On Thurs I stopped working upper body. I Was planning on doing extra leg work. I have been pretty busy lately so I wound up taking fri thru Sunday off. Today I am off from work for the first time in 2 weeks, so I am getting ready to go twice today. Cardio and abs, and later, legs. I'll be doing legs twice this week. Meanwhile I'll be icing and taking Ibuprofen for my elbow for one more week to be sure. My diet has been almost immaculate. I'm dropping fat, and retaining muscle and (I was) retaining strength.

PS Where's your sig from? Tigersharks can't reach mach 3.

It's from Bloom County. I'll see if I can find the strip.

Good luck with the elbow. Is that a chronic thing, or something that came up with the recent training?

Not chronic really, happened once in Dec and I took a week and a half off but apparently it wasn't enough. It seems to happen when I do heavy triceps..first time was the day after doing heavy dips with multiple 45s.

^I love a good triceps workout. I find building my triceps up to be the most satisfying body part to improve.
It's odd how very few people understand tat - but I do

I've got a 5x5 deal to kick off the year after being decidedly lazy over the holidays. It's something reasonably new so it's keeping the boredom away.

I've been trying to take it easy as my backs in pretty bad shape, but I'll be back training at weekend in wrestling and am considering going back to rugby on Wednesdays as it's right outside my house and would give me a more entertaining cardio workout.

I've got two weeks to really enjoy myself as I might go back into a normal job at the start of next month which would screw up the routine.

What upsets me more though is that I'm actually losing my belly. I was beginning to really enjoy it being there

Re: Fitness Checkin

My new gym, while convenient, is very much on the small side, and there is no squat rack. I need to figure out a new leg routine.

Hi chickens!

Ran 3 miles in 26:33 on Monday night. This is one of, if not the, best times I've had for a 3 mile run.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Well I've been lax about posting but I did go XC skiing on Saturday, aerobic weight-training on Sunday, pilates on Monday and weights yesterday.

Tonight I'm planning on throwing in a salsa dvd for fun.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I just got back from my gym. Today's workout was really weird. When I was on the elliptical, my heart rate was all over the place. First it dropped to the low 130s and then it went up to the 180s when it should have been in the 150/160s range.
Since I didn't feel dizzy I still finished my routine and feel fine now.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I know what you mean about the legs.. love that soreness.

Yeah, it was 740 in plates, and the machine says the sled is 60. I felt insanely burly!

I never count the sled with leg press.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Usually I don't but it made for a nice round number. Either way, 740, 800... for me that's a PB.

'Sides, I've seen people - mostly women - use just the sled as resistance. So it can "count" for something.
