Workout (5.19.10)

May 20, 2010 1 comment

My last workout left me pretty sore, so I mixed things up a bit.

Squats: 135×5, 185×5, 235×5, 185×5, 135×10 – my legs felt a little too sore to do 5×5 of 235, so I decided to do a pyramid set.

Overhead Press: 125 4×5, 1×4 – So close!

Cleans: 125 2×5 – just for fun and some cardio

Deadlift: 220×5

Chinups: 3/3/3

Planks: 3 x 1min

Cardio: Walked 2 miles in 30 minutes at work

Workout (5.18.10)

May 18, 2010 4 comments

Today, I had a culinary epiphany, which I’ll share about tomorrow. Suffice to say that I really needed to go the gym tonight. Stronglifts is still going well, and I’m pretty much back where I was prior to my ankle injury. Now I just need to eat better (read: less) or throw in more cardio to get down to my target weight. 😛

Squats: 235 5×5

Bench Press: 175 5×5

Inverted Rows: 10/10/10

Pushups: 37/27/22

Reverse Crunches: 3 x 12

Cardio: Walked 2 miles in 30 minutes at work, 10 minutes on elliptical at gym.

Mid-week Weigh in: 197

Workout (5.12.10)

Alright, time to break up these food posts with a workout log. I’m still keeping up with the stronglifts program, and although I’m getting stronger, all this BBQing is making sure I don’t lose any weight. So I decided to add in cardio to my workouts. Even with 15 minutes of cardio, the entire workout takes no more than an hour.

Squats: 235 5×5 – I’m more or less at my peak for squats. I refuse to be spotted for squats, simply because I’m not too fond of a man’s junk being so close to my butt, but that’s just me…so I’ll probably stay at 235 for a while.

Overhead Press: 120 5×5 – Now that these are getting tougher, I look like I’m taking the dump to end all dumps when I’m doing these.

Deadlift: 215×5

Chinups: 3/3/3

Planks: 3 x 1min

Cardio: Arc Trainer + Treadmill for 15 minutes and calculated calories burned: 200

Midweek Weigh-In: 196lbs. And that’s after having gone to the gym regularly the last few weeks. 😛

Workout (5.3.10)

May 3, 2010 3 comments

One good week deserves another! I’ve got a BBQ coming up this weekend so it’s imperative I get in good shape for meat intake of upwards of 3lbs 😛

Squats: 210 5×5

Overhead Press: 115 5×3, 4, 4 – Couldn’t crank out the last rep on the last 2 sets. 😦 For the stronglifts program, you retry the weight 3 separate times, if you still can’t do it, you deload by 10%

Deadlift: 205×5

Chinups: 3/3/3 – I figured out that these are really hard b/c I gained 10lbs since I did these in January 😛

Planks: 3 x 1min

Sorry for the boring posts today. I’m in training all week for work, so I should be back with some posts on BBQ and a chayote squash recipe next week. Be blessed! 🙂
