Trained with intensity today , got to make sure them wrist straps are tight on Bent over rows, will record my deadlifts next week want to make sure my backs not rounding and I’m getting down low enough.
Over 7 Miles again on Cardio, and getting better at assisted pull ups. I CAN DO PULL UPS ON MY OWN. I CAN DO PULL UPS ON MY OWN, I CAN DO PULL UPS ON MY OWN that’s one of my goals!!
Have decided to switch to frozen veggies its going to make it so much easier for us at the minute, [/b] win win situation [/b] saves having to buy fresh veggies every few days especially with me not having a weekend for the next 5 weeks, matts dad coming from England next week, matt working strange shifts. Bought a big 1.75kg bag of veg $9.00 will still but 1kg bag of spinach as we just love the stuff!!

What was great about my day?

 Great Calves, Shoulder & abs workout
 Great Cardio over 7 miles again actually new record 7.13
 Did not have to rush to work as I was at the office near the gym
 Had an excellent stretch post workout
 Feeling awesome
 Attacked cardio like I do when lifting weights, I actually love doing it



What about my day could I improve to make things EVEN BETTER?

 Forgot to do weighted leg raises were so focused on hitting the weights!



What can I do to make things more enjoyable?

 Plan like its going to work out, and it will!!
 Spend more time with Mattpb

THERE ARE NO LIMITS ONLY THE ONES WE PUT ON OURSELVES



The discipline of writing something down is the first step toward making it happen.
Daily disciplines

Did I Eat 7 meals per day on time 4.45am, 7am, 9.00am, 11.00am, 1.00pm, 3.00pm, 5.00pm & 7.00pm? 5 so far

Did I train with Emotion, intensity and focus at the gym? Yes cardio and weights were great

Did I Listen to Motivational Audio or watch some, for 30 minutes today? Will listen to some at home while making meals and some at work

Did I read my Infofit/ACSM book for a minimum of 1 hour today? yes

Did I Practice at least one technique from my Personal Training course? Yes

Did I Read my bio before I leave for the gym? No damn give me a slap!! AGAIN!!

Did I Write down my 5 short terms goals in my journal Yes did them at work today







Abs, Calves and Shoulders

Cable Crunches 45/15 45/15
Weighted leg raises forgot to do them
Seated Calf Raises 170/6 170/6 I really tried to focus on using my calves, I have the best calves going!
Leg Press 215/8 215/8 these seemed easier managed 8 up up up
Standing Calf Press 105/8
Military Press (Smith) 35/4 35/4 these were tough today
Side laterals 22.5/5 22.5/6 focused on 2nd set to get 6
Rear Laterals 22.5/7 22.5/7 these felt easier than usual

Mass Machine Cardio distance 7.13 new record I knew at ten minutes I was going to beat my record I attacked the bike like I do with weights.

I AM PORTIA PHELPS PERSONAL TRAINER, MASS MACHINE AND A LEADER IN MY FIELD

Not sure what’s going on but feeling pretty tired recently but have to say been working full time, attending the PT course on the weekends, still doing my workouts not sure if it’s just catching up with me. This week’s workouts have been of a lesser intensity than the past 5-6 weeks.

Today was Triceps, Biceps and forearms

Triceps extension 25/8 25/8 25/8
Cable Pushdowns 52.5/6 52.5/6
DB tri extension 40/6
Barbell curls 50/5 50/8 50/8
Curl Bar Curls 35/5 35/5
Cable wrist curls 25/10 25/10
DB wrist curls 17.5/8 17.5/8

Mass machine cardio distance 6.94

I felt tired this morning them hurt my shoulder on my warm up for triceps so had to lower the weight a bit, it was still a decent workout but been feeling the effects of work etc.

So today was back but not Mass machine back workout, I have to be more flexible as I can’t train people the way I like to train so today and for the next few weeks I will be using my workouts to build my exercise bank, I can’t get a client to do something if I have never done it! Plus my shoulder is sore so didn’t want to lift heavy today, did seated rows, lat pulldown, bent over rows and some one arm rows on the cable with a squat, also some rotations of the torso on the cable.
I practiced the GXT test on myself today, will do this all week.
