5 AM torture session. Couldn't do the ball push-ups. Inside elbow joints were on fire. Used perfect pushup tools instead.

I'm still in it. I am at the point now if I do not work out it looms over me. Kinda weird as I never was a work out kind of person. Guilt.

I'm old school in my workouts. I do them 5 times a week, Monday thru Friday. I DO CARDIO EVERY DAY. My cardio is about 30 minutes usually the elliptical and 15-20 minutes of light weights.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday are all upper body. Tuesday and Thursday are legs. I started at 287 and now at 249. I am not in it to build mass on the weights just get some strength and tone.

Carbs are killers but I did not eliminate them completely. I have done the no carb diets and lost a bunch of weight. Realistically I and most people can't hold out forever without carbs, imo. I love beer and I have cut back. I do enjoy ice cream every now and then but have cut way back on the sweets. I never was a cola drinker.

A1C is the best it has ever been and my HBP is finally manageable. I work out best by myself. If you can't do that get with someone who motivates you and pushes you. I like the time to think and this works out well for me when working out. Do not weigh yourself all the time. You will vary and weighing can be a crusher.

Be patient. You will have good days and days you just don't want to do anything but know it is in your best interest. Stay after it and best of luck.

Freaking septic tank! Gotta have it pumped. Them bastages charge $40 per 30 minutes to dig it up. I'm in the wrong business!

Yesterday and today were supposed to be rest days. Went and got 2 loader buckets of topsoil. Shovelled it into the back of the side by side and shovelled it back out in spots across the yard.
Legs are sore today. Gonna spread fertilizer this after, but I went and bought a pull behind spreader for that! Happy father's day.

Redneck workouts are the best. You only think you're in shape until you do manual labor!

I keep forgetting to post. Cardio, shoulders and abs today. Leaving for Montana tomorrow so I doubt Im going to get much exercise in for the next week. Probably some walking/jogging and golfing will be the most available to me.

Legs and back today. Didn't get much done as my hip started kicking my arse this morning when I got out of bed.

Pendlay rows
leg extensions
Narrow grip pullups

Then I quit. Pain was all the way down to the middle of my hamstring. Surgery is scheduled for next Tuesday. I'll be glad to get this shizzle over with.

I'm still working hard just haven't been posting much. Still getting ready for a Colorado hunt so lots of miles with my pack outside, and on the treadmill with the incline set high. Saturday I went and spent about 20 minutes at the football field walking the bleachers. I knew I'd be sore, but was surprised...the only thing sore is my calves. Upper legs were fine.

Then Monday I started the Insanity Max 30 routine. Just finished up day 3 and it definitely lives up to it's name. I can honestly say though at 40 I'm in the absolute best shape of my life, and it feels pretty good.

Tony Horton (P90X) likes those dive bombers and Jeff Cavalier (Athlean X) likes the Spiderman ones. They're both a good variation of the push-up.
