Haven't worked out in a long while, but I did purchase this last year. 4 month wait to get it and then was too cold to ride. I've been playing with it some to get my legs use to it before I go on a all day ride with the family. Baught my wife a Giant mountain bike and taught her how to ride it "ish". I've been many hundreds of miles on a bicycle but I was half the wight and half the age I am now...

Trying to teach my daughter how to ride again humbled me. I couldn't make it 200 yards without my legs screaming. I walk three miles everyday at work. Trying to peddle uphill in first gear wore me down.

That is when I decided I had to get back in the gym.

Nice work!
I’ve been working on my house and haven’t trained for a few days.
However, I was swinging my mace in-between jobs all weekend.
Get done some painting, get some swings in while the paint dries.
Wrap up one job, mace swings before the next job.
I’m back on it tonight though!

Sometimes that is the only way you can get it done. Plus, it can be great for recovery.

Back on the Public Assistance Project, which is my favorite program thus far.

Here is the link to Day 1:

I’ve completed this program 3 times.
There are 30 training days and it is designed to be done 4 days a week.
1st run I completed it in 8 weeks.
2nd time it was done in 6 weeks.
3rd time I banged it out in 5 weeks.
This round, I’m aiming for 5 days a week for a 6 week wrap up.

If anyone is interested in following along, let me know!

Yesterday
Hammer Strength Iso Row - 1*12 add weight 3*10
Smith Machine Barbell Rows - 3*10
Smith Machine Shrug - 2*10, 1*15 (shoulders finally got warm)
Assisted Pull-up - 3*10
Preacher Curl - 3*10
Cable Curls - 3*10

Today
Super Standing Leg Press - 2 warm-up sets, 3*10

Smith Machine Low Incline Bench - 2 warm-up sets, 2*10, 1*5(pause) 3 (pause) 2 (pause) 2

Chest Supported T-bar Row 3*7 (need to lower weight)

Rope Upright Row/ Rope Curl - 3*10

Rope Tricep Press Down- 3*10

The plan is to add an extra set with the same 10 rep weight next week. The goal is 4*10 and then add weight while dropping back to 3*10. Progressive overload and undulating volume for hypertrophy. I plan to run that for 4-6 weeks.

Monday
Seated Chest Press
Shoulder Press
Incline Chest Press
Lateral Raise
Parallel Bar Dips
Upright Rows
Tricep Extensions

It was supposed to be 4x10 with last week's weight, but I was also able to increase weight. I found alternating chest and shoulders allowed me to perform each exercise better.

Today
Seated Leg Curl
Pendulum Squat
Seated Leg Extension
Laying Leg Curl
Alternating Iso Lateral Leg Extension (to failure)
Low Speed Stair Master (15 floors to burn out legs)

Everything was 4*10 unless otherwise noted. Weights were all up from last week. I messed up on pendulum squats and didn't brace properly. I ended up with a lot of pressure in my lower back along my hips. The workout went well otherwise.

That’s a seriously badass program.
Hopefully you’re back feels better soon.

It is a modified version of Jim Stoppani's "Machine Muscles" program. I usually don't recommend anything he puts out these days. However, this comes from a book he wrote before becoming a supplement shill and known liar. Some of the stuff in it is actually decent.

I think my back will be fine. I just have to remember that bracing is still important even on machines.

Saturday morning
I ended with sets of mace 360 to curl to 360 to curl at the end for a cool-down.
Mind you, this is not the cute Onnit maces that people dance around with. This is a Wolf Brigade 8kg mace which is a different, and more effective in my mind, design. (That sounded arrogant, not my intention! It’s just a badass piece of equipment).

This was from this morning. I was cooked by the end, but feel great now!
