So i've been sitting on my butt for 2 months now and finally recuperating from my pinched nerve in my neck. The pain in my elbow and shoulder is gone. Still have numbness in the fingertips and tingling sensations in the arm. I hit the bike 3 times last week to test it out. All went well. I think I'm ready to start the weights again...That's the good news. The bad news...I up to 238. This sucks. I could have eaten better but I just wasn't there. Now it's time to suck it up, get my eating right and pound it out folks!!!!
got my morning walk at the gym followed up with 15 mins in the steam sauna.
hit the gym 3 hrs later for my workout...
decline smith machine: 6 reps x 2 plates (each side), 5 x 3 plates, 5 x 3 plates, 5 x 4 plates, 1 x 4 plates and a 25
flat db bench press: 6 x 80lb, 5 x 80lb, 5 x 100lb, 5 x 110lb, 5 x 120lb
incline flys: 6 x 55lb, 5 x 65lb, 5 x 65lb, 5 x 80lb, 5 x 80lb
3 more weeks of lifting heavy and then back to cutting again.
had a realization the other day that i'm eating too much sugar. i always thought the fruit i've been eating was much better than my fast food or other crap but now i'm at the point where i'm getting this last 20 lbs off because i need to take my nutrition to the next level.
so i'm revamping and adding in my veggies and removing the fruit...gonna try the fruit right after my workouts with my protein and limit my fruit/sugar intake to that. let's see what happens.
Another leg day in the books. Seems like everyone in the gym was doing legs.
Hack Squats: 4 plates x 8, 6 plates x 6, 8 plates x 5, 10 plates x 5, 12 plates x 5, 14 x plates 3
Standing Calf Raises: 90 lbs x 12, 110 x 8, 120 x 5, 130 x 5, 140 x 5, 150 x 5, 160 x 5, 170 x 5, 180 x 5, 190 x 5, 200 x 5, 210 x 5, 220 x 5, 230 x 5
Walking Lunges (8 steps each leg): 25 dbs, 25 dbs, 40 dbs, 50 dbs, 60 dbs
Man, hitting the 60 lb dbs on the walking lunges was brutal. Might take me 2 weeks to recover from this one.
Wrapped it up with 20 mins in sauna.
legs are killing me...haha, i love it. wrapped up my leg workout yesterday with walking lunges with the 55lb dbs. that felt good. i went in this morning to get some walking in trying to pump some blood through. went home for a nap. barely could get up afterwards. my legs almost talked me out of my workout today, but i decided to just get there and see what happens. jumped on the bike for 5 mins and the legs woke up. so i pounded out the chest. 45, 50, 55, 60, 65 x 6 flat flys, 75, 80, 85, 90, 100 x 6 db incline press, 225, 315, 315, 315, 315 x 6 decline press. walked on the treadmill for 10 mins and then hit the dry sauna for a 15. made it home for my protein shake. gotta go grocery shopping but i can't make it off the couch yet. i got one more and costco closes...wish me luck. haha
my work schedule still sucks haven't seen the sun since sunday...seriously i work i in a bat cave. at least i made it to the gym again and hit the arms. bi's are still pumped up. hit 150 on my tricep cable overhead extensions. be back to 200 in no time!! gonna pound through today quick, that way i have some serious time for a serious leg workout. nothing like checking out someone elses workout on here to get you pump up to do some serious damage...who's ready to crawl out the gym tonight!!
