Today we had a really nice forum gathering in Portland, OR. I saw some people I hadn't seen in a long time. Off the top of my head we had Aaron, bvp663, Lean and Green, thendanisays, Tanya, JasonM, and me, as well as a handful of non-forum members who joined us for veggie sushi
I think I have Jason's screen name posted incorrectly but as usual, it's late at night so I won't look it up at this time.
Brian and I trained arms and abs today. It was about an hour and 5 or an hour and 10 minutes long with little to no breaks. After each set of arms we'd do an ab exercise, then back to arms, back to abs, etc. for the full hour+.
We started with bunch of warm-up push-ups, hanging leg raises and reverse grip pull-ups.
Then we moved to EZ curl bicep curls followed by hanging leg raises. We did 4 sets of each.
Then we did alternating dumbbell bicep curls for 3 sets with hanging leg raises after each set. After that we did 3 sets of alternating dumbbell hammer curls, again followed by 3 sets of leg raises or bridge static holds for abs.
We moved on to triceps and did dumbbell triceps kickbacks followed by decline sit-ups or bridge static holds. We did 3 sets and then moved on to dumbbell two-hand overhead triceps extensions, again super setting with ab exercises. After that we did 3 sets of dips, also super-setting with decline sit-ups or bridge static holds.
We finished with more push-ups.
No basketball today because the gym closed early so I think we're meeting in the morning for an hour of hoops before watching the Jets game.
After that we watched Forks Over Knives with a forum group, then went out to dinner and ate as much sushi as we could handle
I also did some writing today, finished a foreword for someone else' book yesterday and have a couple of magazine interviews to finish asap.
I'll work on adding photos to my journal. I know that will make it more exciting. It has just been a busy week, lots of movie promoting, etc.
Have a great weekend everyone!
