Great job. I've recently started hitting the dreadmill myself. It's definitely a love/hate relationship.

Settling in for the night and just realized I didn't mention the 25 minutes of additional treadmill time I logged in this morning.  Not going crazy on the intensity,  just a respectable incline  (8%) as fast as it takes to jack up my pulse, currently about 2.5mph, but that'll increase as I get back into the groove. 

Time for more iron in 9 hours.

Joined..... a...... gym..... tonight.
Nothing fancy,  a little bit bigger than PF, a little smaller than golds. Biggest factors were price, location and equipment.  Specifically cardio equipment,  specifically the stair mill. Got another goal in mind that involves hiking a decent distance over the course of a week with a 30# pack, something around 10k feet of elevation change on each of the two sections.

So of course I started off with 5 minutes on the rower.

Squats 5x5 @ 115#
Then moved on to a Benchpress machine thingamabobber, basically did a pyramid set of 8 reps working down the stack.  Then same deal on the cable row machine.

Then about 5 minutes on the stairmill that got my HR up to 160 very quickly. 

Called it a night.


Lots of fun coming!

Starting with rowing is always good IMO.

Why bench press machine and not free weights?

Partly too lazy to move a bench over to one of the 2 half racks (but they do have 8 smiths, just against my religion to use a smith for Benchpress), but mostly cause it's been years since I been out of my basement gym and wanted to try these feats of technology.   Just having all these new toys will open a new world of programming.

Although my first priorities are dropping some of this deadweight and increasing cardio capacity  (that one should be much easier than the first one).

Holy moley,  just realized I never logged yesterday.  Does it still count? 

Feeling it loud and clear today though.

So.... let me remember this....
Started on the rower.
Squats 5x5 @ 95, 105, then 115 for the last 3. 
Decided to frankenstein an arm day in, shoulder press machine was all wonky, so moved on to DB's.
8 x 25#
8 x 3 @ 35#

Lat pulldowns
8 x 3 @ 120#

Cable Tri PD's w/rope
8 x 4 @ 40#

Bi Curls
8 x 2 @ 25

Then over to the stepmill for 5 minutes of fun.  17 stories of steps, if I remember correctly.  Again, heart rate jacked up almost immediately, but this time I backed off trying to get a little more time, looks like it just has to build up on its own gradually.

So, yeah, got a little stiff/soreness going on today, enough to pop an alieve halfway through the day. 

Onwards and upwards.
Cheers.

Truth in journaling (at least the title).

Gotta play catch up here, the bulk of my headache of getting the summer season ready and rolling is about done. Got the mid summer menu change to iron out and fourth of July,  then it's smooth sailing for awhile.

Life's good.

Front Squats 5x5 @ 45#
Benchpress 5x5 @ 95#
BOR 5x5 @ 105#

Dusting off the cobwebs. Lots of laying down or standing in my life,  not much between,  so squats are a killer at the moment, even at an empty bar.

Life's good.
