    MON LOG [yesterday]:

    OHP 1x5 at 40lbs, 4x5@ 45lbs
    DL 1x5@ 72, 1x5@ 92, 1x5@ 102, 1x5@ 122
    RDL 4x12 @ 62lbs
    DB Step Ups 3x10 @ 18 lbs each
    Reverse Lunges 3x10 @ 18 lbs each
    20 min LISS on treadmill

    Good workout. Again, deads take a lot out of me especially since I start with OHP. The first rep of the last few sets for both OHP and DL are always the hardest for some reason! I feel like I can't pull out that 1 rep, but once I get the first rep up the rest follow more smoothly. Felt a bit of soreness around the hip area when I was on the treadmill so I made sure to foam roll and stretch the crap out of my hammies, quads, and lower back before bed!

    *I was so uncoordinated doing pikes. I attempted them a few times before I could properly balance myself. Kind of advanced for me but it really did hit my core!
    I see you do kickboxing for cardio. Do you do this to a video, or on your own?? Do you have a bag at home??

    At home via YouTube It's a nice change up, but all the kicking/jumping/twisting is hell for my knees so I don't do it too often! In the meantime I'm thinking about taking up something more low impact, like swimming Squeezing into a bathing suit to swim in a public pool does make me a bit anxious though...

    I love kickboxing, especially since it helps you burns about 1,000 calories an hour!! I also LOVE to punch the bag as hard as I possible, pretending it's someone I'm REALLY angry at!! Anyway....if you have bad knees then I bet swimming will be a welcome change. I gotcha on the whole suit thing!!! fun...fun!!

    as a public service announcement i would like to remind everyone reading this to learn how to wrap your wrists before wailing on the heavy bag, lol...

    When i was working out in jersey i was doing timed rounds on a heavy bag and saw a dude sprain his wrist on his opening right hand into the bag...

    As your weight drops and body changes you will feel better about being in a suit.
    I know I do at least.

    Energy: 8/10
    [SOTD]: Wiz Khalifa - This Plane (Whole-Z Remix)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yv_bfgE5U2Y

    Hip hop feel today. Enjoy the track


    Bent over BRR 3x12 @ 52lbs
    DB Floor Press 1x10@ 22lbs, 2x10@27lbs each
    DB SKull Crushers 2x12 @22, 2x12@27lbs

    Superset:
    DB Upright Rows 3x10@12lbs each
    DB Bent over raise 3x10@7lbs each

    3x30 RKC Planks


    Good workout, great energy. Sipped on some bcaa mixed with 1/2 scoop of Jack3d with the intention of working out right away... Somehow I ended up taking a nap right after I drank that lol I must've been tired! Last night I was up at 4:30 a.m. foam rolling/stretching my lower back so didn't get much zzz's. It was a great nap and I woke up feeling calm, refreshed, and ready to hit the weights. I haven't pressed that much weight for floor presses or crushers so that was awesome as well! My tri's were shaking during crushers and my right tricep seems to be the weaker side.

    [SOTD]: Starkillers & Alex Kenji feat. Nadia Ali - Pressure (Alesso Remix)
    Starkillers & Alex Kenji feat. Nadia Ali - Pressure (Alesso Remix).wmv - YouTube


    OHP 3x5@40lbs
    • 2 Drop Sets (6-18/6-20)
      • 40lbs/20lbs


    DL 3x5@ 102lbs

    • 2 Drop Sets (6-20)
      • 102lbs/52lbs


    RDL 1x10@52lbs, 2x10@62lbs

    Superset:
    Reverse Lunges 2x10@15lbs each
    DB Step Ups 2x10 @15lbs each

    20 min incline walk on treadmill


    Decided to mix things up today and add drop sets to my last 2 sets of OHP and DL. OHP was a LOT harder. I'm supposed to do 6 heavy reps, drop the weight by 50% and immediately finish with 20 reps. I could only do 18 reps for the 1st drop set of OHP. Holy cow!! 2nd set of dropsets I was just barely able to do 20! Dropsets for DL was a bit taxing on the lower back but it had me sweating tons! Took a short rest period after RDL and went straight into supersets. My legs were on fire...safe to say I might have trouble walking tomorrow!

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    lol just a little bit that on top of activities on Saturday has me super sore today. I used the 6-20 method just because it was easier to follow. I'm curious to see if those drop sets will have an effect my OHP and DL on Wednesday. Do you work legs much?? I'm trying to lose mass around my thighs and I'm wondering if I should not train them so aggressively and maybe incorporate more cardio or something. Or am I being impatient and need to wait for the bf% to drop first?

    I will usually try and finish with an isolation movement... I have no idea if it really does anything good but i love the way it makes the muscle feel...

    I've never avoided any body part. My whole body has thinned out. Keep working On dropping body fat. Your legs will trim down. Mine did. :-)

    Agree w/ Ms Sawa --Keep doing what your doing!! Eventually you WILL see changes in your thighs. My leg's are the last to go as well and I think a lot of gal's hold more "MASS" ( I like that word) in their lower body. IMO...the harder you work your lower, the quicker you will see changes and the more cardio you do, the quicker you will lose b/fat all over.....

    Just remember that female fat distribution makes you store a lot of fat in your thighs and bum. Your lucky tho as you don't seem to hold much on the back of yours arms keep on keeping on dropping that bf and you'll get there

    Cool thanks!! It's my least favorite body part right now. Trying on dresses the other day made me cringe!!
