  • Today is deadlifts, squats and glute bridges, and an hour of slow speed/high resistence recumbent biking. I love this day. It's butt day.

              • Worked the shoulders today.

                3 sets each of Shoulder Presses, Lateral Raises, Front Raises, and Push Presses. This marks the end of my first full week of strength training. I work Chest and Triceps on Mondays, Back and Biceps on Tuesdays, Legs on Thursdays, and Shoulders on Fridays. Rest days on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

                Looking forward to a couple of days off because I am definitely sore from this week!

                  • Deadlift, Squat, Leg press (High intensity)
                    I am not a bodybuilding/fat loss/strength training "guru" BUT I achieved a lean state with ease after learning the correct way to train and eat and I want to HELP YOU achieve the same.

                    Getting fit is also about managing your mindset:


                    • BBS workout

                      chest press
                      leg press
                      shoulder press
                      compound rows

                      2 miles with the kid and dog slow jog


                      • Alright, I've been doing a combination of P90X and the following for the past week:

                        Mon – Kettlebells and Karate
                        Tues – Run
                        Wed – Karate
                        Thurs – Run
                        Fri – Off
                        Sat – Gym – Barbell Bench, Squat, Deadlift, Row, Press, and Clean Variations (3 exercises per week).
                        Sun – Off or Yoga

                        So in the AM I do p90x, in the evening, the above workout. The past 2 days have looked like this:

                        Bench Press 10-10-10
                        Deadlift 10-10-10
                        Back Squat 10-10-10
                        Lat Pull Downs 3x10

                        Today: 3 mile Run and 75:00 Yoga

                        Back is feeling really good, joints are actually feeling ok. Can't believe how much easier p90x is than the last time I did it 4 years ago, but I guess all those complexes, densities, and timed sets really did a job on my cardio. Second phase I'll probably hybridize with Insanity to push the intensity up a little bit.
