And ... Here we go! Lexagon's Journey!

  1. This is not part of any set workout, just something I threw together when I saw how busy the gym was.

    Leg Press - no clue how heavy the sled is so I'm just posting per side
    1pps x 5
    70 x 5
    80 x 5 ** PR
    2pps x 5 ** PR
    2pps x 5 ** PR
    2pps x 5 ** PR
    2pps x 5 ** PR
    2pps x 5 ** PR

    Calf Raise
    140 x 5
    160 x 5
    180 x 5
    200 x 3

    Cybex Arc Trainer - 25 mins

    *Leg Press, I'm actually pretty sure the whole workout may have been PRs I haven't done the leg press in forever. But it was the only thing open and I figured as long as I get a good leg workout I'm a'ok. I was excited about the 2pps though that's for damn sure!

    Sooo yeah the gym was pretty packed. Lots of guys in the free weights. Squat rack was being used the WHOLE time I was there, for legit things, so I couldn't complain. Therefore, I decided to just do a few small things and then hit some cardio. I'll get back to SL on Friday AM when I can kick some major azz as always. I'm aiming for 100lb Squat Friday
    Did the leg press for a good quad workout and OMG was it. Calf raises are just fun for me, I don't know why but I love doing them. Then I got the crazy idea to throw the ARC in there, OMG that thing KILLS your legs. I almost gave up like 4 times, but I pushed myself harder every time. By the time I was done I think I sweat at least a gallon and I couldn't feel my legs. Srs, hopped off the machine and had jelly legs. I was happy with it though

    I was staaaaaaaarving when I got home

    always good to listen to your body... i used to try to train through the pain when I was younger...stupid move. better to change things for a short period and recover then be out long term

  4. I do notice a slight body temp increase. I'm thinking about upping the Ketones to 3x a day. I do notice some good things, mostly water related. I'm going to give it another week at the AM/PM if I don't notice too much more different I'll throw them in the middle of the day (before lunch) probably.

    sounds like a good plan... have to figure out what works best for you

  6. SL - B

    Squats*:
    5 x 65
    5 x 75
    5 x 85
    5 x 100 *PR
    5 x 100 *PR
    5 x 95
    5 x 95


    OHP:
    Still nothing here, I'm going to have to throw some RC exercises in I think.

    DLs**:
    5 x 95
    5 x 115
    5 x 135 *PR - Big wheels!

    * Squats - so I was excited to get back into my regular routine. The light reps were feeling pretty decent. Got up in the weights and just went for the 100 (goal for today). First set was pretty decent. Second set just didn't feel right. Something felt off. I have no idea what (maybe just mental). So I dropped back down to 95 and those felt much better. Then after the second set of 95's my shoulder felt like it was on fire (probably from how I was holding the bar), I dunno so I stopped one short. I didn't "fail" the squats they just felt off. Think I might stay at 95 for another workout. See if I can workout whatever that was.
    ** DL's felt really good. Hit the big wheels FINALLY! YAY! Awesome PR right there. Fuarking heavy though. WOW! My hands are still a little sore. Definitely going to need to work on grip if I plan on going much higher!

    So yeah, wasn't feeling it this AM. I have no idea what was wrong. Maybe that I got woken up abruptly and an hr later than I had planned, stupid phone alarm. I still made it to the gym with plenty of time, but I think it just threw me off. Wasn't feeling the squats. My shoulder started to burn. So yeah. The DLs felt awesome and my legs are def fatigued, I can tell just sitting here. Which is good! We'll see how Wed & Fri go. I definitely need to start throwing in some RC exercises. I'll have to see what I can manage.

  7. Update: I noticed that I was getting really weird headaches last week. I stopped taking the Ketones/Mango for a day, they went away. So then I just took the Ketones no headache. I think I am going to drop the African Mango for now and run the remaining bottle of just the Ketones. I need to focus on getting things done this week and those head aches sucked!

    Well I didn't get a headache yesterday on just the Ketones. So I decided this AM to go back to the Ketone/Mango combo, so far so good. Maybe it was just a fluke or allergies or something. We'll see what happens.

