Bulk Arms and Beast Abs. Interesting combination. I had achieved another personal goal during that workout. I was finally doing heavier weights, with proper form, than the two workout partners in the video. To be quite frank, they were more built than I hoped to be, so to realize I was pushing harder and stronger than them was quite motivating. Continue reading →
Bulk Back. Personal victory – I did two full sets of ten reps of wide grip pull-ups. Third set I managed to do five before moving to the lat pulldown machine. I was pleasantly pleased with my jump in progress. Continue reading →

Exhausted from the Council Chambers meeting last night. Let me tell you this, if you’ve ever considered going into politics, don’t. It was the most painfully boring part of my life at that time. Regardless, up bright and early to hit the gym for Build Legs. Continue reading →

Beast Cardio. Beast Abs. Exactly what I needed. With two 20 lb dumb bells in hand I engaged in a very intense 35 minutes of cardio followed up with 11 minutes of non-stop ab work. No heavy lifting.
