Are you going to train abs after legs Donny?  I just would never do my abs first as I wouldn't want to tire then before squats.

karen my workout went totally diffrent. No i like to warm up with abs it warms my abs and lower back, i know what your thinking it will tire my "core" but i am OK. so it went like this today::
 Abs and skipping as my original plan...

leg extension3x15 Superset with
squats 3x12

Leg curls 3x15 SUPERSET with
DB stiff deads 3x15 ( i know i was not going to do them but my head said DO THEM!!)
Calf raises as Original plan.

when i did the pre-exhaust superset with squats i squated down with a flat bench under my ass for safety as i really went for it. I am lying now on my couch like an old man,,, Grin Now with pre-exhaust some say you will reach cardio failure before muscle failure but as i do lots of cardio i can cope.

A good read about pre-exhaust wrote by Alan who i believe writes here too on getbig. A couple of exercises i do not like in the article, bench press to neck and sissy squats but a very good read...

Yes it's dehyrdating for the skin.  I always have to use a really good moisturizer at night when sleeping in air con.  Really air con is not healthy but in this extreme heat it's either that or keep waking up from sweating at the back of my neck/hair. 

Living in Oregon, we only get a few days of uncomfortably hot weather a year. It seems unnecessary to have air conditioning here. We have a ceiling fan in the loft. The furnace fan can also be used without heat to circulate the air in the house when it is hot. Supposedly, the older one gets the more susceptible to temperature extremes they are. Being one who is older, I have yet to have a problem with the few days in late summer that the inside of our home gets up to 75 or 80 degrees farenheit.

Having said the above, most houses in my area do have air-conditioning. I know people that start running it when the temperature gets up to around 80 degrees outside. This seems ridiculous. In the winter, they turn the thermostat up to 75 to get warm and in the summer they turn it down to 65 to cool off. To me they are simply spoiled energy hogs. Some friends of mine argue over the thermostat, he's always too cold and she's always too hot....wouldn't want to pay their energy bills. My cousin who lives in Main never turns her heat on above 50 degrees farenheit. We don't visit her in the winter. My son did and he said he nearly froze. I guess it is to each his own.

If it works for you then by all means do it Donny.  I was just wondering that's all.  I guess it was old school to train abs first and then train other bodyparts, but in recent years that has all changed and they recommend to train abs of a workout.  I sometimes squat down onto a bench and really focus on squeezing my glutes.  I will keep legs together for this, as opposed to having a wider stance.  I like to vary it for squats.  Another one I love is sumo squats.  It is so awesome for hitting the inner thighs, glutes, quads and hams.

yeah i as i wrote on another thread i use staggered sets too for abs and calfes..i got the idea for training abs first from Bill Pearl when i tel with him some years ago...I just had the seat end of the bench behind me and just touched it lightly i did not straddle the bench..was for for safety as i have no power rack. I could not squat as low as normal but today i feel it..some snow today but i will go for a walk/run later..

Shit I couldn't stand a weight vest.  It's bad enough having to drag my own body around without any additional weight.   Grin  I will get back to weights tomorrow.  I spent the day getting jerked around waiting for the store where I got my iphone from, to replace my charger since it was faulty and stopped charging last night.  Then I didn't feel like training later in the evening as I drink too much water and then am up all night peeing.

I walked down to the curb today to pick up the Sunday paper from the paper box. It is 30 degrees farenheit outside; very crisp and nice with the sun shinning. Whenever the sun shines in Oregon, we are happy regardless of how cold it is out.

I am reading all of your posts about your various exercise routines. If I don't hit the gym next week, one of you needs to come to Oregon and slap me upside my head. Each week, I say this is the week I start back working out and then something gets in the way of this happening. I know it is just a matter of prioritizing things better, but I am having a hell of a time doing that lately. Other than a few business calls, a breakfast meeting and lunch with a friend, I don't believe there is anything on my calendar next week. NO EXCUSES!

I just wish I was anywhere else except in this horrible harsh hot and scorching country.  Yeah I am having one of those negative feel sorry for myself days.  I am over this heat...I am over my clothes sticking to me and constantly sweating.  I am over my aching and overly sensitve nipples and I am over not sleeping until 3am at nights because I cannot get used to sleeping up on pillows.  I am over my dark circles under my eyes...I never had them before surgery.  And I feel like miss piggy.  I am supose to like how I look after I get my nose done and straightened but today I just prefer how I looked before...swollen free and no circles under my eyes.  Hopefully I feel better after I train today.  Angry

Change of plan, was supose to do legs but instead trained bis and tris.  I just wanted a quick workout and I didn't feel like doing any big muscle groups.  I noticed my arms were stronger and I am back to the weights I was doing before I developed the asthma from the upper sinus blockage and from the time off I had after the op.  So that was a good feeling...to be back where I once was in regards to strength.  It didn't take me that long to focus from the neck down and I forgot that I was tired and over the whole swelling thing.

Incline db curls x 5 sets
barbell straight bar curls x 4 sets
tricep pressdowns V bar x 5 sets
rope pressdowns x 4 sets

Finished off with 60 mins brisk walking outdoors.

I prefer dumbells over barbells in most cases.  Yes sometimes its good to adapt to how you are feeling in regards to training and other times you have to push yourself to do something you don't really feel like doing.
