Week 6|Day Two

Yesterday night, I was up to no good smashing pizza and drinking alcohol with peers, and so I figured today’s workout wouldn’t be as efficient because of my choices. I did however, found a way to work around the lack of sleep I had in order to do the load amount and meet my rep requirement and that was to take everything slow. While deadlifts and squats are meant to powerful, I had to really use a slower eccentric movement because going at my normal pace wasn’t going to happen with having alcohol in my body the previous night and not getting much sleep. While I don’t regret making my poor decisions the previous night, I knew I had to deal with the consequences and make the most of my workout no matter what it took because when you make decisions; good or bad, you learn to deal with whatever comes your way the best that you can – that’s what I did. I left the gym later than I normally would but I did the reps and met the load.

Nov.14th Workout: 8 Week Program|Week Two|Day Two

Another day, another workout. I upped each one by 2 reps compared to last weeks. You will notice 2-3 new exercises I added because I wanted to add some supersets, and you will notice that I did not do any cardio today due to time but tomorrow, cardio will be implemented. 

 

Legs, biceps, abs, triceps 

Workout:

Superset:

 
  • Barbell back squat: 3 x 10, 135 lb 
  • EZ-bar goodmornings: 3 x 10, 20 lb 

Superset:

  • Barbell Romanian deadlift: 3 x 10, 185 lb
  • DB lunge: 3 x 10, 40 lb

Superset:

  • Barbell standing calf raise: 3 x 10, 115 lb
  • Smith machine vertical leg press: 3 x 10, 255 lb

Superset:

  • Barbell curl: 3 x 10, 50 lb
  • Lying triceps extension: 3 x 10, 30 lb

Superset:

  • Barbell shrugs: 3 x 6, 185 lb
  • hanging leg raises: 3 x 20

Overall today’s back squat felt heavier having to do 10 reps instead of 8 and even my deadlifts were feeling quite heavier compared to last week, hopefully that changes but thankfully I still proved to do 10 reps so that is always a positive. The hanging leg raises are coming easier and less painful, lol. The smith machine vertical leg press I love doing just because it really works those quads and I can do heavier than 255 but I don’t need to go real heavy in order to get what I need from it – highly recommend this exercise if you someone who wants to target the quads.

Nov. 13th Workout|8 Week Program|Week Two|Day One

Chest, back, abs, shoulders

 

Today’s workout consisted of 3 new exercises along with some cardio at the end. I happened to keep everything the same weight as last week, but instead upped the reps by 2. My hope is to continue using this same weight but add 2 more reps next week as well, then eventually up the weight. All this week, you will see how I will increase the rep range by 2 and might add two or 3 new exercises to add some variety to the program.

  • Incline barbell bench press: 3 x 10, 70 lb
  • DB bench press: 3 x 10, 60 lb and 70 lb

Nov.11th Workout|8 Week Program| Week One|Day 5

Saturday was a toughy but in a good way, because I made some good progress! 

 

legs, biceps, triceps

 

Workout:

 
  • Barbell front squat: 3 x 8, 100 lb 
  • Leg press: 3 x 8, 270 lb
  • Seated calf raise: 3 x 8, 100 lb
  • Seated DB curl: 3 x 8, 50 lb
  • Weighted Dip: 3 x 8, 15 lb
  • Leg curl: 3 x 8, 60 lb
  • Leg raises: 3 x 8 each leg

Cardio workout:

  1. Bodyweight squat: 30/45/30/45
  2. Kettlebell swings: 30/45/30/45, 10 kg

Now, for a while I was only able to do 3-5 reps with 100 lb front squat and Saturday I did 3 sets of 8 (it was super hard but I did it), also, it was my first time doing weighed dips and it wasn’t so bad but definitely more challenging  – I am hoping I will be able to give weighted pull ups a go.
