Its 'bout that Time...


#1

I have logged on and off and I stay focused better when I am logging. Its time for me to clean my shit up and what better place than here.

Perhaps some important stats:

Height: 5'7.5
Weight: 139.3 at this very moment.
Bodyfat:21%
Bench: 130
Squat:240
Deadlift: 265
Push Press: 120
Last 5k: 20:19

Goals...we will see. I have a pretty extensive past in powerlifting and a bit in Olympic lifting and some strongman and crossfit bidnazz. I have side-stepped away from that a few times and dabbled in figure and bikini, which I like. Right now, I would like to improve my conditioning, so I have been throwing in a bit of metabolic work after the strength work I do. Currently, Im trying the ole 5/3/1 as its an approach I really havent tried yet. I like it.
Oh, and I wouldnt mind looking good naked.

Todays workout:
AM:
400m sprint
100 pullups (f*ck! took forever!)
800m sprint
100 push ups
1 mile run
100 squats
2 mile jog.

PM:

90x3
105x3

C2) 1 arm row: 10 per arm x 40

D1) Hanging leg raises x 25
D2) V-ups x 15

Finally! Those are some good numbers - I'm particularly impressed by the 5K time. Takes me half an hour!

Thanks Cal! In the very height of powerlifting days, my running was bogus! I found an old log where I had ran one with my sister in right around 30 and marked that puppy as a PR. I was also 20ish lbs then and quite a bit stronger.

I think I have found a good balance, but always looking for improvement.

M1.)3 egg whites, 2 whole eggs, with 1/2 cup spinach, 2 diced artichoke hearts 1/4 cup feta omelette
1/2 cup plain oatmeal

M2.) 1 can water packed tuna/2 cups spinach/sesame ginger low fat dressing
1/2 Sweet potato
M3.) 6oz Grilled Chicken with Franks MOFUGGIN Hot Sauce <3
1 oz almonds
FRAKKING 4 Oreos...seriously, who left these out?!
M4.) 2 scoops Whey + 4-5 Strawberries, blended
M5.) 3 egg whites, 1 whole egg +spinach
1 oz Almonds
M6.) 1 cup cottage Cheese+Splenda+Cinnamon+1/4 cup crushed almonds (favorite)

100 pull-ups... sounds like a terrible idea, lol (speaking from experience).


#5

Your am workout is so beautifully barftastic! I think I love you. No, I just want to be you.

Too much, too soon? Sorry. I'm excited to read about your training. Damn.


#6

That pull-up and run workout sounds suspiciously like Crossfit, heh. (Actually, I won't diss CF because, despite the koolaid, it does actually make you push yourself further than you might otherwise).


#7

wow 100 pull-ups!

looking forward to following your log.


#8

HI!


#9

Andy--When did you do 100 pullups, guy? (i do believe you, though)

Nadia--not at all! Keep 'em coming! :wink: Glad you are following along.

Cal--I am SO busted, aye? No shame in my game...when it comes right now to conditioning, I like to borrow from
their metabolic stuff. Their strength training is a little too higgly piggly for me, though.

Alexus--It wasnt pretty and...MY HANDS!!!!

Mom--Hey pretty lady!

Update: my last meal of cottage cheese never happened last night...I got home from the lab and fell out almost as soon as my head hit the pillow. Its been a rough week. Naturally, I am now STARVING.


#10

This girl just gets better and better.


#13

Thanks zouk! I'm glad your back, bud


#14

hehehe the hot lady knows who i am... blushes.

Seriously though your numbers are impressive as hell. Whats worse is i can only squat 40lbs more than you, legs day tomorrow i guess for me lol.

I don't normally follow the ladies logs but i think i'll be checking in here quite often.


#15

videos!! I'm requesting them ... for selfish reasons.


#16

Zouk--you did have a pretty epic exit thread....

Bre---I'll try! I have absolutely no one here that i work out with or even anyone i talk to at the gym. I'll seen what i can rig up


#17

I used to do these conditioning routines by a boxer named Ross Enamait.

http://rosstraining.com/blog/

I have a couple of his books. I'm not a fan of his strength workouts at all but his conditioning days kicked the crap out of me. But anytime I see something like '100 pull-ups'... I usually change the workout because half the time you are fucking standing around, lol.


#18

Dood...my hands were disgusting at the end of this craziness. And after deads today, they are
toast. I look like someone tried to stab me and I rassled them with my hands! Shredded wheaties.

#19

Squats ? Sprints ? Chin-ups ? All in the same workout ? Girl you know how to talk dirty to a guy.
