Friday morning and I managed to drag my a$$ out of bed. It was quite a feat actually as I’d been kept awake most of the night with my poor Mrs who has a really bad cough. I could have called off this morning, but I was determined to do my weights workout, so I got up and was in the gym for just after 630.
Here’s what I did.
Warm up on bike: 5 mins, 1.2k.
Lower Weights: 40 minutes:
STEP UP WITH WEIGHTS: 3 x 12, 2 x 12kg
SINGLE LEG DEADLIFT: 6 x 12, 2 x 12kg
JUMP SQUAT: 3 x 12, 8kg medicine ball
ROMANIAN DEADLIFT: 3 x 12, 2 x 12kg
SHRUGS: 3 x 12, 2 x 12kg
POWER JUMPS: 3 x 30
LEG PRESS: 3 x 12, 220lbs (oooooft!)
CALF PRESS: 3 x 12, 220lbs
LATERAL PULL DOWN: 3 x 12, 60lbs
TRICEP BENCH DIPS: 3 x 12
It was good to mix it up a bit and introduce a few plyometric exercises in there as a third exercise in 2 of the supersets. I might do that more often.
It’s going to be a quiet weekend for me…I was thinking of running tomorrow morning (or do circuits), but I’m going to give my legs a rest and have a rest day instead. J Then I’m meeting my niece and nephews on Sunday for a good day out. 🙂
