  • The Intensity Climbs

    I do believe my testosterone level has jumped up a notch. Must be the raw meat I've been gnawing on between workouts. LOL.

    Seriously though, the high you get from the endorphin release coupled with the spectacular ability to wear clothing a size smaller than you're used to and the ability to look down and see your feet and other parts of your anatomy can be pretty heady. Throw in a couple of “Wow, you look great!” comments from some friends you run into and you are ready to make the workouts an every day affair.

    Today I started with the abs, V-ups, Bicycles, and Situps, a total of 250 movements, and went in to grab the weights. I went from Shrugs to Curls to Shoulder Flyes, pausing half as long between sets as I took to complete the set, then moved to legs, beginning with Squats, then Calf Raises, then Leg extensions. After completing three sets of Seated Rows, I humped out three sets of Bench Presses with close grip, and they felt very good. Finished it off with the Gazelle to ACDC for about 12 minutes, and the heart rate was well above 128. Not bad for an old guy, eh?

    Got a few more things I want to complete before I get back to working on my Bible interpretation (Romans 13 is proving a bit more challenging than I first thought), so this will be a short entry today. I hope you have given some thought to my comments yesterday about meals and portions. As much as the dedication to the workout, the dedication to reducing your calories is paramount to achieving your fitness goals.

    I hope you are having a blessed and powerful day.
