    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Run 4.5 miles @ 4.8 min/mile pace

    Went to bed at 0330 this morning and slept for ~5 hours, lying in bed for another hour before getting up...Since my resistance session was planned for the night, headed out for a 7-mile run, surprising myself with the ease at which I started. Pace was faster than it was last week as well, getting closer to "normal", which is nice...20 minutes in the sauna post-run, before a "leg massage" in the spa (water cold again today), and stretching to complete my recovery...Actually started feeling quite shattered ~1730, and passed out for a little over an hour ~1800. I DID consider doing my resistance session tomorrow, but didn't, NOT wanting to get off course and make ANY allowances or "excuses" for anything - it's time for the Terminator to do what she does best!...Even though was still a little blah when I headed to the gym, skipping at the start got me quickly in the mood, rapid, not missing a beat, a sweat easily forming...Headed into my weights. Able to do more reps re Close-Grip BB Bicep Curls today than last week AND I ADDED two additional sets re TriSet A, just because I wanted to keep going until all I could manage was six reps a set. I went LOW on my Dips, doing them slowly, to "match" the reps done each set on the Close-Grip BB Bicep Curls, and actually felt it biting deep in my left delt. Skipping at the end of each triset remained fast. Same weight as last week re Incline Alternate DB Biceps Curls, but, as with Close-Grip BB Bicep Curls, able to do MORE each set, adding in another two sets re TriSet B as well, albeit struggling a little on them with this exercise. Used a different cable for a couple of sets re V-Bar Tricep Push-Downs, which made it interesting, but was ok here - LOVED the definition in the mirror during these and want THAT when I am RELAXED and in photoshoots! Sweat dripping down my back with everything, my hair sticking to my face during skipping. Because the cables were all being used (busy time in the gym - lots of youth getting in the way, GRRR) when it came to TriSet C, I stuck with the dumbbells. First exercise in this triset was DB Zottoman Curls - with the same weight used for Incline Alternate DB Bicep Curls, not able to do that many reps, but was ok, "made up" for by the excellent vascularity through my delts and arms. Then to Standing DB French Press - had to drop the weight after the first set, because I almost didn't make the last rep. Getting a little frustrated during skipping of this triset. My tank top literally soaked through, I started on TriSet D. Weighted Crunches I felt my right delt/bicep hurt sharply during the first and last set, but nothing unmanageable. Pikes I felt my abs work during. Skipping I started falling apart, the rope catching several times on the last set and every time I started my 100 revolutions from the start again, getting more frustrated with myself each time I had to...The Recline Bike was in use when I finished my resistance training, so I headed outside for a run instead. It was rather pleasant and reminded me how much I enjoy running in the DARK (as opposed to during daylight hours), and ended up doing ~4.5 miles over rolling terrain. My knees were fine throughout it and I was in a good mood when I got back to the gym...So, definitely glad I did tonight's training. It was a GREAT session overall and I look forward to tomorrow...

    Oh, I'm just trying to be positive and "motivate" MYSELF, Doug, because there is so MUCH going on right now - too many upsets and heartaches and stress - that I NEED something to FOCUS on to take my mind off everything else, if you know what I mean, and what better way to do that than to become a "machine" again.

    Well, for someone who has spent almost a lifetime using negativity as a motivating force and been successful in what I've done when I've really wanted it, being positive is different, but ok - two different methods to the same endpoint, albeit with different feelings associated with each...I'm working on it, Chris!!!

    Everything I Am...Giving It All!!!


    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    "Hope does not discriminate. It does not matter how dire a situation may seem, how much pain or angst you are feeling, or how badly you are beaten down. It doesn't matter who you are, where you are, or in what direction you may be heading. Hope is always there. Like the prodigal son did, you must seize it. Once you do, God will be there to welcome you into His arms. Listen for hope's whisper." - Genelle Guzman-McMillan with William Croyle, Angel in the Rubble

    For the complete Motivational, review Hope | Rosie's MuscleRevolution.


