How do you feel after all this workouts?

Hey Deiman, thanks for visiting my blog! My shoulders suck, so I usually do them last. I know if I did them before biceps/triceps I might do better because they wouldn't be as tired, but it never seems to make a difference.

No workout this morning because of the bad weather, let me explain. I was going to run, but I didn't want to dodge the lightning bolts, and even if I'd done cardio inside the gym, I still would have had to walk to work. So I just got dropped off at work early, and am drinking coffee, ate 2 bananas, and a raspberry bar.

Hey there,
Sometimes shoulders are not growing if you train them way too often. This muscle group is involved in many other excersices and it can be easily overtrained.
What are you doing for shoulders and how often?

Or not enough/or intense enough. I see people all the time doing delts and they clearely dont do "enough" for them.

Friday I had a decent workout. Ran about 3 miles, and then trained chest and triceps, 3 sets 8 reps:

Bench press-20lbs

tricep extensions (skull crushers)-30lb bb

Pec flys- 10lb db

tricep press- 30lb bb

incline press- 20lb db

assisted dip machine- I think it was 75 assisted

decline press- 15lb db 3 sets of 10 because it was a bit too light

tricep push down- 25lbs

a few hanging leg raises for abs

Today I took a basic yoga class. Its a good thing it was basic!!! I really felt lengthening in my quads, and I think for stretching purposes only I will take this class now instead of Zumba. I believe it will help benefit the rest of my workouts during the week, including the running.
After yoga my mom and I walked to a nearby Lake where they were having a yearly event called Fiesta in the Park.
Then we waked back to the car at the gym.

Had a very nice Easter today. I actually wore a dress! :shock: And the size was extra small, so that just about made my Easter.
Tomorrow back to my spin class which I love to hate, or maybe its hate to love!

Opted out of Spin, but had a back breaking, well not quite, workout yesterday. The usual 2 classes that I take back to back, which of course made me sweat all over the place. Sore today, especially biceps, and inner thighs?

Been a very busy three weeks since my last post.
Last week I started at a community college, so my workouts haven't been as consistent as I'd like.
Did tons of walking at Magic Kingdom with my 2 nieces, mom, brother, and his fiance.
Tuesday was my first day of school, math, yuck!
Lots of walking because I did not feel like being in my brothers car, so I opted to walk everywhere.
Thursday I had a fairly decent workout at the gym, which included a run and weights.
Then I had another math class, and lots more homework!
Friday I took an early class at 830am, and stopped at Star Bucks for a coffee with soy milk, and some of their oatmeal.
Walked around a mall with a friend
Saturday- Lots more walking, had to help at an estate sale
Sunday- Step class- I needed it, but not the fall which was included!
Monday-finished homework!

Well I guess its true, college takes up al my time, and I'm only going part time right now over the Summer. Besides that I work a little doing office type stuff for my church, but that is about to end, because I won't be able to do it in the Fall. I also get to the gym as much as I can, which is not enough. I have not run at all since the Summer began. The reason why it is way too hot, and I dont want to be a syupid runner running in unsafe conditions. Central Florid is finally cooling off a little bit with some much needed rain. Last week before the rain it was 101, and 103 degrees and the heat index was much higher. So that is why I am not running.
Still doing Step, Body Pump, spinning, and Zumba classes, and get to the free weight room occasionally.

Last week I took a yoga class, instead of Zumba, I could actually feel my muscles lengthening. Still taking 2 Body Pump classes, and 2 Step classes every week, and hope to get back to running soon. I just don't think it wise to run in the heat that we've been having this Summer, and no way am I going to wake up at 5am to run.

There are only three weeks left of the Summer term, then I have almost all a month off before the Fall term starts. I was supposed to be helping my family move at the beginning of August, but it may be more like mid September, before everything is wrapped up here for them. In mid August I will be in DC for a business conference.
