After taking a couple of days off from the gym I was excited and ready to get back in there today.  Ron and I had a great chest workout this morning.  Over the weekend I got the new Reebox Reeflex running shoes and tried them out for the first time today after chest.  They are awesome shoes.  Later on this afternoon I'm heading back up there for some heavy bag work along with abs and some jump rope.

Back/Forearm/Calve/Heavy Bag/Cardio

Yesterday I was able to run for my cardio.  I have not been able to run or train legs in over a month now.  It's shocking to me how quick you start to regress when you are not able to do something.  I ran for 20 minutes on level 6.5 then walked for 5 minutes then finished off with 5 minutes on 7.0.  I'm definitely looking forward to getting my heart and lungs back into the condition they were in before this injury came about and outdoor runs.  Today had a great back workout and afterward I hit the heavy bag for the first time in a long time.  This weekend I'll be filming a descriptive video on a few new exercises I've been doing.

It feels good to feel good!  Finally feeling like myself again since I've been taking allergy medicine.  Had one of my best chest workouts in I don't even know how long.  For the past weeks I've been lethargic, weak, and non motivated because my workouts have been suffering.  Today Ron and I trained chest, calves and abs.  It was the first time I've used chains on the bar and it felt great.  I'm doing some cardio later on this afternoon in between clients.

After taking 4 full days off from the gym to give my body a much needed break I was excited to get back in there today and hit chest.  The only exercise that I've done the past 4 days has been a few dog walks.  My right knee is still bothering me so I was not able to do part 3 of my suggested 3 day split routine video.  Depending on how it feels this weekend will determine if I will film.  I got a very full pump today but I can tell that I'm out of shape cardio wise since I havn't been hitting it like I used to. Today I tried a new technique that I've never used before on a couple of my exercises.  It's time under tension.  It's a shorter rep range with no lock out which keeps the muscle under constant tension through the whole set.  It's definitely a different feeling but I'm going to start incorporating it into my daily workouts.

  1. Incline Barbell Press - 4x12-4
  2. Incline DB Press - 3x10-12
  3. Flat Barbell press - 3x8-12
  4. Flat Machine Press - 3x15-20
  5. Pec Dec - 3x15
  6. DB Kickbacks - 3x12
  7. Cable pressdowns - 3x12
  8. Skullcrushers superset close grip press - 2x12-20
  9. Stair Climber - 30 minutes
