Fehu Uruz
 
This is my new log. It will begin by the 1st of June, sooner if I can get into the doc and be approved to train at work before then. Its title comes from two runes in the ancient Norse alphabet, these are the modern F and U. Aside from the obvious modern context of these letters they represent energy, foresight, creation/destruction (becoming) and physical strength and speed, untamed potential to my Viking ancestors. My plan is simple, I will train at work since I have my child on my days off and she has to be my priority so my workouts then will be walking with her on my shoulders to the park and playing with her.
To that end, my routine will basically be like this:
Wednesdays that I work - Bench (all 3 grip variations), weighted dips, press downs and ab wheel
or
Wednesdays that I have off - Elevated pushups (all 3 hand placements), seated dips, DB triceps extensions, and ab wheel

Thursdays - Deadlift (alternating between standard, deficit, and rack pulls from week to week), leg curls, calf presses, and cable crunches

Fridays Overhead presses (military, BTN, and/or clean n press), pull-ups (weighted as much as possible), curls, and shrugs, and ab wheel

Saturdays Squats, leg curls, calf presses, and cable crunches

Im glad to be coming back and am really happy that I am now living MY life. Stay tuned.

I was a little surprised at how well I kept up. I can't wait to actually move some weight again.

27 May 11 - Gymless Upper Body
 
Grade: A
Time: 30 min

Notes: I only did 3 exercises, but one of them was my latest invention which I call the Arnold Hammer! Curl n presses with a twist a hammer curl into an Arnold press. I only have 20 lb dumbbells, which felt really light at first, but got much heavier as I went. Tomorrow I start work late so I am going to see about deadlifting before my shift, should be fun.

Semi-paleo, avoiding grains and soy but I am using natural peanut butter and chilli w/beans occasionally.

I have been on Paleo for 80% of the time over the last 3 months. Hard to stay on it 100% for me at times, but it's been working well for strength.
