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!

This is Workout Number 10 and I’m starting to feel a lot better. I’m just now beginning to feel my strength coming back. In this one I did about 10 sets of the bench press and then about 6 sets of deadlifts. I’m still not lifting anything very impressive, but I am beginning to feel my strength come back. After a month, I’m finally getting a lot less sore between workouts too. I’m anxious to see how the next month goes. I thank you for your support and really do appreciate you watching!
Decided to post another workout vid, because we don’t have any car videos on the hard drive right now. Jordan and I hope to go film some new one’s in the next day or two. The weather has been terrible this past week. Anyway, for those of you that have been following the workout videos, I thank you for your support. After 9 workouts, I can feel my strength beginning to come back and I’m feeling better in general. I’m excited to see what the next month brings. Thanks for watching!
Dec 26th marked one full month of working out again, after about a 2 year layoff. This is workout number 8 and I’m finally starting to feel my strength come back a bit. In this video, I did a pyramid of bench press sets, followed by 5 additional sets for more volume. I’m hoping the extra volume will help me start building some muscle. As always, I supersetted the Bench Presses with pulldowns on my homemade lat machine. Jordan and I also threw in some punching on the speed bag and heavy bag. We goof around a little bit just to keep things interesting, so we don’t get bored. Hope you find the video interesting, thanks for taking a look!
I was feeling pretty worn out, but I decided to get a workout in anyway. Posting these videos motivates me to keep going. In this one, I did some light squats, some true strict curls, and some overhead presses. I felt especially weak in the overhead presses…I’m guessing as a result of my bench press workout two days earlier. Anyway, I pushed through and decided to end with some speed bag work and some kicks. I suck at kicking right now, because I really need to increase my flexibility…but it’s still kind of fun. I’m trying to improve my diet, so I can have more energy and so I can recover more quickly. I’m adding in more protein, to help build back what I’m tearing down. Hopefully it all starts to come together as the weeks go by. Thank you for watching, I appreciate it!
This is Workout Six in my “Getting Back in Shape” series of videos. I’ve just returned to lifting regularly after a couple of years away from it. I decided to post videos of my workouts from the beginning, so that I can track my progress over time. Knowing that I’m going to post the videos, keeps me working hard. In this one, I warm up with some punching on the speed bag and heavy bag, then move over to the bench. I’m trying to take it slow and use strict form on the bench press. I’m not using much weight yet, but that will come in time. I like to superset by bench pressed with a pulling movement…in this workout I used lat pulldowns. I think they are complimentary to the bench. I hope you find this interesting, I’ll be back with another video in a few days. Thanks for watching!

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!
