[Workout Insight] Sweet Burn, I cannot escape it!

With how much walking I do… It makes me wonder what’s the quantitative distance that I walk. All I can say is that my legs seriously burn around the calves and hamstrings. The burn rate is RIDICULOUS! Well… It’s sorta like my ex boss said… “You are going to be buff, so there’s no issue…” I gotta do some research on that!

Returning to the Lyceum and a Work Out Log Entry!

So I am back in school Monday for my first day of FULL schooling in almost 3 years at a big school and it’s quite a change from the hell that is “thirteenth grade” community college. I must say that the experience has been fun and quite a blast! To meet kind people who know nothing of your past has been spectacular! The campus is bustling with activity and and there is a very vital energy that invigorates the place.

However, my return is not without difficulty… Sure, I do live in the “crappy” dorm alone, but I did not have luck on my side as my dorm does not have a mini-fridge and family feels I can forego needing a microwave. So I have had to be resourceful with my meal plan and make do with it or use my dining cash every now and then for minor snacks when I am burnt out on my stash.

I also restarted my workouts to try to account for the matter that I have been burning intense calories running up and down 9 flights of stairs and walking to classes. Obviously, my legs are strained out so I had to pick another muscle group… Yesterday it was abdominals.

  • 100 reps of crunches
  • 100 reps of cross crunches
  • Done in sets of 20 with a 5 second break in between sets

My abs are burning, however, today… I need to look into doing upper body work. Push-ups, triangle push-ups, and the exhausting decline push ups will probably be the fare of the day after my short sprint to Wal-Mart for calculator batteries.

Expect a post later today with a “furnished” tour of my dorm room… so far, my fans Kimi and Sol have noted that my single room is quite spacious compared to others.

Punishment Game II – Crunches until I could crunch no more.

I let the Avenged Sevenfold single “Warmness of the Soul” play on Suzaku while I did my second punishment game on working out to failure. The full sit-ups were great but the crunches throughly wore me out. The last one I could muster before I just plain couldn’t trudge along anymore were the jack-knife sit-ups. I think the exhaustion from the crunches setting in killed me. I finally was wore the hell out. Tomorrow, I have plans for Punishment Game III and the target will be my arms and chest. My body will hate me, but when the muscle grows even larger, I don’t think they’ll mind me amping up the challenge.

70 full sit-ups, 200 crunches, 40 jack-knife sit-ups

A new day, a new stimuli! If you’re a Family Guy fan… you’ll recognize this dialog from the 6th season

Joe: “C’mon dudes let’s go exercise!”
Quentin: “EXERCISE!!!”
Joe: “YEAH!!!!!”
Parker: “I’m gonna do sit-ups until I poop myself!”

Insomnia Attack: Quick Gut-Buster Session

Well, seems like I couldn’t tire my energy out… so I remembered I didn’t do my short gut-buster session, so I figured why not? It has my abs nice and sore, but nowhere near what I plan to do for tomorrow. I have quite a bit of work to do, as today being the beginning of my IV training, I lose gym time. It’ll be gut-busters for sure tomorrow. Whey protein will probably be my savior and possibly eating a well loaded lunch as well to keep me from going hungry during my IV course.

V-up’s – 2 sets, 10 reps
Jack-knife sit-ups – 2 sets, 10 reps
Crunch-ups – 2 sets, 10 reps.

Workout Log – 4/1/2008

Today, it was a bit of a quick session due to the fact I was running just a tad late and had to do laundry… I managed to do a good round of sets before having to call it quits. It was a short but intense set, though it wouldn’t be until now that I can feel the pectorals, deltoids, and quadriceps hurting from the torn adipose tissue. I am sure the “punishment” will rear it’s ugly head tomorrow. It’s about 11:30pm so I may just work in a gut-buster mini-set before tomorrows festivities. Due to tomorrow’s 12 hours of work and IV training, I won’t have time to hit the gym. I plan to awake tomorrow morning with an intense round of gut-busters and then end the day with another round of gut-busters.

Squats – 40 lbs 3 sets 12 reps.
Lunges – 30 lbs 3 sets 12 reps
Seated Shoulder Press – 30 lbs 2 sets 10 reps.
Dumbbell Bench Press – 25 lbs 3 sets 12 reps
Dumbbell Fly – 25 lbs 3 sets 10 reps

Off Day

Today, I will leave as an off day for my work-out. Tomorrow I plan to hit the gym to do leg based exercises as well as push related exercises. The body is sore but the muscle tissue is growing. I may try to hammer out some articles before bed time tonight so hopefully after work I can get that taken care of. I am very glad to be on whey protein as that’s been helping to expedite my healing. The Crea-Tech Extreme has definitely been helping me push through my sets and power through my days. I am finally seeing shadows of results and it’s a rather inspiring sight. I can only imagine how much that will show up come August.

Due to being at Parkland from damn near 7:30pm – 10am, I have found that I don’t even remember what all I had to eat save for today. I am really more trying to concentrate on eating well for dinner and then hitting the hay super early… I have a long day ahead with tons of territory to cover at the office. I will feed myself more nutritious food and ease up on junk and garbage my body can do with out ’cause my body should be respected like a machine and I need to turn a new page on getting it into seriously fit shape. Expect me back to 100% by tomorrow and doing pull sets.

Workout and Food Log 03/23/2008 – Late Gut-Buster Session and Snacking

So according to my friends I passed out and napped at the office of ZeroXR for a short bit. I think the workout regimen is seriously increasing it’s appetite for fuel. I ended up just making a whole wheat peanut butter and honey. Not to much impact there… (That was around 9:45pm) Almost an hour later, my body craves a snack. I did do my gut buster set before my sandwich, so that should round out my day. I will probably have some Rice Krispies, fresh strawberries, Teddy Grams and bananas as my second snack.
