Get Shredded!
Since being re-introduced to the biker lifestyle, I've noticed that most owners of cruiser style bikes of the bigger size - to each their own. I often get odd looks when I tell people that I ride a monster cruiser. They expect me to be a sport bike type. Nope ... just a cruiser.

So to keep up with my dreaded, tattooed, pierced biker image, I thought I'd start a journal where I can ask questions ... possibly get feedback and generally just have a place where I can rant every few months.

I don't really have a program. Way back when I was last on, there was one fellow doing his sets with 10 second intervals - I've adopted this for now.

I do the push-pull ideal. I three for 3 exercises per body part.

So ... with the all-over-the-chart intro, let it begin.

While your taking requests, how about hot wife on the bike. :ohyeah:

I like your simplified workout plan as well. Glad you started a journal so we can all give you a hard time.

Great having you posting your workouts again NT. If I recall, you have Yellowmoomba type pull up strength, which is a big compliment!

hehe ...

He was the one who pushed me to doing those pullups. Doing the 10 rests has me cutting my weights I use down a lot - but I'm enjoying it.

so..... where are the workouts NT??? :paddle:

Yeah, after 21 posts a workout would be nice :)


Workouts ... hmmm. :D

Saturday - pull
deads
135 X 10
225 x 8
225 x 6
225 x 5

hamstring curls
90 x 8
90 x 7
90 x 5

wide grip pull ups
bw x 25 - 3 sets

wide grip row
150 x 8
150 x 7
150 x 7

bent over db rows
80 x 8 - 3 sets

Upright row
70 x 8 - 3 sets

side lateral raises
25 x 8 - 3 sets

seated incline db curls
35 x 10 - 3 sets

standing db curls
45 x 8
45 x 6
45 x 5

Doing the 10 second between sets really gets me in and out of the gym in a hurry. I have no desire to be the biggest/strongest (good thing because I'm a small guy in general - :laugh: ) so I'm there to keep toned.

Not sure if this a good idea, but I change things up to keep my interest up. I was thinking about switching a 10 second push/pull week with a heavy push/pull week - thoughts?

So, the guy here that got me to ready myself for a 8k race, is leaving the company. Chances of him emailing me or keeping in touch with me is slight, so I'll go back to running for the sake of running - possibly once/twice a week.

Saturday, the guy I make fun of (to myself) because of his gym attire and his poser after lifting, comes up out of the blue and askes, what did you think about a bike from the bike show? A little amazed, I said I didn't see it but thought there were some good looking bikes there. And as I usually hear, I got the I've ridden on sport bikes and gone 200+mph and wheelies ... blah blah blah ... now I'm on a Harley and it's not as fast, but faster than all the cruisers out there. I chuckled to myself and let him carry on as I tuned him out and carried on with my workout. He's gonna roll up on the mighty Raider and find himself remembering my license plate.

Yes sir ... a Yamaha Raider. With it lowered, it has a mean stance - love it. As soon as we can get some above 0 temps here, I'm going to fire up the beast.

omerta ... the workouts seem tough to me with the 10 second rest period. I've never been real strong nor big, but this really kicks my ass.

Weekend I tinkered with the fuel controller for my motorbike. Might look at adding Nitrous to it and this is an intricle part. Also started taking pieces off that I had painted and will get them powder coated. Hate chrome, love black ... hehe

How was your weekend?

Oh no much here, just ran errands to all the places that aren't open on sunday's.

Then yesterday was just time to relax and vegetate watching tv since it rained most of the day.

If I ever get a bike I'll be alot like you, I'd be tinkering all the time with this or that.

And I agree powder coating is the way to go. Much more smooth and clean looking. :thumb:
