i like to throw in some cycling too with running.  really works the muscles around the knee. I think it helps prevent joint pain. well it helps me. so tonight i will do legs..

i think i will try a stevo Giant set tonight as i will be working out fairly late before we close so will need to work fast. training Antagonistic muscles.

Squats
Seated Leg Curls
Leg Press
stiff legged Dead lifts

Calves i will do time permitting and the Giant set might also include leg extensions. sets at least 3 if time permits 4-5 per exercise.

This type of Giant set is not so intense as training a single muscle group but i like working opposite muscles together at times. Legs, arms, chest/back perfect.


I think this is the first summer I didn't throw in some bike riding. Never injured myself on a bike unless I crashed.  Grin  Great form of cardio. I'm not a very good cyclist but I if I go out for an hour ride I try to never coast but keep pedaling the entire way. I never feel the weakness from cycling that can feel sometimes from a hard distance run. Don't understand the underlining reasons why.  I use to ride a racing type bike but the comfort for me was terrible. Now I use a really nice hybrid bike. I go a lot slower with the thicker tires and upright seating position but I am working out with the same effort so the comfort is worth it to me.

Like I said before I haven't got all the answers. I just find if I hit two work sets with one non taxing warm up set and no warm up  as I hit the second exercise for a body part I can use heavier weight than spinning my wheels with two or three sets of sub maximal sets before pyramiding to that top weight. Of course something like leg presses and squats might take more than one warm up set. Tell me what you think about it Njflex. We all know there is no one way to train or optimal way to train for everyone or we would all be on the same program.
I hear ya,,,I like that u have that nice home gym,i go to gym but I have a home set up which is enough if I tax myself with supersets or pump type rep sets I can get by ,I have 3 kids and wife that works nites if I have no sitter or she's on schedule I have to train at home ,otherwise 4 days at gym no problem.i work around it and never get stale so its working

I hear you on having difficultly with work and family. I had a lot of obstacles such as working revolving shifts. Working steady nights. Driving 105 miles to work at 3:30AM. With my 4 kids it wasn't always easy getting the workouts in. Luckily my job in quite few locations have gyms that I would hit when work allowed. Combining that with my home gym I always got the workouts in. I think the most difficult was the night shift. I always felt exhausted and sleep deprived.

Now that I'm retired I find I have all the time in the world but sometimes when you are the most busy you can paradoxically get the most productive workouts in. Larry Scott once wrote in effect, "During my prime I worked a 8 hour shift. I then hit the gym for two hours then went to night school." He said they were the most productive workouts he ever had.

A friend of mine is a big fan of the South Carolina cocks football team. I know some of you are from England and Scotland. The Cock refers to fighting male chickens.  It's there mascot. My friend is always talking about the cocks. I really try not to burst out laughing.
Go the South Carolina Cocks... get your friend this t shirt ... Grin

Day off for me from the weights. I'm staying away from running for awhile to let injuries clear and to rest up from the exhaustion I have been feeling. Actually walked today instead of running for two miles. Felt good not to be pounding myself into the ground with cardio and felt completely relaxed when I was done. Maybe next week I'll gradually start reintroducing running back into my program.

To avoid the pounding effect on your system caused by running, try bicycling. It's great fun. It is low impact (unless you get into a smash up with a car or truck). Mostly, you can cover a lot more territory and see a lot more scenery when biking. When I get home from the wedding, I am going either have my old bike tuned up or buy a new one and use it everyday.

This morning I weighed 190 lbs. Not a big loss but down from 206 about a year ago. Soon, I am going to be a skinny mini. Lunch today was a large glass of V-8 juice. V-8 juice is loaded with potassium. Tomorrow, I am headed to Banana Republic to pick up some new chinos. My old ones look like gunny sacks because they are too big in the waist.
