It's amazing that Bacardi was a Cuban product but the family fled to Puerto Rico when  Castro came. We had a bottle of Bacardi from Cuba when I was a kid.  I was drinking Bacardi dark rum today with lime, splash of ginger ale with club soda. Simple and good.

Why only a splash of ginger ale and why club soda? Wouldn't dark rum with ginger ale and lime be just as good? Note: ginger ale is one of the only soda's I like.

Too sweet.  Only want a splash of sweetness. My personal taste.

Figured as much. Like you said, to each his own. I'd go for a Mojito anytime.

Didn't train today but I was in the ocean for two hours. The waves weren't good enough to body surf but I tried my best.

Cold here. The coast would be even colder. I'm thinking our long hot summer is over.  :'(

Trained chest and arms. Changing up my split for awhile. Using a barbell more for chest. I have to watch it. My shoulder is very fragile.  Did everything very controlled and deliberate.

Bench 2 x 6 then 1x1 (weight used is embarrassing due to  my messed up shoulders. Tried to go slow and controlled.)
Incline bar bench 2 x 6
flat flies 2 x 12 50lbs
push ups 2 x max

Two arm one dumbbell behind the head tricep extensions 2 x 10 75lbs
Skull crusher tricep extensions 2 x 8
Rope push downs 2 x 12

Barbell curl 2 x 10 95lbs
Alternate dumbbell curl 2 x 8
Arnold type concentration curls 2 x 14

Forearm wrist curls 2 x 20
reverse wrist 2x 15

Ab wheel roll outs 2 x 23
crunches with a plate behind my head with feet over a bench 1 x 50
ab pulley crunches 2 x 25

forearm gripper work 2 x 20


Drank a vegan protein shake. Milk whey products upsets my stomach.  Cooked a nice steak on the grill for lunch.  Rarely do that.  Dog kept asking for a piece. His big pleading eyes did me in.

That looks like the evil eye not the pleading eye.  ;D

Ran 2.7 miles of a planed 5 mile run on the boardwalk. It was near 90 with no breeze and humid. Think the heat got to me. Pissed I didn't finish. Ran a block and walked a block to get back to my car. I think I went out too fast. I have to do more cardio and lay off the booze.  If I was one of those guys who only ran life would be so much easier. Hard to juggle both lifting and running.

Mel B. works out and drinks like a fish too.

It just takes planning and organization.

Hit 101 degrees down the shore here with heavy humidity. It was in the 89-90's when I ran with no breeze. Who is Mel B?

I noticed your old thread on going from HIT to volume.  I like HIT but there are times when, for instance, I will do something like 5 sets of 50 reps for light barbell curls and 10 sets of 50 reps on light triceps pushdowns.  I will do the same for shoulders for up to 50 reps and back and chest will be the same thing.  The weight stays the same but as the sets progress, the reps tend to go down.   ;D

It all depends upon how I am feeling physically and mentally.  While I do think there is no one "correct" way to train, I also think there are plenty of ways to screw yourself up by training wrong. I have never gotten hurt using light weights with lots of reps but then I've also never gotten hurt going heavy for low reps and sets.  I train to look and feel as good as I can.

That's a sick amount of reps. I couldn't do 5 sets of 50 reps with a feather.

Trained legs today: No warm ups listed.

Leg press 2 x 12 4 plates a side (bent my legs till they wouldn't go any further. No shallow reps with a million pounds for ego.)
Dumbbell squat 2 x 12 80lbs (Upright back. Not deadlifting the weight bent over. Butt all the way down.)
Hack squat 1 x 12 (all the way down as much as my legs would bend)
leg extensions 2 x 20
seated leg curls 2 x 15
standing leg curls 2 x 12

Side bend single dumbbell 1 x 15 90lbs
Hanging leg raise 2 x 23
Hip ups on floor 1 x 25

standing calf 2 x 15 (having Achilles problems. Realized I'm really stiff in flexibility regarding the calf. Going to stretch them out.)
seated calf 2 x 15 90 lbs.

Neck work 1 x all four sides.

Jumped in the pool after. It's hot as hell in NJ.  Drank wine. Not a big fan of wine but it will do when I don't have my beer.

Cardio day. Ran 8 x 440 yards (one lap). Did all of the quarters under 8 minutes pace and the last two under 7 minute pace. Hit the heavy bag for a couple of rounds after. I like hitting the bag when I'm shot. Makes me really dig in to stay explosive.

Ran two mile at 8:42 pace (6.9 MPH) before work. I like the early morning park crowd. When the sun rises they all start their run.

Two days of drinking. Yesterday and today. Tomorrow is a big pool party at my house. I need to get my drinking in check. I will start after the party tomorrow.  ;D  Can't decide what I want my training to look like next week. I guess I will make that decision in the morning.

It is good you enjoy the pool parties while they last. Drink iced tea or lemonade.

Started to do chest today. Every 4 to 6 months sometimes sooner I stupidly try to bench with a bar again thinking it will work. Had 205lbs on the bar and it felt like I was wrecking my shoulder. Why can't I understand that it's over?  There are hundreds of exercises and I don't know why I'm fixated on what I use to do like benching with a bar, press behind the neck and other former staples. I always tell older trainers to do what they can do and forget the rest. I should take my own advice. Nothing wrong with dumbbell benching. Push ups don't hurt at all too. I got so pissed off hurting my shoulder today that I'm torn on taking the week off lifting and just run or try to salvage this training week. I will decide in the morning. I have to quit drinking alcohol so heavily too. I really believe I would be very lean if it wasn't for that.

Hopefully, you didn't get very far with the barbell yesterday since you've trained the same muscles, using the same movements, only with dumbbells.

Ran three miles under a 9 minute pace. It was 91 degrees. Really humid. Afterwards I hit the gym to hit the heavy bag.
