Today's workout: carrying 15 cases of beer bottles down two flights of stairs. Tomorrow's workout: carrying 10 cases of beer *up* two flights of stairs.

B/f had to go to work today, so while I've got the apartment to myself, I'm having a mega-workout. I usually prefer "do it all at once" type exercises like pushups and squats, but today, I'm doing some dumbbell lifting.

- 10 minutes of stretching
- tricep extension (behind the head type): 3 sets of 9-10 each arm
- bicep curls: 3 sets of 8-10
- anterior delt raise thingies (arms straight out to the side): 3 sets of 6 or 7 - these didn't feel right; my shoulders kept popping. I'll probably find a different exercise for next time.
- weighted side bends: 10 each side (a little too easy; more weight next time)

Moving on to some pilates-style ab exercises from this site:

- Frog, but only 10 seconds, 3 reps. Man, these are brutal !
- Scarlet O'Hara (since I obviously need work!): 4 reps

Ugh!

Squats with a 12 lb backpack: 3 sets of 10
Backpack calf raises: 3 sets of 8 (this burns!)

Phew!

Kris, try the Flying X - but be sure you don't need to be able to do much walking / running / or climbing the following day. These hurt.

The fitness challenge is over in the "Buddies / Countown / Challenges" forum "Let's Get Fit Together"

Hi Nat! Thanks for poppin' by!

"Kris, try the Flying X..."

Can't - just got my belly button pierced.

--

Today, my w/o is a bit of a mish-mash of everything that isn't still sore from Saturday. I'm working the opposites of what muscles I worked two days ago.

Warm-up: 15 minute brisk walk. It's hard to call it a "warm up" when it's this cold outside! (Where's spring? )

- lunges: three sets of 20 (10 on each side)
- reverse calf raises (for the 'shin' muscle): 2 sets of 10, 9 on the last set
- straight-back-and-leg deadlift: 2 sets of 11, 9 on the last set
- shrugs: a set of 11, then 7, then 6. Wow , these are harder than they look!!
- Arnold press: 3 sets of 11
- Rear lateral raises (sitting, leaning forward): a set of 10, then 9, then 8 (man, these burned! )
- wrist curls: 3 sets of 10 for each wrist

Cool down: 10 minutes of stretching

Wow, everything is just *slightly* sore. Just enough to remind me *what* I've done and *why*.

Today's exercise: cardio. I'll be carrying a 15-lb backpack to work later and I'll take the scenic route if it's not too cold outside.

Yesterday (Wednesday) I was still fairly sore, so I took the day off. I had to work all day, too, so...

- 10 min very quiet "don't wake the sleeping b/f" loosening/stretching
- tricep extensions: 3 sets: 12, 10, 10
- bicep curls: 3 sets: 12, 12, 12 (too easy - need heavier dumbbells)
- *side lateral raises: 3 sets: 10, 8, 10 (ow!)
- *front lateral raises: 3 sets: 10, 9, 7
- reverse wrist curls: 3 sets: 10, 9, 9 (the cysts on my wrists make this tough. )
- **oblique side raises: 3 sets of 10
- calf raises: 3 sets: 10, 7, 8 (ow!)

I'll leave the upper leg work for another day; my quads and hams still hurt a little.

* = heavier weight, dumbbell inside big shoes
** = heavier weight, 12-lb backpack

Hi Richard! I posted in your journal.

Sunday is hangover day , so my walk to work was my exercise for the day. Goal for tomorrow: wake up early enough to get in a good LBWO.

Barely got my w/o in this morning - I was really tired. The alarm (radio) was going off for 15 minutes before it woke me up. I hit the snooze button a few times.

Anyway, LBWO:
squats: 3 sets: 12, 11, 10
reverse calf raises: 3 sets of 10
lunges: a set of 10; my thighs were already whooped from the squats

Upper body WO today.

lateral raises: 3 sets of 10
bicep curls: 3 sets of 10
tricep extensions: 3 sets of 10 (single arm)
wrist curls: 3 sets of 10
front raises (ant. delt): 3 sets of 10
rear lat raises: 3 sets of 10

...plus a 20 min walk earlier today.

I just did 3 sets of 10 for everything, because my weights are too light. Gotta get 5 pounders. I had shoved the weights into a pair of heavy shoes, but I like the shoes and I don't want them to stretch out any more.

I slowed it down for the shoulder work, to make it a little more difficult. Obviously still a good w/o, since my arms feel like jello.

...so maybe I'll take a hike up to the mall on payday.
