Wednesday, August 17, 2016:

Chest/Arms - 3 Rounds, Rest 3 Minutes

1. Bench x 12 @ 205
2. Box x 3 Minutes
3. Hammer Curl x 15* @ 70lbs
4. DB Pullover x 12 @ 50lbs
5. Tricep Ext. x 15
6. Around the World x 12 @ 30lbs

Nothing special today. Just kind of another day of the same old... Bullshit at work. Not eating enough. Still feeling sad as hell. Mostly when I get home, and am immediately reminded. Nothing much else to say about today or this session. Felt good to let loose on the bag for a bit. I need some new gloves with more padding. These give me weird pains in my shoulders the day after. What I have now are the Everlast gloves with the little stick across the underside of the big knuckles. I think that's to reinforce punches/protect your hand, but they don't have much padding - and I really love to throw my fists into the bag. Just don't feel like dropping the coin on anything new. Been spending too much money as of late... Cardio tomorrow.

Well I posted earlier but it got deleted. I've been doing the Insanity DVDs all week so far, and will continue for another week or two. It feels good to have my workouts planned out since I'm really otherwise distracted. No time to post more tonight. Cardio dvd tomorrow.

Insanity Warmup

Kinda crapped out on training today. Had a really early start to my day, which was pretty stressful overall. Took some time to study up for this interview, which was well spent over getting in a full training session. Have some company coming into town this weekend, so I doubt I'll be able to train much on Saturday. Maybe I'll force myself to get it in early and over with. Otherwise, I'm glad tomorrow is Friday.

Pull-up Day

80 pull-ups.

Wow can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I've posted. Took last week off pretty much for vacation. Did manage some hiit work in the mornings but spent most of the time walking - about 12 miles per day. Felt good to get on the bar today though. Re-dedicating this week, maybe incorporate some weights into things, at least on legs. :boxer:

Heh, yeah my pecs and lats are sore as hell still from Monday. We went to Washington, DC, which is the nation's capital. Lots of history, museums, monuments, etc. Saw some well known politicians, and I interviewed for a job that I really hope I get. Would require a move, but we are both ready to get out of here at any cost, really. HOpe you are well buddy!

Tuesday, September 13, 2016: T25 Lower Body Focus DVD

Wednesday, September 14, 2016: T25 Upper Body Focus DVD

Well I never thought I would actually try these DVDs my wife ordered, but they aren't all that bad. Sure, it's far less intense than Insanity, and nearly half the time, but I still managed to break a sweat. Hell, when I woke up today my legs were screamin. I guess you could make these more difficult by adding heavier weights, but the fact is that you are moving the entire time - so at least it is still intense. Anyhow, these are a nice break from the all-out killing it I was doing, and they at least give me a decent shot at completing a workout while working these crazy hours - yesterday was 6a - 5p and then 7p - 9p... Today was 6:30a - 5:30p. One thing I have been experiencing which is really annoying is this sharp pain in and around my traps, usually after doing pushups or boxing, or even shoulder press. It makes it hard to focus and complete any exercise. I'll look into it myself, but maybe some of you have thoughts?

Cardio Day

1. T25 Cardio DVD

This was actually pretty good. Only about 10 different moves, but 25 minutes of full on movement. By the way my legs are still sore as hell from Tuesday, so either I haven't been training them enough (at least this way) or that was a pretty solid workout. Probably the former. It's starting to cool off around here which is really nice, but also is perfect weather where I would be walking Penny -- and preparing for our annual trip to Madison for my birthday. I think that will always be tough no matter how much time passes. Miss her so much. Anyhow, I'm in need of a rest. It's been a ridiculous week, and I am so glad tomorrow is Friday. Headed to this farm we discovered last weekend, that I hope no-one else finds out about. It was pretty well empty last time we were there, but that was nearing closing time. I think this week we'll go in the morning. Here's a pic from last time . . .

Saturday, September 17, 2016:

Shoulders/Back

1. Deadlift - 3 x 12 @ 165lbs
2. Shoulder Press - 3 x 12 @ 70lbs
3. Front Raise - 3 x 12/arm @ 25lbs
4. Row - 3 x 12 @ 165lbs
5. Bench Delt Fly - 3 x 12 @ 70lbs
6. Lat Raise - 3 x 12 @ 30lbs

First day under the weights in a month, and took it at an easy pace. It was just ok, but I think I actually prefer the dynamic training of bodyweight/hiit. I certainly seem to make better gains that way. Maybe just lifting allows me to be a little lazy or lessen the intensity. Anyhow, I plan on watching football for as long as possible today--and I'm already off to a good start. Still really tired from this past week, so maybe that explains my lack of motivation to really hit it hard today. I'll pick it back up next week. Have a good weekend!

@ Rob - thanks for the good thoughts buddy!

60 Pullups

Really tired today, both eyelids twitching from fatigue. Didn't intend on training but squeezed in some pullups while snacking on pretzel sticks. Back at it tomorrow.
