I would love a treadmill at home.  I would just watch tv or listen to music.  And before anybody tells me I would never use it, I would.  I stayed with a friend in melbourne years ago and she had a treadmill.  I would get up every morning and walk on it for an hour..I never missed a day and I stayed with her for a month.  So I know I would definitley get good use out of one.  I just get bored walking on a treadmill at the gym.  

Currently, our treadmill out in the garage. It is in a location where it is usable, although our garage isn't exactly well decorated or climate controlled. I should move it back into the house. I had it set up in one of our spare bedrooms on the main floor in hopes that my wife would use it, but she never did. It was also upstairs in the loft area for awhile. I liked having it up there because it is a nice open and bright space. It is a bitch to cart up the stairs though because it is not only heavy, but also awkward. Right now, the treadmill isn't seeing much action.

It is always great putting up Christmas decorations and just a nice when you take them down and everything is back to normal. I took ours down on January 1. I still have some exterior decorations in the garage which I need to haul up to the attic. My next project is to organize the garage and the attic. It is hard to fine what you are looking for when things are disorganized.

lifted yesterday, bench ,bb rows, curls clean and press, walk 2 miles. today I went to boxing class and the instructor had to go out of town so I wound up in the fitness center instead. 20 minute run on the treadmill, back extension, leg press, deadlifts, 1 arm dumbbell presses and medicine ball sit ups.
 I like using that nice equipment every once and while but what I have here gets the job done.

Abdominals. 


Situps x 5 sets, first set 15 reps and rest 10 per set
Reverse crunches x 3 sets, 15 reps per set
Weighted side bends x 3 sets, 15 reps each side (only do these with light db's, 7 kg, 8kg, 9kg)
Crunches x 1 set at 50 reps
weighted crunches x 3 sets, 15 reps per set (started to sneeze on the last set so knew it was time to stop)

I am training abs on their own, since this seems to be causing the most swelling in my nose.  I am also sleeping up on two pillows at night, which is going to take some training on my part to get used to however if it makes me wake up in the mornings with little swelling then it's worth it.  I have slept this way for the past 3 nights and my nose feels and looks great.  I am going for a brisk walk this afternoon once this sun is less intense.

Funny how things repeat themselves.. i was looking through a muscle mag that my son buys now and again and he asked me about Reg Park as there is an article on the Reg Park old school 5x5 training. I remember as a kid asking my Father nearly the same things except i asked about Steve Reeves.

Donīt know how you manage your tricep training after a good solid chest workout.. I find it tires my Triceps out too much. Reverse grip pushdowns a nice exercise too, got it all covered.. Grin
