I got some hand grippers today (these ones - http://store.everlastboxing.com/everlas ... grips.html ) and did several hundred reps with them. I didn't bother counting the exact number of reps, but I got a pretty good burn out of it.

Also, I spent about 15-20 minutes using my wrist roller with the Altus door gym, and this was really effective. So now it's good for two exercises - curls and wrist rolls.

Later today I plan to do some ab work. Me and my wife and son are about to leave town to go to Orlando to stay with my father-in-law for the weekend. His neighborhood has a fitness center, which I think has a lat machine, and I'm hoping they also have a bar because I want to do hanging situps (w/ legs over bar) tonight, and pullups tomorrow.

Oh yeah, and my eating log for today: lots of beans, oatmeal, and water.

I'll update when I get back home, probably on Monday. Have a good weekend everyone. VEGAN POWER.

Tues Sep 27

Did a hundred or so body weight squats and calf raises this afternoon - then went running for over an hour tonight. And by running I mean I was really running, not just a casual jog

Tomorrow is pushups day, and I'm aiming for more than 601 total reps

Trying to do wrist rollers / grippers on the same day as pullups was making my pullups really weak because my arms were tired by the time I got to them, so I'm going to redo my new routine into a 5 day split:

Day 1 - chinups / pullups

Day 2 - one leg squats / one leg calf raises / running

Day 3 - wrist roller / hand gripper

Day 4 - pushups

Day 5 - crunches / situps

wrist roller - spent about 20 minutes using the wrist roller on the door gym. I do 4 different variations because I can roll my hands either away or towards and I can also attached the roller to the bands at the top of the door or the bottom. I alternate directions / attachments after every few sets

hand gripper - did several hundred reps, didn't bother counting them all because I use the gripper in one hand while I'm doing other things. I did count my biggest continuous set though and that's what I'm going to keep trakc of for this exercise --- Biggest set of the day was a 44 rep set

curls - did a few sets of curls at max resistance on the door gym

a bunch of situps, didn't count exactly how many

I bought a 16 lb bowling ball at the thrift store on Saturday that I can hold behind my head while doing situps next time

I just read this article http://bodybuilding.com/fun/charles4.htm and realized that chin-ups means supinated grip and pullups means pronated grip. I used to think that pullups was an interchangeable word for pro or sup grip. See: http://bodybuilding.com/fun/exerpop.php?Name=Chin-Up

Lately I've been doing supinated grip chins almost exclusively, but I'm going to start doing more pronated grips (true pullups) on my chin/pullup day so I hit my back more. See: http://bodybuilding.com/fun/exerpop.php?Name=Pullups

Sun Oct 9

Legs day. Before today I had been doing one-leg squats with the back of my hands/forearms leaning up against a doorway for balance. I read this article - http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/mahler2.htm - and decided to do them differently on Sunday. First I tried doing a few one leg squats without the aid of a doorway, and I had to really struggle to balance. So I tried the stair step method, sitting on a surface about 12" high at the bottom of each rep. I did a hundred reps like this. Even though I was doing a full one leg squat all the way down when I was using the doorway for balance, doing one leg squats with no balance is more challenging even with the 12" platform. At this level though, they are easy for my quads, just hard when it comes to mastering the balance required to do them correctly. I didn't even bother with the calf raises or running I'm scheduled to do on legs day because I was so focused on the one leg squats. Next leg day I plan to do another 100 one leg squats at the same 12" level in order to get the form down better, and then try for lower surfaces until I can master doing them all the way down, easily, with no leaning or using anything to balance.
