Another attempt at chest/shoulders/tris.
Standing shoulder press:
Skullcrushers: I had to do these lying on the ground due to lack of a bench.
Pushups: Should have done these before the skullcrushers.
A grand total of 13 pushups. That blows.
Looking into a gym membership will do you a world of good for what you are after. No need to rush into it though, just look around if you haven't already, and dial in on a spot.
Working with a nice split at home in the meantime, stay on it man.
Back and biceps tonight:
Deadlift: I love deadlift. It has always been a favorite of mine. These felt good tonight. I had more in me, but I don't want to rush things.
Bent over row:
Barbell curl: These have always been a weakness. Damn skinny arms.
Thanks for stopping by with some encouragement. I plan on buying a rack and bench with some tax return money. Between work and school and two young kids, working out at home is easier for me right now. With a year's worth of gym fees, I could probably buy most everything I need and have it forever.
The running and the leg workouts are going to be on hold for a bit. I went to the doctor this morning for some foot/ankle issues that have been bothering me for a while. He is suspecting gout or a stress fracture. I had some blood work done and a couple x rays taken, so I should find out later what the problem is.
Sorry to hear it, hopefully this will be a minor setback if any at all.
No doubt you will find a way to work around this plight.
Xrays were negative and uric acid levels were normal, so no gout. My left foot is still swollen pretty bad. Doc is gonna treat it as a stress fracture. Gotta wear a protective shoe/boot to keep my foot from flexing for about three weeks. I'm gonna try and still get some upper body work done.
On a better note, we are getting back a pretty healthy tax refund in a couple weeks, so the garage will have a rack and a bench. When my foot heals completely, I'm going to visit a local store that specializes in running shoes and have them fit me with the right ones. I have a feeling that the shoes I have been using might have contributed to my injury.
Weighed in at 199.9 this morning. Still resting my swollen foot. I'm gonna get out and find some seated exercises to do. I can't stand taking this much time off lifting. I even miss the running a little bit.
Sorry to hear about the foot issues, but when you get a rack your lifting will skyrocket, so don't sweat the time off in the meantime!
You will be good to go soon enough bro, time is the key.
I couldn't stand it any longer. I had to get into the garage and lift a little. I did a couple seated exercises to keep from putting too much weight on my foot. It's still pretty swollen after being on my feet all day, but there is little to no pain, which makes it even harder to not work out.
Seated military press:
Seated dumbbell curls:
It felt good just to lift a little bit. I really miss deadlifts though.
Good on ya for getting in there and getting something done!
Update: It's been a shitty week. My father in law passed away last Friday. I've been busy helping take care of business related to that. As a result, diet has been shit. My foot is still not 100% so I can't even go lift or run to clear my head.
Sorry to hear of the death in your family...gonna be a good day when you can get back to it.
Sorry to hear of the death in the family; I know it's a hard time and that there's a LOT of stuff that needs taking care of at times like this.
Despite all that's happening, make sure to take time out for yourself too.
When it rains it pours. I aggravated an old back injury on Sunday. I usually do it once or twice a year. This time I decided to try something crazy and go see my doctor about it. He's got me on some meds for inflammation and muscle relaxers. Then I start physical therapy on the 30th. Doc seems to think it is a muscular issue, and that physical therapy will help fix and prevent these problems. So now the running and lifting is on hold for a bit.
hope the back gets sorted out quickly, bud! I know how bad back injuries can be - put you out of action for a long time.
