Started with the usual lunch hour basketball for 45 minutes.

 

Tonight, I did a mish-mash workout of what I didn't yet get to this week (my gym is crazy busy) Whatever back and chest I did tonight is in additiona to my back and chest workout on Tuesday.

 

Deadlifts: Warm-up at 225lbs for 8, then 245lbs for 5, 265lbs for 3 and 285lbs for 1. (Maxed at 300 1.5 months ago but took some time off from it due to back pain from trying to add to the leg press. Will try for a 315 max in about six weeks.)

Incline Leg Press: 450 plus what the sled weighs (80, I think?) 5 sets of 8

Seated Row: 3 sets of 8 at 130

Wide grip pull-ups- 3 sets of 5 (I was smoked)

Ab-crunch machine-5 sets of 10 at 130

Dumbbell chest press on the flat bench: 4 sets of 10 with 55s

 

According to the fitness tester at work I'm currently:

 

6 feet 3.5 inches tall, 183.7lbs. 12% body fat.

Blood pressure was 116/74 (shortly after a not-healthy snack) and heart rate was at 75 beats per minute.

Core flow yoga today, god this class is brutal and the instructor is insane, but it's caused me to begin developing a lovely six pack, and those weird side muscles (Obliques?) right above the hip, so that's good.

obliques are my favorite hehe, I got them after a lot of yoga and weighted sidebends. (if you want sidebends to be effective...you need to go heavy weight and focus on the eccentric movement)

 

 

 

 

Back in the gym after quite a hiatus...

 

Yesterday was Shoulders/Legs

 

Today, possibly some Chest and mostly cardio

You know...I don't like 'em! Not on me, anyway.

 

I think they look super hot on men though. My BF thinks they look good on me, but I will not be doing extra exercises to build-up my obliques any more than they are at this point!!

Yesterday was a heavy chest day, and a little cardio thrown in afterwards. If I make it to the gym tonight, might try to do legs and shoulders (not sure if I'm going tonight after work, since I'm exhausted from this past weekend).

    • 6 Signs You Are Hurting Subconsciously
      Do you value having a positive and optimistic perspective of life, no matter how bad things are? Being overly positive and optimistic can be as bad, or even worse, than having a negative approach to something. After all, lying to yourself is very rarely the best way to approach things and it can be detrimental to your mental health. So, if you're not happy or hurting about something, it is important that you acknowledge it instead of repressing and ignoring it.
