    Sat 8/22

    Bent over DB rows - 55x8, 60x8, 65x8, 65x6
    Bent over BB rows - 105x8, 105x8, 115x6
    Wide grip pulldown - 115x8, 120x8, 120x6
    Deadlift - 135x10, 195x6, 195x6, 205x4, 215x1 (grip failed badly - may have been that I was using an old ~smooth bar)
    Low machine row - 120x10, 120x8, 125x5

    Overall, I was happy, I think I started my first set of deads a little high. My back was feeling quite sore by the end and my grip failed on the 215 dead, I could have pulled 2 more reps.

    sounds like a good idea

    I can probably use the little raised platform that I use with the calf raises to stand on. For the leg that is not being worked, how do you position it? Do you just kind of curl it up or stick it out to give balance?

    I would probably need to work on this without any weights at first, because I am not able to go down much.

    Why no barbell squats if you have a power rack?

    Its complicated. During the fall/spring (and this summer for 6 weeks) I am at my college with does not have a power rack.

    THe other times (so basically intermittently) I am at home where I have access to a power rack. Since I was back and forth this summer, I did not start doing real BB squats.
