BeYourBest Training Log

#1 Postby BeYourBest » Wed Feb 24, 2010 10:55 am

I figured having a place to record my training details would make me more accountable. Ha. Here's what I did yesterday:

-10 minute warm-up on elliptical
-Warm-up with light weights targeting muscles I was about to work-out

For each of the below exercises, I did 3 sets. The first set was 12 reps, the second set was 10 reps, the third set was 8 reps. For each set I increased the weight by about 5 or 10 pounds, depending on the exercise...

Overhead Cable Shoulder Presses
Front Lat Pull-Downs
Dumbbell Rear Lateral Raises
One-Arm Dumbbell Rows
Behind the Neck Lat Pull-Downs
Seated Cable Rows
Shoulder Shrugs

It felt very good getting back into the gym. :D

As for food...

Breakfast
oatmeal w/ hemp seeds, 2 cups of coffee w/ soy creamer

Post Work-Out
smoothie (almond milk, brown rice protein powder, organic mixed berries, banana, agave nectar)

Lunch
Udon noodles with mixed veggies and tomato sauce

Dinner
smoothie (almond milk, brown rice protein powder, organic mixed berries, banana, agave nectar)

Snack
dried organic mangoes, small decaf soy latte, raw raspberry chocolate bar

Before Bed
cup of organic peppermint decaf tea, homemade lime popsicle (organic lime juice, stevia)

it might help to keep track of weights. It'll help you see your progress.

Logs rule.

I totally understand. Pretty sure everyone here will. We ALL had to start somewhere!
