I usually go to the gym 6 days a week. Monday's, Wednesday's, and Friday's are cardio days, usually spent on the elliptical. Tuesday's, Thursday's, and Saturday's are my lifting days. I just started doing some different exercises as I was inspired by everyone here. I'm also trying to get away from some of the machines, so I'm still feeling out how much weight I can actually do.


Saturday 2-18
Back Squats - 10x3 65lbs
Deadlifts - 10x3 80lbs
Goblet squats - 10x3 30lbs
Leg Press - 10x3 240lbs
Leg extensions - 10x3 65lbs
Single leg squats - 10x3 on each leg
Wall Sit - 2 minutes. I was optimistic going for 5 minutes, but that really didn't happen.



Sunday 2-19

Rest! Glorious rest!

Monday 2-20

50 minutes on the elliptical


Tuesday 2-21
Chest Fly - 10x3 w/15lb dumbbells
Chest Press - 10x3 w/20lb dumbbells
Rows - 10x3 70lbs
Lat pull down - 10x3 55lb
Lateral raises - 10x3 w/10lb dumbbells
Shoulder Press - 10x3 w/15lb dumbbells
Kickbacks - 10x3 w/10lbs dumbbells
Tricep pulldowns - 10x3 40lbs
Hammer curls - 10x3 w/15lb dumbbells
Barbell curls - 10x3 30lbs


Wednesday 2-22

I have been thinking about some goals I would like to achieve so I thought I'd log them here.

1. Complete the 100 pushup challenge.
I have been working on this for awhile, but just never seem to get past week 3. In order to do this I will be using habitforge.com

2. Do at least 15 minutes of abs 4 days a week. I am also going to be using habitforge for this, as I will be doing my abs on the off days of the 100 pushup challenge.

3. Be able to leg press twice my body weight. Be able to squat 100 lbs.

4. Run or bike at least 2 times a week. This might not start right now, as I'm sorta a wimp when it comes to running in the cold, so this will probably be on hold for a few more weeks.

5. Eat totally raw, 80/10/10 at least 2 days a week. Usually I'm about 70% raw most days, but have trouble eating raw for dinner. I want to break the habit of thinking my dinner has to be cooked.

6. Loose 10lbs. Right now I weigh around 144 and I'm only 5 ft. I would like to loose a lot more, but right now I'm shooting for 10lb, and hopefully by reaching the rest of my goals this one will happen to.


My completion date for these goals is 5-14-12. Some of them, like running and doing abs will continue indefinitely.

50 amazing minutes on the elliptical


Thursday 3-1

Chest Fly - 10x3 w/15lb dumbbells
Chest Press - 10x3 w/20lb dumbbells
Rows - 10x3 75lbs
Reverse Fly - 10x3 w/15lb dumbells
Straight Arm Lat pull down - 10x3 40lb
Lateral raises - 10x3 w/10lb dumbbells
Shoulder Press - 10x3 40lbs
Kickbacks - 10x3 w/10lbs dumbbells
Tricep pulldowns - 10x3 45lbs
Hammer curls - 10x3 w/15lb dumbbells
Barbell curls - 10x3 35lbs



As far as my goals go I did some abs the other day, but no pushups. :-( Been kinda crazy this week but I plan on re-grouping this weekend so I can start out fresh next week and kill it.

I did reach my goal of eating raw 2 days. Tuesday was great, and I tracked my food using Cron-o-meter just to see how much I really had. I made it to 2762 calories, 35 g Protein and 13 g fat. I'm eating the same amount today, so the totals should be pretty similar.

Damn gym 6 days a week. Maybe see if they have a room to rent there haha. But serious that's hardcore, definitely motivates those of us like me that go 3 days on a good week and 1 day on slacker weeks.

Haha. Maybe I should! I never feel hardcore, because there are 2 other people that are there with me almost everyday, and they can lift a lot more than me.

Well those people are probably pushing you harder so that's positive. I always feel whether its working out or playing sports or working or with anything in life that if I am working or training with people that are better than me it pushes me to get better results than if I am around people below my level.
