Great to hear that you've hit the pain free zone, after all the issues you've been going through and working around. Lateral raises are the one area I don't push for PBs, well not much anyway, congrats on those PBs

That's a heck of a way to live. Here's to many more pain free days.

Nice leg workout.
You mentioned focusing on keeping your core tight. This is something I think most of us could work on, i know I can. During some lifts, your focusing on doing so many things it's hard to remember(sometimes) to do something as basic as keep your core tight.
Doing so is an important aspect of most if not all lifts.

Breathing is big on this ^^ Breathe into your stomach, not your chest and then hold that breath and push out as you lift. When you hit the sticking point on the positive part of the movement, exhale. Keeps your core tight and creates an "inner belt".

Thanks. It has been interesting. Thinking back, there was my shoulder, then forearm, then back. None of them hurt at the moment, so I am knocking on some wood and taking it was easy as I can.

Right. I've got to get to the point where the tight core is an automatic with all things. Some of the core exercises my PT has me doing will help with this in the long run, I am sure.

Thanks, Al. I remember that you have talked about this more than a few times and I have been trying it. Just gotta get my head in the game a bit more.

Chesticles

DB Bench 45x15, 55x12, 65x12, 75x12, 75x10
HS Incline 180x12x4
Dips BW+25x15, BW+25x12, BWx20, BWx20
Pec Deck 175x12x3
Hyper Extensions BWx10, x10 (10 second hold on 5th and 10th rep)
Reverse Crunches BWx5

Decent session today. Working on bench form as I really got sloppy with the 80# DB. Found a way to do reverse crunches in the the gym, so will be swapping them for the hypers.

Friday appointment with the doctor went well. She noted improved mobility and flexibility in hips, back and hamstrings. Everything still looks good neurologically. She asked about workout weights and I told her the range in which I had been working. She told me to not "get cocky. Just because there is not pain does not mean the herniation isn't there." Slightly deflated, but she's probably right. I mental response to this is to slowly work my way back up and maybe continue to consider alternative DB exercises. We'll see.

Best bud's bachelor night was Friday. Good times. I mistakenly wore a tank top. Evidently the bars he prefers require men to have sleeves. Got refused entry at two places because of this. Was funny to me. I told the second bouncer that I trained hard so I wouldn't have to cover myself up in baggy tees with sleeves. Yeah, I was feeling more than a bit obnoxious.

Back to the work grind in 5, 4, 3...

I got kicked out of a club once because of footwear. I was too ignorant to know I wasn't cool.
