  1. Tuesday, April 12, 2016: TRX Day - 3 Rounds, rest 2 minutes 1. Fly x 15 2. Row x 15 3. I's x 15 4. Squat x 15 5. Side Lunge x 15* 6. Hamstring Curl x 15 Well I got home really late and just had time to squeeze this in. I also trained last Thursday but it wasn't worth posting. Trained really well onSatirday, but just forgot to post. Still don't have a laptop, so that explains that. Bummed I didn't get under the weights today or really kill it at all, especially since I have a work thing Thursday night. Lame. I'll crush legs tomorrow to make up.
  2. Nice! gotta be more activation through overall better form, no?
  3. Ah mate I know, I hate those drugs too. They always make me so messed up serotonin-wise for days after. Never really liked deadlifts at all. Felt they were awkward to pull off, and could never really draw up much weight. Plus, with any significant weight you're just one false move away from serious injury. I just don't like them.
  4. I did train calf muscles a while back, but always felt kind of silly. Don't know why. Honestly man the most sore I've ever been was doing body weight squats and going as low as possible. It will tear your arse right off! lol. It's just so different as a training style. You almost always have to go for volume, which means heart rate is raised. Plus you can do full body workouts in far less time than with free weights. I'd really recommend some TRX bands or other suspension trainer. There's cheaper ones out there. Hope you enjoy it if you try!
  5. TuesDay, April 4, 2016: Legs 0. Row - 1250m 1. Front Lunge - 3 x 15 @ 160lbs 2. Lunge Jumps - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs - 3. Sumo Squat - 3 x 15 @ 230lbs 4. Squat Jumps - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs - 5. Tuck Jump - 3 x 20 6. High Knees - 3 x 50 I was determined to get in a full workout today even though when I got home I was pretty tired from work. The front lunges were really tough. Otherwise I felt like things could've been a little more difficult in the session. For example, the sumo squats could've been heavier. Otherwise, today was a decent day and this week hasn't been too bad so far. Still, I'm looking forward to the weekend already, and it's only Tuesday. Tomorrow, I plan on working chest and arms, and focusing more on bodyweight training. Should be a good time.
  6. Sorry for the shit time buddy. I'm sure you'll be up and crushing it again soon. At least enjoy the drugs for now lol. You've still got the countryside man!
  7. Saturday, April 2, 2016: Full Body Circuit - 2 rounds, rest 2 minutes 0. Row - 500m 1. Offset Push-up x 50 2. Curl & Press x 15 @ 50lbs 3. Diamond Push-up x 50 3. Row x 15 @ 175lbs 4. Sword Raise x 15 @ 35lbs 5. DB Pullover x 15 @ 50lbs Well I worked all day again and then tired to pull this off for 3 rounds. Probably had no business training at all given that I was yawning through the whole session. Felt like shit the entire time too. Just completely sapped of energy. I've noticed my eyelids twitching so I know I'm pretty well fatigued. Don't have many feelings either, just wavering between nothing and really angry. So, I guess I'm overworked. Hard to get much rest when I always have something on my plate. My boss asked me if I was entitled to vacation the other day (shouldn't he know?), which I suppose was kind of a hint. Problem is that even on vacation I tend to do more simply due to the fact that during regular life I'm just working eating and sleeping. Going to rest as much as possible for the remainder of the weekend. Snowed here today which was a real kick in the nuts. Fuck snow. Fuck winter. Have a good weekend.
  8. Thursday, March 31, 2016: Chest/Arms 0. Rower - 750m 1. Incline Bench - 3 x 15 @ 175lbs 2. Hammer Curl - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs - 3. Decline Fly - 3 x 20 @ 70lbs 4. Tricep Ext - 3 x 15 Well I killed it yesterday and forgot to post. Then I worked a crazy long day today and was too tired to go the distance on this session. I'm crazy sore in the legs, especially glutes. I'm also exhausted. I need more rest, and possibly more food intake. I plan to rest tomorrow, and then make up for this on Saturday. Hopefully I can get in when I wanted to get in today as well as some work for back and shoulders. Otherwise, I plan to be asleep within moments of hitting the pillow tonight.
  9. Wednesday, March 30, 2016: Legs 0. Rower - 1000m 1. Reverse Lunge - 3 x 15 @ 165lbs 2. Lunge Jumps - 3 x 16 @ 70lbs - 3. Front Squat - 3 x 15 @ 90lbs 4. Squat Jump - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs - 5. Hamstring Curl - 3 x 15 @ 45lbs 6. Log Jumps - 3 x 20
  10. Tuesday, March 29, 2016: TRX Circuit - 2 Rounds, Rest 1 minute 1. Chest Press x 15 2. Row x 15 3. Squat x 15 4. Tricep Extension x 15 5. Side Lunge x 15 6. Curls x 15 7. Hamstring Curl x 15 8. Wide Grip Pull-up x 15 Well, it looks like I forgot to post on Saturday. However, I did manage to train, and felt like I did a pretty good job. Saturday was a lot of shoulder and back work, including military press, single arm row, snatch, and other stuff like that. Today, I just got home really late almost an hour later than usual and only had about 10 to 20 minutes to actually train. So, if you're ever in need of a short session, I would really recommend getting some TRX bands. You can bust out at least a couple of sets in circuit and get a semi-decent workout in. Still haven't purchased a new laptop, so I am posting this on my phone. It's really making it difficult to be consistent with posting but I'm going to try harder. Proper leg session tomorrow.
