    Re: Daily exercise log

    I hate sounding like a broken record, so I haven't posted in a while, though I have been running daily, lifting not so consistently.

    I got a new Fitbit. My last one died a few years ago. The design wasn't meant for everyday over more than a year. That was evident when the case cracked and pulled apart.

    I saw an ad for a Versa 2 and bought it. I've had it 7 days now. It makes a big difference in my enthusiasm level. Which I'm not proud of because it's more or less like a rat hitting the feeder bar. LOL But it's much more convenient than writing in a journal. Plus I can track my sleep.

    I do feel more inspired to improve my running time and distance. I had a couple 4 mile runs this week and I'm keeping below, at or near my goal of 3 miles in 30 minutes.

    Re: Daily exercise log

    Today did a standard, easy quick routine & will do other single exercises the rest of the day off & on

    Ran 25 minutes, one round on heavy bag to Bas Rutens All round fighting CD and 65 standard push-ups in a row - last 5 were tough, I usually can only do 50 or 60 but pushed five more

    Later will do some abs - V-ups, Russian twists with weight, some Turkish get-ups & pull-ups & other whatever else seems good at the time

    I have been doing approximately five miles/three times a week on a stationary bike since the New Year. I have the bike positioned so I can exercise while watching television. Last night, I had a burst of energy and did ten miles. I sit on my butt in an office all day, so an exercise routine is important for me to be healthy. When the weather is nice, my husband and I sometimes do ten to twenty miles stretches.

    Ran for the first time in over a month. (Foot pain had me limping. No idea what I did).

    Foot was pinging the whole time and has been aching since, but I managed it. Whatever it is, it'll heal. My foot needs to stop bitching.

    Re: Daily exercise log

    Upped the weight on a number of exercises. At least one goal may be finally in sight...

    Weighted Dips: was strapping 150 lb around my wait for the first 9 sets (two rep sets, so near max), then 125lb for the next 9-12 sets. Now, 170lb and 135lb. I weigh around 200 on the rare occasion I check, so....combined weight of 370ish. Wish I could bench instead (a bit less strain on shoulders) but there's no way my wife could spot and why get a gym membership when I can just go down to my basement?

    I want dip sets at a combined weight of 400lb.



    Deadlifts inching up (not combined weight)
    Sets 1-4: 305lb
    Sets 4-8: 300lb
    Sets 8-12: 295lb
    Sets 12-16: 290 lb.

    I kind of ignored legs other than running/hiking for 8 years so.....yeah...they kind of fell behind. Fixing that.

    I want sets at 500lb. That'll take a few years I suspect.

    Re: Daily exercise log

    Why on Earth did I insist on trying overhand grip for deadlifts when I resumed? On a lark, I switched to the old over/under grip I used when I was a kid. Instantly doubled the reps I could do, and at higher weight. (With both hands over, your fingers are doing an awful lot of work holding onto the bar. I'd bought a bunch of various strength hand grip things to address this, but ugh...what was the point? I'll still use them but overhand is pointlessly more difficult).

    Re: Daily exercise log

    I have never seen this thread!

    Every morning I wake up at 5:02 am. I am a bit of a prime number, kinda guy.

    5 is prime
    2 is prime
    add 5 with 2 and 7 is a prime
    subtract 2 from 5 and 3 is a prime

    THEN... I walk aggressively for about an hour around the village... we have only four streets so I see the same people every morning that are dedicated like I am.

    Then... I finish close to my house where there is a hill that takes about 23 seconds to run/sprint up. I run that hill at least 7 times. Again... Primes.. I am 48 (not a prime so I can't wait for next year when 13 is a prime) ... so maybe it took less when I was younger but I was a state level (CA) track runner in high school so I do pretty damn good at my age. I then walk home and do another 30 minutes of light weights, easy push-ups, crunches and up/downs... all in all a little less than two hours and then I head off to work.

    Re: Daily exercise log

    Im almost back to my 3 mile run shape on my treadmill. Took me 35 minutes, but hey, its progress. Im afraid to go swimming since it might clog my sinuses and leave me vulnerable to the virus... or is this just silly paranoia?
