So I'm writing this on Sunday, not because I was too hungover to train yesterday, but because I trained like a badass (despite a hangover) yesterday, and forgot to make the entry
Anyhow, yesterday I did kind of a mixed circuit of giant sets; some weights, some cardio, some bodyweight. I tried to focus on chest, core, shoulders, biceps and legs. Here's what I can remember:
Jump Rope 3 minutes
Situp V-Up - 1 x 20
Triple Situp - 1 x 10 (so, 30 total situps)
Stability Ball Pike - 1 x 20
Standing Arnold Press - 3 x 12 2 25lbs*
Bodyweight Pushups Three Ways (Standard, Diamond, Pistol Grip on Pushup Bar) - 3 x 20 (60 total, 20 of each)
Overhead Tricep Press - 3 x 15 @ 35lbs
Incline DB Press - 3 x 20 @ 35lbs*
Angled Lunge - 3 x 12 @ 25lbs*
Curls Three Ways (Bruce Lee Curls/Cross Curls/Seated Incline Curls) - 3 x 12 @ 25lbs*
Mountain Climbers - 30 Seconds
Burpees w/ Tuck Jump - 30 seconds
That finisher set really killed me, but I felt so much better afteward; especially considering all the junk food I ate over the last couple days... Saturday night included - a delicious spicy seitan sandwich, seasoned waffle fries, chips & guacamole. Man, it was awesome. No beer on Saturday, just Thursday and Friday of last week. I am actually looking forward to a dry spell.
Woke up this morning and had put on three pounds since Wednesday; probably all water weight. Good news is that my bodyfat % stayed put and
I flexed in the mirror this afternoon and noticed the outline of my top two abs, AND that the outline of my serratus anterior was coming in! Really stoked to see that, especially when I'm feeling bloated. So, I had a great weekend with my wife, my friend, had some beer, cut loose a little.
I honestly think it was time to take a small break from the diet. I needed perspective, and to consume some extra calories for a bit. Also, I slept in today until almost 10:00am - something that hasn't happened in years, even when I was unemployed.
I hope you guys have a badass week!
