Pumping Iron

I’ve been going back to the gym for the last few weeks and I like it. I’ve got more energy, I’ve been automatically getting up earlier (waking up near my alarm at 6:15 instead of loathing to move at 7:15, feeling a bit more “in my body”, decreasing my body aches a bit, and starting to look a little better in the mirror. Hurray!

Schuyler showed me the Stronglifts 5×5 workout (Thanks Schuyler!). The promise is to get me in and out of the gym in 30 minutes 3 times per week and it’s working!

My workout is very simple:
Stretch, run 5 minutes at 6.5 mph for warmup.

“A” day workout:
* Squat
* Bench Press
* Barbell Row

“B” day workout:
* Squat
* Overhead Press
* Deadlift

All lifts are 5 sets of 5 lifts, add 5 pounds at every workout session.

Deadlifts are just 1 set of 5 lifts. Add 10 pounds at every workout.

Here’s a link to the workout at Stronglifts.com

I ditched the fancy Stronglifts app in favor of Google Sheets. No figuring out how their app works, no ads, no fuss!


Stay strong!
