Random guy asked to work in. Made our workout take way more time so we didn’t get to hit weighted dips. A group of 4 is too many.

Rest Day

Weighed in this morning before shift and empty. I started on the ship in October at 295lbs. Current weight is 260, which is wild. Who would have thought restricting calories, strength training, and cardio would make someone lose weight. I’m looking forward to going home and trying my first bulk to see what will happen.

There’s a body building coach back home that wanted to work with me. Maybe I’ll give that a shot and really se where I can push myself to, since I clearly need help with my workout structure.

What do you all think of my workouts? Is there anything I could tweak?

I could never work with 4. Back in the ship days we tried it a couple times. Id find myself doing SOMETHING in between - thats the only way to make it work, otherwise its just too much rest.

Are you by chance in the pacific, eastbound now? I just visited CVN70 who have been out since October and are headed back to the west coast now.

I’m on the Dwight D. Eisenhower

I hate like a horse today and felt petty well. My arm also felt much better today, another couple weeks and I’m sure it’ll be back to 100%. Shoulders tomorrow, can’t wait.

Legs tomorrow. It’s mentally hard out here, 7 days a week 12 hour shifts. Shits lame, thank god for the gym.

Do you wear a colored shirt? Which color if so?

Edit to add:
It is mentally hard. And takes a physical toll as well. Still, one of the best things you can do with your life at this age.

Forced rest day. Had a last minute meeting with one of my guys due to a red cross message. Two leg days in a row I’ve had to miss. Wont take my next rest day so I can make legs up.

Felt pretty strong today. Just really focused on y 4 second down 1 second up 1 second rest. Starting with the drop set probably wasn’t the smartest, I think next week we’ll end with those.
