So, here is what week 4 looked like online:
Monday: Chest & Triceps
I like that the rep range (10 reps) is smaller so I tried to up the weight for some of the exercises while still trying to keep a minute between sets. The workout still takes less than an hour which I love, but I'm not getting too used to it since I know they will be longer in Phase 2.
I actually woke up at 5AM and went to the gym...yikes! It was hard but I had a work event after work so I knew I had to do the workout in the morning. I warmed up with 10 minutes on the bike and got to squating and lunging. I actually hadn't done this workout yet (skipped it last week) and all the weighted squats and lunges really worked my whole legs, I was FEELIN it the next day.
I was supposed to use Wednesday as my extra day to do whatever and I was going to go to Element 5 for bootcamp but I was exhausted and sore so I listened to my body and did nothing!
Thursday: Shoulders & Abs
I really tried to up the weight on the shoulder exercises since I don't feel like I've pushed myself in this department yet. I still think I could bump it up even more in the next phase. I'm hoping a REAL pull-up is in my near future :).
Friday: Back & Biceps
Veteran's day = day of off work so I woke up and went into the gym in the morning which was nice and quiet.
Saturday & Sunday: REST
I know Phase 2 is going to be challenging so I rested up my tired and sore muscles so I'm ready to go on Monday. I spent the weekend eating great food, hanging out with some great friends, and seeing a great band...all around GREAT weekend.
And since no post would be complete without some pictures, here are some random ones from my phone:

|AHH...baby gorilla! She is 4 years old and that is her mama.|

Question: Do any of you make it a point to say "hi" to people you are working out around in the gym? I find it a little odd that everyone is so silent when they are literally working out inches from one another.
