Posting daily is beginnning to be redundant for my type of workout. So, it makes more sense to keep my schedule updated.

I have decided to compete in figure comps. I think it'll help keep me focused and give me something to work towards.
Here's the schedule. I'm not looking to be a power lifter, I want to continue to add muscle and definition. My current routine has reps of 10-8-6-6, the last rep of each is very hard but I do not lift to failure. Weight is only increased if the reps are coming too easy.

DAY 1:
Hammer Curls 10-8-6-6
Tri Pull Downs 10-8-6-6
Barbell Curls 10-8-6-6
Tri Kick Backs 10-8-6-6
weighted crunches

30 min Interval Training on Treadmill

DAY 2:
Deads 10-8-6-6
Bench 10-8-6-6
Lat Raises 10-8-6-6
Wide Grip Lat pull downs 10-8-6-6
Dumbbell Shoulder Press 10-8-6-6

30 min Interval Training on Treadmill

DAY 3:
Squats 10-8-6-6
Seated Calf Raises 10-8-6-6
Leg Extensions 10-8-6-6
Standing Calf Raises 10-8-6-6
Leg Curls 10-8-6-6

30 min Interval Training on Treadmill

DAY 4:
30 min Interval Training on Treadmill
ABS
Lower Ab Crunches 50
Upper Ab Crunches 50
Oblique Crunches 50 each side

DAY 5: REST

Eating:
I have been high raw and have come off raw. When I came off I was fine for a few days, but then started to feel sluggish. So I am incorportaing raw food back in, as I feel best then.

Coffee
Water
Grapefruit
Protein Shake w/flax oil
Raw Salad, Green Tea
Protein Shake
Raw Veggies, water

I'll shake this routine up in a few weeks or when I feel it isn't as effective.

UPDATE DEC 5th:
Workouts are going well, but dread the cold weather on the deck to push weights. Last work out was sooo painful, my hands kept giving me grief, they hurt so bad from the cold. Going to work on enclosing the deck for the winter months when I get back from my brief vacation over the weekend.

Other than that, the work outs are coming easier and easier. Still making progress so not time to change yet. Need to start pushing towards comp. I need to do research and set a goal and time span.

Very stressful time, good to take it out on the weights...keeps me sane.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TODAY
My brief vacation left me exhausted. Who knew days of walking would be so tiring??!! It was interesting, eating was NP and I ran into some real life vegans. They gave themselves away with their shirts which read "Vegan" and I am very astute like that.

Other than the walking (which I don't consider a workout), I have not been in a position to work out. So, I'll get a lousy leg day in today after work to pick up where I left off.

Decided to post because I can't keep track of my intake lately.

Coffee, Banana
Coffee, raw spinach
a couple seed crackers
water after work out
Don't have anything coming up and the beer store has the holiday beers in....so I caved. I'm soooo weak!
Wasn't hungry for dinner.

Hammer Curls 10-8-6-6
Tri Pull Downs 10-8-6-6
Barbell Curls 10-8-6-6
Tri Kick Backs 10-8-6-6
weighted crunches

30 min Interval Training on Treadmill

Busy, busy, busy at work because of the holidays and haven't made it to tan. Hurts my mood, so I'll try to get there before I take someone head off or go into hibernation....whichever comes first.

Tri Pull Downs 10-8-6-6
Barbell Curls 10-8-6-6
Tri Kick Backs 10-8-6-6
weighted crunches

Interestingly, I didn't feel any stronger and the workout didn't feel "good" (not bad either). But, I had to add weight or it was too easy. So, therefore, still making progress with this routine.

Not sure on the food, yesterday was crunch day at work for the Holidays. So I was just grabbing something when I could...but stayed raw except drinks (cofee, coffee, coffee :wink: )

Believe it or not, I'll actually have a little bit more time during the day, today and tomorrow. So I may see if I can get an extra session in (especially since I'll be eating Christmas Dinner)

Workouts are pretty strong, so I am happy with the continued progression. 8)

30 min interval training today

30 min cardio intervals on tread
ab routine

coffee
banana
spinach salad (etc)
girls wanted Chinese, so steamed veggies and rice

Very strong run tonight. But routine is getting stagnant. I'm switching it up for the coming weeks. I have a full body routine around here somewhere from Daywalker (maybe?), going to try to dig it up and jump in again. 8)
