50 normal press-ups straight off; brief rest, then 2 sets of 15 raised feet wide; 2 sets of 10 narrow arms. 2 mins of "plank", then leg raises. This is a gentle day. Do weights every other day. Walk everywhere lugging bags (no "wheelie" suitcases etc).

Decided to do something end of July cos I was getting to be a fat bastard working 12 hours a day in front of computer (working from home if not out at clients) then eating and drinking too much. So, through tough diet and hard work and no drinking in the period, I have gone from 15 stone to 12 stone 5 lb in two and half months (210lb to 173 lb, Yanks) but put on muscle, so it's looking GOOD!

Congratulations. If you don't already, try working pull-ups/chin-ups in. You'll fall in love with with them after you get your first 5. Nothing makes me feel more bass ass than busting out a bunch of pull ups in front of my wife.

The last exercise was the power clean. I should say I tried to power clean. I spent over an hour trying to work on it and just couldn't do one very well. I think my arms are too long.

One of the cornerstones of the program I'm on is squatting every time you workout. You haven't really lived until you've experienced glute spasms.

I'm in my fourth week of starting strength and man do I feel it. The last workout ended with dead lifts and weighted pull up. The program calls for more eating to keep the lifts going up and to aid in recovery. I'm not used to that and part of me is anxious about gaining weight. But hey, progressing on my lifts is very rewarding.

3 days weekly, every other day, with alternate full body routines:, a, b, a ; b, a, b built around the primary movements. Today's primary movements are deadlift, bench press, pull up. The other is squat, overhead press, dips. Deadlift day is my favorite. Squat, not so much. I need to work more on mobility and flexibility. Jogging should resume once temperatures are regularly above freezing.

The wife and I got out the old console games-- original x-box and wii.

Yes, we've exercised to Wii Dance (just dance) for about 45 minutes at a time--- getting the cardio going again after the holidays in prep for softball season.

Deadlift Monday.

I do not look forward to doing it at all. It's hard. But, I always feel like a million bucks when its over.

Deadlift day today. This is the last day of this cycle so I'll be trying for a true 15 rep max. I'll be sucking air.

This morning started with back squats. Gotta change it up with weight going up. I have a bad back. Gonna try to learn front squat movement this week.

I have completed every programmed workout that I've started so far this year. I have wholly skipped a few here and there but if I started it, I finished it, even if I felt sick. Even if it took me 2.5 hours to get through. Even if past midnight. Goals!

Bicycled for 1/2 hour yesterday morning. It was nice and cool after the previous night's big storm. Got 2 -1/2 inches of rain. More than I think we got in all of last year
