Not every workout has to leave you sucking air on the deck with a wish that a 300lb swiss masseuse named Olga would come and pummel your muscles until you pass out from the pain

Good point. I was trying to say that I wasn't working with heavy weights today. I make bad associations sometimes. We'll call it a deload.

There were a bunch of retired ass holes (one of them was shouting explicatives as he strained against the 25lb DBs while doing DB bench press). And there was one HOTT woman. She was probably 40 or so, but she was lookin GOOD.

Ah, never underestimate a fine older woman. I would take a truly well preserved 50 over your average 20-something any day.

Deload it is. Just keep in the back of your mind that there is a lot to be gained in the gym, even if you are not getting sore. concentrate on some prehab stuff. Not a lot of weight needed, and giving some often ignored movements a little attention can pay off big time down the road.

Smith machine squats - 2X3 275
Unilateral smith squats - 3X6 135
Leg press - 1X15 ?
Smith standing calve raises - 2X15 135

Smith machine squats are DIFFICULT. I think it was my first time ever using the smith machine for anything other than shrugs. Can't wait to get back to my gym. I will probably do a push workout sometime this week. I should be able to have a decent workout.

I quit doing that recomp when I started the new routine that the guy at my gym wanted me to do...that was about a month & 1/2 ago or a little longer. I had lost a lb or two, but my strength was way up...I think I lost a few lbs of body fat. I'm getting ready to start back with it. I'm going to start doing cardio after every lifting session...I hope. I already have a naturally lean build, so that should be enough, even without diet changes, to help me lean out.

How much cardio are you talking?

Just remember that you have to recover from cardio like anything else, and that cardio (in an evolutionary perspective) has different body mass requirements than weight lifting. So I would pick cardio that was under load (like your typical sled drag, or even walking on a treadmill while carrying weights) or make it short duration high intensity (sprints are good, hill sprints are better). and there is always fun stuff like this!
