Do More —

I could have very well stopped and been complacent with reps, after progressing but instead I decided, to DO MORE because I CAN. Why be complacent if I want results. 

 

Today’s workout reminded me, I can do it and I will do it. 

 

Warm up:

 
  • Leg press: 4 x 25, 60 lbs
  • Standing DB calf raises: 4 x 25, 40 lbs
  • DB romanian deadlifts: 4 x 25, 30 lbs

Today’s workout was heavy session with squats & deadlifts 

 

Workout:

  • Sumo deadlift: 5 x 2-3, 205 lbs (90% 1RM) and 3 x 1-2, 225 lbs (100 1RM) BUT I know I am ready to hit a new PR with my max, because 225 felt light. 
  • Barbell back squat (low bar, wide stance): 5 x 2-3, 180 lbs (90% 1RM) I decided to push 3 reps with this weight and it wasn’t easy, but after hitting three, I aimed for 5 reps and CONQUERED 🙂 Like my deadlift, my squat will be ready to hit a new 1RM soon as well, I didn’t max out on squats today though. 

Tri-set:

  • Walking EZ bar lunges: 6 x 5-8, 70 lbs
  • DB step ups: 6 x 5-8, 70 lbs
  • DB plie squats: 6 x 5-8, 50 lbs

cardio…

  • Sprints: 10 times, for 30 seconds each with a 45 second break between. 
  • Stair stepper: 10 minutes, level 5

P.S i used this company’s gel (Sweet Sweat) is the company and it did some good 🙂
