Monday January 12th.
I got up and started off the day with some Aerobics for 30 mins, then i done some push ups. Diamond push ups, and regular push ups. 45 x3 of regular push ups, 32 x3 of Diamond push ups. I slightly upped my effort from last time.
Then it was time to work my Abs i done 20 x3 for all these Ab works, which were Planks, Jackknifes, Hanging Leg Raises, Ball Crunch, Twisting Ball Crunch, Basic Crunch, Bicycle Crunches, Leg Raises.
Then i finished off my workout by getting a chair, with my arms behind me. Legs straight and going up and down hitting my Triceps, then i followed Scrap's advice and done some stretches, especially for my neck which was for about 15 mins.
I finished my workout quite early so like i said Youngbloods log, i was gonna go swimming and i did but instead of taking the car. I took my bike instead it is quite a distance but its not too far, anyway when i got there i was a little bit rusty in the water but it didn't take me long to get used to it again.
There was hardly anyone there so i just swam up and down the pool, doing a mixture of Butterfly, Backstroke, The Crawl, Breast Stroke. As i said i did used to swim at school so i learnt quite alot about swimming technique's ETC.
I wasn't really counting how many times i went up and down the pool. I was just trying to do a mixture of swimming moves, to push my body to its limit. I was in there for atleast 30 minutes taking a few breaks here and there. And when i was finished i got the strangest urge to jump right off the little springboard.
Im no diver but i just done a bomb right in the pool and god did it feel good, then i just layed on the water for 10-15 mins and it feels so awesome. Its like you can walk on water, anyway then i was finished for today. I really enjoyed myself it felt like the good old days.
I must bring my girl with me after the pregnancy, and i will take my baby and learn it how to swim aswell damn that will be cool i can't wait.

Wednesday January 14th.
I've added a pound so im now 166 pounds which is good, it maybe a bit slower than i thought it would be. But atleast its progress anyway, i started off the weight training with some Squats 85 KG 6 reps x3, i was able to add more weight because i bought a Squat rack.
I then done some Bench Pressing 87.5 KG's 6 reps x3, and some Dumbell Bench Pressing aswell, i took some weight off so i could concentrate on the chest more. I done 10 reps x3 of this, then i finished off with some Chest Dips upstairs with my chin up bar, 12 x3 of this exercise.

Damn i haven't updated this in ages, i've been busy. But basically im pretty much at my peak weight now, which is 176 pounds and im just a shade under 6'2. I was up to 180+ but i lost a few pounds toning up.
I don't really lift heavyweights anymore, i go to the gym and go on the machines pretty much now. I've upped the swimming, and i do quite alot of riding on my bike.
I do AB workouts 4 times a week. Lower, Obliques, Upper. My diet has been pretty strict but i haven't lost any muscle mass. I basically feel at my peak now and i've achieved what i wanted.
Im going to continue the cardio and the gym workouts, but its pretty much just to keep the shape im in now.
Way to go! You must be pretty pleased with yourself. Do you still spar these days?
If you hear a voice within you saying that I am not a painter, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.
But i want to do some boxing again, just as a hobby now though. And maybe fit in some sparring here and there, because i do love boxing.
Just a little update on this i don't do as much weights anymore, i basically do mostly crunches, cardio.
I've got very lean now and my primary cardio is swimming now, because im training to be a lifeguard soon. So i've been in the pool most days.
