Vilkacis - Hammering the weights for the holidays


Vilkacis

Recommended Posts

I've been predominantly doing body weight thru the last challenge, but I love weights, and have decided over the holidays to throw some around, get a feel for what I can do again.

I'll be doing this with my buddy AshPS, who I know will support and shove me back to the front if I start to slip! :)

The plan is for a three day a week workout, full body routine. And as promised to my buddy who I have slipped on with posts in the last challenge, I shall post my workout deets when completed!

Okay!  So...I regret to admit that I failed today.  Miserably.  hahaha HOWEVER, there is a caveat.  I need to clean up my workout area, or at least tidy up around it so I can actually 1) do a workout and B) have the motivation to go and do one.  I had every intention of doing so today, then hammering one.  My wife had other plans,  She convinced me to clean up and tidy the kitchen area with her instead, which took forever as I'm neurotic about organization sometimes, and as such I never got the opportunity to go downstairs and do my clean.  What this means is that tomorrow, and I've already told/asked her this, I shall be going downstairs when my daughters wake up, and doing my "spring" clean and pounding those weights.  And that's the bottom line, because..well, because it's how it's gonna be.  :D  

 

 

Congrats to my buddy Ash though for nailing hers!  She is and always will be my motivator/slave driver!  :)  hahaha

Okay, update time!

So I did do a workout tonight. Though it was nothing awe inspiring, unfortunately, as the task of tidying up my exercise area was far more daunting than I had anticipated and so I ended up not being able to start until almost 9. Did a few barbell presses, just bar for a warmup, then upped it to 125lb and did 3 sets of 12. Then did a few sets of bodyweight squats and lunges, followed by a few sets of crunches. I know, all in all a wimpy workout, but now that I've got my area clean, I'm gonna destroy my next one! :D

Sorry I didn't perform to max capacity Ash, but I will do so next!!

Workout is complete!! Woohoo! And it was definitely not as wimpy as the last one. ;) hahaha Though, and I know I shouldn't be doing this, it was discouraging not being able to hit the numbera I've had in the past.. hahaha Dumb head of mine. Didn't let it get me TOO down, though!

I have all the stats saved in my Jefit account, and I shall post them tomorrow, but it is DONE, and I feel great! Hope everyone had a great night!

Hahahaha Thanks, Ash. I'm also a bit bigger than you, mind. :P On my inverted rows I have a bar mounted between my workout benches, about 2 feet off the floor, and I just lift off the floor to it.

Good morning, Vilkacis! :-)

 

I just wanted to pop in and say that I think you are awesome for doing the mini challenge AND killing it!

You rock, man! \m/ \m/

 

Very nice numbers, even if they might not be yet what you were used to before. You'll be getting back to those real quick, methinks!

 

Keep up the good work! :encouragement:
