L-Glutamine and 7-Keto – Legs/Chest/Shoulders

Today is the first day I have tried L-Glutamine and 7-Keto.
I started of the day with 20g Scitec Soy Pro, 20g Body Science L-Glutamine and 200mg Body Science 7-Keto.
After that, I took 20g Scitec Soy Pro and 20g L-Glutamin three times (at lunch and before/after workout), and 100mg 7-Keto twice (before and after workout).

Went to the gym late tonight. There was a lot of people at Sportlife Ullevi, so I had to wait a while before I was able to exercise.

This is the results for tonight:

 

Squat: 87.5 * 10 / 90 * 8 / 90 * 7

Leg Extension: 94,5 * 8 / 96.7 * 8 / 96.7 * 7

After visiting MM Sports, I went to Sportlife Ullevi and did a triceps/biceps/abs/core workout.

It felt good, but I couldn’t find the weight belt, so the Dips exercise didn’t go that well (usually I add 30+ Kg).

Dips:  0 * 30 / 0 * 20 / 0 * 10
Triceps triset: 25 * 6 /  50 * 8 /0 * 20

Crunches with weight plate: 25 * 14 / 25 * 9 / 25 * 6
Plank with leg lift: 132 seconds

In summary a good day and I am ready for an awesome 2012 workout year!!

Activio Indoor Cycling 75 minutes

Today, I attended the weekly Activio indoor cycling class as usual. It lasted for 75 minutes instead of 60 minutes.
The workout contained four intervals lasting for 15 minutes each. We mainly kept the heart rate in the yellow zone with both low and high cadence throughout the intervals.

I felt great and strong and managed to peak into the red zone in the end of all intervals. At most, I peaked at 96 percent of my max heart rate.

Captains of Crush #1

Today, I received my Ironmind Captains of Crush #1 gripper bought from MM Sports.

I am not near closing it as of today, but my aim is to workout my grip 3 days a week to develop strenght.
I would by really cool to eventually be a certified #3 closer.

Stormy weather on the lovely skerry island Tjörn

IMAG0896
Have had a great day today visiting Helén Engblom at the lovely skerry island Tjörn!! (see the pictures).

Just loved the weather today. Standing on the rocks, feeling the whipping ice cold winds making me almost fly away, hearing the surge high waves. It all makes me almost cry that I just have to sail away to the mighty oceans!!!

A big dream of my is becoming a sailing explorer visiting islands around the globe.