    TRAINING

    Session 1

    HIIT Run:
    a. 4 min jogging
    b. 12 x 20 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    c. 10 min jogging

    Stretch 20 min

    Session 2

    Run 7 miles @ 4.4 min/mile pace

    Went to bed at 0500, beginning from the start to rewatch the anime series Trinity Blood (one of my top five anime) to help me get to sleep. Unfortunately, I was still awake at 0630, taking me until close to ~0800 to drift off into the blackness, waking ~2 hours later...An hour after that I headed out for my HIIT Run. My body was sore and a little sluggish today, and heading out uphill into the wind didn't help either. From the first sprint I knew it was not going to be one of my better HIIT sessions and only did 12 sprints, each one feeling slower than the last, despite giving it my all...Back at the hotel, into the sauna for 30 minutes and then the spa for a "leg massage", before finishing my recovery with stretching...Not really "feeling it" today, and a little frustrated at news and events going on, I decided to make it a "chillax" day - if I COULD - and continued on with my episodes of Trinity Blood. Started feeling fatigued ~1600, passing out ~ 1700 for ~1.5 hours, definitely NOT feeling like doing ANYthing in the evening, least of all going for ANOTHER run (running seems to exhaust my body quite a lot, but that and cycling are the BEST modes of cardio for me re leaning and fitness, so they HAVE to be done). Yes, you know I would have kept talking to you, silvertongue, but my run had to be done, so off I went, making my way back uphill into the wind in the direction of the gym. I felt slow (although my final average pace indicates otherwise) and have never been more relieved to FINISH a run...Feeling so much BETTER a couple of hours after my run, pleased but not pleased with how I am going with everything. That said, I have my two weeks pre-photoshoot training schedule all planned out, as well as nutrition, so if all goes as I want for next week, then I will be sticking with this protocol before any future ones henceforth...And yes, you give me a smile, even though you are doing what you are. I still have HOPE and I am holding ON to it with EVERYTHING I AM!!!

    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    "Only shared experiences can help others. Aldous Huxley said, "Experience is not what happens to you. It is what you do with what happens to you." What will you do with what you've been through? Don't waste your pain; use it to help others." - Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life

    Bed at 0330 again this morning, exhausted and falling asleep quickly, albeit waking every ~2 hours, finally getting up after ~4 hours sleep...Didn't feel too much like going for a run this morning, but I did anyway, forcing myself out there. From the start I knew it was going to be a slower session, body feeling heavy and mind not really on it. Slowest run I have done in a while...Back at the hotel, I went out to the pool, not able to be underwater fast enough, welcoming it, seeking the quiet release that it offered, tempted to take it. My right knee collapsed on me as I headed over to the spa for a "leg massage", not helping things. Back to my room where I ran a bath as hot as it would go, scalding me on entry but my body getting used to it, just wanting some warmth and being underwater again...Started to feel even MORE shattered ~1330 and went back to bed, hoping to get some rest (and calm), but sleep did not come and I ended up just getting back up at 1500, preparing myself for the gym at 1530 for a 1600 start, not really feeling like it, but knowing that I NEEDED it!...Started off with 1,000 revolutions of skipping, ankles, arches, knees, shoulders/biceps' tendons, and left wrist all fine. Despite that, thoughts had me upset, only determined to push myself HARDER to FEEL the PAIN...Then into the bulk of my session. Different order than this session last week and making it quadsets instead of trisets, to ensure I was constantly on the go. And on the go I was. Upped the weight by five pounds from last week on Neutral Grip Seated Row and managed ok, only starting to struggle a little on the last set. For the first time in ages I had no issues with my shoulders the Side-to-side DB Push-Ups. Again, used the barbell to reach down nine inches from atop a bench re Stiff-Legged BB Deadlifts, seeing the sweat already glistening on my face. Skipping was fine, but I had to "tie" my plait up to stop it hitting the rope. DB Bicep Curls for 21s, an exercise I really enjoyed when I first started doing it - started feeling it during the last seven reps of each set, and the last seven on the last set were a little slower than the rest because it was starting to hurt. 10 pounds more than last week used for the V-Bar Tricep Push-Downs and was fine - on the other side of the cable today, and the definition in my right side/back is definitely not as strong as in my left. Used five pounds more per side re Alternate DB Hammer Bicep Curls this week and was fine. Skipping ok. Used 15 pounds more re Rear Flyes this week - feeling my left elbow clicking and creaking during the second and third set, with the last set a real battle, having to pause for a second before each of the last four reps. Plate Hammer Raises were ok - same weight as last week. Did Alternate Plate Single-Arm Lateral Raises again since I enjoyed them last week - seeing the definition in my anterior and lateral delts nicely, but also beginning to feel an ache in my right delt/biceps tendon. Skipping a little slower during this quadset. A little heavier dumbbell for the Weighted Crunches. A little "wobbly" with the Reverse Curls and on the first set I nearly fell off the bench, which is a first. Pikes were good - feeling them today, and on the first set noticed that my SHINS were "sweating", LOL, which I found amusing, but also indicative of how hot it was (or maybe how hard I was working). Again, I was literally dripping when I finished my weights, but it felt GOOD and I didn't mind...Finished off on the Recline Bike, spinning ok. Right superiomedial knee aching a little from the twelfth minute, but it wasn't that bad...Back to the hotel, where I only spent 10 minutes in the sauna - ALREADY so hot I didn't need to get HOTTER - before going back to my room to stretch...Surprisingly enough, my body actually felt BETTER post-training than before, which was welcome, finding myself a little calmer but not completely...


