PA’s Tableside Chats Ep. 5 “End of Phase 1”… Exercise Log 5.2.14 (Back Day, No Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Fri May 02 2014

One of the things I promised myself was I’d plan my break from the gym around the vacation time I requested off for after the half marathon. So today was my last workout day and since I’m starting a new plan to replace the one I’ve been doing for the last year, I decided to […]

Exercise Log 4.26.14 (Back Day, No Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Sat Apr 26 2014

Quick log yet again… back day and deadlifts, had a lot of fun felt great after this workout. I was on a time limit so it was important to crunch the most I could into it. Once again, I’m playing catchup on typing logs so this will be for the books. Deadlifts: Sets 1 & […]

Exercise Log 4.17.14 (Back Day, No Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Thu Apr 17 2014

Today was back day, and I decided to try something new. My workout plan was revised recently to focus less on constant new one rep max work (which was getting me gains consistently, but perhaps not the best ones and also necessitating injuries). So now I’m focused more on working harder for it and not […]

Exercise Log 4.10.14 (Back Day, No Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Thu Apr 10 2014

Alright still catching up with logs, today was back day. Obligations today and the fact it was nice outside and I didn’t want to stay couped up encouraged me to do a shorter workout. As a reminder to myself, I need to stop doing longer workouts – I’ve ranted about it before but I keep […]

Exercise Log 4.5.14 (Back Day, No Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Sat Apr 05 2014

Well today was back day again, and something I learned today had a pretty big impact on my workout. I saw this video on Jonnie Candito’s training channel CanditoTrainingHQ. Bicep tears are a common deadlift problem but not often spoken about. I notice when I do deadlifts I do feel periodic twangs up and down […]

Exercise Log 3.22.14 (Back Day + Fight for Air Climb ’14)

By phoebusapollo on Sat Mar 22 2014

Started out today with a fun trip up One Oxford Center at a fundraising stair climb for the American Lung Association. I definitely used my lungs (and legs) to get me up 897 steps in 9:47, which I think is pretty good for a first timer. I however could’ve done better if I had listened […]

Exercise Log 3.14.14 (Back Day, No Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Fri Mar 14 2014

Alright a quick log of my back day. Was very groggy and tired to start this workout but the deadlifts woke me up. Deadlifts: Set 1) 5 reps @ 235lbs (plus one penalty rep for bouncing the weight too fast). Set 2) 5 reps @ 255lbs. Set 3) 2 reps @ 275lbs, 1 rep @ […]

Exercise Log 3.7.14 (Back Day + Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Fri Mar 07 2014

Okay, still in a rush to post backlogs so keeping this short. This back workout was real effective honestly I could’ve cut 1-2 exercises out. Never go sit in gym bleachers for nearly 4 hours after a workout like this, your back will not be happy. Deadlifts: Set 1) 5 reps @ 235lbs. Set 2) […]

Exercise Log 2.28.14 (Back Day + Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Fri Feb 28 2014

Today was back day, I was optimistic the workout would be great but it really wasn’t. It was rough. One rant I want to lay down while I’m writing this log up is that I’m definitely trying to change some of my perspectives on the level of work I’m putting in compared to results. I […]
