Intense cardio session today.

A whole bunnnnnch of jump ropes.

Did about 20 30 seconds sprint intervals at the end with only 20 seconds recovery between.

Had my first imitator at the gym today, atleast, the first I have ever been aware of.

While I was doing my sprint intervals in the circuit training room which has a interval clock set to 30 secs with 20 sec rest periods another dude grabbed a jump rope and started doing the same thing as me. He tried to battle me and show me up but wasn't able to keep up. He ended up quitting and leaving to go do something else and I kept on going.

Went back and did some jump rope intervals again.

Made it to 121 in 30 seconds, but it was at the end of my second workout of the day. I had one where my pace was at about 135-140 in 30 seconds but got tripped up with about 12 seconds to go.

Light Romanian and Standard BB Deadlifts to show my friend how to do them properly.

Chest day with my friend. I wish I could work out with someone who knows what they are doing. I dont trust him spotting me on heavier lifts at all. Not only because he is new but because of his strength, or lack of it.

Jump rope warm ups

Stretches

Incline BB Bench:
45x12, 135x12, 155x5 (dont trust him so hung it up), 95x12 (to show him form again)

Incline DB Press:
30sx12, 50sx12, 70sx8, 75sx3

Neutral Close Grip Flat DB Press:
30sx12, 40sx12, 50sx11

This one seems to put a lot less stress on my shoulder than a traditional flat bench. It still hurt a little but not like when I do flat bench nowadays. A lot more triceps involved.

Incline DB Fly: (FST-7)
20sx15 reps x all 7 sets

Big improvement from the last time I did these on march 30th (did 15sx15 for first 6 sets and then 20sx15 for set 7)

I am actually supposed to use the Pec Dec for my FST-7 on chest day but some bro dude was hogging tht up for a good 20 minutes so we made due with what we could.

Followed up with 30 second HIIT jump rope intervals with 20 seconds rest inbetween. I think I did like 15-20 sets maybe. I know I upped my Personal Best to 128 jumps in 30 seconds from 121 yesterday.

Back today. Felt pretty strong.

9-10 30 second jump rope intervals to warm up.

Stretch

Bent Over BB Rows:
45x12, 135x12, 190x6, 140x12, 45x12

Super Wide Lat Pulldowns:
75x12, 105x12, 135x10

One Arm DB Rows: per each arm
30x12, 50x12, 70x12, 100x4

DB Russian Twists:
10x40, 15x40, 20x40

DB Romanian Deadlifts: (db in each hand)
50sx12, 70sx12, 90sx8

I love these. I look awesome when I do them and they are much harder than the BB version due to no mixed grip.

DB Pullovers: (FST-7)
40 lb db x 7 sets of 15 reps, 30 seconds of rest between sets only.

I was able to just barely maintain at 40 lbs today. Last week had to drop down to 35 for last 2-3 sets.

Messed around with some jump rope tricks.

Broke the string on my workout shorts so I couldnt do speed ropes because it made my pants fall down!

I am so happy right now.

Image

First time under 200 since probably like 7th grade. Hard work pays off.

Got 3 readings of 199.0 and 3 of 198.4 so right in there.

Needless to say I had a fucking awesome workout after seeing the scale today.

Shoulders today. My Triceps were sore as hell, possibly from pullovers yesterday. But I dont care, give me the weight.

Jump rope intervals

Stretch

Seated DB Press:
30sx12, 50sx12, 60sx12

Didnt go super heavy on these today since I came very close to hurting myself badly last week.

Plate Front Raises:
25x12, 45x10 (+1), 45x9

Upped PR by 1 rep.

Bent Over Rear DB Raises:
10sx15, 15sx15, 20sx15

DB Shrugs: (one in each hand)
40sx12, 60sx12, 80sx12, 115sx5, 100sx12

That set of 115s was brutal. Grip was so difficult. I think that gave out before my traps and shoulders. 100s felt like childs play after those.

DB Standing Lateral Raises: (fst-7)
12.5sx15 reps, 7 sets, 30 secs rest between

Barely made it through these today. FST-7 is the best and worst thing ever. It is a headgame to the fullest.

Followed up by:

Jump rope intervals

30" and 24" box jumps

Some explosive jumps

Side jumps and ice skaters

Sprint interval speed rope for a few sets

Finally had a full leg day for the first time in 3 maybe 4 weeks. They felt pretty strong still too.

Jump ropes

Stretches

Smith Squats: (all to parallell)
45x12, 135x12, 225x12, 275x10, 315x6, 365x3

Weighted DB Walking Lunges:
25sx16, 40sx12, 60sx10, 40sx12, BWx20, BWx16, 30sx12

Weighted Step Ups: (barbell added on shoulders)
100 lb bb x 20 reps x 3 sets

Romanian DB Deadlift: (db in each hand)
50sx12, 50sx12, 70sx12, 90sx10, 100sx6

These are so intense. No mixed grip to save me. Phew. It is every arm for itself.

Machine Leg Curls:
75x12, 90x12, 105x10

And thats when t left knee started hurting on the last two sets. Staying away from these for a while. Plus the machine is stupid and the part that is supposed to stay at your achilles is free moving instead of stationary.

Machine Leg Extensions: (FST-7)
45x15, 45x15, 45x15, 45x15, 45x15, 45x15, 60x15

These are still aweful with light weight. Only 30 seconds of "rest", aka stretching the already tired muscle, between each set.

Jump ropes to make my legs not feel like jello.

Feels good to be back baby.
