Tuesday was Citizen Police Academy. Tonight I'm suppose to golf with a good buddy and old training partner who is in from the Air Force due to a death in the family.

Shoulders still bugging me a bit but as I'm not taking anything to subside the small aches, I should expect a little discomfort. Another problem that I have had for some time and seems to be getting a little worse is when sleeping at night if I lay on my shoulders then that hand falls a sleep. Thankfully my body wakes me up and I have to change positions and work to get the blood back into it. Very annoying to say the least.

One thing with working out especially with this type of body building mentality is that cloths are starting to not fit. Last year in the summer I bought a wack of dress type shirts for work and now I'm finding the sleeves are getting shorter and everything is tighter. Oh well that has to be expected and I'm sure once I'm back to my regular training in TKD/BJJ that I will trim down again and things will fit.

Back at things on Thursday which is shoulders. Will see how they are feeling and if need be move on to the back exercises instead.

Wednesday, May 10, 2007 - Week 439, Day 1146

Barbell Seated Military Press = 155 lbs = 1x6, 1x7, 1x6
Barbell Upright Rows = 120 lbs = 2x7, 1x8
Dumbbell Seated Bent-Over Rear Deltoid Raises = 59 lbs per arm = 2x7, 1x9

Upped the weights 5 lbs each and still did as many reps if not more then last time. I'm making some good gains and can see it when I look in the mirror. However I feel I could lose some body fat as I am not eating as healthy as I could. Sweets are my vice and hopefully with getting back into TKD/BJJ shortly (I hope), the added cardio will serve me well in losing some fat plus get me in the right mind set. I believe I am right around 200 lbs now. I'm liking the body building regiment but will miss it once back to training.

Monday, May 14, 2007 - Week 440, Day 1147

Seated Rear Lat Pulldowns = 195 lbs = 2x8, 1x7
Barbell Bent-Over Rows = 215 lbs = 1x7, 1x8, 1x7
Closed Grip Lat Pulldowns = 175 lbs = 1x7, 1x6, 1x9
Dumbbell Trap Crunches = 59 lbs each = 3x10

With the exception of the 1st exercise, I upped everything by 5 lbs just like I did last workout. I will however drop the Trap Crunches down as I did not get the full feeling like I did previous times. Before starting the 3rd and last set I actually picked up some light weights to get the proper feel.

Wednesday, May 16, 2007 - Week 440, Day 1148

Standing Closed-Grip Barbell Tricep Curls = 145 lbs = 3x6
Lying Supine 2-Arm Dumbbell Tricep Curls = 49 lbs per arm = 3x8
Weighted Dips = 200 lbs = 3x8
Kick Backs = 49 lbs per arm = 2x6

Awesome day. First I had my 5 month appointment with Surgeon and I've got the go ahead to start TKD/BJJ again, though only lightly and no competitions or people kicking my leg. Then I get home and have an awesome workout.

Due to time constraints I had to push this workout and did it in 35 minutes including warm-up. I upped the first three exercises by 5 lbs each and it went great. The second exercise I thought perhaps I had taken on too much weight and why I was doing them so well but I slowed it down and still go the same results ... my triceps are getting stronger. On the last exercise for those that follow this, which probably is not many if any at all, you are probably wondering why only 49 lbs per arm when I was doing 89 lbs. Because of the time I planned on only 3 exercises and was going to skip these but after the Dips I was on fire so without taking a break I grabbed the 49 lbs that I had been doing for the second exercise and did 6 on each arm back to back and took no break and did a second set. This finished of the arms nicely.

Though it was good news that I can go back into training at a moderate level, knowing that I was making good gains on this routine with adding training will damper this and if continue with both I foresee over-training issues not to mention a loss of strength and size. Dang I wish I could have the best of both worlds. I should also mention the Surgeon said the leg was very strong and that after 6 months I can go as hard as I want ... yipeeeee.

Good to hear you're going back training and your leg is strong. Let the deadlifting commence!

