08 training log

#1 Postby pelicanAndrew » Sun Jan 20, 2008 5:42 pm

Goals- Loose fat, gain muscle, don't hurt myself

Nutrition- Lots and lots of grains and legumes with loads and loads of fresh veggies and fruit. Farmer's market raids will become routine as the warm weather rolls in later this year...


Friday- Upper body day

Had a light day lifting, getting back into the swing of things after a few months off.

Bench 1x8@135, 1x6@145, 1x6@155, 1x8@135
Triceps pulldown, 1x8@100, 2x8@110
Curls- 3x8@30

Nice and light.

Sunday- Cardio

30 minutes of HIIT on bike.

Routine looks like this....

Monday- Squats
Tuesday- Cardio
Wednesday- Back/shoulders
Thursday- Possible cardio day but more than likely a rest day
Friday- Chest/arms
Saturday- Cardio
Sunday- REST!

Rinse repeat. Probably am going to invest in some BCAAs and then start cycling creatine this summer. Gotta talk to my friends back at home and see if they want to all join the same gym over summer.

Hey,
Good to see you back in the gym and keeping a log again :D
Have you ever loved someone so much you didn't care what happened to yourself?
You Just had to be with them.
If they look at you, your heart stops.
If you feel their breath on your skin, you just ache.
Have you ever craved someone so much you didn't exist anymore?

It took my awhile. I had to get my shit together again. :?

The gym isn't open today because of MLK day. They use student workers in the weight room to supervise so unfortunately legs are going to have to wait until tomorrow. :( I may just use the bikes in my apartment complex. They have some nice cardio equipment downstairs beneath their office. I need to move my body.

Well after a week of trying to workout AND take 18 credit hours I've decided to do all of my lifting on weekends. It's the only free time I have. I will let you all know how it goes.

Now all my cardio will be done on weekday nights at 9 o'clock. Wish the damn weight room was open then....

grrrrr....
