Friday July 19,2013
MAB Full Body Workout

Step-Ups 15, 10, 12
I figured I'd be a little brave and see if my knee could handle some form of resistance. I initially tried the high box I would typically use for step-ups, but that wasnt happening today, so I settled for an aerobic step box with two risers. Considering I couldnt hardly walk up a steps without excruciating pain last week, i'll take this little bit as progress.

DB Bench Press
8x45
6x45
6x45
(20/20 reps) This was a pleasant surprise. On to 50's!!!

DB Curls
10x25
6x25
6x25
(22/25 reps) A little less than last week

Barbell Row
10x85
8x85
8x85
(26/20 reps) I initially tried 95lbs, but my form got sloppy, and I couldnt bring the bar back fully to contract my lats, so I went back down to get a little better control. This seemed to be much more effective.

Donky Calf Raise
10x170
7x170
6x170
(23/20 reps) Tried a little more weight, I wanted to get 10 reps each set, but I was still able to reach the target rep goal.

Abs (crunches) 20, 16, 12

MAB Full Body Workout

Step-Ups (In place of squats)
15,15,15/bodyweight
My knee has felt alot better over the past week, so I decided to try the step-ups with the high box today to see what happened. Surprisingly, there was hardly any pain at all. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

Close Grip Bench
10x70
8x70
6x70
(24/20 reps) I feel I was able to be more mindful in maintaining my form this week. I'll try for 75lbs next week.

DB Rows
8x70
7x70
6x70
(21/20 reps) This felt a little easier this week compared to last, though I not sure about going up just yet

Standing Calf Raise (Reverse Hack Squat)
10x210
10x210
10x210

BB Curls
9x45
6x45
4x45 ss 12/bar
(19/25 reps)

Abs (Decline sit-ups) 20,15,20

Overall, not too bad of a workout. I'm just ready for my knee to act right.

I really couldn't say how in this particular instance, but I've had issues with my knees since a bad car wreck when I was younger. Every few years they'll just start to hurt, but this was the first time it has hindered my mobility, so I went to the Dr. to get it check out. It was diagnosed as Chondromalacia Patella.

That doesn't sound too good mate, Hope it comes right for you. I have a dodgy shoulder from a motorcycle accident and I just train around it some what. When it is useable I flog it, then it will fail me and I will rehab it. Cycle for life. I don't think you should flog your knee though.

I've been trying to be easy on it and do what the Dr. Says. I have been gradually adding back some light lower body exercises since it is feeling better.

MAB Full Body Workout

Deadlifts
8x135
6x155
6x155
My knee was feeling better, so I took a chance and tried some deadlifts. No pain.

Seated Military Press
8x70
6x70
6x70
(20/20 reps) I'll try for 75lbs next week

Pull-Ups 11,8,6 (25 reps) A little bit of an increase.

Dips (weighted)
12x20
10x20
6x20-6/bodyweight

Seated Calf Raise
10x105
11x105
10x105

Abs (leg raiises) 25,22,20

This workout felt pretty good today. My energy level was higher since I had eaten a good breakfast, and worked out early this morining. (Having the gym pretty much to myself was nice too) One thing I realized is that my rest times between sets have been very short. I timed myself to see when I would typically start the next set, and it was only about 25-40 sec. I continued the rest of my workout with 2min rest entervals between sets, and this seemed to allow me more recovery and strength for the next set.
