Substituted cardio for yesterday’s back/biceps workout; mulch project.

Yesterday was supposed to be my back and biceps workout, but I decided to skip it. I felt like I had to. The reason I decided to skip the workout is because after my back and biceps workout my forearms always cramp up for a day or so with practically zero exertion. Sometimes just turning my pillow over the night of my workout causes my forearms to lock up! Normally I can deal with the… [Read more]

Good weather for tomorrow’s cardio (mulch project); Yesterday’s HIIT workout.

It looks like I managed to pick an absolutely perfect day for our annual spring mulch project! There’s a rainy front blowing through today, and tomorrow (the day of the project) we’ll enjoy crystal-clear skies and a high of just 79 degrees. We’ve only got six yards of mulch to spread this year – practically nothing compared to years past. I remember one year we had to spread 20 yards of mulch. It took me… [Read more]

Great workout, not such a great progress pic; BodyShop tip of the day.

Yesterday’s workout (pecs/triceps/delts) continued my 3 week streak of excellent training sessions. I increased weight and/or reps on every single exercise, my energy levels were high and my intensity was very good. The week off from training that I took almost three weeks ago turned out to be a very wise decision. Ever since that break my workouts have been awesome, I’ve had very few cravings for junk food and motivation has been off the… [Read more]

Sunday progress report; Really put to the test at last night’s party.

Week #13 of my 2010 cut is in the books! As I always do on Sunday, I’ve taken a complete set of measurements, a body fat reading and my scale weight in order to evaluate my progress. My scale weight this morning is 186.2 pounds. That’s a 2.4 pound drop over the past week, and a little on the high side – especially this late into my cut. I’ve now lost a total of 20.2… [Read more]

Deadlifts; New progress photo; Dealing with social situations while cutting.

Yesterday I was in a fantastic mood all day long, and a big part of the reason for my mood was because the muscle I pulled in my back a few weeks ago was feeling well enough to deadlift again. My workout (back/biceps/traps) was on my mind all day long, and I when I was finally able to get in to the gym I tore into my training like a starving man would attack a… [Read more]

In a great mood; Squats and deadlifts; Cardio conditioning; AtLarge RESULTS!

It’s Friday, I’m down to a 2010 cutting low of 186.4 pounds, the weather is absolutely perfect, my injured back is finally 100% recovered and today is back and biceps day! Hitting the lotto would be about the only thing that could put me in a better mood. For the past couple of weeks I’ve been doing leg presses and rack pulls as weaksauce substitutions for squats and deads. Now that my back is no… [Read more]

Smashed my finger yesterday; New progress photos; April 2010 TSM: malnar.

Ah, another typically insane 1st day of the month! I’ve got a very full plate this morning, so I need to get right to it… Yesterday afternoon I was absolutely killing it in the gym (chest/triceps/delts workout), when I made a really stupid mistake. I was doing flat barbell bench press/DB flyes supersets: after doing 10-12 reps on the barbell bench press, I’d immediately grab a pair of dumbbells and continue to roast my pecs… [Read more]
