nah...good workout and you no doubt kept your wife happy.. Wink I will have a quite day today as it's a rest day and it's pissing down with rain outside. I will later jump rope and do some crunches.

Ha, ha. My wife doesn't pay any attention to the leaves on the ground or the roof. I've always been the groundskeeper and the maintenance guy around the house. What makes my wife happy is taking her out to breakfast, a movie or reading to her. She's pretty easy to please.

It is raining here where I live too. -Supposed to rain all week according to the weather report.

Wooo you are hardcore. Well i do myself and even in snow. Once you get warmed up you do not feel the cold. Remember doing boxing training in the Army running in the snow wearing army boots. looked funny tracksuit and army boots but it really got you fit. We run through the forests and over Tank ranges and our training was hard but primitive, Wooo you would have loved it..just your style. So today i will start of my chest / back workout with back, sternum pull-ups ala Gironda. Normaly i start with chest but today i will change it for interest

Tonight was very hard. I had to drop weight on my incline Db presses and drop 1 set from each ex. Instead of 4 sets i did 3...i put this down to me now eating better and cutting calories and junk food. Went for my run direct after weight training and i knew it would hurt. Half way round i just went into a state of zen, i canīt explain it i just detach my mind from the bodily pain. I got to my favourite hill on the way back...itīs sickening because it rises..and rises... i have a name for it, "Bastard". I swear i was detached from the pain. i made it. I will shower and eat now and flop on my sofa.. Grin

sounds like fun! never worry about dropping sets or weight... a long as the muscle feels exhausted then you're good to go

I thought about not posting today because I did not make it to the gym again. However, it seems to me one of the aspects of being mature is that there are ever more things we have to deal with which can impact our commitment to working out.

Today I drove in driving rain 40 miles to Oregon's state capitol because a corporation I chair had our monthly board meeting. As chair, I am obligated to show up for meetings. And as for the drive, other board members show up from all over the state for these board meetings, so I have no excuse for not attending.

My plan was to go directly to the gym before coming home tonight. That did not work out as planned. My sister who lives in Salem, OR has been going through some difficulty. She called me crying into my cell just as I was headed back to Portland. So I literally flipped a U and drove back  to comfort her. By the time I got home it was dinner time and I was worn out.

Sometimes I wish my life were as uncomplicated as it was when I was in my 20's. In those days, I was able to be so self-absorbed that nothing got in the way of a workout. That is not so much the case these days.

Hopefully, tomorrow's report will be more on topic.

I have not jumped rope in years. I should give it a try. It would afford me the opportunity to get some cardio in at home. As it stands the only home equipment I own is a treadmill and that just gets boring after awhile.

intense leg workout sat,,,,leg presses ,,hack squats,,walking db lunges ...extensions,,,hams stiff legged deads supersetted with lying leg curls and calves standing calf raise superset with leg press calf extensions..

I do lunges up and down the sidewalk in front of my house. The distance is probably a little over 100 ft. We live on a hill, so lunging down the hill hits the muscles in a different way then lunging back up the hill. What I like about doing these is that the trigger for me is simply going out to get the paper or the mail. My daughter thinks it freaks the neighbors out somewhat....like I care.

Being a senior citizen, the last thing I want is a saggy ass. Lunges help to prevent this, I'm told.


As for my daily report, I got on the treadmill for a half hour today at home. I just did not feel like driving to the gym.

so on Saturday there is am open day at a martial arts centre in Hannover and i will go and look around. I think i will look into escrima a bit more. I like the idea of empty hand techniques and that every day objects can be used..like a pen or pencil. It is an all round system. so today i will take a few ideas from njflex and incorperate them in my leg workout today. I used to hate leg workouts like most people but i am now getting in to it more. I feel very relaxed today and very motivated...have a few things to do first and will not drive in my car but will walk and get some fresh air and the walk will get some blood flowing in my legs...ready for some squats...
