    Bench, barbell rows, lateral raises, OHP, incline bench, curls, pull ups

    Assessment: Waffle House for dinner last night before the Super Bowl, 20th anniversary luncheon for a coworker today, chicken for dinner

    Hey gang

    I like myself unconditionally!

    Happy Tuesday! 4 clients this morning and then 4 tonight! Less rain, but colder today.

    Cardio: jog/walk- 30 minutes (250 calories)

    Strength: chest- incline bench flyes, machine flyes, cable crossovers, dips. 4x12,10,8,6

    Assessment: Baked ziti and vegetables.
  • steveko89steveko89 Posts: 1,131Member Member Posts: 1,131Member Member
    Cardio: n/a

    Strength: Lower Body - Power
    Squats - 4 sets 315 x 5
    RDL - 4 sets 175 x 5
    Deadlifts - 4 sets 325 x 1

    Assessment:
    Was feeling pretty peppy so I tried to throw 395 on the bar for deadlifts instead of 325 for starters (1RM is 400, from 12/7/18) but I couldn't even really get it off the floor, which was a little disheartening. Ended up with Panera for lunch yesterday, which was good but a little calorie-intensive, I also snacked too much overall yesterday so my weight bounced up this morning too... also mildly disheartening after hitting below 176 on Sunday. Chicken and broccoli for dinner last night, likely again tonight. I do think I'm finally making some in-roads in getting my wife to start strength training. She's always enjoyed running more than just about any other physical pursuit. At 8 weeks postpartum she's been back down around pre-pregnancy weight for weeks but not necessarily pre-pregnancy shape. Trying to heft Jr. around, probably ~12lbs right now, is proving more taxing than I think she anticipated for her comical baseline strength level (imagine pre-serum Steve Rogers trying to do a push up), so there's that.

    Strength: back- pulldowns, bent over barbell rows, seated cable rows, dumbell pullovers. 4x12,10,8,6

    Dreary Wednesday here. Temps still up in the 60s before the bottom drops out again and it's back to low 30s over the weekend. Made it tough to get out of bed this morning with the steady rain hitting the roof and some rolling thunder. I really want to get in the habit of doing at least some warm-up/cool-down cardio or both as I think even 20 minutes will make a difference but I have a hard time getting up with enough time to get my lifts in and get to work on time as it is.

    Cardio: n/a

    Strength: Upper Body Power
    Bench - 4 sets, 230 x 3, 3, 3, 5
    Barbell Row - 4 sets, 180 x 5s
    OHP - 4 sets, 135 x 3, 3, 3, 5
    Lateral Raises - 3 sets, 30s x 5s
    EZ bar curls - 3 sets, 85 x 5s
    Weight Pull Ups - 3 sets, +70 x 3s

    Assessment: Chicken & penne w/ spinach for dinner last night but snacked too much again. Predictably, weight staying around that 176 & change mark. Chicken again tonight.

    So glad it's Friday, been a busy week and actually should get to relax some this weekend instead of the activity-filled nonsense last week. Was in a super-funk most of the day yesterday, got up on time but didn't work out, was just blah and grumpy. Ended up doing Waffle House again for dinner. Jr. had a good night getting to sleep and sleeping in general so I was able to get up a little earlier than I usually plan and make up for my big leg lifts from yesterday and get my planned workout in for today. Good start to Friday and a mental 180 from yesterday.

    Cardio: Nothing to write too much home about. I screwed around with my battle ropes as a warm up and between supersets. I still really don't know what to do with them.

    Strength: Abbreviated Lower Body Hypertrophy/Upper Body Hypertrophy
    Squats 3 x 205 x 8
    Deadlifts 3 x 205 x 5
    DB Incline Bench 3 x 40s x 10
    Flat Bench 4 x 175 x 12
    Barbell Row 4 x 140 x 8
    Lateral Raise 3 x 25s x 12
    EZ Bar Curls 3 x 65 x 8
    OHP 3 x 95 x 8
    Pull ups 3 x BW x 8

    Assessment: Like I said good morning so far. Having lunch with a colleague and unclear on dinner plan but it's uncharacteristically not bothering me too much to not have everything planned out for the day. Will be a busy day at the office trying to get some stuff done that needs to go out this week. A little confused about my TDEE spreadsheet; since restarting my sheet at the beginning of the year it's been saying my maintenance level is 300 calories lower than my average intake despite the scale dropping (albeit slowly) over the last three weeks.

    Hey gang,

    I like myself unconditionally!

    Hey gang,

    I like myself unconditionally!

    Happy Monday! 4 clients this morning and then 5 this evening! More rain and DW is gonna be out of town all week, so just have to cook for me and my DD.

    Cardio: run/jog- 30 minutes (250 calories)

    Strength: shoulders- front shoulder raise, face pulls, side laterals, shrugs. 4x12,10,8,6

    Assessment: Poke bowl last night.

  • steveko89steveko89 Posts: 1,131Member Member Posts: 1,131Member Member
    Boy is it a Monday.

    Cardio: What's this? A "cardio" entry? 500m rowing machine + spin bike til I was bored + battle ropes warm-up to get things moving this morning. Little brisk in the basement.

    Strength:
    Flat Bench [email protected]
    Barbell Row [email protected]
    DB Lateral Raises 4x12x15lbs
    Incline Bench [email protected]
    Barbell Press [email protected]
    EZ bar curls [email protected]
    Ab work 4xAMRAP

    Assessment: Hope everyone had a good weekend. Was nice and low-key which will be our last for at least the next two with crap we have scheduled. Did some tweaking to my routine after re-reading some stuff on MAV and optimal sets for growth. Seemingly getting better about dragging my rear out of bed on time, however didn't start my workout on time so I'll have to finish up my last superset tonight when I get home or when I set everything up for tomorrow morning. At 9 weeks postpartum I've been giving my wife space to come to her own conclusions about what she needs to do to get closer to her pre-pregnancy state; she was somewhat bemoaning that she doesn't think she's lost any more weight after the initial drop (albeit pretty close to her pre-pregnancy weight) and her shape being different. I don't think she'll get to a point where she's logging as meticulously as I do but I'm seeing the signs pointing her in that direction; same with doing some actual strength training. My weekly weight for last week actually put my linear regression for the year at a negative slope (a whopping -0.0098) which is nice.
