Back In The Saddle Again – New workout routine

Ah! It feels GREAT to be back in the gym after taking a week off after the shows. Even though my body needed that break, I really missed it and couldn’t wait to get back in there! Yeah, I’m crazy like that… but what can I say? Once you find something you really enjoy, it becomes such a part of you that you can’t imagine going thru life without it. That my friends is called LOVE! haha! Not the romantic kind of course lol! 
It’s nice to feel that my strength is coming back and hopefully soon I’ll be lifting what I was doing before or more. 
So for now, here is my starting point for my next workout routine (designed by my Tall, Dark & Handsome Fiancee 😀 )
Hack squats: 105 lbs x 10 reps, 115 x 8, 125 x 6
Leg Press (feet placed high and wide): 310 lbs x 10 reps, 330 x 8, 350 x 6
Single leg extension: 45 lbs x 10 reps x 3 sets
Calves – flavor of the day:-)
Standing barbell presses: 70 lbs x 7 x 3 – goal was to do 75 lbs but couldn’t do it:( 
Leaning dumbbell lat raise: 15 lbs x 10 x 3
Incline bench dumbbell back shoulder: 15 lbs x 10 x 3 – goal was to do 20 lbs. Hopefully will do it soon. 
Head-crushers: 40 lbs x 7 x 3
Close grip on smith machine: 110 lbs x 10 x 3
Rope pushdown: 50 lbs x 12 x 3
Dumbbell flat bench: 40 lbs x 11 reps, 45 x 8, 50 x 4 – goal is to do 5 reps on last set but I could only manage 4 this time. It will happen! Just watch me lol! 
Hammer machine incline presses: 85 lbs x 7 x 3
Dumbbell incline bench flies: 30 lbs x 8 x 3
Close grip lat pulldown: 105 lbs x 8 reps x 3 sets
Wide lat pulldown: 100 lbs x 7 x 3
Seated row on life fitness machine: 90 lbs x 8 x 3

I’m missing biceps but will be adding it tomorrow or Thursday. I still haven’t done them this week and need to determine my starting weights. 
 I hope you’re all having a great lifting week!
