      Thoughts on Day 18:

      First off apologies for the lack of updates, been focusing on homework vs writing these updates. But will say I've been sticking with the work out and changed it up a bit, started to add planks and side planks for a minute during my night workouts. As for going to the gym I've been sticking to it. Basically doing the same routine but took out and added some new exercises.

      Been a bit lax on my diet but Im gonna get to work on that and make some salads for a few meals. Still been a bit strict on myself about junk food and sweets. Got to get back to work on this comic and start on an animation for class (yay).

      Thoughts on Day 8:

      Starting to include some new exercises to change up my routine. I've been doing a lot of the same exercises for the past 6 months, so its time. I've learned from the past couple years of working out you need to change your routine, because staying with the same routine will create muscle memory and though the exercises will get easier you wont get as strong as you could. So I find myself mixing my workout with some crossfit stuff.

      But still going strong and I'd recommend a youtube channel that I found these last few months that have helped motivate and educate myself on different kinds of exercises https://www.youtube.com/user/TheTigerFitness The guy is a body builder and owns a company called Tiger Fitness which sells suplements along w/ other heath and fitness stuff. I don't use any of it but the CEO Marc Lobliner posts videos of some of his workouts which I've included into my own.

      Anyway enough of me recommending stuff onto food!

      Food and what not on Day 7.

      Breakfast - Oatmeal, banana, and two granola bars

      Thoughts on Day 6:

      Starting to get more intense in my workouts. Both yesterday and today were great. Thinking I may do these every other day update's just cause I don't find is as a chore to post my progress and just summarize what I've been doing. But things are going good, tomorrow I'll be running around like a mad man because its Veterans Day and my shop is doing free oil changes for veterans.

      But other than that not much else to report on.

      Food and what not on Day 5.

      Breakfast - Oatmeal and a chicken sandwich

      Lunch - Footlong meatball marinara from Subway

      Dinner - Lasagna

      no late night snack cause I wasnt feeling like having one

      2 liters of water

      Food on Day 6.

      Breakfast - Oatmeal and a doughnut

      Lunch - Ham & cheese sandwich (all I had time to eat)

      Dinner - Chicken and cheese melt

      Late night snack - Dark chocolate covered pretzels

      2 liters of water


      Workout day 5:

      - Cardio

      15 minute on the elliptical (ran 2 miles)

      - Bench press

      4 sets (3 sets of 10 & last set till failure)

      - weight for each set (includes bar weighing 45lbs) -

      135lbs, 225lbs, 275lbs, and 315lbs

      - Super set (mix of 2 cable cross over exercises but not sure what the first exercises correct name is)

      4 sets of 10

      Going to explain the first half of the set cause I cant find a image or video that shows it.

      Basically you start with your arms as if your about to do a Overhead Cable Curl, but you move your arms forward and rotate your hands so your pinkies/ handles meet infront of you. Before your hands meet your elbows should be at a obtuse angle.

      After 10 reps of that, move on to a Lower Cable Chest Fly and do 10 more reps. Once that's finished, that's 1 set

      - Lying cable bench bicep curls

      4 sets if 10

      Thoughts on Day 4:

      Well forgot to do yesterday's entry.... Work was crazy busy, and was running back and fourth all day. After getting home I ate dinner chilled out for a couple hours and crashed in bed. Basically didn't do the night work out I'll make up for that tonight. As for the diet same as the previous days but for dinner I got a personal sized meat pizza. But today was pretty relaxed had to do some chores and what not.

      Families getting a new washer and dryer tomorrow in the morning, so I've got to get up early and get my workout done. Will do some cardio on the elliptical, as well as some chest and biceps.

      Unfortunately I haven't been able to go full force on my bench press for the past few weeks. Due to my partner (my dad) having to work, me having class at night, and most of the people at the gym in the mornings are older individuals. I wouldn't want to ask them to spot me, just as a precaution so they dont get injured along with myself. So I've just been doing more reps w/ heavier weight vs really heavy weight and less reps.

      But enough about my life on to the diet and workout I've got planned for tonight.


      Food and what not on Day 4.

      Breakfast - Eggs, hash browns, beans and 2 flour tortillas

      Lunch - Footlong ham and swiss from Blimpies

      Dinner - (I was very bad about dinner) Big mac, small fry and a can of coke

      no late night snack cause I was bad about dinner

      1 liter of water


      Night workout:

      - Hanging crunches

      2 sets of 20

      - Pull ups

      2 sets till failure

      - Push ups

      8 sets of 10

      Diamond, regular, wide, and alternating positions

      - Dumbbell biceps curl

      2 sets of 20

      35 lbs

      - Dumbbell shoulder raises

      2 sets of 16

      35lbs

      Thoughts on Day 2:

      So far so good, think I'll start adding some cardio since I'm bad about running. But I do need to start jogging/ running more. Thinking about running a mile and a half, and if its too cold out side I'll head to the gym and do about 20 - 30 minutes on the elliptical. Since I didn't mention my goal for doing this, my goal is to lose some weight. But I'm not expecting to lose a lot since my workouts mostly focus on building muscle. So my wight loss will be slow.

      Food and what not on Day 2.

      Like I mentioned on my entry for yesterday, my diet is basically the same.

      Breakfast - Bowl of Oatmeal and a shredded chicken and cheese burrito.

      Lunch - Ham & cheese sandwich w/ a zip lock bag of chips (ruffles) .

      Dinner - Beef taquitos w/ beens & rice.

      Late night snack - Handful of dark chocolate covered pretzels.

      3 liters of water (through out the day)


      Night workout:

      (Didn't go to the gym cause of school but I increase the amount of exercises that I do before bed)

      - Hanging crunches

      2 sets of 20

      - Pull ups

    • Week 1 - Day 1 Buff Buddies

      Why am I doing this?

      Well I've struggled going to the gym until 2 years ago, my dad and I got the motivation to go to the gym consistently for more then 3 months. We've been going for over 2 years but we've begun to slacked a bit on going to the gym. Due my new work hours and him suffering a shoulder injury that limited his ability to lift heavier weights. So I hope this may motivate me to get him and myself to increase our intensity of our workouts.

      Food and what not on Day 1.

      My diet is pretty much the same, breakfast usually consists of a bowl of oatmeal, and some sort of protein. Today's choice was a shredded chicken & cheese burrito (no sauce or anything else.... I'm kind of a plain eater).

      I work in a automotive repair shop, so when I may or may not be able to eat lunch depending on how busy we are. Today we had a slow period so I ate a ham & cheese sandwich w/ a zip lock bag of chips (ruffles if need to be specific).

      I had a snack after work which was a blueberry figgy bar (I subscribe to naturebox)

      And for dinner I had a barbecue shredded chicken sandwich and more ruffles.

      As a late night snack I'm eating (while writing this journal) a handful of dark chocolate covered pretzels.
