Group ride with the local bike shop.

20 miles in 1:16:18 with an average of 15.7.
Good ride and had a great average going until we hit some tough hills. Brought down my average but I need to ride out those hills to get better.

So I fell off the wagon a bit. Between wanting to eat regular food and being busy being a dad things just got carried away. Ihave been riding my bike like a maniac (about 450 miles so far this year) when the weather permits but the gym was kind of put on hold.
But not anymore!

Monday I restarted my 12 week workout plan from day 1. Starting to eat better in general (not as strict as before but still clean/healthy). Just ignore the two donuts and 7 ginger o's I ate tonight. To be honest I feel better after a solid workout and eating good as hell. Tonight I am just not feeling that. That's what I get for eating some bad stuff today.

Anyway... My weight never went high or anything like that. This morning I weighed in at 212.4. I sadly lost some muscle mass and gained some fat from when I was at my peak.

A couple of other things I am changing... I am actually going to take days off and let my body rest properly. I won't eat like crap (like I did today) but just carry on with my regular day. All of my cardio will be cycling based. I love it too much and I have a goal of 1500 miles to meet by the end of the riding season.

So here are my workouts from the past two days.

Well... I have been lazy once again. Not hitting the gym consistently or riding my bike like I should be.
I have only put in maybe 50 miles in the past week or so on the bike. The weather is much nicer now so that is going to change.

I am also getting back to the basics with my lifting. I pulled out my copy of the encyclopedia of modern bodybuilding and am started the basic program in there. A couple of years ago I followed this and start getting huge then fell off again. I have a real issue with that that I need to work on.
Anyway here was my workout today...

DB Bench
15x45
12x55
8x60
8x65

Fly Machine
15x90
12x105
10x120
8x150

Incline BB Bench
15x45
12x75
10x85
6x110

Bent Over BB Rows
15x65
12x85
10x125
8x145

Lat Pull Down
15x80
12x110
12x130
12x170

DEADS
10x135
6x185
3x225

Crunches
5 sets of 25

Food wise I kept things simple. Protein shakes, oats, 1 banana, NOW Carbo Gain, seitan, broccoli and sweet potatoes. I still have a salad to eat today and a protein shale before bed.

Arms and shoulders tomorrow.

What up! So I've been reading your post over the past couple of days because I'm starting Kris' workout program on Monday. I've got some questions if you don't mind answering. Do you take ALL the supplements you first listed? Have you omitted any/added any? What does a daily meal ALWAYS consist of? Any tips or tricks to tell those of us interested in this workout program? The supplements are a bit of concern for me because it looks like a lot, and I'm pretty damn poor, haha. I put all of those things in a shopping cart at bodybuilding.com and saw the checkout price and said "well fuck that" and closed the page. If this post seems ridiculous I apologize, I've never posted on a forum or anything before. Thanks for your time, keep up the good work, and I love the tattoos.

Working figuring out a workout plan that is a good mix of cycling and weight lifting.
Did my 2nd race this past weekend. Didn't do so hot but I still finished and had fun. Stepping up my game now.
