Nothing happening in our part of the world today, Sandy has shut everything down. Lots of wind and rain. We are pushing 10-12 inches of rain since Saturday. Still, it made a nice day to workout.

Leg Curls/Extensions - all of my leg work for the foreseeable future will include hamstring and quad work, with a lean toward more hamstring work. Didn't want to tire my legs out too much before squatting.
Squats - I was going to just do some higher rep light work, but I felt so good after the first set that I wanted to see what I could do. I have not done any heavier back squats since early June. 5 x 225 is my best set ever and that was over a year ago. These were not that difficult, I got out over my toes and from was breaking down so I racked it. If I had stopped, taken a few breaths and proceeded slowly, I probably could have tied or beaten my previous PR. Still, I was extremely happy.
Hip Thrusters - Starting to get in the groove with these. Goal, to build "a butt."
I had a nice lengthy inversion break at this point and it felt great!
BHNP - slightly wider grip, two fingers wider, lift felt better. I am microlaoding at this point. PR via microload FTW! The Pumpsets were great but wore me out.
Smith Pendlays - Was planning to give Rack Pulls a go, but after the squat success I didn't want to push things too much. Wide grip and pulled to the chest. Really hits the upper back.
DB Incline Bench - quick, light, chest hit. Felt good.
WG Pullups - Doing these pre-exhausted is probably not smart, but they are moving forward slowly.

Good session. Since everything is shut down, I took my time, about an hour and a half. Wednesday, Ham emphasis, Bench Pumps and possible Rack pulls.
