Cardio: 20 min a HIIT

Great cardio session despite the people who were messing around in the gym behind me, usually this annoys me because I take the gym extremely serious, but in a good mood and getting a good sweat wasn't going to let anyone ruin that.

I can describe this back workout with one word, "intense". I was completely drained by time I left the gym, but I know that I need to exhibit this level of intensity on my problem areas. Besides that been eating like a horse today, calorie intake a little higher than usual because of this workout.

Yesterday I ended up taking the day off, Sunday spent most of the day on the road, snow in the Sierras made for a very long road trip. Wrestling match went alright, still a little rusty from the layoff. My bicep workout didn't have the usual volume, but I thought I'd switch it up a little today, tris were fried by the end. Tomorrow I'll hit up legs, still brewing up a workout, probably some good volume tomorrow, I've been craving it all week.

Wrestling match.....any more news? Was this another tryout for the WWE farm system?

No, this was just for an independent promotion in California, I'm still carrying around some ring rust from the 3 yr layoff. I really need to see where my heart is at, soon I'll have to make the decision to quit or put my all into it like I've done in the gym. I think the major difference is I now have a family something I never had to factor in before. But definitely something I'm praying about, which I'll go wherever God may lead me.

Great chest workout, felt good getting back into the gym after having that stomach bug. I use to hate chest days because of the many limitations due to my surgically repaired shoulder. Today I can say that I have little if any limitations, my strength is increasing every workout. Once again today I implemented fascial stretching I feel I got a real good one in today. Tomorrow it's time to attack the other problem area my back. My problem areas are without a doubt becoming my favorite workouts now, I really try to push myself beyond what I previously thought I was capable of. Becoming mentally stronger everyday, I refuse to quit now.

Saturdays at my gym are loaded with people you never see during the week. I don't know how many people I witnessed doing a hyperextension improperly, I had to turn away because I was afraid they were going to injure their back. This workout went decent, but definitely could of gone better. Only able to get cardio done once this weekend, being sick earlier in the week really set me behind in my studies, I've been working on a paper this weekend among other things. Hopefully this next week isn't as hectic, something I'll have to pray for.

Arms were cooked after this one, I'm going to set aside a day within the next couple weeks with the goal of fascial stretching on the biceps and triceps. The stretch I got last Friday on my chest was great it's already looking fuller. On a side note I have some major DOMS in my legs today, I felt like someone was playing a practical joke on me because I had to climb the stairs at work far too often.

Another great chest workout, since that fascial stretching last Friday I can actually notice I'm starting to develop my upper chest which feels awesome. This has always been a problem area, as far as my other problem area goes I noticed that my lats are becoming noticable from the front which has me psyched, now that I can see results that pumps me to work that much harder. They're going to have to start wheeling me out of the gym on a stretcher. I feel good, feel like I'll be ready for competition next summer.
