Welcome to the new Hive, Trbrat!

You can find your old profile here: https://hive.darebee.com/member/29685-trbrat75
and your old check-in thread here: https://hive.darebee.com/logs/322638-trbrats-training-log-ready-to-get-rugged

The URLs got changed, and you cannot interact with the old content anymore. But it's still there (for now).
I see they said the old content could be copied, how would I do that so I dont lose it? Its almost like a diary of sorts to me...

Hello everyone! Glad to read ya'll again!
I am pondering another obstacle race (Rugged Maniac) next year (Aug 23')

A lot has happened...i cant seem to catch a breath before I'm underwater again...
But, I'm still 'rising'...or, at the least, hovering lol

The easiest way is to 'select all' the entire page and copy it into a document program. Edit it from there. It's all manual, unfortunately, but possible. I hope that helps.
I assume that's for each page, right? Not that I would copy all 148 pages, but that still sounds daunting lol

Made it to the gym, got a trainer. Now I have someone to hold me accountable until I get back in the swing of things, and hopefully learn a lot too! On the other hand, I am afraid this wont be what I was expecting. Only way to find out is do it though, right?

My first session with my trainer was last Sat(11/17). Unfortunately I had a bout of food poisoning a few days prior so I was still pretty wiped out from that. (I just realized I never logged that workout...oops). But I still went and put in the work. The workout consisted of arms and abs training. I dont remember much about the arm portion(I remember working my shoulders and using dumbbells lol), but the abs consisted of mountain climbers on an unsteady surface(im sure I'll learn the terminology eventually lmao) some sort of cross body crunches. and twists with weight...idk, that seems like a month ago now when its only been a week. :smash:

11/26 - Leg day: Started on the treadmill, just a walk, until time for my appt, so 8 mins to get the heartrate up.
learned how to stretch by using foam roller...so far, not a fan. It hurt some areas around my hip flexors. I will probably have bruises.
1A - Hamstring Curls 3x12 (not sure of the weight as she set it but i believe it was somewhere around 35-40lbs)
2A - Bulgarian Split Squats 3x8e
2B - DB Hip Thrust 3x12 -20lb
3A - DB Single Leg RDL 2x12 - 10lb
3B - Bodyweight Curtsy Lunge 2x12

Cut the sets short on the last 2 as she could tell i was pretty well done.

Getting started again is always the hardest. Especially going into a new place with workouts I am not familiar with and using equipment I dont know how to use. She has given me some options on home workouts in case the gym is too much for me

I was tired and my trainer forgot to bring me my w/o sheet, or text me it(and she never responded to my message about it). I did legs with her on sat, sun was a free day. I ran into her at the gym...she says do legs again...uh ok I got to make my own so:

Leg Extensions - 45lb 3x12 ( I was straining a bit)
Leg Press -100Lb 3x15 (almost too light, almost...)
Seated Leg Curl - 45lb 3x15 (feel strain behind the knees)
Inner Thigh machine - 70lb 3x12 (weird lol)

ah geez..why didnt i log the weights last time gah
