Your Workout Today

Recommended Posts

Back to it after taking off lifting due to the tennis elbow.  And, of course, I forgot my elbow brace.

25 minutes on the elliptical - set pretty high

a few rounds of upper body (one round is five sets - chest, back, shoulders, bi's, tri's)

then elbow therapy

then stretching

kept it simple and monitored the elbow healing - hopefully not overdoing it

I REALLY want to return to full workouts (and climbing and kayaking and hitting that annoying golf ball)

Tennis elbow is a biatch!

Back at it today...started with slow, strict form, wide grip pullups, 4 sets. No neck issues, so I finished heavy with my normal workout. Neck and shoulder feel good.

I'm sure it'll flare up occasionally, but it doesn't seem to affect my strength, and lifting doesn't seem to affect it...so woohoo!

Nice. I've been trying to hit the portable stationary bike 3 times a week or so. I hate cardio so much lol

I agree on that. I rather do circuit training with light weights or body weight only exercises than do cardio. Usually my cardio is a lot of HIIT like sprinting.

I won't be able to sprint for at least another few weeks. Baby steps.

Chest yesterday. Normally pair shoulders in, but took it easy with the nerve and all.

I'll see how it is on Friday, and I'll just hit shoulders then if all is well.

Weighed in at 166.4 this morning, down over 10 lbs since I started in October. Final push until the first of the year, then I get to clean bulk...the fun part!

Was hoping to get into the 150s, but it's unlikely that I can drop that low without losing muscle. So I'm thinking I'll probably get down to 161 or so, which'll put me around 12% bodyfat. Then I'll try to put on 1.5-2 lbs of muscle a month for 3-4 months, and then cut back down for my wedding on June 13th.

So I started my workout today and then we had a fire drill at work.  I am in shorts and a workout shirt and wet with sweat.  It is 35 degrees out and drizzling.  I had a towel to put over my head.  I got lots of laughs then luckily the nurse at work had a blanket handy.  I looked like a disaster victim.

That is my bane right now.

Ha, yeah that's the toughest part. As long as I have a gym, I have no problems lifting. But diet is always the toughest. It's the reason you see people in the gym every day for 2 years and they make no progress and wonder why...
