  8. So Monday's workout was great (see prior entry), after that I took my wife & kiddos camping to the City of Rocks in eastern Idaho (i'm on vacation this week). Didn't sleep very well whilst camping. Came back Tuesday around dinner time and by the time my Wednesday morning workout came around, I was waaaaaay tired. So I decided to skip it. I decided. I own up to it. Also decided to do my workout TODAY instead. So, no real slacking. I'm just calling Wednesday an extra rest day for all the awesomeness of Monday. So, for your reading pleasure, my workout for today, which included ANOTHER PR and...AND I switched it up a bit. Whaaaaaat? Lunges: (with the Bar...I know, right??) 45 x 5 x 1 (5/leg alternating left/right) 55 x 5 x 1 65 x 5 x 1 75 x 5 x 1 85 x 5 x 1 Bench: 45 x 10 x 1 105 x 5 x 1 135 x 5 x 2 140 x 5 x 1 Dead Lift: 45 x 5 x 1 95 x 5 x 1 135 x 5 x 2 145 x 5 x 1 Pulls/Negs: 4/1, 3/2, 1/4, 0/5, 0/5 No run today, busy day playing with the kiddos!
  9. Awesome that you are back! The 5min bike ride distance to the gym is a bonus, I wish my gym was that close by bike! I'd use that as a nice intro-warm up before my "dynamic" warm up. Keep at it, girl!
  10. Sunday I had a good 2.5hr combatives session, that was fun as always. TODAY I hit the gym again. Squats: 45 x 5 x 1 85 x 5 x 1 115 x 5 x 3 - Still feel weak on these sets, but getting stronger. Am holding off adding weight for now. Press: 45 x 5 x 1 55 x 5 x 1 65 x 5 x 1 75 x 5 x 2 Dead Lift: 45 x 5 x 1 95 x 5 x 1 135 x 5 x 2 145 x 5 x 1 Chin Ups/Negs: 5/0, 3/2, 1/4, 1/4, 0/5 Bonus Round: Mile Run (again! I've got a little extra time so why the efff not!) Feeling good!
  11. Independence Day Workout Bitches! Got up at 530am and went to work like a damn boss. Squat: 45 x 5 x 2 85 x 5 x 1 115 x 5 x 2 Bench Press: 45 x 10 x 1 85 x 5 x 1 105 x 5 x 1 135 x 5 x 2 - Felt even better than Wednesday! BAM! Dead Lift: 45 x 5 x 1 95 x 5 x 1 135 x 5 x 3 - Felt GREAT! Chin Ups/Negs: 5/0 3/2 1/4 0/5 0/5 Bonus Round: 1 Mile Run Jog first two laps, walked the third, jog fourth, ran fifth. DONE
  12. PRs, one of life's awesome ways of show you how far you've come. WTF is it with going in cycles with lack of sleep? So, after a disappointing Mon/Tues with not working out due to little sleep, I got my arse up out of bed and went to work at the gym! Squats: 45 x 5 x 2 85 x 5 x 2 115 x 5 x 2 Bench Press: 45 x 10 x 1 85 x 5 x 1 105 x 5 x 1 135 x 5 x 2 - Plated me a serving of 45s today muthafucka! The last two reps on each set were a small struggle but not much, had a trainer spotting me just in case. Dead Lift: 45 x 5 x 1 95 x 5 x 1 115 x 5 x 1 135 x 5 x 2 - second serving of 45s today! The DL's on these last two sets felt VERY good. Slow & steady is winning the race for me right now! Pull Ups/Negs: 4/1 (barely a 4th rep, but I got it up!) 3/2 1/4 0/5 0/5 Dynamic warm up done pre-workout and cool down stretches done post, as per usual. DONE! Gains in strength made over the last month: Deadlifts: 135lbs 40lb gain Squats: 115lbs 20lb gain Bench: 135lbs 10lb gain Chins: 5 3 rep gain Pulls: 4 3 rep gain
  13. Almost done with this last month's worth of training, about to enter the final month before the Dash. Lifting tomorring and then Thursday, this weeks lifts will be the final numbers on my progress for solely focusing on the bar. I know I've gone slower than I anticipated, but I think part of that is due to not wanting to EFFF IT UP! Haha. June 3, 2014 when I switched gears and focused soley on the bar, these were my results on the "work" sets (heaviest weighted sets). They aren't 1RMs as I don't know how to quantify that since a) I haven't ever attempted that, and there usually isn't someone available to help me test that. Work Sets June 3 & 5, 2014 Squat: 95lbs Bench: 125lbs Deadlift: 95lbs Press: 45lbs Pulls: 1 Chins: 3
