^ get unaddicted son

Today just went on a 7.5 mile run, at about a 7:30 min/mile pace. Felt pretty easy, so I know I could have pushed it faster.

Then had a couple of shower beers afterwards

Just went grocery shopping. 1.9 lbs of steak, 3.7 lbs of chicken breast, and 1.5 lbs of snapper. Got some avocados, green beans, apples, pears, jalapenos, carrots and oranges. I'm planning on eating meat, fruits and vegetables exclusively for a week and see how I like it.

I started doing this 15-20 minute calisthenics workout I found online. You do jumping jacks, pushups, squats, and situps. 20 seconds work - 10 seconds rest - 1 minute rest in between each round of 4 exercises. Keep doing it until you're done. It comes out to about 5-8 rounds depending on how long I do it. I'm not in shape at all so I'm not going crazy. It ends up being 100 jumping jacks, 50 pushups, 50 squats, xxx amount of situps depending on how fat I am that day lol Any opinions on this workout? I've been doing it basically every day for the past week and a half except weekends. Should I not do it everyday? I just wanna get myself into shape a little bit using my own body weight.

That'll be alright just to start doing SOMETHING, but once you're even vaguely in shape you could benefit from a much more varied program.

Yarp.

I think I bruised a tendon in my knees from rock climbing, tried to do squats today but something felt off in my knee so I stopped. Gonna take a week off squats and wait for the bruises to subside before squatting again.

Bench today was Bar*20, 135*10, 195*5, 215*5, 235*3, 255*1. Closed with 185*10 and 135*AMRAP. Gonna run this again on Friday with the 255lb single touch and go, then switch to paused next week.

Ate a roughly .4 lb steak with an apple, an orange, and a whole avocado for breakfast. Snacked on some carrots, then had an 8 oz chicken breast for lunch. Ate my coworker's leftover steak which was about another 3 oz then had 8 oz of snapper for dinner. Felt a little hungrier than normal, which isn't surprising. I was planning on having a big salad, but my lettuce was all wilted.

Gym
Squats
135 1x5
225 1x5
245 3x5

Slowly building back my leg strength. They're the exercise that was affected the most by my neck/back injury, and my persistent knee pain is making them tough.

Supersetted some leg extensions with seated ham curls, then did lying leg curls. Burned out calves at the end with some standing calf raises.

I would like to do some unilateral leg work, but my knee hurts like a mother****er doing pretty much anything unilateral.

So this is pretty much a new thing for me. I'm trying a test week of just meats, fruits and vegetables to see how I feel. I've had acne since I was 15 years old, and not even prescription meds have helped with it. I've also been feeling a bit lethargic lately and I feel like my diet has a lot to do with that as well. So basically I'm trying to stick to as basic of a diet as I can and see if it helps and to see if I can maintain it.

I don't really have plans for a "cheat day." My food tastes good since it's all home-cooked high quality fresh food. I don't really like cheat days in general because they tend to turn into a 2-3 day binge for me. I previously have done an IIFYM style diet that also eliminated the need for cheat days because I would save some room in my day for frozen yogurt or something at the end. If I'm somewhere where I have to eat outside my diet plan, I'm not gonna kill myself over it. That's basically my approach to cheat days. I don't schedule them, but if they happen, they happen. I know a lot of people would probably disagree, but it works for me.

I bought a door frame pullup bar and i'm trying to figure out a varying routine (covering upper-body mostly) that I can do at home for the foreseeable future. Sadly as it fits in a door frame some fun stuff like windshield wipers are impossible.

So far i'm doing all the obvious pull-up/chin-up grip variations, working up to the widest grip pull-up by doing negatives. As for other muscle groups I do 'reverse' shrugs and hanging crunches on the bar, and push-up and tricep dips away from the bar. What else could I be doing for a more rounded workout?

I'm currently reading about the monkey, sounds worth a try.

It actually kind of makes sense

Today was my tryouts thing.

Did a 5 mile run immediately followed by a 5 mile ruck with 35 lbs. I did the run in 35:30, just over a 7 minute pace, and then ran the entire 5 mile ruck in 45, so a 9 minute pace. Total time, from start to finish and including the change over time for putting the ruck on and having an energy goo, was 1:22.

I'm pretty happy with that. I slowed my run time down a bit in order to be able to complete the ruck in a good time.

Ugh. Got a fish bone stuck in my throat last night and now my esophagus is all scratched to hell.

Had a quick shoulder day at the gym.

Lateral raises
25 1x8
30 3x8

Shoulder Press:
50 1x8
60 1x8
80 1x5 1x4

Rear delt flys:
25 1x8
30 3x8

Overhead barbell carries
55 lbs 2x1min.

I think shoulders are my least favorite muscles to train.

Training shoulders is boring to me. Is always between squats and deads so it like a choir.


I think I am going to start 5/3/1/ Boring but big on Monday. I need a change up.

I'm feeling like this upcoming week is going to be a variety week. Gonna do lighter weight higher reps, and try to work on some stuff on chest day to get me through my sticking points.
