Today is a step workout at the gym! Hopefully I do well since I'm on a recovering foot.

I've been sick since Friday. Hopefully I will be able to get a workout in today. I'm feeling better....not great but better.

Ecology teacher decided to hold lab tomorrow out in the middle of nowhere.

Won't be a fun bike ride with a 55% chance of rain and me having done leg day today

My two options for routes, the shorter one being 100% unfamiliar road the whole way.

The first one being about 50% unfamiliar territory

Don't like my form on these, but going to have to increase weight at some point to get stronger

http://youtu.be/0fpEn8-52og

So, I've decided since I do pull ups in the gym twice a week, one day will be a lighter rep, aiming for getting my chest at/above the bar; and the other day will be a heavier weight (doing 80 in the video) and aiming for my chin at/above the bar

So I did chest, arms and shoulder routine on Thursday the 27th. I swam a little on Friday. Saturday I was outside a lot and probably lost a pound or two just by being in the heat and sweating so much and Sunday was spent cleaning for a few hours. I'm finally feeling almost back to normal. I'm still coughing and my nose is still running.

Yesterday I did legs and back routine. I changed up my squats a little and used less weight and went as low as I could go. I also added weight to my dead lifts and lunges. Today is chest, arms and shoulders again

Doing a 20 minute strength circuit and then jogging for another 20 minutes, and later on tonight at work, I'll be walking for close to 4 hours, so I sort of average that count.

Tried something a little diff today for flat bench

135 - 15 reps
160 - 10 reps
185 - 10 reps
205 - 5 reps (6 if you count the arched one)
215 - 3 reps (4 if you count the arched one)
225 - 2 reps

From here I started at 225, and went back to 135 going each till failure (well or until I knew I wouldn't get another rep, as I had no spotter)

225 - 2 reps
215 - 2 reps
205 - 3 reps
185 - 5 reps
160 - 7 reps
135 - 10 reps

Followed it up with 3 sets of weighted dips @ 90 lbs for 8 reps eac

Then did some dumbbell curls for biceps/calf raises on the leg press for calves to finish off the workout

Best decision you'll ever make. I go as low as my flexibility allows. I got up to 315 doing a bit higher than parallel, then dropped it to 275 about a year ago, getting about this low
(that's a 10 lb sand belt btw, not a back support belt); and god my form was terrible a year ago. I don't let my back hunch over like that anymore for sure. (one of the reasons I can actually go lower, lol my arms don't hit my thighs anymore)

and now I get humbled by 5 reps of 225 going lower than parallel, but I'll tell you what, it's a far better workout. My quads burn more and I just love the range of motion. My heart rate gets higher and it just feels all around more challenging. Will be great when I can build my way back up to 315 and say that I'm doing legit, squats. Keep it up!

It sucks that you're still sick. Was hoping that would have passed by now. Get better soon!

Yesterday was a good day. A very good day. A friend of mine joined me at the gym and I was able to try a little bit heavier of a bench press than if I was alone. I was able to do 135 5x with a little assistance....so I am probably around 125 to 130 without. I'm going to keep working on it and I should be good soon. Today though is legs and back again. He hats doing legs so this will be fun >:3c

For the last 3 or so months I've been doing a 5x5 lifting challenge from Tribe Sport. Today I will be doing Barbell squats, bench press, and rows. My left hip has been acting up any time I do squats with weight so I am not sure if I am going to try going back to 40-50lbs today or sticking with small weights.

I really pushed myself yesterday with squats and dead lifts. I did 3x8 for both
Squats: 185, 195, 200
Dead lifts: 145, 155, 185

I think the most I have done with dead lifts has been 155 and I took my weight way down for squats so I could actually go parallel so yesterday I was able to bump it back up and get my legs parallel to the ground. So it was a good workout. Next week I will aim for a little bit more weight.
