Ok. I haven’t posted in a while. I have been busy. I still workout most days. I am down to 253.6 pounds as well as have put on some muscle. I am no longer using the totals (from August 16th) that I posted in my last post. My new totals are coming from September 26th and on. That is when my true set up workout began (instead of random stuff each day).

Here are some notes I wrote for myself, I will share them with you guys so that you will know all I go through.
– As my individual exercises become to easy, add 1 set to said exercise (the one that became too easy).
– Each month (starting on 9/26), add 5 reps to each set of each exercise and add 2 sets of 5 of another exercise.
– Start each new exercise at 90 seconds rest between sets. With all exercises, drop to 60 seconds after 1 month.
– If I don’t complete a goal on any day, add 1 set to the next days workout for the exercise I didn’t finish.
– When I post “(add one set tomorrow)” after an exercise…if it is for an exercise I will be doing the next day, just add one set. If it is for an exercise I wont be doing the next day (based on Workout 1 and 2), just do one set.
– With the “weights” section, follow the same rule as other exercises for added sets and reps…but also add a new exercise each month.
– If I like the APK WOD or believe it to be something that will help me out…add it to the workout it fits best with.

Also, the Situps and Planks each day are from an app on my iPhone (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ab-workouts-free/id420178541?mt=8). The app is amazing. I got the free version and used it for a while. Then I got the paid version (for $2, I believe) and it adds more workouts, plus more exercises. The creator of the app can be contacted through the email section of the app and he actually responds…quite quickly too. The app also has a small section on foods. All in all, the app is amazing and I highly recommend it.

The Split Squats and Handstands were originally a WOD on 9/26, but have been added to Workout 1 as of 10/3.

The Palm Up Wrist Curls with Both Arms begin on 10/4 with Workout 2.

Here are the workouts with the goals.

October 2nd – 253.6 (+2.4. Darn. I worked, so I couldn’t work out or eat the healthiest. A pattern will occur…I will gain weight on the weekend and loose it on weekdays)
