Weekly Weigh-In / Fit Report – Apr. 12th, 2016 – 5×5 Workout A

Another two-fer post today, weigh-in and workout. I managed to get in to use the scale at the gym today, so let’s start there. To begin with, my weight is unchanged from the last time I weighed in, 157.6 lbs. … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – Apr. 5th, 2017 – 5×5 Workout A

Man, my legs are tired. Probably not as tired as they’d be if there hadn’t been torrential rain around the time I needed to go to work yesterday. Otherwise I would have biked, and then they’d be more tired. But … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – Apr. 3rd, 2017 – 5×5 Workout B

Today we enter the spring chapter of my workouts, which basically means that I’ve started biking in to work. 12.5 km each way, give or take, and a good portion of the way home is uphill. I must admit I … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – Dec. 1st, 2016 – Cardio Day

Today was supposed to be a weigh-in day, but I couldn’t get into the room where they keep the body composition scale as someone was using it. It’s a real pain in the ass that they don’t keep it out … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – July 6th, 2016 – 5×5 Workout B

Back for my second day of Stronglifts 5×5. Today was Workout B – squats, overhead press and deadlifts. Again, these are new exercises to me, and I’m glad the weight is low so I can work on my technique. I’m sure my … …but wait, there’s more! »

Weekly Weigh-In / Fit Report – June 30th, 2016 – Abs/Core

Weigh-in day! And look at that, same as last week! Well, from a weight point of view. Those other numbers have all changed, and my water is up, so potentially that means I’ve lost body fat, but who knows, really. … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – June 28th, 2016 – Arms/Chest

Yesterday a coworker (the one who showed me how to do a squat) sent me info on a strength training program called Stronglifts 5×5. It’s a freeweight program consisting of 5 exercises (squats, bench press, deadlifts, overhead press, and barbell … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – June 27th, 2016 – Legs/Back

So I’m still trying to figure out my new routines, so today was another day of experimentation. Mild experimentation, but experimentation nonetheless. Today’s tweak was taking leg extensions out of the routine and subbing in barbell squats. Squats are a … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – June 21st, 2016 – Abs/Core

Another complicated workout of figuring things out. And it certainly didn’t start well. I hopped on the treadmill to start today’s workout, and almost immediately noticed pain around my left heel area. Not the same pain as I had before, … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – June 20th, 2016 – Arms/Chest

Man, I hate this ‘figuring new stuff out’ phase of working out. I like to know what I’m going to be doing when I go to the gym so that I can just get down to doing it. As it … …but wait, there’s more! »
