No weights yesterday (it was chest day) but bootcamp had a ton of pushups. Did as many on my toes as I could manage. And Fartlek method running for 20 minutes...

whoops forgot to update...
Have done heavy arms and back this week (missed legs and a bootcamp session). Started hanging ab crunches, 10 reps but my hands are slipping by 8 so I have to go faster :)

Today was Shoulders. Had to change it up a bit as someone was on the smith machine for ages when we (trainer-gym buddy) were about to start our workout.
- Superset of upright dumbell row + standing dumbell shoulder press
- Smith machine seated shoulder press (OWWWW)
- seated incline dumbell front raises
- rear delt cable flyes
- Superset of side lat raises + bent over dumbell rear delt flyes

Really liking my shoulder work, out of all my body parts my shoulders have shown the most physical change. I'm no longer as rounded looking, my shoulders have a hardness to them. And I love the way they look when I'm working (not so much when I'm slouching around the house!)

Nutrition a bit crap this week, no surprise I feel very mentally drained today and quite crabby.

Don't you love when you start seeing the changes?

Yep! But it's even better when others notice the changes!

Arms and Abs day today. Trainer-buddy has dropped reps to 8 for most exercises and increased the weight. 4 sets for most exercises. Yeeeeah!

(I think this order is correct)
- 4x15 narrow pushups (for triceps)
- seated overhead dumbell press
- Superset of one arm suplinated cable tricep pulldown + the same but a pushdown
- Superset of skullcrushers + tricep press on the bench press (20kg bar)
- incline bicep curls
- alternating bicep curls
- 2 sets of 21's on barbell bicep curl
- ab ball crunches
- ab jacknife crunches holding ball
- reverse ab crunches (holding ball with the feet)

(those bloody balls really do make you work harder!)

25 mins slow jog on an incline (treadmill)

After the arms workout my forearms and hands were numb and also felt so incredibly heavy. I will be in pain tomorrow or the day after :)

Your last post mentioned illness. Are you doing alright? Still working out?
