Hello All,

My first post in a while. I was recently hired full time in a fitness related occupation. It’s awesome. Regular schedule and most importantly they invest in their employees with an educational stipend. That is the main reason why I have not made any posts in the last…. 3 months or so. With my schedule I had to change my training, and limit their length as well. In the past 2 weeks I have been doing Push/Pull/Legs as a 3 on 1 off type of schedule. Lately I go by ear and just work the muscles related to the movement hard. Here are 3 Sample workouts I have done recently. Reps and Sets won’t be listed but I just go by how I feel. I might put together an post regarding this “routine” at a later time. Similar to my original Push/Pull/Legs post.

Push
Dips
Incline Dumbbell Press
Seated Dumbbell Press
Incline Flys
French Press
Laterals

Pull
Chin Up
Cable Row
Lat Pulldown
Isolateral Row
Hammer Curl
Incline Curl
Wrist Flexion and Extension

Legs
Squats or 45 Degree Hack Squat
Stiff-Legged Deadlift
Good Morning
Leg Curl
Calf Raise Machine
Seated Calf Raises

I just go in there and try to work the muscle group. Nothing crazy.

That is all! 🙂

Hello All,

So recently my workouts have been all over the place. I recently pulled my right glute. I am not sure how it happened. Might have been from doing push ups of all things. I won’t be doing any lower body training until the middle of next week. SO I decided to post some upper body work out options. These are just a few I have used, but there are countless others.

Upper Body Combo 1 (Push/Pull or Chest and Back)
Bench Press
Bent Over Row (as close to 90 degrees as possible)
Dumbbell Pull Over

Upper Body Combo 2 (Shoulders,Back,Triceps)
Overhead Press
Dumbbell Row
Lateral Raise

Upper Body Combo 3 (Chest,Delts,Biceps,Triceps)
Close Grip Bench Press
Overhead Press
Barbell Curls

Upper Body Combo 4 (Back, Delts, Triceps)
Bent Over Row
Behind Neck Press (only if you can do correctly)
French Press

Full-Arm Workout
Barbell Curl
Pull Over
Hammer Curl
French Press
Barbell Wrist Flexion/Extension
Forearm Roller or Hand Gripper

Chest Workout
Bench Press (any variation)
Dumbbell Fly (any variation)
Push Ups (any variation for 100 total reps)

The above are just combinations that I have used together. There are probably more that I have used but these are just a few of countless combinations.

This is what I did today. I had a lot of rest and energy, plus it was too cold to leave the house. 🙂

Squats
Deadlift

Monday (Upper)
Bench Press
Rowing Variations
Curl Variation
Forearm work

Wednesday (Upper)

Rowing Variation
Curl Variations

Thursday (Lower)
Squat
Deadlift

Friday (Upper)

I try to sneak in dips and pull ups while i am at work. But other than that I am not doing too many calisthenics.

Time for work.

(epicharmus) (epicharmus) McDonald’s and some of its franchisees retaliated against workers who participated in protests and other demonstrations over hours and working conditions, the National Labor Relations Board said today, in announcing several complaints it filed accusing the fast-food chain of violating workers’ rights with “discriminatory discipline.”

Regional offices of the NLRB filed 13 complaints today covering 78 specific charges, the organization said, though some of those complaints have been settled or to be found without merit since the investigation started in 2012.

And because the position of the NLRB is that McDonald’s HQ exerts such an influence over its franchisees that it should be treated as a joint employer alongside the franchisees, the chain is charged as a co-employer in addition to the franchise owners named in the complaints.

A spokeswoman for the company challenges that view, saying in a statement (via UPI) that McDonald’s…

Thais like to celebrate with Sky Lanterns. These are a paper ‘balloon’ with a burner underneath.

First the burner must be attached to the lantern with thin wire. The burner is like a roll of tape that is impregnated with some kind of substance that burns with a nice big yellow flame, which gives the lantern that lovely bright warm glow. The burner is actually quite difficult to light, with a lighter, but once lit it stays lit.

Then you must wait for the balloon part to fill with hot air from the burner. Once there is enough hot air the sky lantern will take off, generally people give them a little encouragement, with a ‘push’ skywards.

The real pros with these things light them then rest of the sand until ready to take off. However for a couple it’s nice for one to hold either side, until the lantern…
