Last 3 workouts

Sometimes a guy just gets lucky and shows up at the right place and the right time to butt in on Monica Brandt’s photo shoot with Lisa Brewer!  Lucky me!!!

My workouts have been going well!  Last week I super-setted chest and back.  My shoulders and elbows were sore initially, but warmed up and I had a very strong workout.  On Friday Tricia met me at Hyde Park Gym for a shoulder and arm workout.  Our arm workout got cut short because I got called to pick Diana up from the doctor’s office (nothing serious).  Today I did legs, concentrating solely on squats and leg press.  Actually I planned to do the full workout, but I ran out of gas!  My abdominal muscles started cramping severely on my last set of leg presses.  I’m going to penalize myself and do my isolation work for quads, hamstrings and calves on Thursday, which is normally a rest day for me.

Wow!  I didn’t realize that it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted my workouts.  Above is a photo that Rick Spansel just recently sent me from my guest posing routine at the Capital of Texas Roundup.  I’ve been getting in all of my workouts and on the week Thanksgiving I even threw in a couple of extra workouts to keep the metabolism stoked in order to counteract the extra calories I consumed.   I survived Thanksgiving and mom’s awesome apple pie with only a couple of extra pounds on me.  That’s acceptable for this time of year!  My workouts have been going pretty well.  I’m going to just recap the highlights of the last two weeks and then give my whole leg workout that I did today.  Today I finally got to workout with Tricia again.  I think it’s been about 6 or 7 weeks since we worked out together.  I didn’t go nearly as heavy, but the pace was much faster and my legs are feeling it right now.  I’m sure they’ll be nice a sore tomorrow!