    OTHER NOTES

    Supplements

    Received a present last night at the gym, so I was able to start back on Alpha-T2 today (changes reflected in post #1).

    I won't turn around, can't be afraid...Innocence gone, can't be the same...


    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." - Marianne Williamson, A Return To Love

    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Run 4 miles @ 5 min/mile pace

    Stretch 20 min

    Bed at 0108, waking at 0330 and 0430, finally getting up just after 0500, giving me just over three hours sleep overall. Fresh though...Headed to the gym in reasonable spirits. Got there and went out on the road for my HIIT Run. Sprints were not fast-fast, but they were ok. Did a few more and added in several longer ones as well, just to ensure intensity and volume...Then to the weights. Using quadsets again, making sure it was non-stop go-go-go. Surprisingly didn't really feel my abs too much on Rope Crunches or the Ab Rollout, but feeling my left hip pop and "resonate" in my left lower back during Pikes. Skipping rapid. Sheen of sweat on my face during and after QuadSet A, vascularity popping, and ready for the roadmap that appeared on my arms during QuadSet B. DB Zottoman Curls were a grit of teeth, my left wrist starting to ache on the last set, but pushing through. Used the same weight as yesterday re V-Bar Tricep Push-Down and fared better, enjoying the definition (left side definitely stronger than my right here). Same weight as yesterday re Alternate DB Hammer Bicep Curls and forced out more reps with as well, loving the definition and pump from them. Skipping still fast. Went five pounds lighter than yesterday re Rear Flyes and did a lot better. Just a single large plate in front of me today for Hammer Raises, surprised that it almost felt light, but not towards the end, and certainly not on the last set. Again, Alternate Plate Single-Arm Lateral Raises - these hurt me the most and on the tenth rep of the second set my right shoulder cracked/popped loudly and I was in pain from then on, close to tears at one point during my third set, determined to keep going no matter what. Skipping frustrated, annoyed at myself, light-headed after the first set, having to "catch myself" on a bench from falling over at the sudden spinning...Finished off with a 4-mile Run outside (since the Recline Bike was in use when I was done with my weights), enjoying it...Back to the hotel to stretch. Then into the sauna for 25 minutes, before heading out to the spa for my last "leg massage". Afterwards, stayed in the spa and held myself under the water, the roar of the jets through the water pounding in my head. It was actually EASIER to hold myself under here than in the pool, and I was able to hold my breath a lot longer, staying under for FIVE minutes! Felt refreshed and calm afterwards...Which is good, because I have ~18 hours of traveling ahead of me today/tomorrow...


    OTHER NOTES

    Body Composition

    8.5% bodyfat - a loss of 0.7% in FOUR days! Which is AWESOME (even though it doesn't feel like it to me, not completely, especially when I scrutinize myself in the mirror)! Now to lose 0.7% bodyfat more over the next 5-6 days and I will be sweet (and very pleased). Girths today are not a lot different than a few days ago, albeit there is a little change - that said, last night was my "refeed/cheat" meal (yes, MEAL - and within the Lean Gains 16-hour fast/8-hour feeding window too), so could have some effect on this. I still want to lose >1.2 inches from each my waist, hips, and both thighs though (and I will - hopefully by the time I work with Walt)!

