Well, I havent been here in a little while due to job constraints but I have been in the gym. Might not be able to check or reply everyday, but I will try to update the journal as frequent as possible.

I took the last 6 weeks off from the gym to catch up on work due to the holiday load, so my lifts have gone down a little. I also didnt want to overdue it since I havent lifted in a little while so I took it easy.

Yeah, 25 minutes in a row on level 7.


My workouts will be kinda hit or miss for awhile. Last Sept. my father-n-law was diagnosed with a brain tumor the size of 2 golf balls. They gave him less than 1 year to live. The tumor is now the size of a baseball and he needs assistance with daily activities. His 2 sons are both extremely lazy and will not assist unless they absolutely have to, so that leaves me and my other brother-n-law (married into the family also) to assist taking care of him. He has to be bathed every morning and night, so we have to rotate and this cuts into my available time to go to the gym. Since I am trying to cut down some, on days when time is limited, I will only do cardio and some days I have to miss altogether.

Cardio:
Stair Climber: 25 minutes. Level 8. 96 floors. 348 calories.

Sorry to hear about your father-law Grump. The family is obviously fortunate to have someone like you to be there. My prayers are with you.

Hams felt a little tight so I didnt push them this round.

**Didnt have my journal so I couldnt add up the cals that the machine guessed that I burned**


Kinda aggravated. If I had been behind the girl on the elliptical, I could have lasted at least 30 minutes on the treadmill trying to catch her :thumbup: but darned if some 70 year old man didnt steal my spot. :mad: :zipit:

I mainly use it because the dip bars are too far apart and hurt my shoulder. It seems to work fine and it is better to have some form of dips than none at all.

U might want to consider putting the rear delt and even traps with the back/pull days...always nice push work.

GrumpyTX
02-14-2006, 03:28 PM
CoCoa, I like to work some muscles both directly and indirectly, that is why the rear delt and traps are done on shoulder day. As you will notice in my workout from yesterday, I will also throw delts in on back days from time to time.
