5 minutes of jump rope to warm up and a few stretches and movements to make sure my chest was nice and limber. Today I felt a very small disturbance in my shoulder blade so I held back on chest once again to make sure my shoulder blade recovers to 100%

this is frustrating.

8lb crunches, 2x20

legs elevated crunches. 1x20, 1x15

oblique crunches 2x15 each side

leg raises 2x15

reverse crunches 2x15

push-throughs 2x20

side crunches 1x25

First chest day in a long while. I had fun and all I wanted to do was frantically do as many push ups as possible but I knew better and took it a little easy to see what I'm made off and to ease myself back into what I was doing. I just got on the floor with the iron gym.

5min of jump rope to warm up

wide grip iron gym pushups, 3 sets 1x20, 1x15, 1x14
narrower iron gym pushups 1 set of 15. still a little cautious from my injured shoulder blade. I feel fine though

pull ups 4x5


cute.

I did the same as two days ago because I am still exited about my shoulder being healed and getting back on track with chest workouts.

wide push ups with correct form, 1x20, 1x18, 1x15
narrower push ups, 1x15, 1x10. So gnarly, I did some pull-ups as well but I must still be weak from last time. Not many were done but I did the absolute best I could.

Body-weight squats 2x50. I was really tired after I did these so if I don't do cardio later today I'll do it tomorrow.

I put some yet another twist on how I train a rather minute one though. I did dips instead of my other tricep stuff. I am treating them like pushups just doing as many as I can.

10minute run and some stretching, light stuff to make sure I was limber

bicep curl bar
1x10 10lbs each side
15lbs each side, 3x10 1x9

hammer curls
15lbs with the same bar, 3x10

I did 5 sets of dips to failure.

25 minute run afterward.

Freak Out!

Today I did a gnarly fun circuit with some boxing in between each run-through.
Pullups until failure immediately down on the floor for some dips until failure and on my back for crunches. I stretched for about 30 seconds and shadow boxed for a few minutes. Then repeated this twice but on the third time I did my crunches with my legs at a 90 degree angle.

Hey Saulo, first of all i wanted to say that I really dig the name of the journal. It's awesome.

Second, not down on it, but where did you get your routine? That's certainly in intense routine, but it's not a get big routine. With what you're doing you're going to be strong and have a lot of muscular endurance, but I think you'd be better served (and get bigger and stronger) if you did more compound lifts and less isolation with more weight and less reps.

I understand the desire to not get hurt. That's big. But maybe just try a program like stronglifts or starting strength for a few weeks and see how you feel doing it.

Also, how many calories (approx) a day are you eating?

I joined a gym this week

I worked out my abs and did bodyweight squats and lunges. I anticipate some good feeling in my legs tomorrow

EDIT: I don't know how many calories I take every day but my guess is around 2500
