Fit Report – May 1st, 2017 – 5×5 Workout A

Fit Report – Apr. 28th, 2017 – 5×5 Workout B, Video Edition

Back at it for only my second workout of the week, sadly. Wednesday I got busy with work and ended up with a shortened lunch break, not enough time to hit the gym. I went out and had lunch with … …but wait, there’s more! »

And just like that, we’re back into the territory of personal bests. So glad I manually deloaded the squats last week instead of letting the app do it. It means that I can give my legs a break and still … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – Apr. 21st, 2017 – 5×5 Workout B

Today was meant to be my third attempt at 215 lbs on squats. I knew going into the workout that I was going to fail it and have to deload (my legs are just that tired), so I cut out … …but wait, there’s more! »

Good thing I had all that extra time from the long weekend to rest my legs. Wouldn’t want to fail a set… Oh wait, I just did. Yup, even with 5 days off from the gym and three off from … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report / Weekly Weigh-In – Mar. 2nd/3rd, 2017 – 5×5 Workout B/Cardio Day

Well, I guess I’m not as big a boy as I thought/hoped I was. In more ways than one. Turns out my body thinks there’s a massive difference between 220 lbs and 225 lbs, because I couldn’t complete a single … …but wait, there’s more! »

Awwww yeah! Another new personal best! Yup, that’s right. I managed to do a complete five sets of five squats at 220 lbs today. And you know what that means. Next time, big boy weights. Seriously, though. Today was probably … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – Dec. 14th, 2016 – 5×5 Workout A

Back to the gym today for Workout A. Worth noting that this is the 30th time I’ve done workout A. That’s a lot of lifting. I don’t think my running is really affecting my strength training at all, but damn … …but wait, there’s more! »

So close. So damn close. Turns out I was going for not one, not two, but three personal bests in today’s workout. When I realized this, I wanted it so bad. I was even writing the opening paragraph of this blog post … …but wait, there’s more! »