  11. Thursday, March 24, 2016: HIIT Circuit - 3 rounds, rest 2 minutes 0. Row - 1250m 1. Tuck Jump x 20 2. Push-up Jacks x 20 3. Mountain Climbers x 50 4. High Knees x 50 5. Renegade Row x 12* @ 25lbs 6. Sword Raise x 12 @ 35lbs Pretty good training tonight but I'm still not 100% on energy. This took longer than necessary, but at least I got it in. I'm going to lift on Saturday, but I'm not sure if it will be anything over the top. With the hours I've been keeping lately, and maybe not sleeping as well as I should, I've bee really exhausted at the end of the day. I'm actually posting this while on my way to work. At least I get to go home early. I would love to have a few days off. That would he really nice.
  12. Wednesday, March 23, 2016: TRX Day 2 Rounds, Rest None 1. Chest Press x 20 2. Curls x 15 3. Tricep Ext x 15 4. Ring Dips x 12 Got home late again, had to do some work when I got home. That equals no reasonable time to train. Plus, I'm straight up exhausted. Disappointing effort today. Legs sore from yesterday. I need a vacation. Update: Did two more rounds after dinner. Still weak for the day.
  13. Tuesday, March 21, 2016: Legs - TRX Circuit (3 Rounds, Rest 2 Min) 1. ATG Squat x 15 2. Side Lunge x 15* 3. Single Leg Squat x 15* 4. Hamstring Curl x 15 5. Bulgarian Splits x 15* Trained later than usual today since I took Penny for a walk on account of the super nice weather. Also trained a bit on the TRX on Monday but that was mostly upper body. I guess it wasn't worth posting. Anyhow, this really wasn't all that challenging compared to other leg days, but it's better than nothing and I didn't feel like putting together a bunch of weights. Also, I was hungry lol. Speaking of, shame on me for getting into the crackers :/. Chest/arms tomorrow, and some serious rowing.
  14. Sunday, March 20, 2016: 1. 50 pull-ups. Just messing around today and got a little bit of work in. Rest for the remainder of the night. Going to do some TRX work tomorrow when I get home.
  15. Saturday, March 19, 2016: Back/Shoulders 0. Rower - 1250m 1. Single Leg Deadlift - 3 x 15* @ 75lbs 2. Arnold Press - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs - 3. Single Arm Row - 3 x 15* @ 75lbs 4. Goblet Raise - 3 x 15 @ 35lbs - 5. Seated Lat Raise - 3 x 15 @ 30lbs 6. Pistol Grip Pull-ups - 3x15 Pretty good training today, even though I was tired from the end of the workweek. I'm starting to notice some real progress at least in the mirror from all of the additional cardio on the rower. That's pretty exciting. I'm not very good on eating on Saturdays, and I tend to take in more junk food including going out to dinner at the end of the night. Going to try really hard to abstain from alcohol this evening although I might end up having at least one beer with dinner. Looking forward to sleeping in on Sunday although I hate that it takes up most of my day off. Anyhow, I hope everyone reading has a good weekend and I'll be back on Tuesday.
  16. Thursday, March 17, 2016: Rower - 1250m And that's it for training. Got home late. Felt really tired. Getting ready for work now, so no time to post. I work too much.
  17. Wednesday, March 16, 2016: Chest/Arms 0. Rower - 500m 1. Incline Bench - 3 x 15 @ 175lbs 2. EZ Curls - 3 x 15 @ 75lbs 3. Tricep Extension - 3 x 15 - 4. PlyoPushups - 3 x 15 5. Decline Fly - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs 6. Hammer Curls - 3 x 15 @ 35lbs Got home late so had to scrap most of my rowing plans and do these as giant sets. Still a decent workout, but not as good as yesterday. Legs are just so much more conducive to a hard workout. Posting this right before bed so it will be short. Once I hit the pillow I've got about a 5 minute window before I'm crashed out. Will get at it tomorrow with some body weight work and cardio.
  18. Looks like you've been putting in some hard work. Do you take a B vitamin supplement? My wife makes me take one (I'm terrible about taking pills). She says to get the on that the supplement in it that starts with an M. I can tell when I haven't been taking it regularly because I feel sluggish all the time. It's cool you are so supportive of your husband. Nice to have a training partner as well. Can be boring when all alone every time. Glad you're doing well!
