Week Six|Day One

Today’s workout went well overall. I realized based on other days, I have increases in loads and decreases, but I have been trying to be consistent so I can see where my strengths and weaknesses lie. For example I can DB bench press 80 lb for 8 reps but today, I could not do it for 10 reps, so I went down 10 lb in order to hit 10 reps. I don’t mind lessening up the load if it means I hit my reps clean and full ROM. 

Workout:

  • Incline barbell bench press: 3 x 10, 75 lb
  • DB bench press: 3 x 10, 70 lb
  • Wide grip pull up: 3 x to failure
  • Bentover barbell row: 3 x 10, 75 lb
  • Seated DB shoulder press: 3 x 10, 50 lb
  • DB side lateral raise: 3 x 10, 30 lb
  • Sit ups: 3 x 20

Sprints:(3x)

  1. 30 seconds
  2. 45 seconds
  3. 1 minute
 
 

Week Five|Day Four = No Cardio Necessary

Opposite day! no cardio 🙂 but my legs are still sore from yesterday, so thankfully today was an upperbody day!

 

Workout:

Superset:

 
  • Barbell bench press: 3 x 8, 75 lb
  • DB front raises: 3 x 10-12, 20 lb

Superset:

  • Incline DB bench press: 3 x 8, 70 lb
  • Bentover DB flyes: 3 x 10-12, 30 lb

Superset:

  • Close grip pull up: 3 x to failure
  • DB shrugs: 3 x 10-12, 70 lb

Superset:

  • Cable low row: 3 x 8, 130 lb
  • Barbell upright row: 3 x 8, 60 lb

Superset:

  • Military press: 3 x 8, 60 lb
  • smith machine bentover row: 3 x 10-12, 75 lb
 
  • Floor crunches: 3 x 20
 

If I am going to be honest, the barbell upright rows were hell today, I mean 60 lb doesn’t sound like a lot of weight but I was feeling them. I have also noticed I am WAYY better at close grip pull ups vs wide grip, anyone else?

Today’s workout! Week 5 Arrived

The start of week five today and I will admit that I noticed a decrease in strength during some of my lifts – which would be expected when I miss two days worth of workouts and haven’t been eating the best foods for recovery either. Even my sprints were slow, but I did happen to lose 3 pounds. Hoping that tomorrow’s leg day isn’t as much of a struggle as today was. 

 

Workout:

 
  • Incline barbell bench press: 3 x 8, 75 lb
  • DB bench press: 3 x 8, 80 lb
  • Wide grip pull up: 3 x 8
  • Bentover barbell row: 3 x 8, 75 lb
  • Seated DB shoulder press: 3 x 8, 60 lb
  • DB side lateral raise: 3 x 8, 40 lb
  • sit ups: 3 x 20

Cardio:

  1. sprints: 30 seconds
  2. sprints 45 seconds
  3. sprints: 1 minute 

I did this 2 times for 100 m 

 
 

Week Four|Day Three Wednesday Nov 29th

Instead of my usual CrossFit workout, I had to change it up because I was PMSing (usually I don’t workout at all during this time) but wasn’t feeling too bad this time round and decided to find a workout to cater to it that I could do at low intensity. This workout I created was good, I had no extra pain during or afterwards and still put in a decent amount of effort. This probably won’t always work, but thankfully it did this time.

  • Plie squats: 4 x 10-12, 25 lb

Superset:

  • Push ups: 3 x 10-15
