*Had a giant set of lying extension variations planned, but got sick and stopped short of throwing up (vomiting is a very catabolic process )
Thanks for linking that routine for him Dev - I do like that one, and it is appropriate for intermediate lifters, but I found that the volume was a little high for me while I am cutting. In general, I'm not a big fan of magazine workouts, but one I had alot of success with, and one that sort of bridged the gap between football training and bodybuilding training for me, was called the Frankensplit. Its basically 3 days of bodybuilding training and 2 days of strength training per week. Sometimes it can be hard to stay motivated when you dont get to see your maximal strength improve, and this routine allowed me to mix the higher-rep, body part split workout with a strength-focused push-pull workout.

As for the new piece of equipment I picked up today - I found a Yukon vertical leg press CHEAP on craigslist. As a bonus it is virtually unused, looking forward to adding it into the repertoire:
Thanks for the link, I like the idea of a Franken Split. Might just play around with a few ideas and create my own to do after this routine I'm on.
Yah I'm always trolling on there, had to drive an hour and a half for this one but it was worth it. Some vertical leg presses are made real cheesy, but the Yukon ones have a 600lb capacity. That may not sounds like a lot on leg press, but keep in mind that on a vertical leg press you are moving all of the resistance whereas an angled leg press gives you a significant mechanical advantage.
Hey everyone, just wanted to give you all an update while I am in front of a computer. On Thursday night, the community that I live in was hit with ANOTHER severe storm. They have not yet determined whether it was tornado(s) or microbursts, but it really doesn't matter, it is ugly. My wife and I were fortunate as we did not have any serious damage to our home, but there are thousands of trees down, and probably about 50 houses in our area were hit by trees. Needless to say, we do not have cable/phone/internet - I'm posting from my parents home right now. Once we have all of our utilities restored, I will resume posting to my log.
