    Today I was exhausted so I did the following:
    Bent-over Barbell row
    Bench press
    Tricep pushdowns
    Leg extensions
    Leg curls
    Seated Calf presses
    Pull ups
    Then back home.

    1hr stair workout with trainer- lovely leg burner. So much pain.

    3km run with a friend - very easy pace for me but I was pushing her out of her comfort zone

    Tabata plus abs - absolutely brutal

    Easy Spin and yoga.

    Need a solid week of discipline before a brief but needed Thanksgiving break from calorie counting.

    Day 0022:

    Stretching - *Keep Same*
    11:30 - Basic Biking + Uppper

    Treadmill - *Keep changing it up*
    03:00 Minutes - 0.44 Miles
    Both calves threatened cramps today. Increasing salts, resuming supplements, etc. Doing calf specific stretches helped some, but I think leg day is just taking a toll on my running potential.

    Bench Press - *Maintain, full rep sets*
    01 x 10 + 5 Singles Reps - 150lbs (Miscounted as I loaded plates)
    01 x 10 + 5 Singles Reps - 135lbs
    01 x 10 + 5 Singles Reps - 135lbs
    These final 5 sets are just me able to do 10 without stopping, taking a 5-10 second break, then finishing the last 5 reps as I can in 1-2 rep sets until I hit 15 total. Usually takes half a minute or so. Not really a full set pause. Accidentally loading up 150lbs instead of 135lbs and doing 15 reps of that really kicked my butt. Sets 2 and 3 were so much lighter, but felt like I was starting much reduced from where I should have been. Still, progress is progress.

    Hanging Leg Raise - *Keep Same*
    03 x 15 Reps - Bodyweight - Felt good. Worked on breathing and pacing. Fatigued by final 5 reps of final set.
    Nothing of this changed from last Arms Day.

    Tricep Press - *Maintain 02-04 Weeks*
    03 x 15 Reps - 125lbs - This really felt like I was actually working hard to do these sets. The Tricep Press has been one of the easier exercises I've been doing. Going to 125lbs felt taxing in a good way.

    Bicep Curl - Fixed Bar Weight - *Maintain 02 Weeks*
    03 x 15 Reps - 45lbs - Exhausted. Barweight Curls really made me feel the workout. So much better than that awkward machine. Had to bring grip out wider to avoid a pain in wrist closer in. I'm a wide person, so narrow grips can be awkward anyway.

    Row Machine - *Maintain 02-04 Weeks*
    01 x 15 Reps - 100lbs
    01 x 10 + 05 Reps - 100lbs
    01 x 05 + 01(10) Single Rep Sets - 100lbs
    Final set I had to set, pause, reset, pull, etc. 100lbs on this machine is tough.

    Leverage Shoulder Press - *Maintain 02-04 Weeks*
    03 x 15 Reps - 60lbs - Felt a bit heavy. Might reduce to 50 or 55lbs. Was able to do moslty slow and steady 15 rep sets without issue, but I certainly felt it. Good, but taxing.

    Cable Row - *Maintain 02-04 Weeks*
    03 x 15 Reps - 115lbs
    Finally felt like I was struggling against something in these rows. 115lbs feels good. 104lbs Felt too easy. Going to continue this set/weight and keep on rowing.

    Abdominal Machine *Increase to 65lbs for 04 Weeks*
    03 x 15 Reps - 60lbs - Good and steady sets at proper weight.
    No funny tingling feeling risking a cramp during these sets today, which is nice. Not feeling as if I am going to cramp is Core progress in my book.
    Might increase on Monday.

    Closed Grip Shoulder Press - *Replace with Incline Bench Press @ 125lbs*
    03 x 15 Reps - 65lbs - This sucked. Flat out. Leverage machine must have worked the muscles the closed grip press usually worked.

    Cable Lat Pull Down - *Maintain Weight for 02-04 Weeks*
    03 x 15 Reps - 110lbs - Today was a harder day than normal for sure. I replaced the lat machine with the cable pull version. Felt better, more taxing, etc. Good core feel during exercise. Felt a bit weird in shoulders during.

    Assisted Pull Ups - *Continue to try and improve @ 200-220lbs Assisted*
    01 x 10 Reps - 220lbs - Proud of my form during these.

    Assisted Dips - *Continue to try and improve @ 200-220lbs Assisted*
    01 x 10 Reps - 220lbs - Feeling good being able to get this done. Arms felt dead by this point in workout.

    Tricep Rope Press - *Maintain and Improve*
    03 x 15 Reps - 44lbs - I am seeing a lot of progress by the tail end of my workout. I was able to do all but the last set without pausing. Final set I had to slow pull the last 5 reps. Progress, in a nutshell.

    Week Three's last Arms Day. Feeling strong, weak, exhausted, proud, pleased, etc.

    Leg Day tomorrow. Good luck to everyone else!

    Forgot to report 11/21: Spin class, mostly Z3, a little Z4.

    11/22: Rowing machine, 2 x 2K on, 2' break & CD before breakfast (which was at 1PM :lol: ); repeat same in late evening, for a total of 8,932m including the row in/out and CDs, easy intensity, around 2:37 average at 19-22spm, trying to hold HR < 140 (hit 143 on last piece, so minor fail). Pretty much just Z3.

    Musing: "Ugh" and "erg" sound so similar. Coincidence? ;)
