George Peppard's HAUNTED training log
 
Today's George Peppard fact: George was raised by a pack of feral Bassett Hounds. In his early screen roles, George was not speaking his lines, but barking them in a manner that was suggestive of speech.

The log

I've not really done very much training since last August. My job's been taking over my life, and a couple of injuries have limited what I can do when I'm in the gym. I have some bone nodules floating around in my elbow, symptoms of degenerative arthritis, and I have what I think is a rotator cuff tear. I picked up the latter doing DB laterals - I was doing them to avoid over-stressing my elbow!

Anyway, though the weights will be light and the training infrequent (and far from serious), I'll have a go at logging again.

Sunday

Bent over rows

60 (132) X 10
80 (176) X 10
90 (200) X 8
95 (210 X 6

Stiff-legged deadlifts

60 (132) X 5
110 (242) X 5
140 (308) X 5
140 (308) X 5
140 (308) X 5

Standing DB press

12 (26) X 12
14 (40) X 12
16 (40) X 12
18 (40) X 12

Really pleased with those DB presses as those are the first I've been able to do (with over 10kg) without my shoulder/rotator cuff playing up. If I can stop myself from going mad on these, it may be a sign that it's recovering.

A year ago, I was stiff-legged deadlifting 308 X 16, if I remember correctly. Ah well.

Do work Tann!

Thanks gentlemen.

Today's George Peppard fact In 1974, George fell down stairs in his Malibu home. The injury prevented him from taking the role of Fonzie in Happy Days. George sued his own knees for causing the accident. His knees counter-sued for defamation. Eventually an independent arbitrator brought about a reconciliation, but George never really got over the incident, and he often said that he would trade all his worldly goods for a pair of reliable mid-leg joints.
