For all those ladies who are worried about flabby arms.
Have I got an exercise for you.
Get one of those manual yarn ball winders.
The muscles in my back are sore, my shoulder is sore,between my shoulder blades are sore.
Other wise walked 14.4 miles last week total.
Just over 2 miles today.
But it's a start.

Strength day. I've decided to change my routine a little bit. I'll do big compound lifts every 4 days, and do smaller isolation lifts in between, so the schedule might look like this -
Monday, big lifts
Wednesday, isolation lifts
Friday, big lifts
Sunday, isolation lifts
Tuesday, big lifts
Thursday, isolation lifts

And so on, and so forth.

Hopefully this will add strength to some of my smaller muscles like triceps and shoulders that are lagging behind and causing me to fail at the bigger lifts.

Today, lateral delt raise x4
Rear delt flyes x3
Front delt raise x3
Skullcrushers x3
EZ bar curls x3
Shrugs x3
Concentration hammer curls x3
Tricep pushdowns x3
Pec flyes x3
Preacher curl machine x2
Tricep extension machine x2

Went to gym to do my big compound movement lifts today. Got through 4 sets of Romanian deadlifts and started to feel a little off. Did one set of bench press and I knew I was done for the day. I'm not a young kid anymore, no reason to push it. I'll hit it hard tomorrow...

Still walking with and without dumb bell.
Been averaging about 2 miles a day.
Did some lifts today.
Had to unload groceries.
Had to do some squats too.
Dropped some Sweet Potatoes 3 pound bag.
You don't need fancy equipment.
Just use groceries.
Just having fun with you Spikedriver.

Ok, so I've been a terrible slacker...haven't been in the gym for a week. Well, I got back today. Time to lift a little:

Romanian deadlift x4
Bench press x3
Leg press x3
Military press x3
Rear delt flyes x3

I'm getting burned out a little bit. After 3 or 4 lifts I'm ready to be done. Not sure what to do about that. Time to find a way to adjust...

Ballet stretches
Deep knee bends almost to deep squats, but not quite.
Orange band stretches for my arm(it's still weak).
And yes I know I didn't get hurt in 3 weeks.
I know it will take longer than 3 weeks to heal.

I typically do have music during my workouts. I have a little JBL bluetooth speaker I take to the gym. But when there's others there, it would be rude to start blasting my music.

Burnout is pretty normal. I'll just try to keep at it. Even lifting weights once a week will lead to gains in strength, just a lot slower than 2 or three times a week.

Did some exercise band work in the hotel room tonight. Triceps extension, triceps kickback, curls, chest press, rows, and lateral delt raises. Nothing too strenuous, just trying to keep the muscles moving...
