Exercise Log 10.24.13 (Chest Day + Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Fri Oct 25 2013

Today was another “beginning again” day for me at the gym, this time with chest work instead of the squat work I had done the day before. My focus today was the bench press, and trying to wean myself off the smith machine. Chest day is a fun day for me because it’s all about […]

Exercise Log 10.23.13 (Ab & Fun Day, No Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Wed Oct 23 2013

Quick note from the latest exercise routine. Today was Fun Day which by default is ab work with a “challenge”. I’ve been absorbing information about squatting and trying to make myself a better squatter, so today I was calling for a special “squat-topia” training day for my challenge. Short story on squatting and me is […]

Exercise Log 10.22.13 (Arm Day + Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Wed Oct 23 2013

Typical arm day so this log will be short. Got to the gym late today (took another midday nap in my car) and it was packed, all of Monroeville seemed overly busy today for whatever reason. After warming up I hit a curl bar, started heavy (for me) with a 70lb curl bar and did […]

Exercise Log 10.20.13 (Leg Day + Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Mon Oct 21 2013

Today was a bit frustrating at the gym definitely, perhaps it was just low energy or a shitty night’s sleep last night due to carpal tunnel pain, but it was very rough. After my leg warmups which went well, I got started with squats. Starting with the front squat, my focus was twofold, one to […]

Exercise Log 10.19.13 (Back & Shoulder Day + Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Sat Oct 19 2013

Deadlift mania today as I did some routines to focus on my back strength. My theme today and my theme on back day in general will be more strength training than mass building, so ultra high weights low repetitions many sets is the ideal. Just trying to push it to the max because my back […]

Exercise Log 10.18.13 (Chest Day, No Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Fri Oct 18 2013

So running on a one week deficit from my workout cycle due to a lot of unplanned rest days or distraction days, normally my cycle is less than one week to fully rotate over, so we’ll see how that goes. Anyways I’m recording this info about chest day a day after, so my recollection will […]

Exercise Log 10.17.13 (Fun Day Video Blog!)

By phoebusapollo on Fri Oct 18 2013

Today I sorta crashed in the evening, maybe my body just needed some rest maybe I just ran into a low spot. My gym buddy didn’t make it either so I had no obligation to be at the gym at all today, being a day off I rarely spend my days off at home… just […]

Exercise Log 10.16.13 (Arm Day + Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Thu Oct 17 2013

Had a great workout today figured I’d document it before I completely forget, yet again. In the spirit of Halloween I decided to try a new workout I saw from Scott Herman’s fitness channel on Youtube, Tricep Terror! First though I got in and hit biceps, also using some advice I had from Scott Herman’s […]
