Alight i forgot to update for saturdays workout.

I am doing the three sets of 3-4 max weight dont really feel much different. So i am going to be doing 4-5 sets at 3-4 reps instead on those off weeks as well as some cardio.

Cardio:
I have avoided this like hte plague but ill be damned if i am going to get fat again. So in that spirit i will be adding 15-30 minutes of stairclimber or hill sprints to the program on my down days.

Monday was leg day.

Did 3x12 with 60lbs of squats

did 3x12 with barbell of front squats

did 3x12 of single dumbbell leg raises

My friend was tired who i work out with so i used that as an excuse not to do straight leg deadlifts. Ill have to go extra hard next time.


I think this is getting too light for me. Next work out im going to 70lbs and front squats to 60 lbs.

Tuesday was my first cardio day.

I did the elliptical for 25 minutes at a high setting and burned almost 600 calories. Needless to say i was famished when i stopped so i ate about three hundred calories.

Wednesday:

I worked out with Crystal. and as usual she is a task master. Even though i did not feel like i was working harder and actually secretly thought that it was not as good as my workout it did indeed kick my ass moreso than my normal workout. I am seriously considering adding the benchpress with the barbell to my workout soon instead of dumbbells. I think it was the pushups afterwards that kicked my ass.

benchpress

1x12 barbell
1x12 ?
1x12 ? heavier
1x10 ?
1x8 90lbs

pushups:
7reps
6reps
7reps

close grip benchpress
1x12 barbell
1x12?
1x12?
1x10?

Dumbbell hammer curls

1x3 with 25
1x5 with 20
3x12 with 15lbs

my arms were so sore after this. woot woot.

Hey, if you ever want to go harder, we can always go harder :P :P :P muhahahaaa!

Anyway, we ended on 95 pounds on the BP, not 90, and the weight increments were: bar-65-75-85-then end on 95 pounds :D .

While i am down for that i also wanted to meet up with you on the third day of training. we have done squat and chest i wanted to see what you did for back. so perhaps two workouts next week?

Also I am planning to have my birthday party on January 3rd at one of the rock climbing places(either rockreation or monumentum) so if your down you can ride up with me or meet me there. as far as i know i have 5 people who are coming and a vegan cake! woot woot.

Okay, lets just meet up Wednesday for a good deadlift session? I can't go too heavy on these lately, but I can show you good form and they are the BEST workout for back! We'll also do some lats, maybe shoulder press, and some shrugs of course :D . Sound good?

As for your b-day, if there is cake and climbing you couldn't keep me away! ;)

Where you at? I haven't seen nor heard from you in a while.

Perhaps because I dropped off the face of this earth.

I got some kettlebells for Christmas. Once my shoulders are healed (probably springish) we should go out and test em :)