    You are the definition of determination incarnate. I am always floored by your work, intensity and performance. Nice swing on the bodyfat dropping .7% in a week that is awesome at your already low bodyfat.

    Thank you, Chris - that is a real compliment coming from you I'm back following my 16-hour fast/8-hour feeding window (re Lean Gains - the only thing I use from it), and, like the first time I used it, it definitely makes a DIFFERENCE (not 1.1% bodyfat loss like what happened over five days the the very first time I used it, but pretty damn good, and the second best fat loss progress I have ever had!) Only thing is I don't FEEL like I am there, or that the loss has been that much, and still feel like I am closer to 9%, but maybe that's just from all the food last night, LOL, since I was feeling pretty good (and confident) after training last night. But, thank YOU - since you're the one who put me onto Lean Gains (and Lyle) in the first place.

    Only if it was me, LOL, since there is NO individual like me in the world. Nor was or will there ever be

    On that note, I started DCP [again] today (changes reflected in post #1). I also had to give my body a day OFF training due to the circumstances, and tomorrow's training is likely to be very late, and even run into Sunday. The next five days are going to interesting - EVERY minute from now on is of the utmost importance and I have to do what I can to make them count as much as possible!

    Yes, Matt does - he has been very good to me and I'm truly grateful for his support

    Thanks, David - I HOPE so! Of all the times for it to happen as well - and you guys may not want to know, LOL - but on top of everything (and seriously had me pissed) and of all the INopportune times for it to happen, I got my period late on Thursday, which means that it will be done the day before or on the day I work with Walt, which is so very far from funny, and I am hoping like hell that I can get rid of ANY water weight I might have from it!

    Everything - and I literally mean EVERYthing (after the accident on Thursday night, I am still in transition and training has not been able to happen, and won't be able to until I get back to Wisconsin - praying no later than tomorrow morning!) - seems AGAINST me right now, but I canNOT let it bring me down! I CANNOT! I'm truly being tested right now - the next week will see how strong I really am, the end of April whether or not I've got what it takes, because even though I get a chance to breathe for a few days at the start of May, life has NO intention of "settling" down, and it's GO-time until I don't know when

    I am keeping these verses close right now: "'For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.'" - Jeremiah 29:11-13

    Yeah, I hate it when I get mine right before a big event lol. Sorry, I know I cannot understand, but I can sympathize, I singlehandedly raised my daughter through Highschool and witnessed the things that time of the month does to a woman, emotionally and physically. Hope the symptoms are minimal. Accident? I missed that, I've been busy and have been experiencing some personal turmoil of my own this week. Are you ok? I am at work and cannot go back to review. Hope everything is ok. Keep the faith, you have a lot of people pulling for you.

    Very funny Yes, well, I never really used to get it - I had the symptoms, but rarely bled. Oddly enough - and just another example of how screwed up my body is - ever since I've been in the US and been using products with AI properties, it's almost like clockwork, and I seriously HATE it and wish it was the way it was before!

    Yes, there was a freak incident. As I mentioned on Facebook (and it's all I will say): "...simply, I was told afterwards that the smallest difference in speed - any faster... - was the difference between life and death. If THAT doesn't make one believe in God, I don't know what does, but I DO know that a flicker of faith has been born in another because of this - sometimes it takes the most drastic measures for God to get one's attention and I hate that it happened this way, but for the seed of faith that has been planted, my soul smiles. Anyways, after this - as if I haven't done enough of it ALREADY over the last month or so - I am stepping even FURTHER back to reevaluate my life and take time out to truly and COMPLETELY process everything. God is NOT done with me yet and I want to do the BEST I can with EVERY chance and opportunity He has given - and will give - me. Thank you all of you who He has placed in my life - God Bless...Life is a PRECIOUS gift. DON'T waste it!!!"

    I have to believe I am going through all of this for a reason, even though for the life of me I cannot see the bigger picture and haven't the faintest clue as to even remotely WHY right now.

