Weight Workout

Geez. I started to type "I can't believe", but I can believe it. I gained 4 pounds this weekend, and that's on top of the 3 pounds I was already up. So this morning I was 167.4. It shouldn't come as any surprise, I ate like a pig this weekend. Not only did I eat too much, but too much bad stuff as well.

It was fun though. So now it's back on track, both in the name of health, and the fact that Christmas is coming! I don't plan on going crazy on Christmas Day though.

Anyway, today was my first day back to the gym after our little Monterey excursion. We're also now into regular workouts, as opposed to prep work, so things have changed a bit. Here we go.

Warmup, w/45lb bar
* Overhead Squat
* Squat
* Good Morning
* Barbell Lunge
* Romanian Deadlift
* Bent-over Row

Workout, sets to failure
* Incline Dumbell Press, 6x5x35lbs
* Neutral Grip Dumbell Row, 6x5x35lbs
* Scaption, 8x5x20lbs
* Incline Lower Trap Raise, 12x5x15lbs

40 minutes, 204 calories burned.

What's changed is the number of exercises (4 instead of 6-8), and number of sets (I do sets until I can't do any more).

Running tomorrow.

Ouch! Sounds like you have some work ahead to get that weight back off.
