Re: Fitness Checkin

Eh, it could mean anything. Water weight, food in your stomach, extra muscle (which is heavier than fat), etc.

Was the scale balanced properly when you stepped on it?

I'm moving at the end of this week back to my college town. One thing that bugs me is the idea of finding a new gym. I am seriously considering sneaking into my college's rec center and work out there. I gave them enough money for tuition over the years. I should be able to use that place as long as I live!
You're moving AGAIN?
It is an unfortunate side-effect of going broke. I'm moving back to take back my old job.

Also, squats suck.
Ah is this working out well?

I haven't done squats in years, and missed legs for over a month but in two weeks I'm already repping 450. I love the overall effect of squats.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Well, my old job welcomed me back with open arms, and I've already made more money than I made in 3 months of personal training (I've been back 2 weeks). I've still got some prospects in the training field, though, so hopefully something will happen with that soon.

I'm attempting to get back into a routine, and I'm acting completely out of character and trying to workout in the morning/early afternoon now, since I'm working at night. Getting my diet back in order is the hardest part because my new kitchen isn't fully set up, so I haven't been eating as much as I need.

Overall, though, I am confident. My new gym is awesome.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I need more weight. Badly. But after three weeks, got an inch and a half back n my arms and the squats have resulted in an extra two on my thighs... which I need the most work on.

All this because I bought trunks...

Re: Fitness Checkin

I did heavy squats and deadlifts yesterday for the first time since moving (so about 3 weeks), and I can barely walk today. Ouch!

Re: Fitness Checkin

A friend of mine called me up a few weeks ago and asked if I wanted to go for a run. Without planning to, it became a daily thing, then he canceled his membership at his old gym and joined the Y I go to here in town. Now we're 3 weeks into a great routine, doing cardio and lifting and the whole shebang. I'm feeling way better in general than I used to, back in the days of going to the gym maybe once a week. My next step would be to cut down on the constant salami sandwich intake...gotta take these things one step at a time!

Re: Fitness Checkin

I don't know why, but my legs have been having a hard time the last few workouts I've tried. They just get exhausted really quickly. Maybe I need to give them more of a rest.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I have rarely come into this forum...but opened it for the P90X thread and thought I'd read this one as well.

Looks like you guys use this thread to post about your workouts, progress made, and general accountability. I might check in here some, because I need the accountability.

My program is fairly straightforward. I was pretty out of shape, but started working out again back in early November and have been doing really well.

I'm running about 18-20 miles a week (running has always been my favorite form of exercise - I love running) and have signed up for the Peachtree Roadrace on July 4 (the Peachtree is one of the largest 10Ks in the US, for the non-runners reading this). I currently run 3 to 4.5 miles at a time...but am adding distance each week to get to Peachtree shape. My 2010 goal is to try and get to half-marathon distance, and I'd like to run a marathon in 2011 - specifically, the Marine Corps Marathon in October of 2011.

I also do some spinning (I have a spinning bike and treadmill at home), do the elliptical at the gym, and also do some weight machines there occasionally...but for strength I mainly do some of the Beachbody programs - specifically Power 90 and Slim in 6....and do some dumbbell upper body work at home. I also do some Jillian Michaels workouts on occasion - particularly the 30-Day Shred.

I work out 5 days a week minimum...but try to do 6 days most weeks. That's really about it.

This thread is really long so I won't be reading the whole thing...but from the last few pages it sounds like you guys do alot of weights. I'm not sure I will ever be a gym rat weights person...but I recognize the value of strength work and try to especially do upper body stuff since the running, spinning and elliptical have my lower body improving without much extra effort outside of the Beachbody DVDs I do.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Had another short gap in my leg workouts. I picked up again to sets of 455 lbs for squats. Today or tomorrow I will attempt to get back to 500 for a set. Not sure if I'll go much further than that at my age...its far off my best, but I'm quite happy to get to 500 again.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I have decided to dedicate an entire day to just my triceps. I'm not sure why, but I'm doing it.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Just took my bike out to 7-11 (5.2 km there and back) to get a newspaper. First time I've rode it since last fall, and I can't believe how sore my thighs were half way there.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I'm not sure why, but over the last couple weeks I feel like my hamstrings have completely vanished. I can't even bend at the knees without concentrating really hard. It's weird.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Took a few weeks off, I've been busy, but in the next week or two I will start a very serious new phase of my workouts..
