lift with a couple of folks who wanted some company on a week four schedule #moralsupport.

    Everything was well within RPEs...but the cardio aspects of sevens...OYE!

    If I finish this cycle at 182.5kg for seven, I will be fully back to "normal".

    Spoto - 77.5kg 5*3
    Dumbbell Bench - 60lbs 10*3
    Dumbbell Press - 40lbs 10*3
    Dumbbell Incline - 5olbs 12 *3
    Tri P/D - #10 20*3
    Hammer Curl - 70lbs 12*3

    Undershot the top set. My neck has been an issue for the past few weeks and it's referring down to my arm so I was trying to be conservative. Damn thing didn't bother the Bench though...go figure.

    Always interesting to do the Spoto work heavier than your top set.

    Cycle 5 reps/sets

    LBS - 120kg *7
    LBS - 107.5kg 7*2
    Tempo Pause LBS - 90kg 6*3
    Tempo 2 Tempo BSS - bw 10*3
    Wide Grip Pulldown - 85lbs 15*3
    Leg Lifts - 20*3

    Real training load. No concessions to age or infirmities. Conditioning is better than I thought. That Tempo Pause work is BRUTAL.

    Our gym is holding a meet in January, so I'm signing up - #thereturnofgymdad

    Not going to run a peaking program, we're going to train for Raw Natls as the ultimate goal, and this is just an opportunity to get back on the platform, and have "fun".

    Must say, I'm looking forward to the opportunity.

    We've got a number of people who are heading down to Virginia to compete in a few weeks. The atmosphere in the gym is always fun when a meet is around the corner, and folks are moving some solid weights!
