As has been the case with my newfound motivation, I decided to increase my workout intensity just a bit for this week. Now we move the slider up to a whopping... 35% While that doesn't seem like much, it did account for at least 5-10 pounds on each lift. Considering the goal I have in … Continue reading Engines to 35%
So, I did my workout last night. Standard fare if you've read the last couple of my posts. Whole body split. Very light weights. I'm just trying not to give myself a heart attack while also actually trying to give myself a little additional muscle mass. It's a challenging equation to be sure... The good … Continue reading Another Step Up
Day 2 of my new super-easy whole body split has been completed! I decided I'm going to take things really easy in the weight room for a while. I mean, like, really easy. As an example, I did bench presses with 75 pounds. I usually have at least 180-200 on the bar. That's a big … Continue reading Continued Recovery
I'm just now realizing that is has been just about 4 months since my last post... That's pretty sad! I didn't mean for that happen; I guess time just got away from me. A lot has been going on in life. Some good things, some not good things, and some pretty terrible things. They may … Continue reading Back to the Drawing Board!
Today is supposed to be leg day. I was supposed to be doing leg day for the last four weeks. I haven't done it once. Don't be like me. Do leg day. I'm not looking forward to it, but I know this is where the big muscles are. The ones that really can get things … Continue reading Ugh, Leg Day…
I'm going to have an opinion today. I usually stay away from that, but really, what's the fun in that? I want to talk about the most recent Mr. Olympia competition. I know I'm late to the game on this one by a few months, but it occurred to me this afternoon that I really … Continue reading Mr. Olympia?
I'm just curious... If you follow my blog, or just happen to stumble upon it, would you be so kind as to leave a comment/answer regarding the following question? HOW LONG DO YOU LIKE BLOG POSTS TO BE? My inclination is to usually write less frequent, but longer posts. Would you, the reader, prefer a … Continue reading How long should it be?
I'm asking you, yeah, you! How are things going for everyone so far with their 2018 goals? Even though we're only a couple of weeks in, you should have a fair idea of how things are coming together. Are you following your workout schedule? Your cardio routine? Diet and nutrition? It's tough. I experience it … Continue reading How are things going?
After being outside in the freezing cold for the better part of 2 hours, I have come to a conclusion; the best workout, possibly ever, is shoveling a driveway after a blizzard. It's not enjoyable like regular gym training can be. It's cold and windy. The snow can be heavy as hell. The snow likes … Continue reading No Gym Like Snow Gym
I've found some difficulty lately in trying to make a decision. It's one many of us have to make at some point in our lives. It's especially true this time of year. What kind of gym do you want to join? It really does beg for some serious thought and we all should take the … Continue reading Dungeon, Spa, Planet
