"But you promised!"

My apologies for a lack of blog entries since prior to Christmas. What can I say, laziness dies hard. BUT... I still worked out. Time to get back on the blogging track, here's today's:

Warmup, 3 sets of 5 reps, w/45lb bar
* Overhead Squat
* Squat
* Good Morning
* Barbell Lunge
* Romanian Deadlift
* Bent-Over Row

Workout, supersets of 2
* Dumbbell Alternating Lunge, 45lb dumbbells, 3 sets of 6
* Dumbbell Squat, 45lb dumbbells, 3 sets of 6
* Incline Dumbbell Fly, 35lb dumbbells, 3 sets of 6
* Incline Dumbbell Press, 35lb dumbbells, 3 sets of 6
* Rear Lateral Raise, 30lb dumbbells, 3 sets of 6
* Bent-over Row, 90lbs on curl bar, 3 sets of 6
25 minutes, 147 calories burned

I got a new heart rate monitor, and it seems to not only be a lot more accurate, but has lots of good features as well. The best part is it was only $19.99 + $5 shipping, a clearance on While it's only reading half the calories burned that the other one did, it takes a reading all during the workout. The Mio one I had would only take a reading occasionally when you'd put your finger on the sensors.

Tomorrow we'll see how well it performs while jogging. I do know the strap is much more comfortable than the Polar one.
