CHALLENGE CHECK-IN - Week 5 - Repeat

Wednesday, April 11, 2018



I gotta admit... I DID NOT WANT TO EXERCISE TODAY!

I almost had myself convinced that I could take another Day of Rest.

Just woke up feeling really tired and sore... more MENTALLY unmotivated than anything to move my butt... lol!

BUT... I WON!

I defeated those negative lazy voices in my head, found the above image and set out to do what I intended to do.



And... GUESS WHAT?!?

I had a kick butt workout!!!



And we can still KICK BUTT!!!

Rahhhhhhh!

On another note... TAJONES and I decided to repeat Week 5 again. No harm in that... just not quite ready to take on Week 6.

I may even repeat it again and change columns... not sure yet. We will see.

But felt pretty good once I got moving... for the most part... :)

So today's numbers... down from Week 5 Day 3... BUT... up from previous Week 5 Day 1!

Sit Ups - 182
Push Ups - 111
Squats - 219
Dips - 66

    I think I had a Aha moment last night. I was just so amazed with what you and I have accomplished so far.

    My arms are still a little sore. It's my crazy over zealous triceps at work.

    Here's my Six Week Progress (with 5th week being repeated):

    Sit Ups

    Wk 1 Day 1 = 12
    Wk 1 Day 2 = 20
    Wk 1 Day 3 = 30
    Wk 2 Day 1 = 35
    Wk 2 Day 2 = 40
    Wk 2 Day 3 = 45
    Wk 3 Day 1 = 50
    Wk 3 Day 2 = 70
    Wk 3 Day 3 = 75
    Wk 4 Day 1 = 85
    Wk 4 Day 2 = 100
    Wk 4 Day 3 = 105
    Wk 5 Day 1 = 110
    Wk 5 Day 2 = 140
    Wk 5 Day 3 = 165
    Wk 5 Day 1 = 130 (Repeat)
    Wk 5 Day 2 = 155 (Repeat)
    Wk 5 Day 3 = 165 (Repeat)

    Push Ups (Modified/Knees)

    Wk 1 Day 1 = 12
    Wk 1 Day 2 = 30
    Wk 1 Day 3 = 40

    Wk 2 Day 2 = 55
    Wk 2 Day 3 = 60
    Wk 3 Day 1 = 65
    Wk 3 Day 2 = 75

    Wk 4 Day 3 = 140
    Wk 5 Day 1 = 160
    Wk 5 Day 2 = 160
    Wk 5 Day 3 = 200
    Wk 5 Day 1 = 200 (Repeat)
    Wk 5 Day 2 = 250 (Repeat)
    Wk 5 Day 3 = 250 (Repeat)

    Triceps Dips with Bent Knees

    Test Run = 20
    Wk 1 Day 1 = 25
    Wk 1 Day 2 = 60
    Wk 1 Day 3 = 60

    Calf Raises
    Test Run = 40

    One Leg Floor Bridge
    Test Run = 40 (20 right leg/20 left leg)

    I am glad we are repeating Week 5! I think I need to let my muscles get a little stronger before I advance.

    Tomorrow is the beginning of a new week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Repeat of Week 5... da da da DONEEEEEE!!!!! Woot!

    Feeling stronger!

    Woke up to a tweaked knee... had me quite concerned... not sure why... and it was fine throughout the weekend. Did not like going down the stairs or just walking... felt it as soon as I got out of bed... so I performed my sets very cautiously... a little tender... BUT... I did it with no major concern... so that is good.

    Single Leg Bridges... STILL SUCK... but already feeling stronger. Still can barely lift my butt off the floor, but a little more controlled and quality of movement slightly improved. Able to punch out a few more, too... PROGRESS!!!!

    Beginning of my workout was slow and my brain was not in the game, but that changed about half way through... rahhh!

    emoticon

    So this Week's progress of repeating Week 5...

    Sit Ups
    Wk 1 Day 3 - 211
    Wk 1 Day 3 - 254 (Repeat) +43 from prior attempt
    Push Ups
    Wk 1 Day 3 - 135
    Wk 1 Day 3 - 136 (Repeat) +a WHOLE ONE... hahaha
    Squats
    Wk 1 Day 3 - 233
    Wk 1 Day 3 - 248 (Repeat) +15... I'll take it
    Dips - 78
    Calf Raises - 130
    One Leg Floor Bridge - 48

    *******
    ***All last set consecutive numbers allow me to move to week 6... but I am going to move up a column instead!

    I’m sure you’ll get your butt off the ground higher than me!! Once we complete our sit ups portion, I want to start over with reverse crunches... :)))) gotta keep going!! This is working!

    Woohoo! Way to go! And yay for repeating Week 5 and upping a column!! Kicking butt, even if your triceps got a little over zealous... hahaha! Live and learn... ;p. And awesome! Glad you’re joining me on calf raises and bridges... rahhhh!!!

  • TAJONES57
    I made sure this time that I am posting on the correct feed...lol!!!

    emoticon You really did Kick Butt Today!!!