    I hope you have a good weekend, David, and thank you for everything.

    God is never done with us, and there is a reason for everything. He has given us license to choose what path we should take but reminds us which is the right one. The purpose in life...? To grow stronger spiritually so we can be closer to him. How to do that ...? Well life has trials, avoid vices and instant gratification that promise short term comfort but long term pain. Take on obstacles that have short term discomfort but long term gain. It's tough and nobody's perfect at it, but I know in my heart it's the right answer.

    I like the way you're thinking Rosie and the discomfort you feel now will pay off as time goes by and life does get easier when we take the right path.

    Thank you for the words of encouragement and affirmation of my heart's thoughts, Doug. Yes, God is NOT done with me yet, I definitely believe that. And I am slowly learning more and more that it's OK to share my struggles, instead of hiding them away, because I know that sometimes what you see me having done is in conflict with how I'm feeling and what I might say, even though they are all me as I am.

    On another note, this on top of the last few weeks (and that "red" visit, GRRR) has seriously messed with my preparation for Florida and I now have only THREE days to do the best I can to get as lean as I can - I may not get as lean as I want, but I lost 0.7% bodyfat in four days last week, so I NEED to do that AGAIN over the NEXT four days! Going to go as HARD as I can and HOPE like hell that I can pull this OFF!

    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    "The enemy fights you the hardest when he knows that God has something great in store for you." - Jamie Eason

    For the complete Motivational, review When You Come Close To Dying | Rosie's MuscleRevolution.


    TRAINING

    Friday

    Day OFF

    Saturday

    HIIT Run:
    a. 4 min jogging
    b. 12 x 50 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    c. 4 min jogging

    Stretch 20 min

    Sunday

    HIIT Run:
    a. 4 min jogging
    b. 30 x 20 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    c. 4 min jogging

    Stretch 33 min

    Training has not gone as planned because of "complications" during my travel this week (which was supposed to be ONLY Thursday, but ended up not ending until earlier today), and by all rights I should NOT still be alive after what happened on Thursday night, but by the Grace of God I AM, and thankful for it. So, the next three days are going to be a helter-skelter of hellacious training to "make up" (pretty much almost an entire week's worth of training crammed into THREE days, with those days also using EXTREME dieting) for the last three days (see below), hoping that my stress DEcreases and I will be ok come THIS Thursday when I work with Walt...


    OTHER NOTES

    If I was the body composition and measurements I was a month ago (yes, before I started G8 - not that it is entirely the cause, since I am the one who ultimately controls my discipline and I did not, so it is my own fault) I would not have to "last minute" hope and pray that I'd be "ok" for next week's shoots (which yes, are all very important). The plan is to ALWAYS be have BETTER conditioning for each consecutive shoot than the one before - at least I know I will have MORE muscle mass in my delts and arms than I did last year, even if I do not end up being as lean as I want (which I am still aiming for). If I can do what I did last week and lose 0.7% bodyfat in four days, I'll be fine...

    Wow Rosie close call indeed. So glad your ok, and yes GOD is Real! To many live their lives thinking God has left us or doesn't care, but it us that has left his side. I truthfully believe his around us every second grasping us with his arms. The world itself has lost respect for God and life itself. Hope your workouts kick butt, but don't kill yourself!!

    Yes, it was - I was told on Friday morning that I should have been dead and it was a miracle I was alive, let alone unharmed. Yes, He is definitely real - I have grown up with Him, so have always had that faith, but not everyone has and does. Even when I feel completely alone I know He is always there - sometimes it doesn't feel like it though and I have to remind myself that even if He appears distant, there is a reason for that as well. I know He wants me to be strongER - the last few years, especially the last few months, have shown that, and I HAVE been SO close to my breaking point this year, but...

    I HAVE to make them hard. I am 8.5% bodyfat and I want to be 7.8% by first thing Thursday (I know - talk about stressing myself out)...AND holding water terribly - now need to lose AT LEAST TWO inches from each my waist, hips, each thigh (and chest) before then as well...PLUS ~15 pounds (water REALLY needs to go - and a LOT of fat as well)...

