    Well.....you look like you've added muscle and gotten leaner!! Very nice!!


  2. Just like the acoustics in the bathroom make my singing better, I think the lighting makes my back look leaner lol

    [SOTD]: PSY - GANGNAM STYLE
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bZkp7q19f0

    ^ Reminds me of LMFAO, Korean style. I love that he's doing the pony; it's so ridiculous

    OHP 2x5 @ 35lbs, 3x5 @40lbs
    DL [email protected] 72 lbs, [email protected], 1x5 @ 92lbs
    DB Step Ups 3x10 @ 18lbs each
    RDL 3x12 @ 52lbs

    Superset:
    Reverse Lunges 3x10 @ 18lbs each
    BB Calf Raises 3x15 @ 70lbs

    RKC Planks 3x45sec

    Been about 2 months since I've done deadlifts or squats because of hip issues. With the carb load yesterday as well as dosing Super Cissus RX for the past few days, I wanted to try and incorporate them back into my workout today. I went light but it felt pretty good doing them again! Don't know if I will be doing them regularly, maybe once every other week, but at least I know I can do them without feeling pain throughout the movement.

    I also bought a Stability ball and it's the only thing I sit on now because it's comfortable on my hips. I also attempted to do Swiss ball leg curls. Let me just say, WOW, really felt it in my hammies! I was only able to do 2 sets of 3 - it's hard to balance myself and I kept falling off lol.

  5. All about the lighting and getting the good side, like this shining example!

    Bent Over BBR 3x12 @52lbs
    BB Floor Press 1x12 @ 40, 2x12 @45lbs
    Kneeling Landmine Press 3x12 @ 40lbs
    BW Chair Dips 10,7
    Tricep EZ Curl Extensions 3x12 @16lbs
    RKC Plank 45,45,30sec


    Workout lacked energy and motivation. One of those days where I felt like I was just going through the motions. Felt a bit of tightness in my chest during dips, right after Floor BB press, so I stopped at 2 sets and switched to EZ Tricep Curl extensions.

  7. THURSDAY LOG

    1 hr tennis

    RDL 3x12 @52lbs
    DB Step Ups 3x10 @18 lbs
    1 hour tennis for cardio

    Today's workout was meant for yesterday but I fell asleep early, and didn't wake up until 10 p.m. Woke up, ate some pickles, a cucumber and a tablespoon of PB and went back to bed lol. It felt great though! My body really needed the rest. Most nights I have trouble sleeping for numerous reasons, but I was able to sleep soundly last night so I took full advantage of that. And I think because of that I had a much better workout today. I've missed doing deads, it felt good to do those again. I've got to remind myself to keep the bar closer to my body when pulling, I felt it a bit in my lower back on the last set/last rep.

  9. SUN LOG

    50 min Zumba
    3x30sec RKC Plank
    BW Renegade Rows 3x10

    Gotta up the cardio! Attempted some swiss ball hamstring curls buuut they are still super sore after DL/RDL last night!

    BBR + planks at the end of my workout felt weaksauce today! I'll probably add in a few more planks later tonight once I've eaten. Absolutely no motivation to work out today, that is until about 5 minutes prior when I ate a fun sized butter finger! Haha that's bad! I know!

    When I have no motivation I usually promise myself a steak after my workout and it usually works...

    I try to eat sweets sparingly (I realize I had a butterfinger last night lol. I fit it in my macros!) so something like that would get me off the couch That and getting dressed in my workout clothes to put me in that state of mind. I'm already dressed so now I HAVE to work out lol.

    They were good! I did them using a DB, laying down with back to the floor. Not much strain on my shoulders like Tricep EZ Curl Extensions. Like this:

    [SOTD]: MOTIVATION Be Great, Powerful Beyond Measure II (someone had posted this in the forum a few weeks back!)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STp1UtMrKR4


    OHP 1x5 @ 35lbs, 4x5 @40lbs
    DL [email protected] 82 lbs, [email protected], 1x5 @ 112lbs, [email protected]
    DB Step Ups 3x10 @ 18lbs each
    RDL 1x12 @ 52lbs, 2x12 @62lbs

    Superset:
    Reverse Lunges 3x10 @ 18lbs each
    BB Calf Raises 3x15 @ 70lbs

    20 min LISS Jogging


    Went super hard today! Deadlifts wore me out - my arms and legs were shaking after my last set. I used the SOTD to get me through RDL and supersets at the end of my workout... let me just say it really pumped me up. I was so concentrated during RDL and super sets that at the end of my super sets everything (sweat, tears, pain) just hit me like a train and amplified all my emotions. I don't know what it was, nor can I explain it, but the speech really hit me right in the heart.

    Anyway! So as if I didn't think almost passing out after supersets was enough, I figured I would throw in a LISS session too! Yay... Well, it's been a while since I've jogged and I had very little endurance - it was kind of embarrassing! I only found my stride about 3/4 of the way in. All in all, this work out kicked my ass and I have a feeling I will be very sore tomorrow...

  17. THUR LOG

    40 min kickbox cardio
    3x45 sec planks
    3x10 swiss ball pike*

    Didn't have trouble keeping up with the cardio at all, but about 30 min in my knees were giving me problems. Been massaging them since I finished.

    *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!

  18. Damn looks like you've really been killing it. Keep up the good work.

    Hey you!! Been wondering where ya went! Good to see you again friend, and thank you - it's been a whirlwind journey! I've been logging LG Rezolution Extreme as well. (in my sig if you're interested).

  20. Yeah I've been reading it. I'm also glad to see you've been working them deads and squats back in lol

  21. next time you do planks try reversing them. sit on a bench and lean back, pulling your feet off the ground and straighten as much as you can into a plank balancing only on your butt.


    kills.

    you've been doing good work, keep it up.

    BBR 3x12 @ 52 lbs
    DB Floor Press 3x12 @ 22 lbs
    DB Skull Crushers 4x12 @ 22 lbs
    Reverse Flys 3x10 @ 10 lbs each
    1 hour tennis


    Haven't had a good night's rest in maybe 4 days. Blahh.. so my energy levels are definitely lacking! Pepped myself up and once I got going with bb rows I was just determined to finish. I was more interested in tennis at that point lol; it's been raining for days and today we had glorious sunshine! Skull crushers felt strong and I even threw in an extra set

  24. MON LOG [yesterday]:

    OHP 1x5 at 40lbs, [email protected] 45lbs
    DL [email protected] 72, [email protected] 92, [email protected] 102, [email protected] 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!
