A1: incline db bp worked up to 70x10, 75x5
A2: Seated cable row worked up to 2x10 @120
Then cable flyes simulating a decline and lat pulldowns worked up to 2x10 @120.
Chest was super pumped. Wish I'd had more time, but that's what I got.
I'm going to try holding steady for the first 3 weeks of jan and cut a teeny bit so I can feel better about going to miami. Thinking of either making sure I make it in the gym and stay longer and do more stuff or add 10-15 mins of cardio (stair climber, bike, etc) to the end of my workouts (probably just the former). And cleaning up my diet a bit. i.e. nothing crazy. No point doing something stupid at this point. Keep playing with that stuff till like april and evaluate where things are at. If a lift stalls for a bit or I start feeling too sluggish, I'll make sure to cut down a bit and/or eat a bit. More. Looking forward to dialing in the diet a bit.
One of the spine surg fellows suggested that I try doing box jumps etc for legs after I asked him what he'd do if he was in my spot.
Seems like I have more to work with than I thought.
