What Was Your Work Out Today?

    3rd day or rain in Tucson so the deck rowing was out! I can't handle wet and in the 40's any longer. I think my body has already gotten used to Sunny 70s! Tomorrow is supposed to be normal nice again.

    Did 20 minutes W/U on the AD Pro, then 20 around as hard as I could sustain (not quite but close) -- 254 Watt Average. HR got up to over 90% Max so it was hard enough.

    Ended with 15 minute C/D on bike.

    Tomorrow have a doc appointment so if I'm out of commission for a week, that's why. Minor medical issue but needs attention. Infected sweat gland, which doesn't go with my penchant to get really sweaty -- not at all! Likely have to eventually have it dug out of my arm. Hopefully not tomorrow, but right now it's like a golf ball under the arm and very painful (and I have a pretty high pain tolerance). Depending on how it goes, I'll either be back at it on Sunday or take next week off.

    For the rowers out there -- one of our oldest members in my Indoor rowing club (a lady over 80 years old) just posted up an hour row in the World rankings today - 2nd for the year for an hour row -- 10060m or so. She's only one of two that has done it that is a female over 80 years old. She's prepping for the BIRC soon (the British Indoor Rowing Championships). That's badass.

    On Thursday I do a 45 min full body workout with dumbbells at a little studio 15 min from my house. Its not crazy strenuous but it starts at 6:00am so I can get back home in time to get everybody off to school. I'm tying to work on being consistent and I almost never miss a Thursday!

    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

    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!

    Team erg practice 4x12'/2' rest trying to stay between 65-75% of my max HR.

    45 min spin with 3x9 min intervals with zone 3 (80% FTP) and zone 4 (100% of FTP). Felt great although last interval harder.
