Wednesday, July 7, 2016:

Legs - 3 Rounds, Rest 3 Minutes

0. Heavy Bag - 3 minutes

1. Reverse Lunge x 15* @ 165lbs
2. Lunge Jump x 16 @ 70lbs
3. Side Step Up x 12* @ 50lbs
4. High Knees x 50
5. Squat Jump x 15 @ 70lbs
6. Buttkicks x 50

Bonus: 5 minutes on heavy bag

Been absent for a bit, but still been training. Just lazy on posting. Enjoying the circuit training still, and having fun beating the shit out of the heavy bag on a daily basis. I've discovered I have a mean left hook. Food is ok lately, but been too tempted with junk around the house. Probably gained a few pounds, hence the hypertrophic sessions. Probably all cardio tomorrow with the rower, jump rope, and bag. Maybe a sprint or two outside. Hot as hell out there :(.

Thursday, July 7, 2016:

Cardio Day - 2 Rounds, Rest 2 Minutes

1. Rower x 500m
2. Heavy Bag x 5 minutes
3. Long Jump x 12 @ 35lbs
4. Football Drills x 3

Well not as stellar as planned, and mainly because I could tell I was fatigued based on my twitching eyelid. The boxing was brutal and my feet felt like sandbags. Not really sure what was up today. Mind must be elsewhere too. Just felt tired, and thirsty. Came home and had a snack attack, which led to chips and peanuts. Damn those chips. Rest tomorrow, chest/arms Saturday.

Saturday, July 9, 2016:

Chest/Arms - 3 rounds, Rest 2 minutes

0. Jump Rope x 3 minutes

1. Incline Bench x 15 @ 175lbs
2. EZ Curl x 12 @ 80lbs
3. Box x 3 minutes
4. Push-up Jacks x 20
5. Cross Curls x 15* @ 70lbs
6. Tricep Extenstion x 20

Pretty good and sweaty today. Wish I had more stamina for jump rope. Haven't been inspired food-wise today and basically are oats, clif bars, peanuts, and chocolate chips. Garbage. At least most of the junk is cleared out of the house now, so smooth sailing going forward. Found my favorite beer in a can last weekend (an ipa). Pretty good day. Pizza for dinner. Sure I'm over on calories, dammit. Eyelids still twitching. :(. Rest tomorrow, pull-up session on Monday. Legs Tuesday. Have a good weekend!

It's a beer called Moon Man from a Wisconsin brewery known as New Glarus. It's only available in Wisconsin; they like to keep things local. It's my favorite beer of all time!

I guess it's not really an IPA, but an APA or just a pale ale. Either way, it's the best.

Sounds delicious, and rare. A good combination. IPA/APA/Pale Ale, as long as it's nice and hoppy it's one for me.

I home brew, and APA is my favoured style to brew. This weekend I finally installed a fridge in my shed so I can chill my kegs down, and have nice hoppy, cold ale on tap whenever I want it (cheat days only of course ;) )

That sounds like an excellent way to conclude a grueling leg session!

No training. Got some upsetting news today that tanked any motivation I might have had to step under the weights. I'll try again tomorrow.

I've been better man. Honestly, I'm in the mood for something new and I thought I had something lined up but it didn't work out which was a real bummer. I'll keep looking I guess hopefully something will work out.

Didn't get them trained too much this week with all of the extra bullshit going on, but I didn't get any good session tonight see below. Thanks for checking in hope you're doing well

Warrior Day - 3 Rounds, Rest 2 Minutes

0. Boxing - 6 minutes

1. Boxing x 3 minutes
2. Sumo Squat x 15 @ 250lbs
3. Military Press x 12 @ 80lbs
4. Curls x 12 @ 80lbs
5. Deltoid Fly x 15 @ 70lbs
6. Boxing x 3 minutes

I love beating on the heavy bag. I have a lot of fire to me that's for sure, I just wish I were a little bit taller and hadn't spent so much money on my brain so that my wife would let me fight in an actual match LOL. But really I thought 1 million times better after the session, even though I had a frustrating day and an even shittier commute. Took me a whole hour to get home even though I was only going 7 miles total. Living in a major city can be very very frustrating, and while it was something that I am joyed when I was younger, there's just nothing really left me here that makes it worthwhile. I need to make sure that I always train angry. I get a lot more out of it and can keep the intensity have the whole time. Resting tomorrow, even though I don't deserve it. Then, I'm going to hit up a chest focused full body day on Saturday

Circuit - 3 Rounds, Rest 3 Minutes

0. Jump Rope - 2 minutes

1. Bench x 12 @ 205lbs
2. Box x 3 minutes
3. Football Drills x 3
4. Long Jump x 16 @ 35lbs
5. Drag Curls x 12 @ 90lbs

This was pretty killer. I love working on the heavy bag. Best idea in a long time. Leaves me spent and stress free. Started watching videos on YouTube to work on form, etc., and think I can learn some fun stuff. Otherwise, it's taco and beer night! Have a good weekend!!!
