Did the one set death challenge again. Thinking of making it the two set death challenge. Same weights to failure x2. I dunno. But then we run into time constraints. GAH! I dunno, I'll think of something. I just feel like I've still got more left to give after only one set to failure. Shooting for 8-12 reps. If I do more than 12, I'm doing it wrong.

what I did today,
Squat 200lb x 9 reps
Bench Press 130lb x 5 reps x 2 sets (no spotter makes this one scary...it's stupid because I know I can take 130 5x5)
Calf Raises 5 45's per side (568lb after weight of machine) 1x17
Leg Press same weight. 1 x 12 (I didn't think I'd get it back up, but I BARELY did)
Tri Pullovers 65lb 1 x 8
Leg Extension 170 x 12
Leg Curl 150 x 12
Deadlifts 200 x 10
Clean and Press 100 x 10
Shrug 200 x 10
Lat Pulldowns 115 x 10 (first time ever attempted)
Barbell Curls 80 x 8
Skull Crushers 50lb x 12 (first time ever attempted)
Machine Flys 110 x 8 (first time ever attemped)
Barbell Rows 95 x 12

That's all she wrote. In and out in an hour including warm up and cool down. Awesome.

STAIRS!

up the bleachers at a local college.
6 x up both toes every step (super little steps)
6x up one foot per step
6x up sides - 3 per leg. (push up on lead leg, drag rear up stairs)
Mountain climbers (find a bench, start with a toe on the bench and a foot on the ground, rotate -fast- x 30) 20 times for 3 reps twice.



Lots of 20 yard sprints. couple 40 yard sprints. 2 laps of the track. things of that nature. I need a shower and lunch now.
start at the 0 sprint to the 20 and back (this was a football field) x 6
start at the 2, sprint to the 20, do that funny side step hip thing (fuck if I remember what it's called. I'll find out next time) x 6
start at the 0, walk to the 10, jog to the 20, stride to the 30, accelerate to the 40 and sprint past the 50 to the other 40. x 3

I sure am a jerk to myself. I don't "rest" well...being active is too much fun!

Today I did an hour of BJJ. Starting to learn throws. kinda fun. And armbars. good stuff.

Then I got home. I thought about a nap, but then I thought I'd rather go work on the top body! So, I jogged to the gym (.7 miles)

then did another circuit. a top body one.

With a barbell (55lbs) I did Curls. overhead presses. barbell rows. uprights rows. Then I dropped the Barbell and grabbed 2 15lbs weights (ick! so little!) and did front and side lat raises. Then I threw a medicine ball (10 lbs) overhead and caught it.

I started with a set of ten, then a rest (2-3 minutes. too long), then a set of 8, then 6, then 4, then 2, then 4 again, then 6, then 8, then 10. Except the ball. I did the ball toss 20x per set regardless of how many reps of the other stuff I did.

It was awesome. Obviously a much shorter rest time on the 2 and 4 rep sets.

Then I jogged home. YAY! Time for protein!

thanks Chewy, and yes, a lack of energy is not a problem I have. Life was made for crushing, right? CRUSH IT!

thanks a lot guys! I haven't been running distance, though. I'm afraid to! I don't want to train to be slow! I need to train to be fast! (which is gonna get me in trouble in june for my MC200 experience... oh well)

Rugby practice wasn't too intense. I got there early and kicked the ball around a lot. Still trying to get it to go where i want it to (works well on a drop kick when I don't let it bounce of the ground first, but kicking it on the bounce is super hard!)

then warm ups (lots of jogging and dynamic stretching) then some catching/passing drills that aren't very intense physically, but mentally tough.

Then we did an awesome drill that had us running back and forth while catching and passing the ball. it'd be hard to explain on a computer, but it was awesome.

then we did some rucking drills! YAY HITTING! I'm not super small enough to worry about this sort of thing anymore. I made the loud pop noise happen when I hit two guys and the coach gave me props for that being "how it's supposed to sound" cause I did it right. That was awesome, cause I'm a rookie and don't REALLY know what I"m doing. It means I'm learning. I just hope I'm learning fast enough to play!

Anyhow. Two workouts in one day. It was awesome. Tomorrow is work and school and not much else.

Have a good night, y'all!

That's the way, we'll make a Pig out of you yet :)
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?
