The gym exercise chronicles

Today was the first day I took some index cards with me to the gym to keep a record of my weight settings and repetitions for any progress.
I do about eleven or twelve different exercises but not all the same day. I use to rotate back and forth on what exercises from one gym visit to the other when I went to the gym about one year ago. What ever strikes my fancy at the time and the availability of the piece of equipment I want to use.

Today I did these.

Lateral raise: 80 lbs 10 reps___60 lbs 20 reps
Seated leg curl: 70 lbs 10 reps___55 lbs 40 reps
Bat swing: 40 lbs 20 reps right side, 20 reps left side
Hip abductor: 72 lbs, 50 reps squeeze in___50 reps push out
Diverging lat pull down, seated & knees braced: 80, 70, 60, lb settings 10 reps each___50 lbs 20 reps
Sci fit machine: 10 minute ride at level 5

Fridays weigh out at gym with clothes on Green laugh211 pounds.
Weight goal 185 pounds.
My pants feel I need to drill another notch in my belt. Starting to feel a little loose again.
My goal is mesomorph Big Grin

Probably will only be doing a Friday report of my weekly gym activities in my blog. I only go to the gym on weekdays and sometimes not every day.

I was curious what my weight was when I was in the military. When I was discharged my weight was listed at 195 pounds.
I will be setting an age old record if I get down to 185 pounds. May need to adjust that lower weight goal of 185 pounds a tad higher. Maybe in the 190s range.
Get down to that weight I will feel young again.

When i finished basic training i weighed 180 at 6' 2" by the time i was 26 i was 240 lbs of solid mussel. drilling well points for the subway 12 hr night shift eating all high protein foods.

When i turned 50 my doctor told me to get back down to 180 lbs. At first i was reluctant as i felt good at 240 lbs but the mussel was all but gone and mostly fat then.

So i started on portion control lost some weight by the time i was 65 down to 218 lbs started geo fitness at the local veterans clinic and am now down to 203 lbs if i get down to 180 lbs i'll have to buy a whole new wardrobe of clothes lol
