Today I completed 3 interviews so I'm pretty pleased about that. Two were for European Magazines and both were quite long interviews and the third one was a podcast interview for about 45 minutes over the phone. I rambled a bit and was aware of it during the interview, but oh well. There are many more. In fact, I'm really enjoying the radio interviews, discussions, debates, etc. so I plan to do a lot more in the coming months
After spending a lot of time writing most of the day, I also shipped a few things and then of course Lean and Green and I hit up the gym.
Today my workout was back and shoulders.
It looked a little like this:
Dumbbell lateral raises x 6 sets
Dumbbell front raises x 5 sets
Dumbbell rear delt raises x 4 sets
Dumbbell overhead press x 6 sets
T-bar rows x 4 sets wide grip
T-bar rows x 4 sets narrow grip
Wide grip pull-ups x 4 sets
Narrow grip pull-ups x 4 sets
Dumbbell shrugs x 4 sets
Nearly 40 sets but I kept the pace up and finished in less than an hour or just about exactly an hour.
Lean and Green trained some of the same exercises with me. We talked trash because for most exercises I'm stronger but weigh less. He's stronger on legs and some back exercises but I think I've got him everywhere else. He's gunning for me since I got a head start making my return to the gym in August compared to his return in about November or December. We both find ways to let our actions shut the other up and it's all for fun and with smiles and fist bumps, high fives and hugs.
Then we made a massive dinner.....something I'm still working on finishing as I type this while he falls asleep preparing for a long day tomorrow.
We made a kale salad with nuts and raisens, potatoes with Daiya vegan cheese and soy curls and I snacked on a few other things while we prepared food, mostly fruit. He may have had a shake.
Anyway, good times, productive day, so pleased to get those 3 interviews done and have another article to finish asap and then many more to write, along with my new book of course too.
My book dropped a little on Amazon rankings but the rankings change hourly so no big deal. When more interviews and reviews coming out it will pick right back up.
As my tours continue and as I move to Texas, Florida or California and get in a new environment I imagine book sales will pick up then too.
I'm still in the low 180's in bodyweight but working on compound lifts and eating. Progress is coming, even if it is slow, it is steady. A pic from a few days ago:
Peace out. Have a great weekend everyone!
