Busted out a quick workout at home while watching TV with my fiance.


All exercises performed with 25# DBs.
Dual Overhead Carry
30 seconds
1 Overhead Carry + 1 Farmer Carry
30 seconds
1 Overhead Carry + 1 Farmer Carry (switched sides)
30 seconds
1 Farmer Carry
30 seconds

4 rounds total

Then:
1-arm Hang Clean and Jerk
@25# x 10 (each side)
@25# x 10 (each side)
@25# x 10 (each side)

Crunches
x 30
x 30
x 30

Pretty short, but glad I got something in today. The overhead carries were pretty sweet. Really worked my abs more than anticipated.

Way to make it happen.

What's the most important word in the world? Consistency.

Go for it!

I've been logging all my workouts in my iPhone, but keep forgetting to post them. Here's Monday.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Trained at the 24 Hour by my work in the Pearl today. Feeling very motivated and hoping for an awesome week. Today I'm working on reping heavy and trying to see if I can stick a 135# press next week or the week after. Small steps. Next step after that will be pressing bodyweight (and 135# WAS my bodyweight in December).

Bench Press
45# x 20
65# x 10
95# x 5
115# x 4
115# x 4
105# x 5
105# x 6
105# x 3
95# x 5

Decline DB Press
25# x 10
30# x 8
30# x 8

I missed Tuesday and Wednesday, but here's Thursday:
------------------------------------------
Fed up after missing two days in a row. Started counting calories today. My goal is 3,000+ calories and 150grams of protein. Don't know if that's enough or too much. I'll have to look into it more later.

Squat!
45# x 10
95# x 6
115# x 6
135# x 6
155# x 2 (not satisfied with depth)
155# x 1 (okay depth)
135# x 3 (great depth)
115# x 6
115# x 6
115# x 6

Front Squat!
65# x 6
65# x 8
75# x 8
75# x 8-10 (lost count)

Nutrition:

Toast, butter, jam 460 12p
Raw Mac cracker 100 2p
Toast, butter, jam 460 12p
Banana 105 1p
Banana 105 1p
Carob Chips 140 4p
Bar 180 7p
Kidney bean can 330 21p
2 Tofurky Sausage 540 58p
Soy Protein 110 25p
Banana 105 1p
Total: 2,635 Calories, 144 grams protein. Close to the goal. Should have eaten more once I got home.

Cool man!

It's good to know what your numbers are. How are we to adapt or change or improve if we don't know what we've done previously or what we're currently doing? Recording some basic numbers such as estimated caloric intake, fluid intake, grams of protein, supplements used, length of workout and workout frequency are all helpful to reflect upon at anytime.

All the best man!

I leave on Friday. Then only back a few times the rest of the year....including The Big Day! :)

Peace!

PS, I'm passing on my free weight torch to you. I'll go visit my mother Mon or Tue this week and get some weights from the basement to bring to your house before I head out of town. I may need to take the elastic band back since I can use it on the road...or I can pick one up at a sporting goods store along my journey too.

Thanks for all your help with my book. It is kicking butt and will continue to do so :)

I have weights for you :)

Let's meet up. I canceled my Canada trip so I can focus all my time, money and energy on my Worldwide Book Campaign. Got weights from my mom's house to give to you, and would love to get in another workout and also work on site. I leave in 10 days.

Have a great week!

Hey RC! Been swamped at work (in a good way) but haven't been able to commit to anything yet. Let me hit you up this weekend and let you know when we can train. Maybe Tuesday.

Yesterday's training:

Deadlift
95# x 15 for warmup
135# x 8
135# x 8
135# x 8
155# x 1
185# x 1
205# x 1
225# x 1
230# x 1 (new PR)
205# x 1
135# x 8
135# x 8
135# x 8

Today's training:
Turkish Get Up
25# x 5 each side
25# x 5 each side
25# x 5 each side
20# x 5 each side

Clean squat and press
(so much fun, this combination)
65# x 5
75# x 5
65# x 5
65# x 5
65# x 5


Sauna afterward

Training plan for today was to take it easy and work on super full body movements. Turned out to be really challenging but a good break from working on the major lifts. Up till now, I've just been worried about getting bench, squat, overhead press and Deadlift session every week. Now that I'm getting more consistent, I have to plan what to do on my fifth or sixth workouts. Pretty nice problem to have. Lol.

Good work with your training man!

No worries. I know you're busy. I'm just relentless in my pursuit of things that mean a lot to me. Trust me, there are few people I go out of my way to see. ;)

I mean that. I stick to myself and rarely venture out aside from my tours, but I want to see you before I go. I leave in a week.

All the best. Hammer it hard! Find meaning in what you're doing. I'm passing on some weights to you because I've seen that fire that you have, which I mentioned last time we trained together. Most people don't have "it." When I find those who do, I have to support all I can.

See you soon!

Make it happen

RC
