1st full week

I got through the first forty fairly easy. I know a lot more about what I'll have to do and I will progress in speed once my lifting kicks in.

I've been doing my cardio lifts in the mornings. I've been working a double cycle workout, 6 lift-cycle then right after that with a 15 second rest straight into a 7 lift.

As soon as I'm done with the two cycles I drop into a set of 50 pushups.

I don't use the jack3d for these. I'll only use that when I head to the gym.

I put in another 6 & 7 cycle set plus 25 pushups in 3:36. I've got it time via a song on the computer.

I feel great, and will be heading to work shortly.

After I got home I pushed on for a 2nd cycle session of a 7 & 8 set. I didn't time myself but I think I got it done in about 4 minutes.

I will be so damn sore tomorrow.

I pushed myself to as close to failure on the circuits as I deemed safe today.

I did a set of 8 & 10, I went through the two new sets in under 5 minutes.

I noticed that I had a slight cramp on the right abdomen, and some asthma like symptoms from heavy exertion.

I plan on trying to find my true failure on the circuits monday if my body is up to it, by doing a 10 & 12.

today was a crap day at work, nothing really went right...I kept finding ways to get yelled at when doing nothing wrong.

I went through two very heavy circuits toinght two 12's at 80lbs. I was getting used to the circuits and found that I was struggling just to get the last 3-6 lifts in per lift on the 2nd cycle.

Tonight I did what would take 4 cycles to do last year. I don't necessarily feel twice as strong right now but eventually I'll be going 2-4 times as hard on my cardio than I did in the past.

I worked on some yoga for a short time, some stair streching, and wall stretches. I tried something interesting with the wall I emulated a push-kick to the head and held the heel flat against the wall for 3x15 seconds with each leg. And did the same with the lateral height like a side kick to the face/head. And I did 3x30 second wall splits.

I guess I have not posted for two weeks now.

Right after my last post I decided to hit my upper body hard.
I have been doing two a days four days a week of 15, 20,25,30,35, 40 reps per day when my shoulders and biceps are not throbbing.

I have been hitting single arm curls and bent over row. One arm curl then row then onto the next arm as quick as I can pull the lift off. I am working just as hard on this mini circuit as my main one.

I want to see what sort of gains I will see when I go back to my main circuit drill after two more weeks of this. If I continue at the rate i am going I could potentially do more than sixty lifts per lift on each hand!

I finally hit 60 reps thursday afternoon of this past week.

I am working on getting acclimated to my new training toy an "elevation mask"

I have done a 6 & 7 rep circuit drill on my traditional lift cycle.

I did the 6 friday and the 7 today.

So far I have found a 7-rep cycle in conjunction with the mask is my limit for right now.

cardio hell

I did 3-cycles today with the mask, a 6 this morning and was spent.

After work I pushed myself beyond what I thought was safe and did a 7 & 8 set cycle. Between the 2 I took a 90 second rest.

I have been using a protein powder and I'm taking in about 2/3 of my weight for several days now.

I maintained the lifts friday through today, I pushed through the fatigue of 3 8's per day.

I did 5 sets of 2-minute bas rutten boxing drills with my mask yesterday and today.

I was able to get through the 2 minute but not a 3 minute round just yet.

the 60 or 90 second break between the rounds was enough to get my wind back.

I am resting till thursday due to muscle fatigue then will hit the boxing drill until I cannot hold my hands up.

I am hoping that is a full workout +

if I do this I will be sore for a hell of a long time, both in the back and core. I can feel a lot in my core and the muscles associated with hand-strikes.
