Well no-joy on the max Deadlift today as I failed at 365 lbs. which was only 15 lbs. more than my last max. I’m just too burned out from the last 5 weeks. I overreached by trying to jump right into the Westside program’s Dynamic and Max Effort work while maintain the same intensity with my Repetition (Bodybuilding) work . . . lesson learned.

On the bright side at least I Deadlifted heavy today and sure feel it. Only 30 minutes out from my workout and I’m already sore from my ankles to the base of my skull and all I want to do right now is crawl in bed and take a nap. Yup, that’s heavy Deadlifting for ya.

One thing I sure can say from doing Westside for a month is that I have learned one hell of a lot about how to powerlift better. Now it’s just a matter of stepping back and easing into the program so it’s sustainable and slowly build my tolerance to the higher intensity.

Well here are the results of my first year of lifting. The results of the cycle were the following. The first number is the change in the last 6 week cycle and the number in () is the change since 12 months ago.

Bench Press +5 lbs. (+120 lbs.)
Squat +5 lbs. (+220 lbs.)
Deadlift no change (+215 lbs.)
Body Weight 172 lbs. +2 lbs. (+23 lbs.)
BF % 13 +.5% (+5%)
Chest 42 +.75” (+5.5”)
Upper Arms (relaxed/flexed) 12.75”/14.75” +.25”/+.25” (+1.25”)
Lower Arms (relaxed/flexed) 11.25”/11.75” +.25”/+.25” (+1”)
Neck 16” +.5” (1.5”)
Thighs 23” +.5” (+2) – This is very close to my theoretical genetic maximum, all that hill running I guess.
Calves 14.25” no change (+.5”)
Hips 38” +1” (+2”)
Shoulders 48” +.75” (+3.5”)
Waist 31.5 no change (+3.5”)

I just started a new cycle today with an awesome workout.

Okay, I've been horrible for quite a while, eating crap (or stuff that tastes good, however you want to define it) and not really exercising. New Year, blah blah blah, and with our hospital moving to a new health plan, we're being insistently pushed toward health screenings. As in, if we don't do the screening, we automatically pay $50 more per pay period (every two weeks), if memory serves. My screening is scheduled for February 6th, so I have a month to make myself pretty. That's also my best friend's birthday, so it would be a nice birthday present to her to not be an eyesore for once. Ha ha.

In any case, I bought a couple of Kinect games, so we'll see if I can get into either of those. Just Dance 3 and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012. I was actually pretty happy with how lean and tight I was getting with Dance Dance Revolution, so here's hoping I can get to that same feeling with this new software. The great thing about Kinect is that I'm not wearing out a dance pad. Replacement costs add up if you play regularly.

I also think I need to run more. I'm really impressed with how trim and toned one of my high school classmates is looking now, and she simply added running (albeit to a consciousness of what she's eating). I just bought a SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip 8 GB to replace my Clip+ 2 GB, since I'm passing that one on to my friend, Cari, who is without an MP3 player at the moment. I also got a pair of Koss PortaPro headphones, and I think they'll be fine for running. They seem to sit comfortably and sound decent.

I have no real goals beyond feeling better and seeing an improvement in my physique. Hopefully that translates to looking better on paper, too.

I just checked out Your Shape - that's very cool! I'll be interested to hear how you like it. I remember when you were trimming down so quickly with DDR.

After learning about Cross-Training here I got interested in really juicing up my workout by doing interval training, and I was told to check out BodyRock.tv. I've been working on the 550-Rep-Massacre for just under a month, alternating it in with other workouts. It is killer! But so fast. Time yesterday was 22:51. Turns out a lot of men I know watch her workouts . . . haven't met one who actually does them yet, though! http://www.bodyrock.tv/2010/11/19/550-rep-fat-massacre/ if you want a killer workout!!
