Daily Workout - Back in Home Gym

About a week ago I started cutting down on my food intake a bit. Over the summer I put on a few pounds and unfortunately none of it was muscle!! I'm not talking about a lot of fat but enough that now that I am heading off to Maui in less than a month - I want to get back to a solid 175 pounds. Right now I'm a bit over and I could stand to put just a bit more muscle back on. So for the next 4 weeks I have to stay focused. It's good to have goals and rewards.

  • Elliptical Warmup - 12 minutes
  • Wide Bar Pull Downs (In Front of Head).
  • Narrow Bar Pull Downs (In Front of Head).
  • Standing Bar Rows.
  • Abs: Side Crunches
  • Misc. Stretching

Total workout time: About 1 hour.

Daily Workout - Yard Work & Back at Home

Today I really gave my back a test, I have been putting it off for a while but with or without my bad back I needed to get some work done around the yard and the weather was cooperating for me too.

Unfortunately the yard work that needed doing was the worst kind for the back... Moving dirt from piles to some rather large holes in the ground. We had some trees removed last year and it left some pretty large holes that needed attending to.

It took close to 4 hours and I would guess I moved about 30-40 wheel barrels of dirt, and some of this dirt was more like concrete! A major workout indeed!

I probably burned about 2000 calories moving dirt around my yard but on the other hand I drank about 3 liters of juice. Good thing I water my juice down or I would have drank 2000 calories in beverage, as it stands I probably drank about 1000 calories in juice.

After some more rehydrating, dinner and a bit of a rest I did a quick Back workout in my home gym, I skipped the cardio today, I think a I already got enough in the yard.

  • 4 Hours Moving Dirt!
  • Wide Bar Pull Downs (Behind Head).
  • Narrow Bar Pull Downs (In Front of Head).
  • Seated Rows.
  • Abs: Crunches.
  • Misc. Stretching

Total workout time: About 4.5 hours.

Daily Workout - Back - at Fitness World

I know I said I was going to do my workouts this week with my Total Gym but again I found myself having to do a bank visit, and my bank being right beside the Fitness World that I have a membership at it makes it just to convenient! I was also feeling a bit stir crazy and needed to get out for a workout.

Going to the gym gives me the chance to use some equipment I don't have access to at home so I took advantage of this and used some of their universal gear to doe my Back workout.

  • 10 Minutes Elliptical.
  • Universal Wide Pull Downs x 3 Sets.
  • Universal narrow Pull Downs x 3 Sets.
  • Universal Rows x 3 Sets.
  • Abs: Inclined Sit-ups.
  • Misc. Stretching

Total workout time: About 1 hour.
