31st of January, 2014 — Workout — Wide Grip Pullups & Let Me In’s, Let Me In’s ( With Pause ) & Let Me Up’s, Let Me Up’s & Let Me In’s ( Palms Up )

MY CONVICTS!

Another day in paradise for you folks right? I’m just psyched because ITS RING TIMEEE. We’re having a heat wave up north and its a whopping 38 DEGREES out right now. I’m absolutely working out in shorts and a tank top because I will get too hot and you dont want to be overheating while working out right?

Awesome workout though. My biceps and back are on fire! Guess that makes sense though because those are the muscles that are supposed to be getting the most workout right? 🙂

My buddies birthday so I’m off to make sure nobody dies tonight.

STAY STRONG!

26th of January, 2014 — Workout — Wide Grip Pushups & Shove Off’s, Military Presses & Thumbs Up, Close Grip Pushups & Dips

ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLEEEE!?!?!?

Week’s five and six are up on us … meaning its the POWER BLOCK! 

We’re rocking the Supersets for the next two weeks boys and girls. Let me tell you, I’m very glad that it’s not a leg day today because I went snowboarding for the first time in around 7 years and wrecked myself pretty good. Smashed up the ol’ knees, and had hamstring cramps while on the lifts. I bet it was funny looking to people behind us because I was squirming so much and trying to straighten out my leg to get the cramp to stop!

Anyway, I like the Supersets. Incase you’ve forgotten what they entail, let me refresh your grey matter:

  • Four minute interval for each set
  • One-Five reps for the first exercise, Six – Twelve for the second ( I’m going with Five, and Ten )
  • Two sets
  • First exercise is down with a slow three second negative, followed by an explosive concentric

Thats the basic’s of it, and I’m pumped up for it. I just really like to do Pushups & Dips though, so that will help. I’m going to try and do Three sets, but we’ll see how that goes 😉

STAY STRONG!

24th of January, 2014 — Workout — Wide Grip Pushups, Military Press, Close Grip Pushups, Dips, Leg Lifts, Supermans, Bicycles, & Hyperextensions

CONVICTS!

Going to crank out two days worth of work today BECAUSE I CAN! I also took the full package of pre-workout that came as a sample with my protein powder. Didnt realize it was two servings … whatever. Just super itchy today!

Was a fantastic workout today, I felt like one day a week for the pushing exercises was a bit weak, especially because ten reps isnt really a challenge … I’m psyched for the Power Block next week. I’ll be even more psyched once I can get my RING ROUTINE BACk! ( Yes I’m still a bit pumped up even after my workout )

I will say that those Hyperextensions at the end were rough. I had to dig down and persevere to get those last three reps, with good form of course.

How’re you all doing with your workouts? Until next time convicts!

STAY STRONG!

21st of January, 2014 — Workout — Bulgarian Split Squats, Side Lunges, Sandbag Squats & One-Leg Romanian Deadlifts!

TIME TO GET THOSE LEGS WORKING!

I know how much you all love leg day as much as I. It takes a certain person to be able to put themselves through all this much fun day to day though, and I know you all have the characteristics of champions.

I’m going to try and do all the workouts today with the sandbag on my shoulders ( Except the Side Lunges ) HERE WE GO!!

Holy hell, you wouldnt think 70lbs of sand would be able to wreck my legs like that. I almost fell over in the shower washing my legs! Damn … A good one today that’s for sure. Those Bulgarian Split Squats with the sand are no joke. I feel like they’re on par, or a bit harder than the Alternating Back Lunges. It’s almost the same motion, but something about the leg elevated seems to make it a bit harder. What do you think?

I love the feeling after doing a leg workout though. My entire body has this fantastic ache about it. With that, I’ll leave all you fine folks to finish up your workouts. I’ve a bison shoulder roast and mad veggies to consume 🙂

STAY STRONG!
