The joys of attempts at rejuvination.




Hill work is a b1tch, but she is sooo pretty you got to keep going there

If your achiles are suffering, next time, instead of running that hill, lunge walk it. You will get some funny looks (like you care), but by putting more emphasis on driving of the leading quad/glute, and by lowering the impact, you will still get that 'hill burn out' but without such direct stress on your calves/achiles.

Be safe- rejuvination will be set back badly by achiles tendonitis.

Okay, where did I leave off?

Friday, August 18, 2006

Meant to workout but as soon as I got home it was yard work. By the time I finished everything as I had been putting it off with all of this deck work and renovations, I finished at 8:30. I then had something to eat and realized I was too tired to workout.


Saturday, August, 19, 2006

Got up early so that I could clean the garage and take tools back to friend's house. Then got home and loaded my truck with all of the scrap and garbage, grass clippings and what not to take to the dump. My daughter (13) and her friend helped out in hopes I would take them to Tim Horton's for an ice capachino and donut. Then I took a tea to my wife at work but downtown Fort Saskatchewan was nuts as Ray Whitney and Mike Commodore had come home to show off the Stanley Cup. Went home and then went out to shop for a new BBQ for the deck. That night I got to unwind and went to a friends house for a couple of drinks (5) and came home by 1:30 as he had to get up at 4:30 to go to work. I stayed up till just before 5:00 and then went to bed.


Sunday, August 20, 2006

Got up at 8:00 and layed in bed until wife was done in the bathroom and then got up. Didn't move too fast as I think that even though I had 5 drinks I wasn't a 100%. By 11:00 I was and a buddy came over and we went to pick up my BBQ; a stainless steel unit that put me back $470. Then we hopped on our bikes and went for a cruise. I road his bike and he road mine and now I have a hankering to upgrade to a super sport with 1000 cc as my 750 does not have the nuts that his does. Then I came home and assemblied the BBQ and we had our first BBQ steaks in a long time (about 2 months). I usually cook all year round so now we can get back into the swing of things. Then I spend the night preparing the floor for the laminate the next day and screwed all of the squeaks in the floor that I could.


Monday, August 21, 2006 - Week 410, Day 1084

Came home early as the laminate is in and I had to put on the baseboards. Looks awesome but there are a few things that they have to do tomorrow to finish things off. I had little to eat as I wanted to get this done before my work out. I had one BBQ turkey smokey so about 45 minutes before I worked out I had a protein shake.

Seated Rear Lat Pulldowns = 185 lbs = 6/6/7/6/6
Barbell Bent-Over Rows = 210 lbs = 5/5/5/5/5
Seated Alternate Bicep Curls = 64 lbs (per arm) = 6/6/6/5/8

I upped the Lat Pulldowns by 2 lbs and was able to still do okay. I upped the Bent-Over Rows by 5 lbs and was still able to get my 5's but I did not have any juice if I had to do any more reps. I will have to rethink this and maybe drop the weight again. The bicep curls I increased the reps again. When doing this lift I felt I could do more but only thought I could do 1 more rep so stayed at the 6 reps. On the 4th one the weight plate got loose so I stopped and tightened it losing my momentum and was only able to finish 5 with my right though I knew my left could do more but wanted to keep them at the same reps. On the 5th and final I pushed myself to see what I actually could do and low and behold, 8 reps. This is getting good and I hope to be doing 70's per arm by December or earlier for the 5 reps.

Time was about an hour so opted not to continue with the Shoulder Shrugs so will incorporate them on my leg day instead.

Just as a note, about an hour to working out I took a measurement of my arms, as I had on the weekend and prior last week. At rest my right is now 16.75" and my left is 16.25". I have seen a 1/4" increase and I have been getting stronger. Last time I worked out, 2 days later I was feeling extremely pumped even though I hadn't worked out so I measured them and the right was 17" and the left 16.5". This is what I'm striving for though I hate the 1/2" difference, plus I still have hopes to getting back to where I was years ago in the 18" range. I'm not going to hold my breath but who knows.

All and all a good night for working out and finished with a shake.

Im going to have to do that later today.
The Achilles is som ewhat swollen and I dont want to stop doing the hill running. Seems to be bringing about good endurance benefits.

Thanks. I was looking back at some old records prior to joining martial arts 4 years ago. I had been doing 10 of the 64 lbs per arm and then jumped up to 74 lbs for 4-5 reps. I'm not there yet but it made me feel much better to know I'm catching up on somethings. Chest and shoulder however are dispicably low in comparision to what they were. Getting older, injuries, martial arts, etc. have all taken their toll over the years. I'm in good spirits though and happy just to train so will still shoot for the moon. Thanks again.

OH.MY.GOD.

Can someone pleeease tell me how, no matter how many sprints, farmers lunges, plyo jumps, tire flips, car pushes etc. that a boy does, he only has to do a heavy 4 set pyramid on leg press to leave him walking like John Wayne, and sitting slower than a man with piles the size of melons? (this is rhetorical BTW, i was fully expecting horrific DOMS).

tuesday
Did a moderate 2.7 mile recovery bike ride to clear some lactic build up, and then some deep developmental stretching

DOMS or not, I've got another hot date with the leg press tomorrow, and i dont want to dissapoint her with 'performance problems'

Yes welcome. Any friend of Cord's (Dave) is a friend of mine. Now maybe you can give us more incite about the man in question.
