I had a great workout yesterday (pecs/delts/tris). I think my pecs and delts – two of my weakest areas – are finally starting to show some real progress. I didn’t mention it on Friday, but I also had my best leg workout ever on Thursday. Today my quads, hams and calves are all still really sore from Thursday’s workout.

Yesterday I was thinking back to when I first started my weight training program. I remember for my first leg workout I did squats, then I did leg lifts, then leg curls, then lunges and then I worked my calves. Well, at least I tried to do lunges – by the time I did squats, leg lifts and leg curls, I could barely stand up. I remember I could not do a single lunge, even without weight. I went down and my legs just collapsed! This past Thursday I achieved personal bests in both weight and reps for squats, leg lifts and leg curls, and then I did a few dozen lunges with 100 pounds (two 50-pound dumbbells). My point is, it doesn’t matter where you start – if you work hard and stay dedicated and stay consistent in your efforts you will see BIG improvements. Six months from now I’ll probably look back at last Thursday’s workout log and chuckle.

Today I’m doing 200 crunches, 23 minutes of HIIT on the stair climber and then I’ll be doing a few hours of yard work. Later today I should have time to get to some of the email that’s been piling up over the last 48 hours, and then maybe I’ll watch a DVD. Hope you have a great day, see you tomorrow.
