Diary Archive Plan

Today is the second last day of the Month.  Next Month I will put this diary in an Archive format and save it on another disk so it doesn’t get lost.


I did my workout about 2:15 pm and finished at 3:15 pm so I did a one-hour workout.

After the workout I went out and talked to Denim about this girl that works in his Gym.  I can’t remember her name but he said she was about 18 years old and for me he was going to ask her what school she went to.  I will find out the response on Monday when I go to train the Chest.  I really have seen her somewhere before.  I just can’t put my finger on it.  Or maybe she just looks like someone I knew before, but I do know that she is hot and beautiful and sexy and all that!

Gym Routine

Warm-Up: For my warm up I jumped on the Bike for 5 minutes and for the last 30 seconds on the Bike I raised the Difficulty to 240 and pedaled till I lost 25 calories.

I then went and done some stretches for the Shoulders like putting the hand across the Body and stretching the back of the Shoulder.

Shoulders: My first set was with the Lateral Raises Machine for the Shoulders and I did a warm up set of 20 or so pounds and done it for 15 reps.

I then jumped on the Overhead Pulley’s and done some Triceps Pushdowns on a straight Bar and done 15 reps in Controlled manner with 40 pounds (can’t remember).

I then rushed over to do 3 sets of Seated Dumbbell Presses and started off with 25 pounds and done 15 reps slowly and controlled.  My next set I went up to 40 pounds on each Side and pressed with great difficulty 8 hard reps and figuring I couldn’t do that again I went to 35 pounds and I done another 8 hard reps trying to keep my back on the pad and not moving around and favoring my arms.

I then went to the Machine Overhead Press and started with 80 pounds and managed to get out 5 reps with a standard shoulder-width grip but on the next set I dropped down to 60 pounds and done 10 reps with my hands very widely-spaced.

I then went and got some 15 pound dumbbells and done some Lateral Dumbbell Raises for 12 reps with that weight, and then, I got 20 pounders and I done another 10 Grueling reps and focused on the way I was bringing up the weight.  I then done another set of that weight for another 10 reps but when I finished I done Drop sets and Picked up 15 pounders and done another 4 reps and then I immediately picked up the 10 pounders and got out another 5 reps.

I had a bit of a rest and then I went to do Dumbbell Front Arm Raises and started with 15 pounders and done 12 reps.  I then picked up the 20 pounders and I done another 10 reps but I had some trouble and for about 4 reps I had to do one arm at a time because of Fatigue setting in.  My last set was the same with 20 pounds on Each Dumbbell and doing 10 reps but with renewed strength.

Triceps: First I done some stretching for the Triceps and it was hard.  I started with the Cable Lying Tricep Extensions and started with 25 pounds for 15 reps.  I did them with strict control and throughout this exercise I done all sets with strict control.  My second set was with 45 pounds and I done that for a count of 12 reps and then I had a bit of a rest (By the Way I saw Tyrrell from the Feeling Fit about now).  My last set was with 50 pounds and for 10 reps.

I then decided to do Close Grip Bench-Presses.  I started with 40 pounds and I done 12 reps once again trying to keep the elbows in and trying to bring the bar up straight.  My second set was with 60 pounds and I done that for another 12 reps but with just a bit wider a grip than last time.  My last set was with the same weight and I done 12 more reps trying to keep my elbows in.

Forearms: I was pretty tired by now and I thought I should only do 3 sets all up for this body part, but 3 sets was enough for a great pump.

I did wrist curls and I started with 35 pounds on a Barbell and done 15 reps with my Thumbs under the Bar.  My next two sets were with a 40 pound bar and I done for both of them 12 reps each.

Abdominals: I started by doing 20 reps of crunches and I was pretty tired by now but not over-trained.  I done another set of 20 reps and then I went onto the Low Ab Crunches machine and done 8 reps on that (what a master at this machine I am?).

I then jumped onto the Cable Crunch Machine and done with 25 pounds Side Crunches for 10 reps and then I took it up to 40 pounds and did another 10 reps to each side.

Warm-down: I jumped on the bike for about 2 minutes and lost 5 calories.  I also relaxed by gazing at the girl at the front counter.  I think her name was Valerie.

Basketball with Denim

After that I went for about an hour and talked to Denim and played basketball and looked at Valerie for a while.

Muscle Pains

Today My Hamstrings are hurting a bit more and my legs are about the same and my Glutes are hurting more too.  I can feel my intercostal muscles already from the side Crunches I done today.

I also weighed myself today and from the start of the month I weighed 69 Kilos but now I weigh 70.5 Kilos and that’s 3.3 Pounds heavier than I was last if I am not mistaken.  I am going to aim for 73 Kilos by the end of April 1996.

Tomorrow I go fishing and the next day I go into the next month with a start to the computer course for Skillshare.
