  1. Hey dude. Yeah kinda quiet around these parts 'cept for Rob and me! Welcome back!
  2. I think. Dude had short blond hair, and was kind of whiny throughout. Still huge though, and looked like a death march of a session. That's crazy they both died so soon and in such close proximity. Were they twins? Curious about the bod pod. Is that the displacement measurement of body fat? Have a good night brother.
  3. Wednesday, June 8, 2016: Chest/Arms Circuit - 4 Rounds, Rest 2 Minutes 1. TRX Fly x 20 2. Ring Dips x 12 3. Cross-Curls x 15* @ 70lbs 4. Tricep Ext. x 15 5. TRX Army Press x 20 6. Hammer Curl x 15* @ 70lbs Still didn't fee like climbing under a bar tonight. Maybe it's good to de-load once in a while and just do some volume. This was pretty good feeling and didn't take too long given I got home later than usual. Wife left me some cookies so I had to have those before hitting the session. I guess those can sub as a decent pre-workout snack. Usually it's a banana. Woke up insanely tired this morning, and even though today was not over the top as usual, I'm ready for bed all before 7:30pm. That's enough screen-time for today. Cardio/core tomorrow.
  4. Indeed mate, and today my adductors are screaming! Yes man the job is terrible, but thankfully slow at the moment. I'm a bit of a workaholic so I tend to get nervous when I'm not extremely busy. It's just that because I hate what I'm doing that it makes the busy times that much worse. And yeah man, with this job I could be anywhere and asked to work. Miserable existence. Hope you're doing well too buddy.
  5. Man this reminds me of seeing your HIT guy training this huge mother on the dip machine and it just looked so horrible lol. Also, lately I've been getting a lot of hydration from watermelon. Trips to the toilet galore!
  6. Tuesday, June 7, 2016: Legs - 3 Rounds, Rest 3 Minutes (TRX unless weight noted, or HIIT) 1. Bodyweight Squats x 20 2. Side Lunge x 20* 3. Squat Jump x 15 @ 70lbs 4. Bulgarian Split Squat x 15* 5. High Knees x 50 6. Hamstring Curls x 20 7. Hurdle Sprints x 12 8. Squat Jacks x 15 Gonna be sore tomorrow! Pretty decent training, at least for burning calories. Enjoyed this session. Will do more of these into the future. Getting under the bar is getting boring anyhow. I'm in bed now and need some rest. Chest and arms tomorrow.
  7. Thursday, June 2, 2016: Core/Cardio 0. Rower x 750m Circuit (3 rounds each, rest 2 minutes) 1. Sprint - 4 x 40m with parachute 2. Jump Rope x 100 3. Bicycle Abs x 50 - 4. Football Drills x 4 5. Heisman Dash x 25 6. Leg Raise Thrust x 15 Pretty solid training today. The parachute really kicks my ass. Glad I bought that, but I wish I had more room to let loose. Kept catching it on stuff. Had no appetite after training which is weird. Probably stress related. Back to the shit with this job, and even on a short week. Actually, there hasn't been a week since I started that I didn't leave extremely frustrated or stressed. Fuck I hate that place. Ready to get some free time this weekend. I hope they leave me alone. It's some bullshit that they can basically ask me to work at any given moment. Even in the middle of the night, I'd be expected to work. Weekends too. I had one partner say "have you ever kept a sleeping bag at your desk? Because I have." What a fucking idiot. Fuck him, fuck them, let's get out of this shitbox town.
  8. Wednesday, June 1, 2016: Chest/Arms 0. Rower - 750m 1. Incline Bench - 3 x 15 @185lbs 2. Hammer Curls - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs 3. Plyo-Push-up - 3 x 12 - 4. Pullover - 3 x 12 @ 75lbs 5. Tricep Ext. - 3 x 15 6. EZ Curls - 3 x 12 @ 75lbs Good training today. Less intense than yesterday. Need to find more power exercises for chest and arms. Kind of hard to get the heart rate up doing these. Otherwise an ok day. No soreness from yesterday either. Kind of surprised. Will do cardio and some core work tomorrow and save back and shoulders for Saturday. Pumped for this week's end.