Do you not miss training for the social aspect of it all? I like working out myself but it can get a bit annoying when you don't have a workout partner. At least your clothes are going to start fitting you a again.

Friday, May 18, 2007 - Week 440, Day 1149

Ez-Curl Barbell Preacher Curls = 125 lbs = 1x4
Ez-Curl Barbell Preacher Curls = 120 lbs = 1x7, 1x10
Seated Concentrated Dumbbell Curls = 69 lbs per arm = 1x5, 1x6, 1x5

Just did a small workout though I did it with intensity. I upped everything by 5 lbs as I have been doing with all of my other exercises. The Preacher Curls I only got 4 reps so dropped the 5 lbs and found that I was able to do more reps than I thought I could and will up it again next time. I think that I wasn't warmed up enough was the reason for so little reps.

Nothing much else to add and will workout again on Monday which is a holiday.

Monday, May 21, 2007 - Week 441, Day 1150

Barbell Deadlifts = 270 lbs = 1x8
Barbell Deadlifts = 275 lbs = 1x7
Barbell Deadlifts = 280 lbs = 1x6
Leg Curls = 100 lbs = 1x10
Leg Curls = 115 lbs = 1x8, 1x7
Barbell Rear Calve Raises = 200 lbs = 1x15
Barbell Rear Calve Raises = 250 lbs = 1x10, 1x11

My first leg workout day. It was sad to say the least and I really wasn't into it too much as it was a holiday Monday but I did it non the less as this week I will be gone the later part to Comox, BC for a sales meeting with my company and I know the workout facility at the hotel we are staying at isn't that great so I have to make sure I get in a few workouts before I go.

Deadlifts I've got it zeroed down to where I am at to keep in my 6-8 range however I found it difficult and will need to get back into it as it has been over 5 months since last doing. Leg Curls were sad to say the least. Calve Raises I will need to increase or make harder some how.

Just to let you know I am continuing to workout and making progress. I will be slowly starting back with BJJ/TKD and will be working with my Instructor's Instructor David Meyer on Sunday, June 3, 2007 where a group of us will be working specifically on chokes. You may not see me post for a while just giving myself a break. If anything major happens I will make a post. Take care everybody.

Just to drop a note that I'm back to training full time. The knee is holding out for now but still have some reservations in my mind that I will have to overcome.

On track for training for black belt though this is not a priority in my life. Took 3 weeks off from weight lifting to enjoy my holidays which I did thoroughly. Have been enjoying the great weather that is 28 to 36 degrees Celcius (83 to 97 degrees Fahrenheit) ... though my grasses isn't. Riding my motorcycle lots and has been about 2.5 weeks since I've driven my truck which is still sitting on 1/2 a tank from my trip to Regina over 2 weeks ago. Went knee boarding on Thursday and knee was no problem though it is still tight and tingly.

Monday started back with weight lifting and am doing a superset routine with Chest/Back and Wednesday will be Shoulders/Arms and Friday Legs/Abs. Tuesday and Thursday will be TKD with next week probably only 2 days weight lifting and 2 days TKD with 1 day BJJ.

As I've gotten older I've realized to maintain my size that I don't have to work out as often, though I must to maintain my strength so on Monday I was cursing and swearing when I had to drop everything by 20 lbs but I know I will get it back in time with conviction and hard work. I want to start enjoying life and all it has to offer and the balance is not only now between just working out and martial arts but also enjoying life. Weight lifting will always be a part of my life and will lift until I die. Martial arts I hope will also remain as a constant in my life. My life in general and spending time with my wife reacquainting ourselves as our daughter is now 14 and being more independent is a priority to ensure that our 21 years together goes on for another 21 years and more. Plus it is time to ensure that my daughter and I bond better so that she feels comfortable coming to me when she needs to.

Again I won't list my workouts but felt a sense inside to share further on this thread. Take it for what it is worth, I enjoyed sharing.
