New Log - new day!
still training at 5am on Tues/Thurs and in the mornings on Sat/Sun.
regular 4 day split, with an emphasis on Bench and Deads
I train Bi’s/Tris twice per week, one heavy day, and one for reps - Vikings gots to have big gunz, no?
so here it is as follows
Sat - Chest
Sun - Back
Tues - Shldrs
Thurs - Deads
I also have an emphasis on Cardio, my son and me are taking a trip to Iceland in June, that will encompass some hiking, and he’s challenged me to increase my cardio fitness and to lose some BF.
I am 6’ even, 225-230 - bout 18% bf. I could stand to get down to 215 and then some abs will start poking through. this is a good goal, however I am afflicted with gym psychosis - that is, I step into the gym and want to be the strongest guy there, and then I get home, look in the mirror, and want to be the slim/sexy guy that I used to be. conflicting goals, if you ask me - but whatever - I’ll keep motoring on.
I started doing my version of the Paleo diet, so far I’ve been able to drop 3-4 lbs of bf.
been dealing with some shit lately, moms broke her hip, she’s 77 and not in great shape - total mind-fuck when you commit a parent to rehab-nursing home. this has derailed me a bit.
I’d like to think that this log will keep me on track.
anyway - the title? Chip Away is an AeroSmith song, it refers to a person struggling against odds to gain teh affection of a hottie. but as a metaphor, it can refer to our struggle in any and all things, where persistence and preserverence is often better than skill or luck.
