It was an interesting 30 days for me full of changes.

From my lightest weigh in at the beginning of the month to my heaviest near the end I gained 10lbs!

A lot of this is probably water weight as I seem to be averaging around 171lbs now and was around 168lbs then. Still making progress.

I also increased my 1RM on bench from 200lbs to 210lbs, and deadlift from 280lbs to 300lbs.

It was helpful being able to see what other people were doing on the site and I will definitely be sticking around.

I have had a setback in my training in the form of a pulled muscle in my back around my right shoulder blade. I'm trying to give this time to heal. The injury only seems to get aggravated when I do dips, so I will just hold off for now. Besides that everything is fine and I plan on pushing forward and getting it done.

Thank you for all of your support Robert!

Today's Training:

Weight: 168 lbs

Cardio:
Assorted running drills + 2 mile jog for a total of 30 minutes excercise

Strength Training: Back and Biceps

Assorted cardio excercises performed during rest time between sets and excercises. 1 minute rest times.

Pullups: 5, 8, 5, 5, 8
Dumbbell Rows: 70 x 8, 70 x 8, 70 x 8
Lat Pulldowns: 140 x 8, 140 x 8, 140 x 8, 140 x 10
Dumbbell Shrugs: 70 x 8, 70 x 8, 70 x 8, 70 x 12
Dumbbell Curls: 35 x 8, 35 x 8, 35 x 8
Cable Curls: 70 x 8, 70 x 8, 60 x 10
Preacher Curl Machine: 70 x 8, 70 x 10, 70 x 10

Notes: This is my first time fully implementing cardio acceleration techniques during my strength sessions, and the effect was a whole lot of sweat! The trick seems to be in utilizing the right excercises so that I can maintain an elevated heart rate without getting completely gassed and losing strength. So far, jump roping, bench step ups and jumping lunges are in, and high knee jumps are out!
