Re: reon's log

Welcome reon, I think we are about the same level. Some guys have started here in pretty good shape and others have come in at the bottom like us and have made amazing progress. Check out volleyball man's log for one example. The couch to 5k program seems pretty good and I will be starting that (or ...

Re: MonkeyBoy's Log

Week 3 L1D1: The problem about using the table for body rows is that it is hard to clamber under it out out of it quickly for this day. I think that for next week I will do a bunch of rows, flip over to do pullups and go back and forth. Then I'll do a bunch of squats. I think that keeps it in the sp...

Re: MonkeyBoy's Log

Thanks. The good news is that I can now exercise in the house and it is a bit warmer than the garage. Plus, I am finding body rows to be good exercise. Week2: L1D3 (Saturday) Used the table for body rows. I know my progress is not all that interesting but I will keep posting here as it gives me some...

Re: MonkeyBoy's Log

Week 2: L1D2 Did 3 sets and then my pull-up bar broke. No injuries. Finished up the other sets of push-ups and squats. I was planning on getting a new pull-up bar anyway as this one was in the doorway and thus did not let me get a wide grip and caused me to bang my elbows. It looks like the kitchen ...

Re: MonkeyBoy's Log

Thanks for the welcome cheapo.

L1D3: Well the good news is that I have stuck to it through one week. Since I had to do negatives (30 of them), it took quite a bit of time. Pushups were okay and squats were easy. On to next week.

Re: MonkeyBoy's Log

L1D2 Did the workout. Didn't worry about time as I went through it pretty quickly. Added a set of tire deadlifts and crunches to each set because I have some back problems and am hoping to get some core stabilization.