  12. I ended up taking my bike out after work yesterday for a quick 6.8 mi ~32 min ride. Dunno why but I just had to get out and get some exercise in. Felt great! Had to race the sun since its starting to set earlier, but still had enough time to get a decent ride in.

    * i did front raises instead of L's - lol and I accidentally picked up the 10lb wait on my right side on the first set - haha!

    Cardio:
    Arc Trainer - 17mins

    Great workout. Decided since my shoulder was still giving me some trouble (and the rack was occupied) that I would just use the other machines for a killer leg workout. And it was just that KILLER! Pushed hard on the Ext and Leg Press. Finally found a comfortable footing for the Press. Then decided to burn out my calves, for fun. That's always a great workout.
    Did a little RC work, as noted above I grabbed the 7.5 on the left and 10lb db on the right for my first set - haha. Couldn't figure out why the right felt SOO heavy ... lex had the dum. Surprisingly my shoulders don't hurt too bad this AM. I did fall asleep with the heat pad on my shoulder (yes it has auto shut-off and no I didn't mean to fall asleep). And woke up feeling pretty good. Shoulder was a little stiff, but not super sore like usual.

    Rewarded myself with some Froyo after that. And OMG was it good. They had Irish Mint Creme, heaven. If you didn't know i LOVE LOVE LOVE anything mint. Esp mint chocolate chip. Anyway yeah, well worth it.

  16. Great workout and way to go on the PR's! Wooooohoooo! Froyo sounds delish! A new place just opened around here and I'm dying to try it out, maybe on a refeed day.

  17. SL - A

    Leg Press -
    45 x 5
    70 x 5
    90 x 5

    Captains Chair -
    knee raise x 15
    leg raise x 5
    knee raise x 10

    Pretty good workout over all. Sticking to the LPress for now, as the bar irritates my shoulder on the squats and I'd rather not feel like that right now. Those are going up so at least I'm still getting a good leg workout in each time. I would rather squat, but I'll have to figure something out there first. Bench was just meh - first few sets felt great, but after that one heavier one my shoulder was aching so I stopped. Same thing with rows. Although I did get more sets out of those, thankfully! I did the captains chair just to see how my core was doing. Surprisingly it's a lot stronger, which I guess would make sense. Just seems funny since I haven't done any actual core exercises in FOREVER!

    hope you enjoyed the weekend

  19. Sunday Workout: Almost forgot to post!
    Went on a nice long bike ride this morning. My tude is killing me ... lex will be investing in padded shorts soon! Srs. And probably some cycling shoes, just to make my life easier and not worry about my feet slipping on the longer rides. Despite the sore tude, my legs are feeling wonderful. And the weather wasn't so bad.

    22.12 mi ~ 2 hrs

    I've drank over a gallon of water today already. Going to be lazy for a little while and then off to yoga w/ some friends around 3. Pretty sure I could use stretching and relaxing! Need to by groceries too, just a few. Maybe that will make grocery shopping more enjoyable.

  20. Is tude what I think it is? Haha

    What helps when I go grocery shopping is to eat a snack before I leave. That way I'm not walking the aisles feeling famished and end up throwing boxes of pop tarts in my cart lol.

    Haha yeah, one of my friends refers to it as "bike tude" I forgot to change it, but yeah my butt hurt! That's what happens.

    Normally I do eat, but I was so tired and relaxed and didn't want to be there anyway so that made my trip a huge success. Plus I'm leaving for vaca on Sat so I didn't want a whole bunch of extra crap sitting around. I just got veggies for the week.

    It's called restorative yoga - it's basically relaxation + lots of stretching! It's a great class that I will gladly pay for. Except this time around I over stretched my right hip flexor (or something) and left in some pain for a couple days. Other than that, great class! I keep wanting to try hot yoga, but never go through with it.

  30. Ok I'm finally back. Vacation was great. Rained on and off most of the time I was there. But that's ok, it was a nice change since we don't get rain here much. Had a nice time relaxing, eating and visiting with people.

    Now back to the grind . haha!
