Undertow's Log


#1

Thought I'd start a log to keep track of my workouts digitally, its easier instead of flipping through paper afterall.

Right now I work out with 2 upper and lower body sessions a week with some general conditioning thrown in on the other days.

Goals are just the general get bigger and stronger while staying respectably lean. Right now I'd guess that I'm about 190-195 at 5'9'' or so.

I havnt lifted since Thursday.

I ran the falmouth road race sunday. Its 7 miles.
Finished in a little under an hour 30.

Holy shit you should train for that kinda shit. Soooo sore.

Worked up to 315 and my joints are still blasted so I held off and said I'll give it more time.

Did some curls and some overhead pressing work.
Couple sets of muscle ups about 5 a set.

Note: This ended up being a somewhat light week after overreaching a bit last weekend. I've been doing this workout or close to it for a while now so will probably change it up this upcoming week.

Prob drop the weight a bit and add more volume, sets reps. Well see
