...I had a nice little intro typed up here but it sounded like I was interviewing for a job, so I'll jump right in.
Belly button: 30
erm, that's why I'm beginning a log. I have been scatter-brained in the gym these days and realized I need to a)write down what I'm doing and b) seek the advice of others- if I ever want to improve. So I suppose lift smartly, in a healthy way, to get strong (i just threw up a little reading that, I'll get back to this).
Background: 18 years of gymnastics until I tore my labrum in my right shoulder. I had surgery and instead of going back to gymnastics, I decided to start living a life outside of the gymnastics gym. I spent the rest of my college years studying abroad and getting drunk (best.choice.ever). I've been dabbling in running, and the past couple years have gotten more serious about the weights. I'm now back in school (Van Wilder, what!?), studying physical therapy.
Here's today's work:
Plate complex (25#, 6-8, 4)
Bent over row
Reverse lunge with rotation
(beg, borrow, and steal-thanks Nick Tumminello! http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/screw_cardio_four_complexes_for_a_shredded_physique)
Bar x 10
Dips supersetted with decline push ups (feet on 24" box)
Body weight 5x8
1 minute hard
30 seconds recovery
I know we're all (myself included) picture/video sluts, so I will work on that in coming posts.
