Midweek Post

Well, it's officially the middle of the week, so I figure I would update with how my workouts have been going.

One thing I can say for sure, I haven't been this sore in a long time.

So like I mentioned in the last post, starting this new workout was probably going to involve me tweaking it quite a bit. And that's for sure. This is what I come up so far.

Bench Press 3x10 (40 lbs)
Dumbbell Pullovers 3 x 10 (25 lb)
Barbell Deadlifts (conventional stance)(90lbs)
Neutral Dumbell Bench PResses 3 x 10 (15lbs)
One Armed Dumbell Rows 3 x 10 (15 lbs)
1 Mile Ran (2.0 increase, 5.5 speed)

It was weird, because while I was doing the free weight excercises, I actually didn't feel very tired. I was sweating, but feeling good. Then I hit the threadmill and it hit me like a ton of bricks. It was a struggle finishing up that mile, and when I got home I had a case of the shakes. Woke up the following morning extremely sore.

Weighted bicycles 3 x 20
Side Leans 3 x 10
Ball Crunches until you can’t do any more and wish you were dead
Incline Sit Ups 3 x 10
2.5 miles ran (2.5 increase, 5.5 speed)

The odd days are going to be the days I concentrate on cardio and abs. Really kicked my ass again

Incline Dumbbell Rows 3 x 10 (15 lbs)
Pulldowns (wide grip overhand) 3 x 10 (90 lbs)
Pulldowns (Close reverse grip) 3 x10 (90 lbs)
Calf Raises 3 x 10
Bicep Curls 3 x10 (15 lbs)
Weighted Lunges 3 x 10
Stair Machine (20 minutes)

Man I tried doing pull ups and couldn't do more than 2. It's pretty damn embarrassing really, specially when some older chick was doing them with no problem. That's why I'll be doing the pull downs on the machines, while trying to do more pull ups.

Well, that's about it. So far, so good. I'm feeling good about the workouts, they're the change I needed. Every morning I been waking up sore, which hasn't happened in quite a while, so that has to be a good sign.

I'll update on Sunday with the final changes I make to my workout.

Neat blog. I think it's a great way to inspire other people and hold yourself accountable.

You haven't posted since July 1st, are you fat again? :(
