Workout Number 11…it’s been a little over five weeks since I began training again, after about a 2 year layoff. In this one, I do some bench presses, squats, barbell curls, overhead presses, speed bag, and heavy bag. Jordan decided to join me for a little bit during this one too. I’m pretty happy with how my strength is coming back. I’ve been making some changes to my diet as well, so it will be interesting to see what difference that makes. Right now, I’m in a bit of an adjustment period, as my body gets used to getting less simple carbs. I’m looking forward to seeing how the next month goes. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!

Jordan and I are shooting some new car vids today, but we’re going to slip in one more workout video this week. This is workout number 5. I do my first deadlifts in years and then move on to some heavy barbell curls. I tried to curl as strictly as possible on each weight. In the future, I’ll do them against a wall, so can guarantee true strict curl form. I curled 100, 126.4, 136.4, and then finally 140.8 Lbs. I setup the camera to the side, so you can judge if they were strict enough. Jordan decided to join me for some of the workout this time too. He has only been working out consistently since Nov. 15…I think he’s going to be really strong if he sticks with it. He seems to have some great natural strength. Anyway, we’re having a lot of fun lifting and we appreciate you watching!
If you are a regular subscriber, you can rest assured…we’ll be getting back to more consistent car videos soon. This is the 4th full workout in our video series of me trying to get back in shape. I did another workout a couple of days prior, that I didn’t film, so this is truly my fifth full workout after about 2 years off. In this one, I did my regular heavy bag and speed bag punching, but also decided to throw in some kicks. I threw some straight front kicks, crescent kicks, and round house kicks at both the heavy and speed bags. I haven’t done any of that in a long time, so I’m not that flexible at the moment. I also did a few sets of full depth squats and with some overhead presses in between. Did some of the presses in strict military style, but others with a bit of knee dip…I think both have their value. Then I finished up with a few reps of 128 Lb barbell curls, but two were cheated pretty badly. Once again, just testing to see where I’m at currently. I hope you find these home gym videos interesting and I really do appreciate you watching. I’ll have many more workout videos in the days ahead, just maybe on more of a once a week basis. Thanks again for watching!
