In a sort of odd way, I find that I kind of like sore muscles. Reassurance that they may be growing.

Ab wheel works.

Does anyone use an Ab Wheel? The wheel with the two handles on it? Just wanted to know if anyone got results with one?

@David
Floor press is what you're doing. They're good, but really 25lbs isn't much. Push-ups are 2/3 your bodyweight. More if you do them with feet elevated. Find a good push up and dips progression. It'll take your farther than your dumbbells will.

Do some man makers though.

Before I got my tri-bench the renegade row with push up used to kick my ass.  However it's not just chest, it's chest, core, and upper back.

Shane will most likely have some better suggestions, but you should try it.  It's a great exercise.

My heaviest bar bells are 25lb a piece. I don't have a bench press. I lay on the floor, and do similar moves like bench press and open butterflys. Any advice on another way to get a good chest workout with results?

Clinton and David,

I let my mind wander on every run.  Over time my pace improves.  I'm going more for distance right now not time.  If you're new to jogging or running then don't worry about time or pace, worry about running the whole distance, improving your distance, and getting your body into shape.  The time for timing or pacing yourself is later when you've reached your distance goal and can run it without stopping.  Then work your pace up by listening to cadence music and trying to keep time with the music.  Or get a military cadence track and use that to pace yourself.

Comment by Clinton R. Ausmus on September 28, 2015 at 2:25pm

David, when I'm not into it, I crank up the music and just let my mind work on all the issues I'm having in my daily life.

You can't let pace, time, HR, reps, etc. rule every run. Sometimes you just need to take a break and let your mind go.

New to the group. Going into my 6th. week of jogging, three times a week. Gets tough to do. Sometimes my mind is just not into it. But I know its good for me. I am in for 10 weeks total, so I have 4 weeks to go. Any advice is welcome.
