The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Consistent practice equals consistent progress.


Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

NROL Fat Loss 1 Workout A5

I got up this morning and decided to give myself another rest day because I was still sore from Monday and Tuesday. However, just as I was getting ready to get in the shower I decided, spur of the moment, to go ahead and workout anyways. Other than my back being a little fatigued everything thing went swimmingly. (How many people caught that pun! :D)

Pushups from knees
1X10, 1X6, 1X4

Squat - After spending a good chunk of yesterday watching Squat Rx on YouTube I had a number of things to watch out for today. These were a bit more challenging. I really have to watch myself on GMing out of the bottom!!!
3X10 w/ BW

Bent Row - Despite my back being fatigued I managed to up my weight a bit and my form was good until the last rep or two on the third set!
2X10 @ 62lbs, 1X8 @ 62lbs

Hip Extension - I don't know if these are just a hard exercise or if I just suck that badly at them but.... THESE SUCK!!

DB Push Press - I thought I would be stuck at 15lbs on these but I was able to up it today. If I was still at 12 rep sets I wouldn't have been able to though.
1X10 @ 17e, 1X8 @ 17e (finished the last two reps with 15e), 1X2 @ 15e, 1X10 @ 15e

Step Ups - I am getting better. That is all I can say! I could really feel these in the top part of my hamstrings today which is good because I almost never feel anything in my hamstrings.
2X10!!! w/ BW

Reverse Crunch
1X20, 1X18

Straight Leg Raises
