potter, you'll be seeing a lot more of me as i'll be out in portland with you and l&g for the whole extra time.
and veggieprincess, you have been such a huge help to me. really. and an inspiration to say the least. it always makes me happy to know i can count on you.
DV you are also an inspirtaion to me. have you looked at the weight you're moving lately? holy shit you are strong! and very knowledgable. it always impresses me.
alison, pazios, hilary wright, and dawgburt- thank you very much. it means a lot to me.
ok, so yesterday was legs day for me. the first day in my new workout program, so i went with weight a little lower just to get the form right, but my legs are still pretty sore today.
1 leg leg curl--3 sets of 12x45 lbs
Leg ext w/ body elevated--1 set 15x30, 2 sets 15x35
Hack Squats --first time ever doing these. was very surprised at how heavy the machine is alone. and it KILLED my shoulders(in a bad way)
1st and 2nd set with 20lbs added, 3rd set just the machine.
Reverse Lunges with DBS-I have a hip that pops a lot, so i tend to go light on lunges or it does pop and it hurts. 3 sets of 12 reps/leg wit two 10lb DBS
One Leg Calf Raise- 3 sets of 12/leg with 2 12.5 lb DBS
Roman Chair Straight Leg Raise 3 of 12
3 sets of crunches on ball to failure...about 110 total.
i got on the treadmill for about a minute an a half, said screw this. and went to the stadium to jog around and enjoy the weather rather than stare at the tvs under flourescent lights in front of me...you know the feeling. about an hour or so of that...although i was distracted more than once by adorable pooches.
decent food day-not enough veggies though imo.
i took a multi, calcium, xtend (during my workout) and st.johns wort and 5htp.
overall good day.
Next time... can you walk really fast around the stadium instead of jogging?
Especially with how lean you are getting (and with the title of your journal being "I Wanna Get Buff )... Id rather see you walking at a really fast pace. Does the stadium have bleachers? I sometimes do half lap walking fast, climb bleachers 5 times skipping a step each time, then another half lap walk, climb bleachers, repeat. Sometimes I will just walk the bleachers up and down for 30 minutes skipping a step in between. Its an excellent workout... but yeah... Id like to see you preserve as much lean muscle tissue as possible by walking at full speed instead of jogging