  19. Tuesday, March 15, 2016: Legs 0. Rower - 1250m, 4:00min 1. Bulgarian Split Squat - 3 x 15 @ 135lbs 2. Lunge Jumps - 3 x 16 @ 70lbs - 3. Sumo Squat - 3 x 15 @ 225lbs 4. Squat Jump - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs - 5. Box Jump - 3 x 15/12/12 @ 25lbs 6. Belt Kix - 3 x 24 Well, I've been terrible about posting lately most likely because I still don't have a laptop. I usually post right after I've trained and I am eating dinner. However, without the laptop there are usually forget and then it's just too late or end up going to bed. I will try to be better about it in the near future although I don't really have any plans to buy a new laptop, or at least I'm just avoiding spending the money. So for tonight, I'm dictating this on my phone. Apologies if the language is not clear. This was a pretty good session of the box jumps really kicked my ass. I have been dealing with some weird gastritis and or stomach problem for the past few days. The sensation is as if I am hungry and nauseous at the same time. This morning I woke up really early and felt as if I were going to barf. It kind of comes and goes in waves. I had some yogurt before training in that seem to really help maybe it's the calcium in the coconut or maybe it's the probiotic probably the probiotic. Anyhow, I've missed posting on here and miss reading your post as well. I'll make a better effort tomorrow.
  20. Tuesday, March 8, 2016: Legs 0. Rower - 1250m; 5 minutes 1. Reverse Lunge - 3 x 15 @ 165lbs 2. Long Jump - 3 x 12 @ 25lbs - 3. Sumo Squat - 3 x 15 @ 225lbs 4. Squat Jump - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs - 5. Box Jump (on stairs) - 3 x 15 6. High Knees - 3 x 50 Haven't posted in a while, and it's due to a flurry of unfortunate events. Two weeks ago on Friday night my little pup Penny got really sick with cluster seizures and we almost had to put her to sleep. It was horrible. I held her in my arms for 14 hours straight while we nursed her back to health. She's fully recovered now, but it was a terrible experience. I didn't sleep the entire weekend, as in from when I woke up on Friday morning until Sunday night. Anyhow, no training that weekend. Then on Tuesday I worked from home to take care of her, and discovered the power cord on my laptop (as in the tiny electrical wires inside connecting the on button to the motherboard) had become severed, and so my laptop crapped out. I did train 3 times last week, but they were all on the TRX so it was nothing to really write home about. Yesterday I did 50 chest press on the TRX and 50 pullups just to kill some time before dinner. That was fun. Today I got back in action, and it really kicked my ass. The rower is just brutal, especially with only a few days off really. Oh yeah, the lunges too.... killer. So, plans are for NO more animals to be sick, ever, to buy a new laptop once I feel like dropping the coin, and to continue kicking as much ass as possible. Oh yeah, probably lost about 7lbs of bodyweight from that shitty weekend where Penny was so sick. I was feeding her with a syringe, giving her subcutaneous fluids, and my wife was so great giving her all of her medicine which had to be taken in an uncomfortable manner given that she couldn't really handle swallowing. We really made a good team, and it really makes me want to have a family. That's at the forefront of my thoughts lately. That's what's been going on. Sorry for being absent, but I'm going to make an effort to get back to posting regularly. I need a place to express my thoughts. Chest/arms tomorrow.
  21. Thursday, February 25, 2016: Core/Cardio Cardio: 0. Rower - 1250m Core Circuit (2 Rounds): 1. Bicycle Abs x 50* 2. Hi-Knees x 50* 3. Burpees x 12 4. Mountain Climbers x 50* Kept it short and intense today since I have already trained 3x this week, and plan to crush it on Saturday. Kind of a long day too at work, and I woke up late so I must be in need of rest. Happy to oblige for at least a little bit. Not much else to say about this one. I'm tired, and hungry. Salad time!
  22. Thanks! I love combining plyometrics with weights, and even weighted plyometrics. It makes them even more horrible! For me those are just plain mind over matter, and I focus on something totally different in the moment. Give the weighted squat jumps a try. You'll be surprised how quickly you progress!
  23. Wednesday, February 24, 2016: Chest/Arms 0. Rower - 1250m 1. Incline Bench - 3 x 15 @ 180lbs 2. Renegade Row - 3 x 12* @ 50lbs - 3. Hammer Curl - 3 x 15 @ 70lbs 4. Incline Plyo-Pushup - 3 x 15 - 5. Pushup Jacks - 3 x 15 6. Drag Curl - 3 x 115 @ 80lbs Great training today. Really felt like I killed it with all of the plyometrics. Short day at work too due to inclement weather. Kind of an all around win for the day; especially since one of the partners asked me to do something that I had already done! Don't really have much else to say, except that I thought about football while I was training tonight and got really excited for next season. Go Packers!
