Body Building – Wow! I am a slacker


I haven’t posted in 21 days? Whoa! I’ll be honest and say that I have been a little preoccupied the past month or so and haven’t gotten around to posting. I have been going to the gym, but maybe not quite as often. I also have tried a few different workouts that aren’t in this plan so another reason why I haven’t posted.

Yesterday had to be a no excuses day and should be going forward. No matter what’s in store I need to get back on to making this my #1 priority. Summer is coming quick. 😉 Arms and abs were the focus on day 39. Below is a quick link to the workout. I was with a friend at a different gym so I skipped the superset to shorten the workout and did partner abs since I had the opportunity. I can feel ab soreness for sure today and my legs are still sore from my prior workout.
Ha, I’m sore from the ribs down.  As much as I complain about muscle soreness, I love it. 🙂

I’ll be back Thursday for shoulders!

Oh and update –I’m up to three pull ups. Yay!!!!


Body Building – Shoulders/Cardio – Day 34

Day 34 (61)

front raise

First of all – Holy cow, my biceps and triceps are totally blown out from yesterday! Even two days later (as I write this post) they are tender. I definitely pushed myself to lift more and I am glad that I did! Today on the shoulder training I tried to do 20 lbs. on both exercises in the superset, but I just couldn’t press 20 lbs. after doing 10 x 20 lb. upright rows, I dropped to 15 on those.

Thank goodness today is legs because I can’t do any upper body training. My back is sore, my arms are sore, my delts are sore…Now to kill those legs!!

Keep pushing!

Barbell Military Press: 1 warm-up set with 30 lbs., 3 working sets of 10 reps with 45 lbs.

Upright Dumbbell Rows: 20 lbs. – 3 sets of 10 reps
Standing Dumbbell Military Press: 15 lbs. – 3 sets of 10 reps
End of Superset