  9. Tuesday, May 31, 2016: Legs 0. Rower - 750m 1. Squats - 3 x 12 @ 300lbs 2. Squat Jump - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs 3. High Knees - 3 x 50 - 4. Bridge - 3 x 15* @ 45lbs 5. Squat Jacks - 3 x 15 @ 35lbs 6. Sprint/Hurdles - 3 x 12 Pretty solid training today. Was nice to get back into action after a few days of indulgence and rest. I really needed the rest. Enjoyed the mix of strength/power/HIIT in this session. Good to keep me on my toes, and burn off some of this flab that has accumulated through stress. Will continue with this until I get bored or stop seeing results. Good day today. Chest/arms tomorrow.
  10. Weekend trip was a blast and much needed. Went completely off diet and ate whatever/whenever. Lots of pizza, dessert, beers, etc. countered that by doing weighted dips and pull-ups whenever possible at the place we were staying. Also went on 2-3 hour walks each night, and pretty much walked everywhere during the day so I don't think it was a total disaster. Must get a dip bar and weight belt. Going to crush legs tomorrow and get back on track. Thinking o my selling the rower to get a treadmill.
  11. Tuesday, May 24, 2016: Legs. 0. Rower - 750m 1. Squat - 3 x 12 @ 300lbs 2. Squat Jump - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs 3. High Knees - 3 x 50 - 4. Side Lunge - 3 x 12* @ 95lbs 5. Squat Jacks - 3 x 12 @ 35lbs 6. Reverse Lunge Kick - 3 x 12* Pretty good training today. I had more energy today than I usually do when I get home from work which was nice. I enjoyed combining the strength and power exercises together, as always. Doing the sets in giant Sadds really helps to maintain Peak intensity, and reduce overall time spent in the gym. I think I will keep with this set up for a few weeks. Going to sleep well tonight since I got up around 430 this morning. Looking forward to a long weekend off too. Madison bound for some time outside of the city. Hope it doesn't rain the whole time, but even then I'll be ok getting wet. Chest/arms tomorrow.
  12. I'm an attorney practicing in commercial litigation. I'd rather be doing corporate work.
  13. Saturday, May 21, 2016: TRX Day 3 Rounds, Rest 2 Minutes 1. Chest Press x 15 2. Row x 15 3. Dips x 15 4. Curls x 15 5. T's x 15 6. Bulgarian Split Squat x 15 7. Hamstring Curl x 15 8. Pull-ups x 15 Feeling better today. Made a decision on Friday that I plan to follow through on. That includes following a different professional path than I'm on right now. I need time to slow down, and I need more time to enjoy rather than just working all the time. There has to be more balance. Spent a lot of time outside today on the yard and plants. It was much needed not only for the yard but for my sanity. I wish I had followed a differs life path that included more physical work like farming or landscaping. I'm really good at growing things and keeping things alive. Definitely should've been a farmer. Right now I'm just listening to the sound of the sprinkler water hitting each blade of grass as it goes by. It's perfect. I can actually feel it turn.
  14. So tonight I did one round of five things on the TRX bands. I just couldn't focus. My job is horrible. I hate what I'm doing. I hate where we live. I feel like packing up the car and driving away. I feel like I'm waiting on something good, which never comes, and that I'm not leading my own life. I feel trapped by my student loan debt. I feel the outside pressure and expectation to continue in this career that I only find moderately interesting on the best days. On the worst days, I could just follow my desk out the window. It's pretty cruel that I thought I would be happier and richer after school, but I'm the opposite. I'm miserable. I'm ignoring my debt, mainly because I can't afford it, and it's only growing and growing at a rate where it will be impossible to pay back. In all honesty, it will probably end up wiping out any retirement I pull together. Not a good day today.
  15. Lol dude knowing your height and size I'd have held my tongue. He's probably wishing you were a client, as I've found most trainers to be bored with the "regular" clients. Looks like you're training huge as always brother. Hope you're doing well otherwise.
  16. Wednesday, May 18, 2016: LEGS 0. Rower - 1000m 1. Squat - 3 x 12 @ 295lbs 2. Squat Jump - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs 3. High Knees - 3 x 50 - 4. Hamstring Curl - 3 x 20 @ 45lbs 5. Lunge Jumps - 3 x 20 @ 70lbs 6. Tuck Jump - 3 x 20 Wow can't believe it's been this long since I've last posted. I've been working a ton and by the time I'm done training and eating, I'm pretty much ready for bed. I trained full body on the TRX on Tuesday, which was short but pretty intense. Today I was short on time again, so I decided to do this in giant sets. Really forces a ramp up in intensity, but a little longer rest periods. Haven't hit a heavier squat in a week or two so it was nice to get under he bar. This even felt a little easy, and probably could have gone for 15 reps or higher weight. Oh well, next time. Nice to be back. I'll do chest/arms tomorrow, and will definitely post!
  17. Hey mate: Doing well. I have been neglecting to post purely because we don't have a good computer at home, at least one that's accessible while I eat dinner (right after training, when I used to post). I'll bite the bullet and buy a new laptop soon and start posting again. I'm just lazy lol. Hope you are well buddy.
  18. Thursday, May 5, 2016: Atypical update. Trained legs on Wednesday. Killed it. Reverse lunges, lunge jumps, sumo squats, squat jumps, hamstring curls and log jumps. Rower, too. Squats were too easy at 285 for 3x15. Legs development is great but need to work on fat reduction. Midsection and chest are problem areas. Today trained chest and arms. 150 push-ups, heavy curls and tricep work. Other chest exercises as well. Thought more about getting into calisthenics and body weight training. Weights have become a little boring , so that makes more sense. Bet I will see some kind of shift for the better if I change things up. Can't stop eating frozen mango chunks from trader joes. Just too delicious. Tired. Need a new computer as typing these on my phone is a real pain, especially in the format I've been doing for so long. Rest tomorrow. Back/shoulders on Saturday.
  19. Tuesday, May 2, 2016: Rest Day 0. Rower - 1250m Well I got home late, and was just so tired from the day. I had no energy to even rack the weights. So, I just hit up the rower for a short bit and tried to make it count. Did 50 pull-ups yesterday, so it's not a completely wasted week so far. I wish I had more energy. I used to train so much harder, and for longer. Where did that all go? I know I'm spending a lot of energy stressing over this shitty job. I fucking hate what I do. It's just pointless. I wish I were doing something more collaborative than combative. The constant fighting is just boring after even the shortest while. There's got to be some personality flaw in people who thrive on that kind of environment. I'll try to get legs in tomorrow.
  20. Wednesday, April 27, 2016: 0. Rower - 1250m 1. Incline Bench - 3 x 15 @ 175lbs 2. Drag Curl - 3 x 15 @ 90lbs - 3. Fly - 3 x 20 @ 70lbs 4. Tricep Ext. - 3 x 15 - 5. Decline Bench - 3 x 15 @ 110lbs 6. Seated Hammer Curl - 3 x 12 @ 50lbs Been away for a while now, which is surprising. Work last week was just over the top, and while I got to train pretty much on schedule, I just didn't have the time/energy to post about it. Had a stressful weekend as well, even though we were in Madison (one of my purported favorite places), I had to work. That really sucked. Did a bit of bodyweight training, but nothing to write home about. Yesterday and today were much better training-wise. Job is really difficult these past couple months. At least, I have one supervisor who is really tough. I know he's making me much better long-term, but the growing pains are brutal. Anyhow, that's what I've been up to. Work. Work. Sleep. Work. That's about it, really. I'll try to be more diligent about posting. Cardio/Core tomorrow.

Hammer Curl - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs - 5. Close Grip Decline Press - 3 x 15 @ 110lbs 6. Chin Up - 3 x 15 Pretty good session today. I felt a little drained, but managed to push through to the end. Beautiful day outside, and I got to take Penny for a walk. Are you planning on spending the rest of the day relaxing, and then going to dinner with a couple of friends. Beers are in order. Back on Tuesday to resume my normal routine.
  23. Wednesday, April 13, 2016: Legs 0. Rower - 750m 1. Squat - 3 x 12 @ 275lbs 2. Long Jump - 3 x 12 @ 35lbs - 3. Bulgarian Split Squat - 3 x 15* @ 90lbs 4. Lunge Jump - 3 x 16 @ 70lbs - 5. Tuck Jump - 3 x 25 6. Stair Jump - 3 x 12 @ 25lbs Posting this on Thursday because I didn't get to it on Wednesday. Had a function after work today, So I didn't get to train tonight. Also, I didn't eat very well today, and I also had a beer at the event. I'm unhappy today. I'm unhappy most days. Today is an exception.
  24. Nice work dude. Questions re: waking up in the middle of the night. Do you stretch legs ever? I sometimes wake up because my legs are tight from not stretching enough. Feels like I've been standing too long or something similar.
