Abs finally recovered… or are they?

My abs seem to have finally recovered from Friday’s ab workout, so today I’m doing going to hit them hard once again with some decline weighted crunches, decline reverse crunches, lying leg lifts and hanging leg raises. After that, I’ll be doing 23 minutes of HIIT on the stair climber. I’ve got a crazy day ahead, so I’m going to make this short and go get started. 10:30 AM Update: Amazing, my abs are still… [Read more]

Abs are still sore; First MAX-OT workout.

I can’t believe that my abs are still sore from last Friday’s workout. That’s 4 days and counting to recover. I’m definitely sticking to that ab workout for a while! This morning I’ll be doing my first workout using MAX-OT training technique, and also my first back & bicep workout on the new home gym strength training equipment. I’m really looking forward to this session, it should be very interesting. I’m going to get started… [Read more]

Starting a new weight training program; Creatine progress report; Abs still sore.

I’ve decided to change up my weight training method, and I will no longer be doing pyramid sets. A lot of natural body builders (and regular people just like me) have made tremendous gains using something called “MAX-OT”. I’ve been reading a lot about MAX-OT (Maximum Overload Training) and studying the program in detail for awhile now. It really makes a lot of sense to me, so I’m going to give it a go. For… [Read more]

Day of rest; Soreness; New ab workout.

It feels so weird sitting here knowing that I’m not working out today. I want to do some cardio, but I know I must cut back on it while I bulk. Besides, my muscles need a rest! My legs are still sore from Thursday’s brutal workout, and my abs are so sore from Friday’s ab workout that I literally can’t flex my abs without wincing. In the past my abs have always recovered in 1… [Read more]

First day of my four-month bulking phase; Site updates.

Ok, time to bulk. The next four months will consist of lots of hard lifting and healthy foods. I love to eat and I love to lift, so I’m looking forward to this phase a lot. The only downside is I’m going to lose my abs for a while, but they’ll be back soon enough, better than ever. 🙂 I’m not going to stop doing cardio altogether, but I will start taking Sundays off. My… [Read more]

Updated home gym pics; Last day of my summer maintenance program!

I took all new pictures yesterday afternoon of the new home gym. The lighting was much better this time and, compared to the first batch, the shots are better composed. I also re-designed the page so that the images are smaller (with the option to enlarge on a per-picture basis), and added captions. I also added some pictures of me working out. You can check it out right here. Today is the last day of… [Read more]

New power rack and bench are here; Home gym pics.

As I mentioned yesterday in my late update, Old Dominion dropped the ball yet again. They promised that my shipment would be delivered yesterday, but yesterday afternoon when I called to find out why it was not here yet, they said that it would not be delivered until Thursday (…pfft, yeah right). The guy told me that I could come pick it up if I wanted, so I did. The packaging was an absolute mess…. [Read more]

New gym equipment to finally arrive today?@!

If the information given to me by Old Dominion is correct, my power rack and bench will finally be delivered sometime later today. Given their track record with my shipment thus far, I’m not holding my breath (if you aren’t familiar with the circuitous journey to which my gym equipment has been unwittingly subjected, you can read all about it in my August 29, 2003 Daily News update). If by some miracle the equipment is… [Read more]

Busy day ahead – short update.

I’ve got a lot of work to do today, so I’m going to make this a short update and get right to my workout. Today is a weight training day and I’ll be working my back and biceps. Have a good day, see you tomorrow…

Today’s workout; New gym equipment update.

Since today is a holiday (in the USA) I’ll be skipping my workout. Holidays are the perfect excuse to loaf. I’m kidding, of course. 😉 I haven’t missed a workout in 239 days, and I’m sure not going to start now! As a matter of fact, since today is a holiday and my Nextel 2-way radio/cell phone is off (yeah!), I’m going to take advantage of the extra time and replace my normal 23-minute HIIT… [Read more]
