2012 – Workout #19

Basketball with Jake, Jordon, Bolin and Kuk!   I had a great time we won a lot of games but really competition wasn’t there, most everyone was a younger crowd.  It took us a few minutes to get the court but it went OK.  I got some good cardio in that is probably gonna make me sore…..

2012 – Workout #17

Tonight was a good long(er) workout, 60 minutes on the elipitcal.

And a buncha pushups!

It was a really good workout, I worked pretty hard!


2012 – Workout #14

Lifting my legs, doing a lot of pushups and some planking was the plan.  Push ups i’ve been doing lately are really, and tonight would be no different.

Leg Press 12 reps @ 180lbs

Push ups 20

Leg Press 12 reps @ 180lbs

Push ups 20

Leg Press 12 reps @ 180lbs

Push ups 20 Hands closer to my sides

Calf presses 16 reps @ 180lbs (Used the sled for this as well)

Plank for 60 seconds (this was hard)

Calf presses 16 reps @ 180lbs

Side plank each side 30 seconds (this was even harder)

Leg Press 12 reps @ 270lbs

Push ups 20

Hamstring curl machine 12 reps @ 110lbs

Leg Extension machine 12 reps @ 140lbs

Push ups 20

Hamstring curl machine 12 reps @ 110lbs

Leg Extension machine 12 reps @ 140lbs

Push ups 20


Now this workout was a little rough for a couple of reasons, my hamstrings seemed to be really tight, and almost felt pulled after the first set of curl and my shoulder has been bugging me a bit.  Well tonight it was bugging me a lot, it really felt as if it was injured, i’m assuming its a bit of consequence due to the bench press from Friday, good or bad I pushed through.  The planks were really hard on it for some reason.  It did feel good to lift legs again, I really needed to do squats but I went at a busy time at the gym and there were rubes everywhere.

Wow what a workout today!

Ran basket ball games with Jake and Nick at lifetime!  Man what a workout!  I did pretty good, but I would have loved to have done better.  But I husseled and did a really good job keeping running.  That and I carried us.

Elliptical machine for 8 minutes , OK pace.

Pushed out 32 pushups, I couldn’t do any more.

As far as how I feel about it?  Well It was hard, I used a lot of weight assistance to get through the sets.  BUT I did want to stop after the first round and I really pushed myself to get through them, so I do feel good about that.  Doing the 8 minutes of cardio after, I would normally skip and I didn’t so I feel good about that.  Doing 3 pullups on my own (bicep) that was great too.  Doing some dips w/o weight that was good.  But overall I want to to this workout better.
