Start: 9:29am
Finish: 10:37am

Warm Up: Three minutes on mini-trampoline

Thoughts: Well, this was tough. *Interesting Super Set. I read somewhere (can't remember where) about Super Setting Front Squats and Regular Back Squats. Now normally I can squat a bunch more with the ATG, not a lot, but more... this was killer. I thought I was gonna die.
**This is the heaviest I've gone for reps on the SLDL. Had to pry my fingers straight. :) haha...
Overall, this was cool... loved the Super Set. Hate lunges.

Cardio today...

Post by yadmit » Tue Jan 24, 2006 11:17 am

Usually I do this at home, but I wanted to try some variety from the mini-trampoline... went for a bike.

Warm Up: Three minutes
Cardio Time: 30 minutes (I threw in a couple intervals also)
Cool Down: Two minutes

150 Watts/150 BPM/Not sure what the calorie count was as I forgot to check... suffice to say I probably burned off a good chunk of the oatmeal I had for breakfast...

Don't feel real well today. I have a sore throat and a bit of a cold. I'm hoping I sweated it out today!

I absolutely felt like quitting today. But I told myself what the heck would that accomplish? Sure, I'd be done early, ya I could quit putting myself through this agony and get some other things done. I'm coming back tomorrow, so what difference does it make if I don't do abs today? You can't make up a lost workout. So I finished. Take that desire-to-stop. ha....

January 31st, 2006

Start: 8:04am
Finish: 9:05am

Warm Up: Three minutes on the eliptical and some rotator stuff

Thoughts: *It wasn't pretty, but I managed to get the bar up all the way. I added five pounds to each set. New PR for me on the bench. ** Did these last in the tricep work. Usually do these first. Last time I did seven. Gotta switch things up once in a while anyway.

Overall, I'm glad I beat down the 'take a break' demons and moved on. Feel as though I accomplished something now.

Today, while I was doing my calf raises and between sets, one of the gals in the gym asked me a simple question: "Are you training for a competition?" Well, goodness me. My reply, "nope, training to live." In all honesty, I feel I have a llllloooonnnnnggggg way to go before I even think of competing, which isn't even a goal of mine. I don't have the food discipline needed for sucn an adventure. But, I was flattered none the less. I finished my workout with a smile instead of the squishy face I have when I'm trying to lift something heavy.

Start: 8:05am
Finish: 9:03am

Warm Up: Three minutes on the eliptical

SS:
OH Press: 45lbsx8/50lbsx8/60lbsx8
BO BB Row: 45lbsx8/50lbsx8/60lbsx8

Frog Crunches: 15x3
Ball Crunches: 15x3

Thoughts: *felt a little twinge in the left shoulder while doing these.. too much weight? Too much shoulder work in one day? I'll keep an eye on it. Doesn't hurt now. Overall, I felt this was a good workout. Please with it!
