Thanks for the info and the picture example. Last night I tied an apron right over where it was hurting and I could tell it was gonna still be sore, then today I wore a necklace with decorative baubles on the back and everytime I readjusted it I bumped the sore spot.

I feel really good about the squats. I tried putting the bar a little lower on my shoulders and it seemed to help a little bit but it made my balance really different. I felt like I was leaning forward a lot more. The whole workout felt really good.

Skull Crushers superset with Close Grip Bench Press
20x10/20x20 and 6x20/6x20 (10 ended up being too light so I did 6 more at 20 after the CGBP, then pushed out 6 more CGBP)
20x16/20x20

Weighted Ab Crunches
5x35
5x35
5x35

I felt really good about today too. I pushed really hard on everything and the only thing I felt I could have pushed a little harder on was the DB Hammer Curls. I probably could have done another set of 5 at 20 before I had to go down. I'm really proud of myself for pulling out those rows at 40lbs too. 40lbs is pretty close to my gripping limit.

It's more of a 2 day with a day off inbetween. We're doing squats, deadlifts and calves one day. Then chest and back the next day. Then a day off. Then squats, deadlifts, calves and shoulders. Then chest, back and arms.

We probably should have done abs today because we have a bit more time on the legs day, but I had a work meeting I couldn't be late to. After March is over, I have a bit more time and we will probably start doing abs twice a week on a regular basis. At this point, we might just have to fill them in as we can, even if its on a regular day off.

Actually, hon, I'm thinking we'll do a full body workout starting in Apr. (Ha ha...I actually just said this to her in person, but I'm adding it to the forum for anyone who's following.)

Great Job. We will call the 5x85 a warm-up set.
