Haha, well...we have 3, I think. The third one is just tiny. It's a rip off...I get more out of the gym than I do out of the classroom. I like to tell myself that I'm spending $1500 a year on the gym and $500 a year on classes. The Spanish department is a joke and only about a third of the upper level IS courses are worth going to. C'est la vie. I guess living in a town that's less than a mile long has its advantages...it's never taken me 30 minutes to get to the gym.

Front squats - 4X6 165
Weighted lunges (DB) - 4X15 45
Calve raises - 4X15 90
Ab stuff

I did weighted lunges for the first time today. And it's only...the second or third time I've ever done front squats, but it's the first time I've done them in +5 years. I hate both of them...it will give me something to look forward to though. I want to get better at both of them. There was a guy next to me working out that gave me some tips for front squats..it helped a lot. Tuesdays will probably be my favorite day until I can get better at these two exercises that I hate so much. I'm going out to the track tomorrow to do 400m sprints. THAT will be interesting...hopefully I can keep all of them around 1:10 or less...but I doubt it.

Front squats and me do not agree...or at least not last time I tried them. Ugh.

Pull ups - 4X5
Shrugs - 4X8 205
CH Bench - 4X8 135
Straight Bar Curls - 2X8 85, 2X8 75

Great workout...I loved it. Light upper day. I'm doing exercises that I haven't done in a long time and I'm hitting a lot of under developed muscles. I kind of feel like it's my first time in the gym again. I know my strength will go up pretty quickly with this program because of it. Target for pull ups was 4X8, but it was my first time ever doing pull ups and it turns out that I am heavy. Or weak. I'm going to say heavy. Shoulder gave me problems with the pull ups. I need to do more rehab. It feels like it's going to come out of place at the very bottom of the repetition...it actually semi did between sets of CH bench. I normally do 85lbs on my straight bar curls, but the CH Bench and pull ups taxed my biceps more than I anticipated. I did shrugs with the straight barbell behind me and could feel a better isolation. Great workout, good form...really happy.

Deadlifts - WU, 5X3 305
Leg press - 4X6 290
Calve Raises - 4X15 200

Body weight - 163

Nice easy workout. I did calve raises on the leg press machine..it was a little different. Right now I plan on going up on squats & dead lifts 10lbs every time I do them since I'm alternating each week. I started light this week and everything felt terrific. No problems with dead lifts today. I will have to add much more to leg press. Looking forward to Monday...

Incline Bench - 4X6 160
T-Bar Rows - 4X6 100
DB Bench Press - 4X6 70
Dips - 4X10

Body weight - 164

I need to start doing cardio again. I've been slack assed the past two weeks. Too much work/school/school work... I went heavy-ish today. My workout buddy wasn't there and I didn't feel like looking for people to spot me on everything... I just backed off the weight a bit, concentrated more on form and slowed down the reps. I was super tired when I finished. I didn't get my pre workout drink.

Front Squats - 2X6 175, 2X8 135
Weighted lunges - 1X10 40
Calve Raises - 4X15 90

Crappy workout...went out to eat with a girl before the workout...good for me, bad for the workout. Front squats sucked...my form is still fucked up. Got some tips from one of my buddies that was working out also. His biggest advice: Take most of the weight off and just work on your form...so that helped. Lunges still feel very unnatural.
