Back/triceps this morning, solid day, body seems to be efficient right now. Eating a ton and haven't noticed any negative weight gain. Starting to get a little sick, fiance went and got tested for covid, luckily negative. But I think she might have strep, hence I might be getting strep. My typical stance for whenever I get sick is to eat a lot, drink a lot of fluid, and do a lot of cardio. Usually works well for me!

Big weekend of eating and sleeping. Body feels 110%. Might be playing in a golf tournament towards the end of next week, so I'll probably reduce calorie intake a little bit to lean out. Play better that way.

Lifted shoulders/biceps on Saturday, legs/cardio/abs yesterday, and chest this morning. Starting running more frequently, going pretty well. Usually pretty comfortable at a 7:30/mile pace for 3 miles.

Highlight of the weekend, fiance said my muscles looked big yesterday lmao.

Did a decent amount of pullover and stiff arm pull down for lats and feel pretty smoked.

Is it possible I weighed 188 this morning and 196.8 at 6pm? Because that happened. Did back & bi's today - it got hot out and very humid again after some mild weather - so it was a pain but glad I went!

Damn, did you lick a salt stone all day?!

I usually fluctuate 4-5 lbs from morning to evening.

Good question - I did eat a handful of Trader Joe's Frito's because my wife was eating them with guac and I couldn't resist. That was post workout along with veggie pasta with meat sauce. I didnt even think of the Fritos and water retention! I worked outside for a couple hours today before the gym so once I was lifting I was extremely thirsty - drank 3/4 gallon.

Didn't make it to the gym over the weekend since my mom was in town. Managed to get a run in each day though, went for 3 miles on Saturday and 5.5miles on Sunday.

I was back in the gym this morning for chest day. It was a solid day, but I was bloated as hell from eating everything in sight yesterday lol. Will hopefully get 1 more day in the gym tomorrow morning before I have to travel for work the rest of the week. Biggest issue with traveling is that hotel gyms usually blow, will most likely just run a lot this week but that is what it is.

Did a little fishing all last week down in Cabo, so made it to the resort gym one day for a quick chest back pump. Got lazy and skipped yesterday.

Trying to get myself mentally motivated to head back in today and out of vacation mode. Weighed 213lb. (jeans, polo, super cool Sperry's) on my work's freight scale yesterday. I'm usually hovering between 200-202lb. Gotta kick up the cardio to make this melt away

Today was a total body workout and apparently pulled something or tweaked my lower back. I didn't feel anything during the workout. I was able to get in for a massage today so that helped but still extremely tight. Tomorrow is an off day so hope I can do a light warm up so I can stretch.

I feel this. Pretty sure I've torn something in my left oblique while doing windscreen wipers on the chin up bar a few weeks ago. Crazy feeling. It "pops" when I bend or twist in certain directions. Have been taking it easy on abs until it's fully healed. Tonight is supposed to be my off night, but I'm thinking about going in to do some cardio. I've picked up some fluff after starting a bulk cycle already.

How long does it take you to do a total body routine? I'm trying to come up with routines that aren't so time inclusive, but I honestly don't think there's a way.

Dr. cleared me to move up to lifting 20 lbs!!!! Still won't let me run though. I guess I'll have to continue with 22oz curls.

Right nwo I do my lumbar stretches (almost every 2 hours) then take a short walk. Ice at night. Didn't take any meds yesterday, a bit tighter when I woke up today.

And of course, we progressed to RED COVID rating, so the gym opened back up indoors. . .

I can understand being under doctors orders to restrict the amount of weight you can lift. My docs have been telling me to knock it off with the weight training due to the enlargement in my aorta where it originates from my heart. I literally laughed at them when they told me the max I can lift is 30lbs. This was last year. I've ignored them but have modified how I exert myself.

I do a lot of combo moves when I do full body. I'm not trying to bulk up. My goal has always been tone and lean. My workouts take anywhere from 30-40 minutes and stretching after is about 15-20 minutes. I don't have any desire to work out longer than that lol.

I attached the workout I did Tuesday am. Today I'm going to try body weight legs to see how my back holds up.

Gotcha! That makes sense. I'm trying to bulk now but I'm not trying to get big either. I spent most of my life being overweight, I'm trying to get to 155. Did weigh 240, got down to 211 before I started the gym, currently at....let's just say less than 140. I overshot my goal trying to get a flat stomach. Obviously it didn't work. Now the goal is to gain all winter and cut back down in the spring to see if that yields the last two ab sections to complete the 8 pack.

I'm doing a split, albeit an odd one. S, M, T - I hit all muscle groups. Take Wednesday off, then repeat S, M & T's workout with different exercises Thursday and Friday night, then take off Saturday. I've got to where I can knock 3-4 muscle groups each night, right now, 3 sets per group in a bout an hour and each group twice a week.

I do something similar except not as many full body days. I typically do 3-4 sets depending on time and intensity.

Starting the swimming season now that the weather is getting colder. Going from 20 miles +/- per week on the bike to 1/2 mile per week in the pool. I want to increase my distance to 3/4 mile per week. Doesnít sound like a lot but itís what I do. Plus several walks per week around the neighborhood.

Any swimmers in the house? Rec/fitness not competitive.

I was on travel for work last week. Packed clothes to workout, but never had a chance. Think I put in close to 60hrs over a 4 day span lol. Anyways finally got back into the gym this morning. Prior to the break I was pushing pretty hard. Body felt well rested and I didn't seem to put on any unnecessary weight. Plan to bring things back up to speed this week although my dad is coming down for the weekend so I'm sure I'll be eating and drinking too much again. I love having plans, but sometimes I wish I just had a week or two of nothingness lol.

Let me clarify, adding muscle is more difficult than losing fat.

Most definitely but don't tell that to a fat chick.
