Start date 9-22. Last week. Tried blogging last week, wouldn’t work.
Stats: 5’10", 235 at start, bodyfat too high to mention, 38" waist. No idea on strength levels except with grip. Can do #2 COC for 3 reps, lever a 10 lb sledge.
Goals: 1. get my weight down to 200 lbs by 12-21, day we leave for Florida vacation.
- get my bodyfat% down to 12% or less by 2-20-09, right before the BBQ cookoff in Houston.
How? Starting with RFFL program from Waterbury. Go for 8 weeks.
A Workout at 5x5
Got all reps in, lighter weights, pushups killed my wrists. No bike so i did dumbbell swings, maybe got 3 minutes of actual work, kicked my fat ass.
B workout at 4x10
Worse than Monday. No pull up bar available so i did barbell clean and jerk. Missed reps on all 4th sets, except Waterbury rows. Again did swings, same amount of time.
Missed Fridays workout, spent the weekend clearing brush, dragging trees, stuck to eating clean on Sunday, Saturday was at an outdoor festival helping cook. Chicken on a stick is the death of me.
Did the A workout 3X10 Also bought a stopwatch to keep the rest times stict.
Romanian DL Split snatch w/ lunge w 10 lbs, got all sets
Swissball pushup w/ jackknife. - got first two, 10 reps on last, trying not to hurl
Lunge w/ overhead press - all sets, 15 in each hand, hate lunges
Bent over row w/ back extrensions - all sets, 50 lbs on bar.
2x20 sec squats - all sets, hurts like hell
tried for 10 minutes on db swings, breaking as needed, maybe did 4 minutes of work in that 10.
Other workouts have been at night, late, due to no time when I get in from work. Best time for me may be in the morning, before kids have to get up to get ready for school. Did so this date, felt better all day than I have in weeks. Diet needs work, have been 3 days with no cokes, but need more protien. Will start food log this week.
10-1-08. Scale said 228 this morning. Long way to go, need to stay away from scales, focus on the work.
Will lift tonight, then Friday morning, get in a morning workout routine. Only time I have.
