I'll make this update short as the green tea coupled with the workout made me sick as well as with heartburn.
We started with a step up board with one hand on it and one on floor we did a push up then thrust up in air to land with the opp hand on board and floor, did 6 per side for 4 sets.
Then we did a burpee holding a 6lb ball on the way up we jumped in the air with ball overhead for 15 reps, 4 sets.
Then we did 10 machine presses with 60 ab kick steps on a bench for 4 sets.
Then we did a triple set of dumbell flyes for 15 reps with 10 flat barbell bench and 6 pop push ups onto the step for 4 sets.
And that was all... Cardio was done for 35 min in the am.

I am really NOT looking forward to back day! I injured my shoulder Tue and made it worse on chest day. I can only image back day being full of things to hurt me.

Well I was a good girl and sucked it up.
We tailored it to less painful motions.
Started with a single dumbell dead at 10 per arm alternating arms into a squat to pick it up for 4 sets.
Then we did dumbell pull throughs for 10 reps with a single dumbell chest row for 15 reps and 4 sets.
Then I did 6 single arm bent over rows per arm at 4 sets.
Then we did 15 seated low rows with a plank held to Nats choice in between for4 sets.
Then due to the shoulder we called it good

Oh, come on! Where's that warrior spirit I usually see?! lol
So, how you been lately? I see you had a "bout" a couple of days ago. How's your progress for the Arnold? BTW, is it just because it's the Arnold or do you have to "get fit" for something in particular? Hey, look at me - Mr. Nosey!

The company has business meetings so hence wanting to be in shape. I'll be meeting people that I've never met. As far as muscle goes I'm good. Bodyfat I'm not happy with but I'll get there. It would be easier if I wasn't forced to entertain business meetings with people that want to drink. But mainly I'm doing for me.

Started with tricep pushdowns backed up to a pad at 40lbs for 15 reps supersetted with 10 on the weighted dip machine at 130lbs for 4 sets.
Then we did reverse wide grip curl pushdowns for 15 reps at 40lbs and 4 sets.
Then we took the squishy half reebok balls about 25ft apart and went down into a burpee style tricep pushup got up skipped sideways to the other one and did the same thing for 10 burpee things a set supersetted with 20lb dumbell tricep kickbacks for 15 reps and 3 sets.
Then we hit the bar in the deadlift rack and put it on the 2nd up rund and did tricep pop push ups for 10 reps then stood up and curled the bar for 10 reps and 4 sets.
Then we did standing alternating supinated dumbell curls for 20lb and 15reps for 4 sets.
Then we did a single burnout set of flat curls for 30 reps.
I did 15 min of am cardio and will probably do more later.

I did an hour on the elliptical today to punish myself for doing no cardio for so long
01-23-2010, 07:06 PM
I need to do more than that for punishment for our business meetings that don't have the same goals as I do physique wise...for the love of money ???

So while I was out I ran into a trainer who has not seem me in awhile. He said I have put on muscle. So while thats not my goal, its better than fat. I can see my abs now so I'm still leaning out.

It was nice to hear I had gained muscle. Sometimes its hard to be objective when you look in the mirror. So when the scale said I was up 4lbs I was thinking of all the cardio and protein I have had thinking, fat gain how...
01-25-2010, 10:02 AM
yeah, looking at the scale too closely can drive you batty

So for the last month I'm going to attempt to do 2 cardio sessions in addition to my 5 days a week of weights. I still will not look the way I desire for the Arnold but I will at least look as good as I can. However if I start to drop muscle I will drop back to one session as muscle is more important to me.

Luckily its not THAT much fat!!
Leg day was great for me..no sickness!!
We started with 4 sets of 15 rep leg extensions.
Then we moved to the bench and did alternating step ups at 10 per leg with 10 squatted jump ups with both feet landing together on bench for 4 sets.
Then we did standing curls for 35lb for 10 per leg with 30 rep 90 degree leg presses at 45lbs for 2 sets and then the last 2 sets of the 4 were 135lbs for 15 reps.
Then we did 10 per leg on standing lunges with barbell deadlifts for 15 reps and 4 sets.
Calves will be done later and cardio was 30 min morning cardio. I hope to do a second round of it later.