    Yes, they can, and it certainly makes you give serious evaluation of your life in a moment. If anything, I know more than ever what I want now, and it has only made me more determined to have it, do it, and be it!

    You have your work cut out for you as far as getting water off do you have any water tricks you plan on employing to help out? Lots of asparagus will help get rid of some of the water. You could also do the hot bath with epson salts to pull some of the sub-q water off your body too.

    I am actually surprised with you being under 10% that you are even still having your cycle. I often read about women sub 10% saying they don't have their menstrual cycles anymore. Several times I wanted to ask but didn't want to seem intrusive.

    I'm using Taraxatone at 9 caps daily - that usually helps me a lot (although I generally use 6 caps daily for five days and not 9 caps for three days). Cutting out the carbohydrates from now on as well - all I will get is what is the minimal amount from my almonds and MuscleGels.

    You can always ask anything you want to, Chris - anyone can, and I will or will not answer it. As far as my cycle, I've had it regularly since I've been in the US (and started using products with AI properties, to be more precise - even more screwed up) - just another thing that indicates the anomaly my body is. I know, I've read the same thing many times and heard it said that, and also the fact that if a female misses it she has the Female Athlete Triad, etc., which I know in my case could not be further from the truth, because UNDEeating has never been an issue with me. That said, there are always exceptions to the "norm", and everything should ALWAYS be taken on an individual basis.

    Right, time for my first resistance session of the day - doing Arms/Abs first, Shoulders/Hamstrings later this evening.

    Sounds like you have a good plan. That taraxatone is no joke, if you are holding water it should take care of it for sure.

    Chris wait and see how you look after the EPI-V, I never got that much drying using the quick methods like I did with the slow method epi-v afforded me. Yah taraxatone is strong but it can leave you flat, I had some luck recovering some extra carbs and potassium the first time I tried it....

    Indeed it is not, and it is the ONLY diuretic product that I have used (and yes, I tried several - just to see if they did the same when one I used when I couldn't get Taraxatone caused me to HOLD water) that works WITH my body, so I treat it like gold, especially now that it has been discontinued. I hope it helps!

    Chris will be ok, Doug, but I need that "quick fix" (as much as I hate to say it) this week, and besides, I'm not going to go the hormonal route to get dry. Once this week is over though, I'm going to just make sure I DO GET LEANER, and hope that helps me dry out more (should, with the help of Erase - which I have gone back to using 2/2/1 this week instead of Erase Pro in the morning and Erase 2/1 pm).

    Oh yah I know, I used a quick hitter last year as I waited too long after finishing EPI-V to peak.. to tell you the truth it never occurred to me to try a slower method. I would live to know how much dandelion root they are using in EPI-V to cause this slower effect. Mght be a combination of the DHT precursor and herb though. Later when I compared my Epi-V peak to my contest peak it was obvious that I was drier with the Epi-v but you know what they say about hindsight. This year I wll peak for pics at the right time. Live and learn. I don't know if these products that work faster really work for me anyway. They seem to work better for others than they do for me. Fuggin water management in the body drives me batty..

    Got my sights locked in...


    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    "I'm training until I fall apart." - Kim Wathen

    For the complete Motivational, review Until I Fall Apart| Rosie's MuscleRevolution.


    TRAINING

    Session 1

    Run 3 miles

    Arms/Abs (30 sec recovery between trisets):
    TriSet A -
    1. Close-Grip BB Bicep Curls 5 x 6
    2. Dips 5 x 8
    3. Skip 5 x 100 revolutions
    TriSet B -
    4. Incline Alternate DB Bicep Curls 5 x 10, 10, 10, 9, 8 per side
    5. Rope Tricep Push-Down 5 x 8, 8, 8, 8, 6
    6. Skip 5 x 100 revolutions
    TriSet C -
    7. DB Zottoman Curls 5 x 8
    8. Standing DB French Press 5 x 8, 6, 6, 6, 6
    9. Skip 5 x 100 revolutions
    TriSet D -
    10. Weighted DB Crunch (on bench, knees at 90 degrees) 5 x 15
    11. Pikes (on bench) 5 x 15
    12. Skip 5 x 100 revolutions
    QuadSet -
    13. Standing Alternate DB Hammer Bicep Curls 1 x 30
    14. Push-Ups (feet on floor, hands on fists under chest) 1 x 8
    15. Plank x 1 min
    16. Skip x 100 revolutions

