    Daily exercise log

    i thought that logging daily exercise might make for a fun thread. I have done this on another site since 2010 or so, and it helps me to maintain a healthy weight and to hold myself accountable. i might post a little more about my own weight loss story in this thread from time to time. if there's a good response to this, i'll sticky it.

    today : took a half hour walk in my hometown. later, i'll be packing up and doing some stair climbing.

    While I don’t have a formal exercise program, I will say my time arguing politics is directly proportional to the level of sunshine and temperature out of doors.

    Congrats on the weight loss, that’s a big deal.

    thank you. 2005 and 2007 were my big years for weight loss. when i quit smoking in 2008, i felt like i could fly. those were all good decisions.

    Weights today:


    The routine is split into two circuits. After a quick warmup, the idea is to move from one exercise to the next with no rest, except perhaps 10-20 seconds after completing one circuit. I go through each circuit 3 times in a normal workout. However, I've started alternating where I do 6 passes through the first on one day, then 6 through the second on the next.

    Circuit 1

    Curls (alternating two-handed curl bar and individual dumbells in each pass): Reps to failure at high weight immediately followed by reps to failure at low weight.
    Single-handed row, braced against bench
    Standing shoulder fly Reps to failure at high weight immediately followed by reps to failure at low weight.
    Weighted dips

    Circuit 2

    Skullcrushers (two-hand curl bar)
    Flys (which apparently may also be a contributor to shoulder pain. I may rethink that and dips. But I don't have room for a full olypmic bench and there's no way my wife could spot for me).
    Reverse-flys
    Weighted dips
    horizontal pullups, aka, resting heels on bench w/ back facing floor (basement ceiling too low for a stand, and the door frame down there sucks so I can't use one of those clamp-on things).


    Sometimes: rep conditioning

    Quick alternation of dips (take ten pounds off per set until unweighted, then a few more sets) and pull-ups, sometimes going past not being able to do any more dips, switching to push-ups, then continuing until I can only complete one. (Takes a while).

    Just finished my 1 AM run on my treadmill. 3 miles in 30 minutes. Its nice to do it late at night when everybody is asleep so nobody bothers me. Now for a soak in the tub and off to read before bed.

    Re: Daily exercise log

    Oh! I love this idea!

    Today: A little over 40 minute run on the treadmill, 3.2 miles. (I did 50 minutes yesterday so I cut it off at 40 today.)

    5.4 mile run in light rain. Refreshing, actually. Though there are a few spots along the circuit where I have to watch out for cars hitting puddles....

    Did 30 minutes of HIIT running (9 intervals).

    Re: Daily exercise log

    I like this thread idea.
    Could be a good motivational tool.
    Weights for me on Monday, heavy day (relatively speaking...I'm an old fart), so 2 minutes between sets : Deadlifts 3 sets, chinups 3 sets, bench presses 3 sets, lunges 3 sets, dumbbell curls 3 sets.

    Corrupt, Cartoonish, Creepy, Crazy, Clueless, Comical, Cretinous, Cloddish are all good options.
