Day 10 of 84

Today was an off day. I did my morning yoga and then shoveled the snow from yesterday. So there is my 30 minutes of activity. In the evening I played Wii Golf with CG (my wife).

I finally got to my 180 g of protein and over 3,000 calories. A lot of eating of good food. A lot of eggs and milk.

Default YOGA on WII

Hello There Andrew,

Do you recommend the Yoga on Wii? I just got Wii and was considering buying this program with the balance board. Anyway good luck in TC 7 and I 'll be supporting and watching to see how you do.

Take Care,

AC

Why fight with swords? Actually they are wooden sticks (rebated blades is what they called them in the middle ages) so it is a blunt contact sport. The swords are a minimum 1 1/4 inch diameter rattan. The reason is it is a fun sport that allows one to dress up in armour and test your skill against others. It has the one-on-one martial aspect of boxing without the injuries and also in melees (3 to 1000 people per side) it has the group fun of rugby etc. I have always had an interest in the Middle Ages and the Knightly class so this combines those interests into a modern sport with many fun social aspects. I met my wife while attending a large fighting event in PA. She was living in CA at the time.
Hey Andrew, that sounds like a lot of fun. It's always nice to have a hobby you truly enjoy.

I think it comes down to whether you need some guidance and accountability to do your yoga. If you think need those items then it is worth the $100.
Personally I would not have bought it for myself rather I got it for my wife. Since I have it I now use it and it has expanded my yoga routine.

Day 11 of 84

I did the usual morning yoga. I really need to change my program. I will check with CG on that.

Late this afternoon we went to the Y. L, my 3 yo, had her swim lesson. Knowing I had a finite window and considering CB’s advice on going hard and fast I hit my work-out hard. Doing my best to keep my rests in accordance to the guidelines. It was a hard work-out. I am still struggling with chin-ups which annoys me. 6 months ago I could do 9 now I struggle with 2 or 3. Pathetic. Well here is what I did.

Workout B
• Warm-up Circuit

Warm-up Superset
1A) DB Incline Press – 6 reps using 66% of the weight you will use in real sets (2-0-1)
8 @ 40
1B) Barbell Row – 6 reps using 66% of the weight you will use in real sets (2-0-1)
8 @ 60

Superset #1
1A) DB Incline Press – 8 reps (2-0-1) 8 @ 60, 60, 65
1B) Barbell Row – 10 reps (2-0-1) 2 x 8 @ 90, 90, 90
• Rest 1 minute before repeating the superset 2 more times.

Superset #2
2A) Chin-up – 12 reps (2-0-1) Two sets,
I goofed and did three sets. First time I did two reps and then 10 lowering only reps. Surprised by lack of strength in my chin-ups. The second two sets were just lowering phase, 12 the first time and 8 the third time.
2B) DB Chest Press – 8 reps (3-0-1) 2 x 8, 7, 7 @ 60

Superset #3
3A) DB Fly – 10 reps (2-0-1) 12 @ 15, 15, 17.5
3B) DB Rear Deltoid Raise – 10 reps (2-0-1) 10 @ 15, 12 @ 15, 10 @ 1.57
Rest 1 minute before repeating
Stretch at the end.
The complete work-out took 44 minutes.

In the first two supersets no rest between exercises and one minute rest between supersets for 3 supersets per series.

Superset #1
1A) DB 1-Arm Shoulder Press – 8 reps (2-0-1) 3x 8 @ 45
1B) Pull-up – 10 reps (2-0-1) 3 x Did 1 and then the lowering phase for 9 more
Superset #2
2A) Barbell Curl – 8 reps (3-0-1) 8 @ 60, 70, 70
2B) DB Triceps Extension – 8 reps (3-0-1) 3 x 8 @ 35,

Superset #3 Ran out of time
3A) DB Curl – 5 reps using a weight you can do 8 times (1-0-1)
3B) E-Z Bar Triceps Extension – 5 reps using a weight you can do 8 times (2-0-1)

Today was an off day. I did my Wii Fit Yoga again. I have skipped it on lifting days as I needed rest to get over my cold.

Day 16 of 84

I unfortunately lost strength in the fall being at my strongest in July 2009. I have gone back to my notes from then and noted my Personal Bests (PB) at that time. I am now pushing myself to match or improve on those before the end of this session on 22 February. Today I did a BP and matched a previous one. In other areas especially chin-ups I am way behind. I did 12 at one point and now I can only do 3 or 4 in one set.

TT for Meatheads Workout B
Warm-up Circuit

All supersets three times through. No rest between exercises, one minute rest after each superset.

Warm-up Superset
1A) DB Incline Press 6 reps using 66% of the weight you will use in real sets (2-0-1)
8 @ 40
1B) Barbell Row 6 reps using 66% of the weight you will use in real sets (2-0-1)
12 @ 66, 10 @ 65, 8 @ 65 (BP)

Superset #1
1A) DB Incline Press 8 reps (2-0-1) 8 @ 60, 60, 65
1B) Barbell Row 10 reps (2-0-1) 3 x 8 @ 100,

Superset #2
2A) Chin-up 12 reps (2-0-1) See below
2B) DB Chest Press 8 reps (3-0-1) 3 x 8 @ 60

I am struggling with chin-ups. So I used the counter balance weight to try something different than just the lowering phase. Below is the set with the number of reps with the weight on the machine. The higher the number the less work that I am doing as the counter balance is helping. So here is how it went;
First set 3 @ 0, 2 @ 25, 40, 55, 70, 85
Second Set 2 @ 25, 2 @ 40, 4 @ 55 (got off to let someone else get on)
Third Set 8 @ 55

Superset #3
3A) DB Fly 10 reps (2-0-1) 12 @ 17.5, 17.5, 20
3B) DB Rear Deltoid Raise 10 reps (2-0-1) 10 @ 17.5, 10 @ 17.5, 10 @ 20

Stretch at the end
