Car Show

Today was the Houston Autorama, an event that's held Nov. 24 -28. It has been going on for as long as I remember. It is neat seeing all the old muscle cars from the 60's and 70's.This year they had the Batmobile and the car from The Munsters t.v. series . We went over to look at the cars up for auction this year and they had a decent selection, though nothing really caught my eye.They had several 1970 model Cuda's which now fetch from the 30 to 100,000 dollar range. Unreal.Don't think we'll be getting one soon.Of course the old Camaros, Chevelles, Malibus, Torinos and Mustangs were there. I'd love to have one of each please. We would have to build a 8 car garage and name it the Garage Mahal lol. Oh well, need to win in Vegas or that there lotto I always waste a buck on.
Speaking of muscle cars, let's discuss some muscle here, like trying to make some that is. Today routine was 3 sets at 10 reps or until failure.
Front end and hood routine(chest and back)
Lying pull over:60 lbs
Back shrugs: 45 lbs 2 sets, 47.5 lbs 3rd set
Decline dumbbell press: 62.5 1st set, 2nd set only 6 reps, 60 lbs 3rd set 8 reps. Acouple of tens hit there.
Bent row,palms in: 50 lbs
Seated lat raise: 27.55 lbs
Flies: 1st set 55 lbs , 2nd set 55 lbs 7 reps, 3rd set 52.5 lbs only 6 stinking reps lol. A couple of tens again.
Close hand push ups: 3sets 15 reps
I am started to get to some weights in some areas where I think I'll be at for awhile.It seems I am getting maxed out and without a spotter don't know if I should push anymore. By next week though, it will be time to change the routine, so we'll see. Now the fuel for the muscle.
9am protein shake,apple
11am 3 egg beater omelette, 1 multigrain pancake
2p multigrain power bar, beef jerky
5:30p turkey, potatoes, ff gravy, fruit salad, green bean casserole
8:30 p don't know yet? lol. Haven't gone shopping lately.Oh never mind Susan just found an Eas bar, poor planning on my part today.
Well that's it for today, hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.It's time to go fuel the muscle car... vroom vroom .
