Ok, I've fatted my way through the first half of the year so I decided to get back into the swing of things and lift heavy for the rest of the year. Been a while since I lifted heavy so my tenative goal is 1500lb raw.

I'll start posting here so if I quit, you can tell me what a puss I am.

Hate pre work out supps. They make me sick in the stomach and on one occasion I have vomited because of them.

Lay pull downs 4x15

Cardio afterwards

Standard stuff - large muscles before small: 2 minutes between sets: aim for 10 reps.

Good job not overdoing your workouts and gradually working back to where you want to be. It can be difficult to resist doing too much too soon and it doesn't pay off in the long run, I've discovered.

45 minutes on the elliptical is pretty amazing. A half hour of cardio is all I have the patience for. At that, I used two different machines to keep from getting too bored. Been fast walking on the treadmill and then hitting the stationary bike. Maybe this week I'll switch one of the other out for the elliptical.

Lots of folks here getting back into the swing of things, including me. Feels darn good too.

I've had the worst 2 days at work in years! But dragged myself to gym and felt 100% better!

Yesterday - 35 minutes eliptical. Was watch in a soccer match and the 1st 25 minutes were a breeze. The made mistake of look at the timer and the last 10 minutes felt like I was climbing Everest.

Today:
First day of moderate weight.
Chest
Hammer strength incline 4x10
DB flies 3x10 (these killed me)
Wide grip bench 3x10 (really should have gone heavier here)
Dips (3 x Cool
I feel good. Wanted to do more. We'll see how I feel in the morning  Smiley

If your body responds to exercise like mine does, you have to wait two days to know if you did too much or not enough.

Chest was sore yesterday and still sore today. But not bad. Will repeat a similar cheat routine next week.
Yesterday: nothing.
Today: shoulders
Machine shoulder press 3x20
Reverse pec dec 4x10
DB shoulder press 2x10
                           2x8
Shrugs (smith machine) 3x15
Side laterals (cable) 3x10

My shoulders never used to get sore, we'll see

Cardio: cleaned back yard. How does a 4 lb dog crap 158 lbs a week  Undecided

Speaking of cleaning the yard, try to imagine how much crap 4 dogs produce. Cleaning it up is a every day project.

More on topic, why so many reps on the presses and your traps? There must be a happy medium, says me who has pathetic traps and delts.
