Awww Rosie and Chuck, hugs!!
My oldest daughter has a DARE graduation tonight that she wants to attend so I'll be hitting the gym earlier today for chest.
The past 2 days I have been waking up wiped out and unmotivated. I'm going to up my methylcobalamin to 3 pellets. They seem to help after I take them and they are sublingual so no pills to swallow

Well she switched days to back apparently
Started with 100lb pulldowns for 10 to the chest using no back swing, strict form. We supersetted these with 15 pull ups reverse grip under the dead rack for 4 sets.
Then we did bent over lat pulldowns for 15 reps supersetted with 55lb dumbell deads only on the way up we twisted it to come in at our side ( these were fun to watch yourself in the mirror as shoulder definition and bicep tricep splits really came out.) We did 10 of them for 4 sets.
We did 15 pop squats with 95lb bent over barbell rows for 4 sets.
Then we did single dumbell between legs and did 10 per side on alternating dumbell deads for 4 sets.
Then we took the dumbell and did between the leg pull throughs for 15 reps.
Can't remember what else I did because I don't write my training down and I did it hours ago and then went to Alyssas school function.

LOL yeah thankfully all the girls that compete don't feel the need to comment or touch because they probably get the same treatment.
Its alyways the non-gym people that get out and want to touch you or harrass you. I actually had 2 young guys say to each other as they passed me that they needed to step outside so they could regain their masculinity. I just rolled my eyes. I don't have time for stupid people.
05-21-2009, 10:53 AM
you should have grabbed them by the balls and let them know they you re-gained their masculinity

Well it was shoulders today
We spent the early half of the day carryig boxes and unpacking the warehouse.
Then I trained shoulders.
Started with 15 rep bent over dumbell reverse flyes for 4 sets.
Then I did 10 per arm of dumbell overhead presses for 10 tripled with 10 dumbell pushups and 15 front raises using the cables with a short bar and pulling it up from the floor elbows bent to chin for 4 sets.
Then I did 10 front raises with 20 lateral pulses for 4 sets.
Then I did 15 candlestick raises with 6 up and outs for 4 sets.
She had all my weights higher than comfortable and I really strugled tonight.
I cant remember what else we did but we ended it in the smith rack and I did standing overhead presses for 15 reps bringing bar to chin level and going over my head with a wide grip. The weight was only 65 lbs, and the first set felt easy.
But these were supersetted with 45lb front barbell shrugs for 20 reps. The second set was harder, the 3rd set I was struggling and wanted to be done. The 4th set I barely made.
However Nat was talking to someone when we did these and she swore we had only done 3 sets. I argued until I was blue and she said fine..we will do 5 then...grrr. This set I had very little left to give so she had to spot me and force reps for the last 5 reps. None of the front shrugs bothered me though.
I mowed the grass and did cardio yesterday.
Matt wants to go on a protein and fats diet with no carbs. Ehh I'm game I guess.

All hunter/gatherer styleWith readily available modern foods, The Paleo Diet mimics the types of foods every single person on the planet ate prior to the Agricultural Revolution (a mere 500 generations ago). These foods (fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and seafood) are high in the beneficial nutrients (soluble fiber, antioxidant vitamins, phytochemicals, omega-3 and monounsaturated fats, and low-glycemic carbohydrates) that promote good health and are low in the foods and nutrients (refined sugars and grains, saturated and trans fats, salt, high-glycemic carbohydrates, and processed foods) that frequently may cause weight gain, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and numerous other health problems. The Paleo Diet encourages dieters to replace dairy and grain products with fresh fruits and vegetables -- foods that are more nutritious than whole grains or dairy products.

Maybe that diet plan seemed to make sense, as its what we are evolutionarily developed to eat. Still dunno, seems like it would be a pain, and a little risky to stick to it really hardcore with most things being raw :P
05-27-2009, 09:13 AM
Oh raw no way!!! gross!
I have a friend that competes on a protein and fats diet, and he looks awesome. He also does not get tired and foggy like you do on a low carb diet. I'm willing to try it, after all how do you know how your body will respond unless you do.

Ok had a bad week so I did not update the log.
Fri I did a full body though.
Today was leg day
We started with 6 per leg of standing leg curls supersetted with 10 100lb laying leg curls for 4 sets.
Then we did 10 per leg of barbell side lunges into a deep squat supersetted with 10 90lb leg extensions for 4 sets.
Then I did 4 sets of 45lb single leg presses at 10 reps per leg.
Then I did barbell work lunged one leg then the other then stood up and deadlifted the barbells as a single rep. Did 4 sets of 15 reps.
Then we did 4 sets of 30 rep 135lb presses.
Then finished with 90lb calve raises at 10 reps pumped and 10 slow and deep for 4 sets of 20 rep total.
Can't remember what else we did its all a blur. I did come home and spend 10 min trying to pull start the mower, I finally got mad and gave up. I'll try in a few minutes. Cardio will be resumed this week as well.
Diet, the new diet better show me something soon. Yes I'm losing fat, but I'm getting soft and dropping muscle as well.
06-01-2009, 07:38 PM
C its the akward phase as described by palumbo lol.... sucks but after your first carb up things should get better...
06-01-2009, 07:43 PM
We didn't go anywhere Stick with it and we should see the good side of it kicking in.
06-01-2009, 08:14 PM
I have managed to avoid legs almost as much as cardio, but today I signed up at LA fitness just to have the leg press + hack squat machines to use instead of what I have at home, so now no excuse. One bad week isn't bad christine
06-01-2009, 11:44 PM
Ah, legs. I have now officially STOPPED all Legs work (now let's see them slim up!)
Know the feeling re diet. The last few weeks I have actually gained more muscle and lost minimal fat (guess it all helps in the long run). Now, the focus is on losing the FAT and stopping this soft porn model look.
You CAN do this! I'm running alongside you

Thanks guys! The bad week was not training or diet related but external issues.
However I do need the support sticking to a carb free diet. I feel better on it , cravings are going away and I'm not tired. But I've lost the tight hard look that I like. Before my muscles were always hard to touch, now i'm soft.
I'll give the diet long enough to be fair, but honestly in the end its about liking what you see in the mirror more than anything.
06-02-2009, 09:07 AM
Oh also I did ,after alot of screaming and cussing the mower , get it started!
So my cardio if you will was 45 min of mowing. I came in covered in sweat. My mower is not self propelled so thats why I count it. Otherwise it would just be cheating.
