day 2520 – farmer’s tan

fridays has all my weakest lifts simply because it’s all upper body. the usual consists of bench press, curls, skullcrushers and delt raise. bench press has been making headway in the recent weeks. i’m consistently using the green plates as my working set and hit the century mark with a spotter. i’m glad my workout partner pushed me to do weights i wouldn’t have otherwise tried. the last set of bench press was a killer drop set to finish off my arms. just as i’m about to curl, my friend joked around and i’m reminded of my horrible farmer’s tan

day 2510 – starbucks vibe

the starbucks addiction that i’ve managed to rip off is creeping back in. i really needed my caffeine fix this morning since my friend dropped by for an early lift. i wasn’t planning to do any exercise so my finger could have a break, but watching them made me want to do things too. i woke up far too sore in my lower back to do any more lower body work. i stuck with lighter upper body lifts like overhead press, skullcrushers and delt raises. still got a pretty decent workout in before i did some back end work

day 2286 – baby steps

stepped foot into the gym or any sports facility for the first time since the freak incident last monday. i may seem crazy to many, but as long as i can limp, i wanted to do this. i didn’t do any lower body exercises, and everything i did was done seated or off the foot. i also didn’t use any barbell or any weights that i’m used to. i do see and feel progress but it’s slower than i’d like. i limped in with no expectation and left happy because it felt so good just to be back in any kind of action

day 1894 – gym dates

keeping the gym going on through the thanksgiving long weekend. working mainly on my upper body push pull exercises. taken on a challenge with my friends to to get swole and make gains in the next ninety days. i’m pretty set on my goal to cut weight, improve body composition and make those abs more visible. this will be a big test of determination, but i can’t allow any limitations make me lose sight of any of my goals

day 1639 – bench some


img_20200203_1330321514602717010445712.jpglactic acid setting in but i’ll get cold showers after going ham second straight day. getting ready for the weekend away and bracing myself for the copious amount of food and liquor that’ll be served. it’s that kind of day to work on benching and rowing, something that my hand needs to readjust to. glad to see that i can still do pullups as i work back after such a long stretch

day 1514 Рperspiration 

my glutes are in extreme soreness and overall body is tired after a workout and coaching session. i forget how much i have to demonstrate when sifu is there. so sore i was in limbo to go workout or not. in the end i went because the blueberry muffin devoured earlier needed to be justified; won’t let myself eat without having exercised. in transition between my program; the increased urgency is the cause of more sweat

day 913 – off limits

i had to stay away from legs exercises all week long because of my shin issues, today was no exception. it hasn’t allowed me to walk or drive properly, let alone handle any lower body exercises – trust me, i was crazy enough to try. a couple days of inactivity and so called rest, and i’m sad to say my legs are still off limit. i still got to do what i got to do, so i guess today is yet another upper body day. i’m almost begging my shins to heal up so i can go about my business