    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Recline Bike 20 min @ 110-112 rpm

    Stretch 27 min

    Actually went to bed EARLY (well, early for me) last night and didn't take me long to fall asleep either - guess the stress is at the point where my mind just wants to shut down, but can't, although it will now allow for some hibernation. Woke a couple of times in the morning, but eventually got ~8 hours sleep and woke feeling slightly refreshed. Took me a while to get going, but once I did...Familiar route was ran on this morning. Weather is a good ~30 degrees Fahrenheit LESS here than in Texas, which suits me just fine (doesn't make running outside hard on my breathing), and run was ok. Not the fastest, given that I gained ~10 pounds from yesterday to this morning - a lot of it food and water weight though - and was feeling sluggish...Then to the gym, oh so ready to hit the weights (three days without a resistance session is almost like torture)! Did Arms/Abs instead of Shoulders/Hamstrings (relegated to pm training), making sure it was non-stop-on-the-go time. After last week I was shocked to find that my strength re Close-Grip BB Bicep Curls has gone down again, barely managing the six reps I did for each set, having to do the last couple of reps on the last couple of sets as half-reps, left wrist aching. Dips were fine, and given my increase in overall body mass, showing strength is fine here. Skipping was a little bit of an effort and my trackies kept "catching" the rope, which did not make for a good mood with it. Incline Alternate DB Bicep Curls were fine - seeing the double-veins in my biceps here and enjoying the pump. There was no V-Bar at the gym, so used the rope instead re Tricep Push-Downs. Skipping was frustrating and I had to go slower. DB Zottoman Curls were fine - strength up from last week. DB French Press was ok - right rear delt started pinching sharply from the third set though. Skipping finally falling into a rhythm here. Abs were all fine - not really feeling it too much today, which was a bit odd. Added in a quadset to complete my session, making sure I could feel the burn and pain - definitely felt on the Plank re delt/biceps' tendons in BOTH arms...Because I have to, 20 minutes on the Recline Bike - burning my legs and dripping sweat like tears - ended Training Session 1...

    Session 2

    HIIT Run:
    a. 4 min jogging
    b. 8 x 20 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    c. 4 min jogging

    Shoulders/Hamstrings (30 sec recovery between supersets):
    SuperSet A -
    1. Behind-the-neck BB Military Press 6 x 10, 10, 10, 10, 8, 8
    2. Skip 6 x 100 revolutions
    SuperSet B -
    3. BB Military Press 6 x 8
    4. Skip 6 x 100 revolutions
    SuperSet C -
    5. Plate Lateral Raises 6 x 10
    6. Skip 6 x 100 revolutions
    SuperSet D -
    7. Stiff-Legged BB Deadlifts (BB to touch floor) 6 x 10
    8. Skip 6 x 100 revolutions

    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Rollers 20 min in 39x18 @ 120 rpm

    Wasn't really feeling it when I headed out to start off my Training Session 2. HIIT was ok - short today, since I DID do two HIIT Runs on the weekend...Then down to the basement to hit the weights. Behind-the-neck BB Military Press was ok until the third set, when my right rear delt started stinging sharply - managed to force out another set of 10 reps before the pain limited the last two sets on reps. BB Military Press was ok, although less reps than last week, feeling in my right anterior delt a grinding, albeit without pain. Right delt was starting to be an overall hassle by the time it came to Plate Lateral Raises and I just wanted them over and done with. I was tempted to not even do the Stiff-Legged BB Deadlifts, but did them because I have to. Lightheaded during most of my skipping, definitely noticing the difference in not having used Assault pre-training (noticed this morning as well - especially re energy and alertness) - although could also have something to do with the fact that it was my SECOND resistance session for today...Finished off on the rollers - how happy I am be able to use MY bike again (completely different to using a Recline Bike or Spin Bike or any other kind of bike a fitness facility might have - NOTHING comes close). Spun away at a reasonable pace, heated and dripping by the end...
