"Thoughts: I started to feel a little nauseous after the first set of SLDLs, but waddled through with a slightly longer rest period between sets. :puke2: I did fine."
I can't stop laughing,
That statement along with the vometing smilie reminds me of a tee shirt that I had a few years back with a picture of a bent squat bar over a bucket and a line that read "Puke Club".
Sounds like your a member of the club. :clapping:

On a "Say Goodbye to 2006" note, I want to say that I believe I maintained a fairly healthy lifestyle. I have had more beer than I should have, more peanut brittle than I should have and probably not enough cardio.
I think what I will do tomorrow is take some measurements and compare with the beginning of 2006 and the end of 2007. See what happens.
Thoughts: I tossed the planned set of movements today. This is the best I've done on the DL and to be honest, if I had a longer weight bar, I would have tried 350. I just plain ran out of room on it. I don't have enough heavy plates at home. 325 was a challenge, but I got it off the floor!
Congrats on the 325 lb DL Yadmit, that absolutly rocks.
The physical rush that comes with something like that is worth the price of admission, but the mental high that comes afterward is even better.
Keep up the good work!

Thoughts: I lied... I said I wasn't going to add any more weight to the Front Squats. Well, I did. I must still be feeling a bit of soreness from the sprained wrist this summer, though. I could feel some tension there.
The Press was a challenge. But I liked this weight. My right tricep was really tired and I was afraid at one point my arm was just going to give up.
Rows were good. Dare I say almost easy?
Bench was good, but the triceps were pretty tired.
I agree that on the above workout, the OH Press would have pre-exhausted the triceps before moving to Bench. My personal preference is to pre-exhaust on compound movements such as the bench before moving to isolation movements. I know that some would respond however that the OH Press is not an isolation movement, but it is the less compound of the two.
It sounds like you are picking up speed quickly.:clapping:
Keep up the good work and watch your form.
