So I love this crossfit stuff and maybe I am going crazy but when I look in the mirror I don't really like what I see on the other end. Maybe I have fallen in love with the wrong workouts? My workouts have been ignoring my arms, chests, and abs.
Here is what a crossfit machine should look like...
So I have decided to switch it up again. I need to step my cardio up, get back to lifting, isolating body parts, and doing a crossfit once a week. To keep me motivated I am going to sign up for some races, take my measurements, take some photos(for my eyes only), and most importantly I need to count my damn calories. I feel like this is a continuous struggle but I am going to make it happen or maybe this is my best... : (
So this week I have done arms (Monday) by loading up on every possible curl -- hammer, preacher, iso, 21's, reverse grip, flat bar. Pounded the tris-overhead ext's, reverse pull-downs, rope curl, close grip bench, skull crushers.
Today I got back to a traditional leg workout - squats(235),leg-press(680),good-mornings(135),hamstring extensions,calfs,leg curls,lunges. Boring shit but I felt like myself again.
Then after I got home I was feeling fat and deflated again b/c I continually workout and don't get the results I want so I was going to do 50 pull-ups. The goal was 50 pull-ups any grip, no matter how many sets it took to complete. The punishment was every set had to be followed by 25 pushups and 25 situps. The end result was 7 sets, 175 pushups, and 175 crunches.
Nothing is ever easy unless your going to take some roids or have great genetics.So even if you feel down in the dumps, don't ever give up. Keep fighting the battle of the bulge and always remember to count calories.
