    Hey gang,

    I like myself unconditionally!

    Happy TGIF and LCW! Finally have a day with only one client and some time to myself! Plan to do a good workout and get into me today. Probably will box today too.

    Cardio:walk/jog- 3 miles (500 calories)

    Strength:biceps and triceps- preacher curls, alternate curls, rope pressdowns, lying tricep extensions. 12,10,8,6

    Assessment: My eating has sucked all week. That's why weight has been at a standstill.

    Niner: sounds like a BUSY Spring!

    Sunday: Softball practice for an hour. Gads, I was uncoordinated today. There's a reason I'm in right field. :sad: :laugh: At least my hitting was decent.

    Food: on target.

    Hey...miss you both! Been too busy working, and now finishing packing for the Michigan boarding trip. Don't think I'm taking my computer, as it's only an overnight, so I won't be able to log on MFP. I don't think I'll even come close to reaching my the cals I'll burn on the slopes, so I'm not going to worry about it. I also tend to be less hungry the heavier I exercise....and I've packed water and zero-calorie gatorade drinks so that will help to refuel my body. Anywho....hope this body of mine holds up....Still have some pain in my hamstring, of course, but at least it's slowly diminishing. It's only been three weeks since I injured it, and most of the bruising is gone. I also have one last hurrah on Saturday the 10th and my season will be done. Then I'll rest and heal a little, and then back into training for my 5k!

    Food was SO on today....ended up with 600 some calories to spare...What I like to call a "hollow" day because MFP yells at me for not eating enough haha. Oh well, if I'm not hungry, why push it right?

    Cheerio.

    Probably better than me. I'd be on the bench.

    Hey gang,

    I like myself unconditionally!

    Happy Monday! Last week of TKO for this session. Class tonight and a client. It's also the start of my "cut" phase to ease into summer. So starting today my focus starts on being much more consistent and concentrate more on my workouts.

    Cardio:walk/jog 3 mi (400 calories)

    Strength:quads- squats, leg press, leg extensions. 12,10,8,6 increasing weight each set.

    Assessment: I pretty much just blew the weekend probably because I knew my cut phase starts today.

    I didn't know this thread existed until now - what a great idea! Mind if I join in?


    Saturday - 60 minutes of kickboxing at LA Boxing, I assume ~500 calories.


    Sunday - Legs, Shoulders & Arms, lol:

    10 minutes of rowing for cardio warmup

    Power cleans: 15x45# bar, 7x75, 5x95

    Barbell Squats: 10x95, 5x135, 5x165, then two sets of 5x185 (my personal best; not really heavy but I have back and knee issues) followed by 20 quick bodyweight squats

    Overhead Barbell Press: 15x45, 5x75, 5x95, two sets of 7x105

    Straight-leg dumbbell deadlifts, 1 set with a pair of 45s.

    Upright rows, 1 set of 12 with a 65lb bar

    Two supersets of bicep curls and lying tricep extensions (skullcrushers) w/ EZ curl bar, first sets 10x65, second sets 8x65

    Two supersets of bicep curls and tricep kickbacks with dumbbells, 8x35 for the curls, 8x25 for the kickbacks

    Seated calf raises with 45lb dumbbells on the knees; 2 sets.

    That was a little over an hour with the warmup and 5 mins of cooldown.


    Today - 45 minutes of s t r e t c h i n g ... I am sore and need it!


    My eating is generally good when I track it; my MFP target is ~1800 cals, but on workout days I'll eat (or drink) back several hundred. Target macros are 40 carb, 30 protein, 30 fat. Last night I had a Sam Adams IPA (185 empty calories.)

  • I would love to join this thread...turns out it is my rest day today so nothing really to post, however I could use this type of accountability. It looks like this started in early November, however I promise to follow the same format. I was part of a 12 week thread like this last year and it really helped me focus.....Thanks Kristara

    Thanks for the welcome!

    This morning was modified P90X Chest & Back, which you probably know is mostly push-ups and pull-ups.

    I do the standard and military style push-ups, and then for the next three push-up sets I do bench press instead

    In the first round, I did three sets of flat bench, 6 reps at 205# (targeting a range of 5 to 8, but 6 got me dangerously close to failure today. My weight rack has safety bars, but I prefer not to test them .... ;) )

    In the second round, I dropped down to 155# for incline bench, and did 9, 8, and 7 reps.

    I used an Iron Woody pull-up assist band (medium green) for all of the pull-up sets today. Reps ranged from 10 to 15.

    The bent-over rows and 1-arm rows (lawnmowers) were both 12 reps with 45# dumbbells.

    A good day to you all!

    Nice. Add some dumbelll pull overs to stretch and finish back. You don't need a lot of weight, just enough to so you feel it in the back.

    Hey, welcome to the new posters! Glad to see you!! Here's the report from my Michigan two-day snowboarding trip:

    I AM SO STOKED! Two perfect days of stoked snowboarding. I made TONS of progression. The mountain was amazing...I went from barely completing a green dot course on a 300 vert feet to regularly perfect runs on a 485 vert feet....I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but to a beginner that's huge. I even took my first jib on a box...and did a perfect boardslide TWICE. I originally convinced myself that I would need a lesson to really even attempt it, but I didn't want to go home not even trying. I just made up my mind to do it, since jibbing and hitting rails and boxes and jumps is ultimately what I want to do with my snowboarding....so to have a perfect season cap like that made ALL of this so worth it. I shredded SO hard for two days straight. I put so much work into it, but got that much more progression our of my riding. I wanted it bad, and I accomplished what I set out to do.

    I am SO stoked about that. Perfect way to end my season. Time to finally rest, recover, heal and get ready for my June 5K...Back in the gym when the swelling goes down in my hip......
