Melanie and myself, pushing the boys, went for a 3 mile run on her lunch break. The temperature was about 63' F and was mostly cloudy with little to no wind. Ideal for me. Hate the heat. The boys were good and gave us no trouble. I pushed myself pretty good for this run and had excellent build up of lactic acid in the quads while pushing the boys up the hills.
We finished our 3 mile run with a time of 24:46. Thursday I ran by myself (pushing the boys) and received a time of 26:40, a 2 minute improvement though it was sunny and a temp of 75'.
I've been bodybuilding for one year now and I enjoy it tremendously and will continue to body build until my end. I love it that much. I workout 4 days and take one day off, then repeat. I always mix things up with different exercises, weights, sets and reps. If you don't you will not build the muscles.
Example of a 4 day Workout:
Day 1: Chest, Front and Side Delts (Shoulders but not rear delts)
Day 2: Quads, Hamstrings, Calves and Abs
Day 3: Biceps and Triceps
Day 4: Back, Rear Delts and Abs
Day 5: OFF
Day 6: Repeat
I like to do 3 or 4 exercises per body part, 4 sets per exercise, with a rep range of 6-12. Generally takes one hour a day. I always do one or two warm-up sets with light weights before beginning. I do not stretch before lifting because the muscles are cold. It will not help you. Only stretch after you have warmed your muscle that you are training.
- Melanie asked me to pick a number from 1-14 and I picked my Lucky number "7." She told me that The Running Briefs is the WINNER of the second pair of Pearl Izumi shorts, so CONGRATS! (7th person on the list) Email Melanie your address and she will Ship them out.
