Looks like the cold has taken a hike.

Last night, went for the DL/DB press; Bulgarian split-squat/DB pull over; Prone hip extention/jackknife workout.

Upped the DL's to 145 for 20/ 2 sets with DB press at 25#. Sets of 20 are definitely harder than they seem. Grip became a factor during the second DL set. Shoulders felt good through set one; set two, my left seemed to weaken first.

As for the split-squats and pull overs, I can safely say my left side is the stronger for split-squats, but sucked at pull overs. I actually worked to failure on the pull overs using 20# DB's. That was a first.

The hip extentions gave me fits last time. I was only able to do 10 per side before crying like a schoolgirl whose Justin Timberlake CD got scratched. I worked up to 15 per side last night. Improvement! (and I got a new JT CD) The jackknives suck.

The plan is to do one more of each workout using 2 sets, maybe upping the weight, then going for the 3 sets of 20 for the next three rounds. I'm not looking forward to it.
