No, I really like my car actually. I'm sure none of you States folk will buy it because they're much cheaper down there for whatever reason (as are most vehicles). It's a very fast car (291HP, AWD, 0-60 in 4.9s) and handles likes it on rails. It's unstoppable with winter tires. Despite all that... I am looking to potentially buy a house and I just don't have the income to keep a $40k car and buy a house. So I'm going to sell and buy something a little more reasonable... or thats the plan anyways if I get anywhere near to what I ask for it.

Friday Jan 29th/2010

BW: 181.8lb

Decline Bench
bar x 8
135lb 2x5
185lb x 3
205lb x 2
225lb 2x5, 1x2

I think I waited too long before my last set and I cooled off. It just felt horribly wrong.

Front Squats
mobility
bar x 5
135lb x 5
165lb x 3
185lb x 1
205lb x 1
225lb x 1
245lb x M
225lb x 1

I *just* about had 245.... damn. I had it moving back up and then I started leaning forward and had to ditch.

Stiff Leg Rack Pull
135lb x 8
225lb x 8
255lb 2x8

HS Jammer
35lb plates x 5
45lb plates x 5
45 + 10 x 8,8

Thoughts

No change since last week's weight. I'm not surprised. I pretty much fell off the wagon last weekend. I hope to do better this weekend and fire up some cardio next week to hopefully reach my goal of sub 180lb before my trip (2.5weeks).

well you can do lots of stuff...just grab a barbell, do five rows, five rdl's, five cleans, five front squats, five military presses, five back squats....stuff like that. then repeat it for a couple sets...and try to keep progressing on it. getting the sets done faster....less rest time...more sets...more reps...yada yada.

on saturday i did some elliptical work, some snatches, and some bw pushups...killed me.

1 minute sprint on the ellip
10 close grip hang snatches with 40 pounds
a little rest
1 minute sprint on ellip
30-40 bw pushups
a little rest
1 minute sprint on ellip
5 close grip hang snatches with 60 pounds
a little rest
30 sec sprint on ellip
30-40 bw pushups

lay down.

The only reason I use the treadmill is because it's handy at the apartment. I don't have to head to the gym to use the weights. I can just walk down to the main floor and get going.

Although that doesn't kind of sound like fun/death.

Well my one roomie and I had a bench in our living room. lol He took it with him though.

I've just been working with what I've got. Which so far has been working so long as I can stick to my diet plan and stay away from the booze. (I only had 3 drinks this weekend and 1 cheat meal!) I think that is going to make this monday workout *much* nicer.

When it gets nicer out I'd like to head over to the soccer field about a block away and do some sprints instead of the T-mill.

Well I kept it in control this weekend and it payed off I think. I think that the only thing letting me continue to make forward progress while in a deficit is by having everything spot on.

That said, it was a tough day.
