    Default Eaton's journal

    I've been reading others journals for a long time now, and have always said "I need to start one of those." I take my Ipad to the gym with me every time I go, and keep a journal. The reason I want to start a journal online, is I think it would hold me accountable for working out. I wouldn't want to start one, then not update it for a month or two. It would make me look like a fool. And... I think that is what has been holding me back from starting one.

    I work a two week work schedule. I work 12 hour days, and 7 out of 14 days. I drive an hour each way to work. My gym doesn't open in time for me to work out on work days, and I really don't feel like it when working my days. So, the days I work, will be considered my rest days. I understand that is a lot of rest days, but I don't sit in front of a computer either. I am up all day, with a very physical job.

    Well, here we go....

    Measurments:
    6'3"
    230lb.
    Biceps: R-16.5" L-15.5"
    Forearms: R-13.75" L-13"
    Chest: 45.5"
    Waist: 38.25"
    Quads: R-26" L-26.5"
    Calves: R-16.5" L-16.5

    Goal:
    I would like to be able to look back in a couple months, 6 months, even a year from now, and be able to see a noticeable difference in the weights that I'm lifting.

    03-23-12

    Day 1: Quads/Hams/Calves
    Barbell Squat: 95lb x 10. 115lb x 10. 135lb x 6.
    Hack Squat: 50lb x 10. 70lb x 8.
    Leg extension: 60lb x 15. 70lb x 20. 90lb x 20.
    Standing leg curl: 25lb x 20. 30lb x 20. 35lb x 20 (Single Leg)
    Lying leg curl: 60lb x 20. 70lb x 20. 90lb x 15.
    Lying single leg curl: 30lb x 20. 40lb x 15. 50lb x 15.
    Seated calf raise: 90lb x 20. 140lb x 20. 190lb x 20.
    Standing calf raise: 100lb x 20. 125lb x 20.

    Not to bad for a first day.

    Nice good choice starting a log, hope you see the results you want. Are you a cop or something? Just curious from the work schedule and handle.

    A few things...

    1) Great choice in starting an online journal, lots of support here, but I guess you know that already since you have been lurking for a while.

    2) Cops are largely under appreciated (assuming that said cops are honest ones, lol), and way under paid.

    3) The nerve of you, being a cop who is not out of shape and hanging out in a doughnut shop


    Lots of luck, hope you reach your goals. Looks like a tough work schedule.

    Back from the work, and back to the grind.

    Chest and Biceps:
    Barbell bench press: 95lb x 20. 115lb x 18. 135lb x 10.
    Barbell incline bench press: 95lb x 9. 95lb x 7. 95lb x 11.
    Decline barbell bench press: 95lb x 17. 95lb 15. 95lb x 11.
    Standing cable crossover: 50lb x 16. 62.5lb x 13.
    Barbell curl: 55lb x 20. 65lb x 12. 65lb x 19.
    One arm dumbbell preacher curl: 20lb x 12. 20lb x 20. 25lb x 20.
    Hammer curl: 25lb x 15. 30lb x 13. 30lb x 12.

    Still have a lot of work do to in the chest area. Is there an alternative that some of you have for standard bench, incline, and decline other than barbell? I don't work out with anyone else, and I hate lifting bench by myself. It's kinda hard getting motivated to lift heavy, when I don't have a spotter.

    Nice workout Officer. I personally don't have any alternatives other than chest dips/weighted chest dips instead of decline press. WRT not having a spotter, if you lift in a cage/power rack, and utilize the safety bars, there is no need for a spotter. I workout alone, at home, in my power rack, and nothing stops me from pushing super hard. If I fail, I let the weight come down to the safety bars.

    Vin, I've always had a bad attitude toward the smith machine. But... I guess if I'm not reaching my full potential on standard bench, I could try some in there, and see how I do. Thank you sir.

    If you don't have access to a rack or cage, I would not use a Smith Machine, just stick with what you are doing. Smith machine does not replicate the body's natural movements.

    Day 5

    Starting off, I want to say that God has blessed me beyond belief, by giving me the wife that He has chosen. My bride had surgery this morning, and still insisted that I go to the gym to stay on track. My wife is doing well now, and recovering on the couch with her ipad and netflix movies. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers with her recovery. Thank you everyone.

    04-23-12
    Barbell Squat: 115lb x 14. 135lb x 10. 165lb x 7.
    Hack squat: 90lb x 10. 14lb x 6.
    Leg extension: 70lb x 22. 90lb x 20. 120lb x 20.
    Standing leg curl: 35lb x 20. 50lb x 15. 50lb x 10.
    Lying leg curl: 70lb x 20. 90lb x 20. 110lb x 8.
    Lying single leg curl: 40lb x 12. 40lb x 20. 50lb x 10.
    Seated calf raise: 90lb x 20. 140lb x 20. 140lb x 20.
    Standing calf raise: 100lb x 20. 125lb x 20. 125lb x 20.

    Now, not the greatest in the world, but if you refer to my first workout, which was the same as this one, just eleven days ago, much better.

    Eleven days ago:

    03-23-12

    Day 1: Quads/Hams/Calves
    Barbell Squat: 95lb x 10. 115lb x 10. 135lb x 6.
    Hack Squat: 50lb x 10. 70lb x 8.
    Leg extension: 60lb x 15. 70lb x 20. 90lb x 20.
    Standing leg curl: 25lb x 20. 30lb x 20. 35lb x 20 (Single Leg)
    Lying leg curl: 60lb x 20. 70lb x 20. 90lb x 15.
    Lying single leg curl: 30lb x 20. 40lb x 15. 50lb x 15.
    Seated calf raise: 90lb x 20. 140lb x 20. 190lb x 20.
    Standing calf raise: 100lb x 20. 125lb x 20.


    Total weight lifted in my last weight was 28,495lb. Today's weight was 33,805. Difference of 5310. This might mean nothing in the long run, just thought it was pretty neat.

    Kind of a lazy day, but the wife was wanting me to hurry up with the workout today. She is feeling much better from the surgery, and wanting to go shopping (big surprise). Off to North Point Mall, and then to Cheesecake factory for her birthday. I'll be back at it tomorrow morning, and hope to feel a little more motivated. Have a good Friday, and enjoy your weekend.

    Well, I was going to try and switch it up a little bit... I was going to throw some upper body into the mix today since I haven't worked out for a few days, and I'm going into a three day work weekend. I was working out really well, then the stomach ache came. I thought I was going to throw up. Finished the lower body portion, then came back to the house.

    I've been having this stomach problem here lately while working out, but nothing this bad. I have two scoops of NO-Xplode and two teaspoons of creatine mixed with water before working out, and lots of water while working out. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Here's today's workout
    04-12-12:
    Leg press: 180lb x 20. 270lb x 20. 360lb x 18.
    Plate lunge: BW x 1 lap
    Single leg extension: 50lb x 20. 60lb x 20. 60lb x 20.
    Leg extension: 70lb x 20. 90lb x 20. 110lb x 20.
    Standing leg curl: 25lb x 20. 50lb x 16. 50lb x 14.
    Lying leg curl: 70lb x 20. 80lb x 20. 90lb x 16.
    Seated calf raise: 90lb x 20. 180lb x 20. 180lb x 20.
    Standing calf raise: 100lb x 20. 125lb x 20.

    If you have any suggestions on my workout routine that I've been doing so far, please let me know. And if you have some suggestions on the whole stomach thing, those are more than welcome! Thanks, and have a great weekend.....I'll be stuck at work....
