Getting into the habit of cardio, even those times (like tonight), when I positively absolutely don't want to go. Despite that, intensity and stamina is increasing very much. Spent 20 mins tonight on a speed I used to do only in minute increments, 10 minutes at my old high-average speed, and one good sprint. Hopefully this will start having a considerable impact on my ability to sleep, and my metabolism (DIE FAT DIE). I rest for a while and then make some delicious seared salmon and steamed broccoli.

Insomnia has been getting worse despite exercise...just trying to keep it going. Actually hit the treadmill for the first time in over 6 months the other day. Wasn't too hard but hurt my stabilizers in my abs and lower back, still sore days later. Probably not the best idea for my lower back at this time. Just gonna keep to the bike for metabolism and fitness.



Small but drawn out lazy home bicep workout.
1x20x25 Hammer
3x15x25
2x12x25
1x20x15 Curl

Apparently my legs stayed in better condition than I expected. The cardio must have helped quite a bit. Some lower back discomfort when I took it above 500, so I kept it light tonight. Some time again before I move for 1k I think. Oh well, metabolism is the goal for now.

1x8x450+

Leg Curl
4x12x120

Not fully sure what I lifted today, usually I have a better head for my lifting numbers even if it was from the day before with no notes. Oh well. Cut very short due to my own schedule, and my gym partners.

5-6x8x150 Seated Row
2x12x190 Seated Dips Machine
4x10x255 Seated Dips Machine

This last week has been great getting back into exercise. I've hit up the gym 6/7 days, though 5 of these were cardio just getting myself active, healthy, and working towards conditioning and metabolism. I'll be hitting a leg day tomorrow (after following a terrible terrible potluck of cookies and donuts!) and my back and arms Wednesday. Just because of my gym attendance my diet has gotten loads better, and other than generally feeling better, I'm hoping to see some good results soon.

To comment on my last post lol...it was not worth it. It tore one of my calves minorly and took weeks to heal because I wouldn't let up long enough for it to heal quickly.

To update, though, I'm finally back in the gym lifting normally after 6 months or so as I've dedicated my exercise to the martial arts (taekwondo), as well as due to some hand injuries, and so don't lift often with my legs in order to keep them primed for my time in the do jang. However, I've taken 3 weeks off and I'm hitting the weights hard for strength and endurance, and piling on HIIT cardio until I get back to the academy in another 2 weeks. Today was my first leg lifting session in those many months for the most part. I'm still in good shape, but **** I'm not used to weight bearing exercises other than lifting some one off the ground with a kick! Looking forward to the results from this cycle of lifting. Today was mostly just weight range finding and getting my feet wet once more after a couple weeks of being sick and recovering from competition.


Leg Extensions:
1x150x8
2x8x160

Leg Curl
3x6x150

Adductor
3x15x190 (Machine is maxed, can't get lower rep ranges)

Abductor
3x6x140

Calve Raises
1x20x230
1x25x250


These were all completed in a circuit fashion. Next time volume and weight increases, with warmup and cool down sets of higher volume (15-20reps).
