Week Four - Day Three - Heavy Day

Start: 7:55am
Finish: 9:00am

Hanging Leg Raises: 12x3
Bicycles: 12x3

Front Squats: 55x5/95x5/115x5/145x5/165x5
BB Bench: 55x5/95x5/135x5/155x5/175x4
Lat Pulldowns: 80x5/110x5/130x5/150x5/170x5
DB SLDL: 65x5x5
Calf Raises: 20x4

Thoughts: I thought, 'what the hell, let's up the Bench today. After all, I'm never gonna get anywhere if I don't give it a little more oomph.' I was pleasantly surprised.

I upped the Front Squats figuring if I do 155 on Medium Day, I can do 165 on Heavy Day. I did.

I wasn't getting any bang on the SLDLs with pyramiding the weight, so I decided to do all five sets with 65lb DBs. That's a better idea.

Two minutes rest between sets and five minutes of stretching.

Cardio

On the Combi Bike:

Warm Up: Two minutes
Cardio: Thirty minutes
Cool Down: Two minutes
Distance: 9.7 miles
Calories: 277
Heart Rate: 157bpm
Watts: 150

The reason the distance is farther is I set the pedal rate lower. This allowed me to pedal faster. Upwards of 81 rpm.

Week Five - Day Two - Medium Day

Frog Crunches: 12x3
Crunches: 12x3

Front Squats: 55/85/105/135/155x5
Lat Pulldowns: 80/100/120/140/160x5
BB Bench: 45/85/115/135/155x5
BB Good Mornings: 115x5x5
Rope Wrist Curls: 5x3x4 sets
Seated Calf Raises: 115x20x4 sets

Thoughts: Followed this with some stretching.

I switched the DB Press to a BB Bench Press. I upped the Calf Raises and included an extra set. Almost lost it once on the Front Squats. Regained the focus and attention needed and finished them off.

Doctor's visit:

After waiting till 10:20 for my 9:30 appointment, he came in.

He suggested the shoulder issue may be an impingement. He recommended phsyi for both the impingement and the knot in the back.

As for the cholesterol, he's sending me to get it checked again.

Results soon, I suppose.

On the Combi Bike

Warm Up: two minutes
Cardio: 30 minutes
Cool Down: two minutes

Calrories: 280
Distance: 9.3 miles
Watts: 150
HR: 155bpm

Acupuncturist:

He found some tender spots. Wow. There is some inflamation and other tender areas which are affecting my knees, etc.

The challenge is it's two visits a week which is very costly.

Will need to hum and haw about this.

Week Five - Day Three - Heavy Day

Start: 7:49am
Finish: 8:51am

Hanging Leg Raises: 12x3
Bicycles: 12x3

Front Squats: 55/95/115/145/165x5
BB Bench Press: 55/95/135/155x5/175x4
Lat Pulldowns: 80/110/130/150/170x5
DB SLDL: 65x5x5
Calf Raises: BWx20x5

Thoughts:

I took two minute rests between sets on the Squats and the Bench. I took 90 seconds between sets on the Lat Pulldowns. And about 30 seconds between sets on the SLDLs and the Calf Raises.

Today was a good day. I was a little apprehensive about the Squats and the Bench but tackled them anyway. Did well.

One more week on this routine then likely a week off. I may change my mind next Friday and see how I feel.

I'll stick with these numbers next week unless something amazing happens.

Rest breaks were 60 seconds for the Bench, Squats and Lat Pulldowns. They were 30 seconds for the Good Mornings and the Woodchoppers.

Like those Woodchoppers. Interesting movement. Decided to add them after realizing I really have no twisting movements in my workouts.

Pretty sloppy on the last set of the Bench Press. Not sure why.

Followed with five minutes of stretching.

Finish: 8:45am

Warm Up: Five minutes on the Rower (Level 8 - 501m - 28SPM)

SS:
Front Squats: 65/85/120/140/150x5
BB SLDL: 65/85/120/140/150x5
----------------------------------
Lat Pulldowns: 60/90/110/130/150x5

--------------------------------------

Thoughts: Heart Rate hit about 128bpm. I followed this with about five minutes of stretching.

Tough SS on the Squats and SLDLs. I acutally had to sit down at one point.

The Tri-set was tough too. After I got about half way through the first Rope Curl, I knew any more than one would have been hell. So one is where I left it.

Nice sweat today.

Week Seven - Day Two - Medium Day

Start: 7:48am
Finish: 8:51am

Warm Up: Five minutes on the treadmill

Front Squats: 55/95/115/140/160x5

Swiss Ball Crunch: 12x3

Thoughts: The fifth rep on the last set of Bench Presses was a struggle. I started to lift my lower back, likely too high to get the thing up.

I upped the weight on the Front Squat. The Clean from the floor was fun. Friday should be interesting.

Nice sweat today and I followed this with some stretching.

Thoughts: I threw the OH Presses in for fun. I thought I was gonna scream on the last few sets of Seated Calf Raises. Ouch.

*Almost got the fifth rep done. How about 4.5 reps?
**I actually held the bar up after the fourth rep and thought "I can do five." Then I thought, "what if I can't?" Guess I'm not quite confident enough in that just yet. Maybe next week.

Today I felt real strong. Don't know why.

Thoughts: Did a rest/pause thingy with the last two reps on the Bench. I knew I could push five, but needed a five second nap between the last two.

Today felt good. One more left. I may sneak one in when I'm in Edmonton next week. There is a 24 hour Golds in the Mall. ha.