    I am really impressed you adding Calf Raises and One Leg Floor Bridges. I googled both. I am planning on joining you. But not today. emoticon I am going to wait till tomorrow to find out if I can lift my butt and lower back off the floor!

    emoticon I had a good workout today! I can tell that I am getting stronger, but I do not want to advance too fast. I agree with you about one more week 5 and going up a column. Now that we adding more to our workout, the extra week will give our bodies time to adjust.

    So here's today and prior weeks progress:

    Sit Ups

    Wk 1 Day 1 = 12
    Wk 1 Day 2 = 20
    Wk 1 Day 3 = 30
    Wk 2 Day 1 = 35
    Wk 2 Day 2 = 40
    Wk 2 Day 3 = 45
    Wk 3 Day 1 = 50
    Wk 3 Day 2 = 70
    Wk 3 Day 3 = 75
    Wk 4 Day 1 = 85
    Wk 4 Day 2 = 100
    Wk 4 Day 3 = 105
    Wk 5 Day 1 = 110
    Wk 5 Day 2 = 140
    Wk 5 Day 3 = 165
    Wk 5 Day 1 = 130 (Repeat)
    Wk 5 Day 2 = 155 (Repeat)

    Push Ups (Modified/Knees)

    Wk 1 Day 1 = 12
    Wk 1 Day 2 = 30
    Wk 1 Day 3 = 40
    Wk 2 Day 1 = 50
    Wk 2 Day 2 = 55
    Wk 2 Day 3 = 60
    Wk 3 Day 1 = 65
    Wk 3 Day 2 = 75
    Wk 3 Day 3 = 80
    Wk 4 Day 1 = 95
    Wk 4 Day 2 = 100
    Wk 4 Day 3 = 105
    Wk 5 Day 1= 110
    Wk 5 Day 2 = 115
    Wk 5 Day 3 = 120
    Wk 5 Day 1 = 105 (Repeat)
    Wk 5 Day 2 = 115 (Repeat)

    Squats

    Wk 1 Day 1 = 40
    Wk 1 Day 2 = 40
    Wk 1 Day 3 = 60
    Wk 2 Day 1 = 60
    Wk 2 Day 2 = 80
    Wk 2 Day 3 = 80
    Wk 3 Day 1 = 80
    Wk 3 Day 2 = 80
    Wk 3 Day 3 = 100
    Wk 4 Day 1 = 100
    Wk 4 Day 2 = 100
    Wk 4 Day 3 = 140
    Wk 5 Day 1 = 160
    Wk 5 Day 2 = 160
    Wk 5 Day 3 = 200
    Wk 5 Day 1 = 200 (Repeat)
    Wk 5 Day 2 = 250 (Repeat)

    Triceps Dips with Bent Knees

    Wk 5 Day 3 = 20
    Wk 5 Day 1 = 25 (Repeat)
    Wk 5 Day 2 = 60

    I seem to be going a little backwards in my Sit Ups and Push Ups. Notice how my Triceps jumped from 25 to 60. That may explain why it may seem like I am going backwards.

    Looking forward to my 2 days of rest!!!

    Enjoy your 2 days of rest!!!

    Alright!

    Great workout TAJONES! Thanks for the motivation in the other feed... I know, this is kinda confusing... lol!!!

    Sooo... I was feeling a little adventurous and spent most of the morning checking out strength training moves to target my butt and legs.

    GOT COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED and felt almost DEFEATED... lol.

    BUT... then I remembered babysteps.

    Give yourself a chance to learn one new move and focus on that for a while... and so that I did.

    Kinda...

    So... I've incorporated simple CALF RAISES into my sequence... nothing new really... just new to my sequence.

    I do them just before I do Wall Push Ups... no biggie, easy enough to do, and any progress is progress. I am not following any set increment of numbers, just going until it burns and than shooting to beat last time's/week's numbers. Should work... :)

    My legs need much love... emoticon

    I'm also doing the same for ONE LEG FLOOR BRIDGES.

    THIS is NEW to me! Suppose to target my BUTT!!! emoticon

    It needs much love too... lol!!! emoticon

    And the hamstrings I would think... which is good too!!!

    And oh Dear Lord do I suck! I can barely lift my butt and lower back off the ground... BUT... that will change! I'm determined.

    Shoot... I was going to insert an image, but this isn't a blog, it's a comment... ha!!!

    Well... google one leg floor bridge images and you'll see.

    JOIN ME TAJONES!!! emoticon

    I am doing this right before I do my crunches!

    And speaking of crunches! Totally kicked butt!!!

    emoticon

    Was absent mindly adding more reps to my sets and honestly could have kept going, but I clued in and didn't want to overdo it... so THAT IS GOOD!!!!

    emoticon

    So Week 5 Day 2 - Repeat's +PLUS new addition numbers are...

    Sit Ups - 205
    Push Ups - 122
    Squats - 232

    Think I will do one more week of week 5 but go up a column.

    What do you think TAJONES?!?

    I gotta admit that when I came home tonight, I was having a battle in my mind. To exercise or not exercise.

    I had all these reasons not to exercise, but the desire to not give in to those reasons won!

    Here are today's numbers:
    -105 Push Ups
    -130 Push Ups
    -200 Squats
    -25 Tricep Dips

    It's a good feeling to have completed today's Challenge! It's a good feeling to see how you and I are progressing!
