Lifting move of the week and some quake shaking!

Posted Jun 23 2010 2:39pm

Last Wednesday I talked about how I was feeling fatigued with the workout and biking to breakfast, so today was the day try a bigger snack.  I had a protein drink with milk and protein powder to the tune of about 200 calories.  Normally I have about 110.  It was really humid this morning, too, so biking felt like swimming on my way in.  I also took a Tylenol PM last night, and it left me groggy this morning.

Exercise Set/rep/weight Muscle worked
Deadlifts 3 sets of 8 with 65# bar Lower body
Chin ups 1 sets of 2, 3 sets of 1 Upper body
1-legged dead lifts 3 sets of 8 each leg with 15# DBs (30# total) Hamstrings and balance
Incline bench press 3 sets of 10 at 55# Chest
Decline sit ups 3 sets of 10 Abs
Arnold Press 3 sets of 10 with 12# DBs (24# total) Shoulders
2-point dumbbell row 3 sets of 10 with 25# DBs (50# total) Back
Bench Dip 3 sets of 10 Triceps

Lifting move of the week is the Arnold Press!  This move is for your shoulders.  Named for the famous Arnold, and if you want to be cool, you can pronounce it as the Ah-nold press :mrgreen:   It’s for the front and side deltoid muscles.

Welcome back to my spare bedroom for t his video :


It’s pretty much a dumbbell press with an arm rotation for that little something extra.  It took me a few tries to get coordinated at doing it, too.  You can do this on an incline bench as well, for variety.

John met me at the gym and we biked on out.  I was very sweaty for this ride from humidity.  I don’t know as I noticed the extra 90 calories or not from my preworkout drink.

Lookie at the bagels!

They were starting to run low.

I got my wheat bagel with plain cream cheese and we sat outside.

Breakfast biking was 13 miles round trip.

After a slow morning of work, I got a hankering for some eggs for lunch.   On toast with some laughing cow and hot sauce.

Why, when it is hot and humid, do I proceed to make it worse with hot sauce?  Hello brain?

Quite the interesting time this afternoon. There was an earthquake here in the early afternoon:

And we felt it at our house.  I was working and at first I thought I was getting dizzy, but then I realized the house was rocking.  You could see the mirror and pictures moving.  It lasted for a while, too.  Very strange sensation when you are not in an area prone to this!

Snack time:

Plus a latte.

I am posting early today, as we are going to my niece’s moving up ceremony today and having pizza afterwards!  Congrats to Logan for moving up to the 6th grade :D

Added note: So far, I am still snacky on Wednesdays despite the extra calories.  Need to research more….

Stay tuned for an appropriate hot weather review/giveaway on Thursday….

Question:  Ever felt an earthquake?
