Do you have any specific strength goals?

Kiaran
02-23-2008, 11:24 AM
Finally found your journal here. Good luck with the goals. Looking dedicated as hell right now (I'm way to lazy to post my meals, lol). Makin my hungry reading your journal too, heh.

Workout looks pretty solid but really taxing. The Upright Rows ever bother your wrists or shoulders? I stopped doing them last year cause my wrists always get pissed off. Where do you do your sprints at (indoor track)? If you can pull it all off, week-in-week-out, you're gonna be in some good shape. Don't over do it though, bro. 1 day rest per week isn't much.

Lookin forward to seeing the progress.

Klotz - Wsup wit u? I actually don't hav ne specific strength goals fo this month as I just wanna make progress from week 1 to week 4, rite now. Then month 2, I'm a set sum strength goals. Rite now, I just wanna make sure I move up a lil weight in each major lift for these first few weeks.

Thanks fo stoppin by, Kiaran. Haha, yea, postin my meals is just a way to keep me motivated to eat rite cuz it ain't fun to b postin a whole bunch of junk food. N tha work outs r pretty taxin, but I'm lookin to adjust a lil each week. Tha Upright rows ain't too bad as I use a rope cable on a machine so givs me a lil more flexibility wit tha wrists, but I had problems when I used to do it wit tha bar, regular or EZ. As for sprints, I just do it uphill rite now at my homie's house cuz I like to do em right after bag work n he's got tha bag. Haha. I'll try not to overdo it tho, just keepin makin sure I'm aight. Haha j/p.

Thanks Stumprrp.

Well, I'm out back at my ol college fo these next couple days.

Sleep: 5:15 AM - 12:10 PM

I'm a c wat kinda work out I'm a do today to replace bag work and do my sprints, n scavenge fo meals.

Peace!

Skillz
02-23-2008, 05:41 PM
Yep. I feel u, I'm a do that at tha end of tha month when I push sum maxes n put sum goals.

Jed - Fitday? Na ain't checked it out but that sounds kinda tite, I'm a hav to giv it a look...Good lookin out!
