Workout Plan: Part 4

This is my last day of the workout plan and then I repeat and start of at Day 1 which for me is Chest and Biceps. On this day, the 4th day, I workout my legs and my abs.

Day 4: Legs and Abs

LEGS

Barbell Squats: 3 sets of 10 reps, 45lbs plate on each side, 45 second rest between sets.

Dumbbell in Hand Lunges: 3 sets of 10 reps (each leg), 20lbs dumbbells, 45sec-1 minute rest between sets.

Legs Extensions:
3 sets of 10 reps, 80lbs, 30-45 second rest between sets.

Leg Curls: 3 sets of 10 reps, 70lbs, 30-45 second rest between sets.

Calf Raises: 3 sets of 10 reps, 30lbs dumbbell in each hand, 45 second rest between sets.

ABS

On the mats, pick three different ab exercises you know of. What you do is set a timer for 30 seconds and do as much as you can for the 30 second timer. Then do a 30 second rest. And repeat with the next ab exercise.

And then if your gym has any ab machines. Do two of them, and do 3 sets of 10 reps on each machine with a 45 second rest.

Hope you have enjoyed my workout plan for strength training and muscle mass gaining. Maybe in the near future I will make more workout plans. Enjoy! And remember. GET FIT!

Show Review: Lets Talk Breaking Bad

Last nights episode, Season 5 Episode 11, was just amazing. I’m talking greatest and favorite episode for me to this date. Finally all the tension between Jesse and Walter has finally exploded. I knew what Walt has done had to come back and bite him in the ass eventually. Also we see Walter trying to convince Jesse to leave New Mexico and start a new life. But what we don’t know is if Walter genuinely cares about Jesse or if he is manipulating him to protect himself. And that is left up for us to think about.  My opinion is I believe that Walter actually cares for Jesse. Numerous times Walter had the chance to kill Jesse to help himself, but because he cares for him he doesn’t kill him. Also there is that one time when Walter was on a lot of pain killers and Walt Junior was caring for him, and Walter calls his son by Jesse’s name. So I honestly believe that Walter really does care for Jesse and really wants what is best for him. But then we go back to the times were Walter actually does use Jesse to benefit himself. And one of those reasons has finally come back to bite him in the ass. Jesse finally realizes that Walter was the one who poisoned Brock, using Saul’s security guard to steal it off of him. He wanted to get Jesse on his side to kill Gus but he needed to give Jesse a reason because Jesse was postponing. So Walt manipulated him into believing Gus was behind poisoning Brock.  Just when we thought Jesse was out, he gets pulled back in. What is going to happen now? Is Jesse going to kill Walter? Or is Walter going to protect and defend himself and possibly kill Jesse? Let’s Talk Breaking Bad. Leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!

Toronto Flooding

It has happened yet again. Well last year is nothing compared to today. Toronto streets are flooded with water as high as waist deep. Severe thunderstorms has caused flooding, blackouts, and chaos on the roads.Image

Many cases of power outings around the city have been reported. Luckily for me I live about 30 minutes north of Toronto, but I have family and friends living closer to the city. Toronto Hydro said as many as 300,000 people are without power around the city. They have crews around the city assessing the damage caused by this storm. All subways are out of order right now of course because of signal and power issues. But unfortunately there are people trapped in the underground subway stations. To those people affected, Stay Safe! And a special thanks to those crews around the city helping these unfortunate people and to those assessing damages and those working on restoring power to the people of Toronto. Those are real heroes. Stay safe TORONTO!

Game Review: The Last Of Us

I know I haven’t blogged in a long time for those of you who follow me. I have been caught up with many things lately but now I am back. This blog is going to be a review about the new Naughty Dog, a play station game developing company’s new game The Last Of Us.

This game had me, and still does, completely shun out from the real world. I have been playing this game steady for 2 weeks straight. I am already on my third play through. This game is all around amazing. I have been attached to it since the moment I started. There is no other game like it. Naughty Dog has done a good job creating a game in which you feel you are on this emotional roller coaster side by side with these characters. These characters seem so real. The voice actors have done an excellent job making these characters come to life. This game is so different from the others. There is no hero’s,  just people doing whatever it takes to survive. Two strangers developing a special bond together. Not only do the characters develop a bond together, but you develop a bond with the characters. YOU go through hell and back together, not just the characters. This game also gets you so emotionally attached. I have never felt so much emotion, such as: sadness, happiness, tiredness, joyfulness, and etc. while playing any game until now! The concept art, the graphics, and the motion capturing aspect of this game is just magnificent! This game is a work of art. I give this game a perfect score of 10/10.

Thank you Naughty Dog. You have done so well with this game! Hoping for more to come!

Quick note to my followers.

First off, I want to thank you for following me. I’m glad you enjoy reading my blogs as much as I like writing them. But I just wanted to say that, although right now it seems like I only write about fitness and working out,  that’s not all I will be writing about in my blogs. I blog about my interest, hobbies, tv shows, and maybe even how my day went. If there is anything that comes to mind that makes me go “Hey, this would be something good to blog about.” then that is what I will do. Anyways, I just wanted to get this message across, in case some of you are not enjoying my workout blogs. So stay tuned! Never know what I could blog about next!

Workout Program: Part 2

Welcome back to my Workout Program blog. Today’s blog will consist of Back and Triceps workouts.  Which is day 2 in my workout program. And in case you haven’t read my last blog, this program is meant for people who want to gain muscle mass. So the Resting time, the sets and the reps will be different from other programs that are meant for different things such as toning, and weight loss.

Day 2: Back and Triceps

BACK
Wide Grip Lat Pull Downs: 3 sets of 10 reps, 130lbs, with 45 second rest between sets.

Dead Lifts: 3 sets of 10 reps, 155lbs, with 45 – 1 minute rest between sets. Note: there are many different types of ways to do deadlifts, some are, stiff leg, sumo, and Romanian. I use the Romanian, which consist of bending in the knees, which to me is a safer bet. That’s why I use Romanian.

Seated Row: 3 sets of 10 reps, 135lbs, 30-45 second rest between sets.

Bent Over Barbell Rows: 3 sets of 10 reps, 100lbs, 30-45 second rest between sets.

Bent Over Lateral Raises: 3 sets of 10 reps, 25lbs each arm, 30-45 second rest between sets.

TRICEPS

Triceps Pull downs: For this workout I do something called the pyramid. Start with 40lbs, 10 reps, then immediately after do 30lbs with 10 reps, followed by 20lbs with 10 reps. Take a 45-1 minute rest and then complete another 2 sets. 

Tricep dips: 3 sets of 12-15 reps, using body weight, 30-45 second rest.

Seated Overhead Tricep Extensions: 3 sets of 10 reps, 60lbs, 30-45 second rest.

We have just completed Day 2 of my workout program. Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for my 3rd day workout program, which will consist of , Shoulders, Traps, and Abs. If anyone actually tries out my program, let me know how it goes, I would love to hear your opinions and feedback. Ciao for now!
