R9D21/2 – X2 Core And Plyocide

Tags: , , ,

I have to admit to feeling lazy this past week. I feel like I have eaten too many nuts and it’s making me lethargic. If I was still addicted to the scale I am sure that I would find a couple of pounds extra. However, in the spirit of the New Year I am going […]

Day 43 – Stop! This Ride Is Over.

Tags: , , ,

Injuries are a fact of life. Some people have bum shoulders, sore knees or dickie elbows but me, I have the Holy Grail of injuries, a back injury. I have mentioned it many times before, sometimes at length other times as a reason to whine about my progress or make excuses for not doing a […]

Round 2, Phase 2, Week 1 – Back Tweak = Back Day!!

Tags: , , ,

I am sporadic in my updating only due to the fact that I am sporadic in my work. I tweaked something in my back the other day and being cautious doesn’t really jive with what I am trying to achieve. However, I have found if I am careful and warm up properly that I can […]

Day 85 – Core Syn

Tags: , , ,

I have been looking forward to Core Syn this time around, if only due to the fact that skipping days due to coaching makes me feel like I am dogging it a little bit. So a good hard workout is exactly what I required to get me back in the swing. Core Syn, as usual, […]

Day 82 – Redemption (I am so lost sometimes)

Tags: , , , ,

So my last entry lamenting the fact that I missed my last weights day was a little premature. Fact is that I have one day left. The day 81 workout was the Kenpo that I switched with Yoga leaving me with Legs and Back today and then Yoga on Friday (or not, as noted). So […]

Day 31 – Building a better bar

Tags: , ,

Back and Biceps –¬†Yes, they are real. Greg Valentino – The man whose arms exploded. Bear in mind he is 5’2″. The other day I found a pretty strong hollow metal bar at Home Depot for under $20. Today before my workout I drilled holes in my basement door frame and slid the bar in. […]

Day 29 – Phase 2. Bring the Pain!

Tags: , , , , ,

So here I go, all soft and fuzzy after my week of rest only to be thrown to the lions. I still have to install my chinup bar in the basement but since today is Chest, Shoulders and Triceps hopefully I won’t need it yet. However, I should put it up before I am too […]

Day 22 – Rest week is here, yay!

Tags: , ,

Yoga Sounds bizarre that rest week would start with the longest and most challenging workout of all but rest simply means no weights. Today is Yoga X and I am hoping for an improvement in my performance after such a hard week last week. The downside to skipping the rest / stretch day is that […]

Day 12 – Injury prone?

Tags: , , ,

Legs and Back. Injuries are a fact of life in any athletic endeavour. I very rarely go to the gym without feeling some kind of pain somewhere. There is always something I am having to work around or be careful with and maybe only a few weeks in each year where I can really go […]

Day 11 – Maybe!?

Tags: , , ,

Well, I woke up just as sick as I went to bed. I thought that maybe if I walked around a while I would feel better but after having staggered to the bathroom I figured I had better get back to the heating pad before I hurt myself. My back is a fickle thing, you […]
