Okay.. started my 5X5 full body routine today...

Before hand I took some measurements with my body fat scale, which I don't like at this point! haha...

Weight: 205lbs
Bodyfat: 25.5% (I've had a measurement almost 10% lower by other means, so I'm taking this with a grain of salt. I just want the % to go down with whatever method I'm using to measure)
Water weight: 55.5%

Start: 7:35am
Finish: 8:35am

Warmup: three minutes on the eliptical.

Chins: BWx5x5
Leg Press: 270lbsx5x5
DB SLDL: 40lbsx5x5
BB Bench: 65lbsx5x5
EZ Bar Curls: 30lbsx5x5
Cable Pushdowns: 10kgsx5x5
OH Press: 45lbsx5x5
Calf Raises: 180lbsx5x5
Rev Calf Raises: 180lbsx5x5
Ball Crunches: BWx5x5
Ball Obliques: BWx5x5

Thoughts: Good to get back to the gym... some of the weights can be upped (EZ Bars, Bench)... I took 30 second rests between sets. Not winded, but got the heart going. Once I have the poundages tuned in I should get a good bit of cardio from this!

Okay, still trying to tweak this a bit, when it comes to weights and order, but I think I did better today, then it was shoulders. Gah...

Week One/Day Two

Start: 12:12pm
Finish: 1:12pm

Warm Up: 3:30 on eliptical

Leg Xtns: 30lbsx3x5/35lbsx2x5
Sissy Squats: 10lbsx5x5
BB Good Mornings: 45lbsx5x5
Inc DB Flyes (on ball): 15lbsx5x5
Preacher Curls: 30lbsx5x5
Decline Skulls: 30lbsx5x5
Smith Calf Raises: 50lbsx1x5/60lbsx4x5
Smith Rev Calf Raises: 60lbsx5x5
DB Front Raises: 8lbsx5x5
Hanging Leg Raises: 5x5
Stomach Vacs: 2x60 seconds

Thoughts: I was doing the early show today. Only had about four hours of sleep and a splitting headache. Despite that, I felt I had a good workout. I can up the weight on almost everything. Realized after I did calves I should have done shoulders before hand.

I had about 20 seconds rest between sets.

Came home and had a snooze for about an hour. Still have the headache. ack...

Week One/Day Three

Start: 12:39pm
Finish: 1:33pm

Warm Up: 3:30 on the treadmill

Horizontal Leg Press: 115x5/150x4x5

Conc. Curls: 15lbsx5x5
DB OH Xtns: 20lbsx5x5
DB Seated Calf Raises: 30lbs(each leg)x3x10
EZ Bar Rev Curls: 25lbsx5x5
Weighted Crunches: 25lbsx5x5

Thoughts: I can up the weights on most of these... in fact, I'm thinking all of them. Except the Supine Rows. Although they may be interesting to throw some weight on my chest. Maybe give that a go. I lost track of sets on the Xtns, so I did one more just in case. Better safe than sorry.

My stint at mornings is over for the time being. Getting up at 3:00am can really wreak havoc. Not the best sleep over the last three nights, bad eating habits. Food has been okay, just not eating regularly.

Things return to normal now! Wooo-Hooo...

I love the 5x5. But, I have a question about doing calves on this routine. Do you stick with five sets of five, or do you do less sets with a heavier weight?
