Anvil or Hammer

Iron and Chrome

Last week I didn’t get to the gym real often. This week should go a bit better.

Friday at Dumbarton, I stuck to my general theme:

16 mins Eliptical
Dumbell Press 55lb Dumbbell X 12
Lat Pulldown 120lbs X 8
Circuit X 5

16 min Eliptical
Overhand dumbbell curl 20lbs X 8
Seated dips BW X 8
Circuit X 5
that was a lame circuit, overhand curls don’t work with a dumbell and seated dips are lame

16 min Eliptical
Rolling Thunder up to 75
I wanted to go further but a heavy one handed deadlift seems like a bad idea right now so I passed
Lots of block work, half of a 70 and 80. That was fun.

Aside from the fact that it’s a sort of a lame program that I have on Fridays right now, this was probably one of the more fun workouts in a while. Someone else brought the rolling thunder for me to see. Several of us were playing on the blocks and the rolling thunder. It was a really a good time for us all.

Sunday – Chrome and fern
30mins on the cardio setting on a recumbent bike. I even wiped up after my sweaty self. Although there were small puddles on either side, where the sweat had run off my arms :). Then I went and did their machine circuit. It was kinda lame. I don’t think I’ll do that again. Also, I think I may start doing bodyweight lunges.

The disc is doing well, I’m still doing traction and it seems to help. I’m still on 6 tabs a day but I’ve taken a few doses late because I didn’t notice that the last dose was ending. I don’t yet know what I’m gonna drop to 4. I’m sitting well and stuff like that. In general, I’m doing well, I’m just in a waiting period.

Monday Morning Weigh-in:234.4

I actually did weigh myself yesterday, although I didn’t want to. I feel like I’m in a losing battle right now. That said, the 2/10 pound loss was actually a bit motivating. As my wife and I discussed, as long as I work to clean up my eating,  I seem to do ok. Last week was more clean than the previous and this new week is looking to be more clean than last week :).
