Days 250-248

Friday April 26th- Day 250

Rest Day (Worked from 3pm-3am anyway)

Saturday April 27th- Day 249

Ran 5.0 miles

Slept until 11ish, woke up got Sierra ready for her Chapter Championships, RAN, came home, showered and off to Jersey for Logan’s Region 7, competition. He was one of the top 3 in the State (Age group/level) to make the PA State All Star Team! Last competition of the season!

Which he did well in considering there was PA, NJ, DE, VA, WV, MA and NY representing with their best of the best. 4th for Vault, which was a shock since that was our weakness all year long- AND he got a heel contusion a week out.  9th on Pbars and 10th on Floor. IN THE REGION! So, I can’t complain and he was tickled. We also won 1st place as a team! Woot! The boys each got a nice gold medal and a big canvas sign.

Sunday April 28th- Day 248

Ran 5.0 miles (which I’m shocked I did, but it was a nice day and I felt  good)

So this is where you will shake your head at me. I’m thinking of doing Wendlers 5/3/1 program.  I bought his e-book and have been reading it. The only part I don’t like is the math. Since, I’m math illiterate, it may take me a while to get the hang of it. Today I tried to figure out my 1rm on the overhead press and I probably messed it up, I did it wrong as well as missing my warm up sets. I will start again tomorrow, so my workout is a little weird today. Pay no mind to it.

Overhead Press- 5@30lbs, 5@40lbs, 6@50lbs  (I should have had 3 warm up sets in here at lower %’s) AGAIN, still figuring the %’s out.

Shrugs- 3×15 @30lbs

DB Rows- 3×12@30lbs

Tri Dips-5×10 with my body weight

The last 3 were assistive exercises. The big lifts are the core of the workout. I will be doing 3/4 days with the big lifts being overhead press, benchpress, deadlift, and squat (all have their assistive on those days as well). I’m sure you will see some not hot looking workouts until I figure it out. This is  NOT a ripped in 30 days program, it  progresses with a deloading week at the end of each cycle.

If your interested, just look up Wendler 5/3/1. It’s more of a powerlifting program vs a bodybuilding program BUT, you can variate it to your liking, as long as you keep the basic premise. I, personally am not so much into powerlifting, but I like the fact that it is geared towards long-term gains vs short-term quick fixes. It will keep my interest longer I think.

Off to work tonight Different hours the last couple days, all in the name of the kid and their sports.

  1. CONGTATS T LOGAN AND TEAM!!! How did Sierra do??

    Very cool that you are trying programs out. I tend to go by the seat of my pants and just hope that I balance things out. I’ve never been good at following any program for anything. Not sure why

    • Hi! Sierra did well as well! Her team came in 2nd. There are some politics involved with that whole thing, pisses me off to no end. They only compete with Salisbury, so they either come in first or 2nd and they have never (wait, maybe one time) beat Salisbury, BUT, the head judge is ALSO one of the coaches for Salisbury. Favortism much? Anyway, we leave for Wildwood on Thursday for Championships. Just her and I, so we are excited!

      I need someone to tell me what I need to do with lifting. Running not so much, I fly with that, but something like lifting I do better with a routine. Don’t know why..lol

      • Ughhhhhh politics I HATE that! Good luck and enjoy Wildwood! Mother and daughter time will be AWESOME!

        OH don’t get me wrong I have to have routine, it’s just usually of my making. I’ve never really worried about what muscle groups I’m hitting or if I’m doing enough exercise for each muscle group. I throw a bunch of stuff together, consider it a full body workout and make changes depending on progress through out time. Sometimes I wonder what kind of results I’d have if I actually did some reading on lifting and branched out. Routine is good!

      • Thanks!

        Whatever I end up doing it is long term and has to be sustainable..kwim!? So I need to be realistic and take it a day at a time.
