Morning Routine: Diet/Exercise - Days 1 thru 3

Diet/Exercise challenge is a go.  I lifted weights on Monday, did mobility work and stretching on Tuesday, and prepped meals on Wednesday.  Here're the details:

Monday - Strength Training
I plan to loosely follow a workout outlined in Tim Ferriss' The Four Hour Body called Critical (M)Ass: The Kiwi’s Complete A/B Workout.  I say loosely because i haven't yet figured out how i'll accomplish all of these exercises in my home gym, particularly, the swiss ball exercise and the reverse hypers in the "B" portion of the workout.

Anyways, i started slow.  All exercises were performed in order, not resting until the circuit was complete.  I did 2 sets and 10 reps of everything except the kettlebell swings, of which i performed 20 reps.

Dumbbell (DB) front squat to overhead press - 15# dumbbells (limited by left shoulder)

1-arm 1-leg DB row - 10#
Walking lunges with sprinter knee raise - bodyweight
Wide-grip pushups - bodyweight
Kettlebell swings - 35#

Tuesday - Mobility
Took time to stretch and work on my sore areas with a lacrosse ball.  Basically, i roll over areas of my body until i find a sore spot.  When i do, i relax and let the ball penetrate deep into the muscle tissues.  The goal is to get the muscle to fully release itself.  I'm not a doctor, but it works.

Wednesday - Meal Prep

I woke up to find that i hadn't set the dishwasher to run overnight so the crockpot was dirty.  I whined, sulked, and went back to bed and watched the news on tv.  Talk about self-sabotage.  Anyways, i ended up baking the chicken thighs instead of using the slow cooker.  Threw it on some rice.
