Irregular Sleep

I did something weird today, or my body did anyway.  I went to sleep at 2:00 am today and I got up at 6:00 am in the morning for no reason.  I could have gotten up and felt good for the day but 4 hours of sleep is not enough, so I went back to sleep and got back up at 8:00 am.  Now this too was weird so I went back to sleep.  I then got up at about 10:30 am and stayed up.

Muscle Gains

I went up in weight today and I now weigh 71 Kilos.  That’s a 0.3 Kilo gain in as little as 3 days.

When I got up I noticed most of my body-parts had grown, and that also includes my third leg.  A bit weird I know but it’s something to note.  I think in the month to come I will be growing proportionately and I will be increasing my height also.  And I guarantee me a job in 1 month.

Gym Session

Now to my workout regimen.

Warm-up: My warm-ups are getting more intense these days.  I got on the bike and I did 5 minutes and I lost 25 calories.

I then went and done some stretches, starting with doing a warm up set on Standing Calf Raises with 120 pounds for 15 reps doing them strict and slow.  I stretched the calf by getting up against a bar and holding my leg flat on the floor that I am stretching and bending the other leg.

I also did Triceps stretches and some Shoulder stretches.

Deltoid: I started with a warm up on the Machine Lateral Raises and I used 20 pounds and I done 12 reps.

I then moved to the Seated Dumbbell Overhead Press and I started with 25 pounds and I did 12 reps with that weight.  The next set was with 40 pounds and I did 8 more reps.  I then jumped to 45 pounds and I did a set to failure of 4 reps.

I then went back to the Machine Lateral Raises and did a 3 more sets.  The first set was with 40 Pounds and I did 10 reps with that weight going higher than shoulder height.  The next set was with 50 pounds and I did 10 more reps.  I then went back down to 40 pounds and I did another 10 reps.

I thought I should do my Rear Deltoids and so I went to Rear Deltoid Machine and I started with 20 pounds and done 12 reps.  The next set was with 40 pounds and I concentrated on crunching the shoulder blades together.  I did 10 reps with this weight.  I then moved up to 50 pounds and done another 10 reps.

I wanted to do more of a compound movement so I went to the Machine Overhead Press and I used 60 pounds for 10 reps.  It was pretty hard considering I was halfway through Shoulders and I was doing a compound movement.  I moved up to 80 pounds and I done 8 reps with that weight with Great Difficulty.  I then moved it down to 70 pounds and done 7 reps with that.

My last 2 sets were of Front arm raises and I was pretty tired by now.  My first set was with 2 15-pound dumbbells and I did 10 reps one hand at a time.  I then moved up to 20 pounds and I did another 10 reps one hand at a time.

Forearms: I started with 35 pounds on a bar and I did wrist curls for 15 reps going all the way up and rolling the fingers.  I then stepped to the side and with the same bar done Reverse Curls for 10 reps.  I then got a bigger heavier bar weighing 45 pounds something I haven’t used before in this gym and I done wrist curls for another 12 reps.

I then did Reverse Curls again for 10 reps.

After a slight rest I done Wrist curls again for 12 reps with the same bar.

For my last set I done Reverse Curls for 10 reps.

Calves: Well for Calves I did a pretty different approach to training.  It’s kind of circuit training but with a bit more rest and more weight.  Altogether I did 6 sets not including my warm-up.

My first set was on the Standing Calf Raises and I started with 140 pounds and I did 15 reps.  I then moved to the Donkey Calf Raises and I did 200 pounds with 15 reps.  I then had a little rest maybe 30 seconds and I went to Seated Calf Raises and I did 15 reps with 40 pounds.

I had a minute’s rest and moved onto Standing calf raises for 15 reps with 200 pounds. I moved to the Donkey calf raises and did 240 pounds for 15 reps.  I was starting to tire so I decided this would be my last set.  I done Seated Calf Raises and did 60 pounds for 15 reps.

Warm-Down: This consisted of doing 3 minutes on the bike and losing 10 Calories.

I’m having a lovely Lunch and it tastes nice, when I get to eat it that is.

After Lunch I am calling Rod to see what he’s doing and I might go out tonight.
