10-15-2010 did both stronglifts and insanity back to back...lucky today was recovery day on insanity so it wasn't quite as insane.I am going to cut back on stronglifts to just twice a week for 60 days while i am doing insanity and i am going to cut out the abs and pushups on stronglifts cause i do enough of them in Insanity.so i am going to do Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Press, Overhead Press, Pull ups & Inverted Rows on the same day twice a week.the site says it will still work just make sure there is about a 2 1.2 - 3 day rest period between workouts but results will be slower.which is fine with me..

squats 5x5 105lbs
Overhead press 4x5, 1x4 70lbs
Deadlifts 3x5 150lbs
Chin Ups 120lb assistance 7,5,4
Prone Bridges 3 x 25lbs - failure

Day 4 of Insanity! > Cardio Recovery


todays is Pool time and Day 5 of Insanity! > Pure Cardio

I am going to start tracking what i eat on here too.yeah i need a juicer, i am planning on it sometime in the near future.

Todays planned. 2320 totoal cals
Breakfast : Bolthouse Amazing mango 16 oz (240 cals)
Snack: Chips and salsa (amy's organic) (325 cals)
lunch : Bolthouse farms 100% carrot juice 32 oz with 2 tablespoons red mills ground flaxmeal. (340 cals)
snack : Bolthouse Farms Green Goodness 16 oz with 2 scoops Vega Berry protein and wheatgrass powder(520 cals)
Dinner : Eden Organics Mexican Rice and Beans and Steamed Broccoli (435 cals)

decided today to do a hybrid workout of p90x and Insanity.It is becoming a real pain getting up at 3:30 to go to the gym.I am losing sleep and sleep is just as important as working out is.so for the time being i am going to go to the gym on the weekends for swimming and elliptical machines and racquetball and work on my pull ups.

I do plan on returning to the stronglifts workout sometime in the future.But right now overall fitness and cardio is my main goal..

Haven't posted in awhile, hurt myself at work so was doing just cardio for a couple weeks while my hand healed.Last couple of weeks I got myself a trainer at the gym that i will meet a couple times a month to check measurement, set goals, do a workout, keep me motivated, all the usual stuff.I noticed the last month and a half I started to slack a bit so I took the measure of accountability by getting myself a trainer.I decided to Hold off on stronglifts until the spring and decided to do a three cycle workout per week and go apeshit on the cardio.I think right now i need to pay attention with my core because of my bad posture of being out of shape for so long.And just work on overall stability and take advantage of the snow season coming up, lots of endurance walking/training in the snow.(getting a pair of snowshoes soon)

My weight workout will be something like this.Do this curcuit for about four months, Then start the Bulking! I realize i wont have a lot of muscle to show but for me that is ok because my main goal has always been to be fit overall.I want to be able to run again without my achiles crapping out on me, swim, all the stuff I haven't done since High School.
Legs, Abs and Core
Chest Shoulders and Triceps
Back and Bicep


My cardio Options will be..
Insanity Videos ( just doing the videos not in no real order or following the program, at least not yet..too much for my fitness level right now to even try and follow the guidelines)
Spinning Biking - Bought this last spring for the sole purpose of keeping myself fit(ter) when winter came about, well it is here.time to get busy!!
Cardio Equipment and classes at the Gym
and last but not least Snowshoeing/Hiking

Finishing what i started..yeah right..stepped on the scale this morning for the first time in a month and i gained 10 pounds the last month (204), and that ain't muscle..really pissed at myself right now..Diet has been shit, Working out has been sporadic at best.I am a pacifist at heart but i really want to kick my ass right now.....

anyways went to the gym this morning (first time in a month) and i am starting stronglifts 5x5 back up again, I made a huge mistake last time when i stopped,and I think i am going to add some core filler to the workout.Like today I added some stuff that i saw on a couple Crossfit workout like holding a 45 pound plate over my head and walk around..

Anyways I am going to do a 2-3 day juice fast to clean this shit out and detox myself a bit until new years then it is nothing but Quinoa, Water, Greens, Protein Powder and Fruits...
