Workout Date: Tuesday, February 5, 2013
Warm Up: Calf Stretch, Wrist Stretch
Machine Used-Chest Press: I did 2@70, and 1@85. The 85 felt a bit strenuous. I’m thinking perhaps I should have given my muscles one more day to recover from my workout on Saturday. I will see what happens next go round.
Machine Used- Lat Pulldown (fixed): I did 1@70 and 2@85.
Machine Used-Rear Deltoid: I did 1@50, 1@55, and 1@60. The experiment is still going well.
Biceps (bar): I did 1@40, 1@50, and 1@65. I really felt the ache when attempting to do 65, adding further believe that I should have waited one more day, but I tried to get through as much as I could.
Machine Used-Arm Press: I did 1@100, 1@110, and 1@130.
I opted to use two machines: Leg Press and the Hip AD-ductor.
Leg Press: I did 1@80, 1@90, and 1@110. The attempted 70 pound phase out going so far, so good.
Hip Adductor: I did 1@115, 1@130, and 1@150.
Ab Crunch (upright): I did 2@60, 1@70, and 1@80. I did have to wait a good twenty minutes before I could get on this machine as well as the Torso Rotation.
Torso Rotation: I did 2@95, 2@100, and 2@110. My body seems to adjust to this a lot better than taking out the 95 pound completely. I will re examine in another two weeks and then try it again.
Ab Coaster: 3 sets of 20 with 35lbs. resistance.
Elliptical: Foothills (Level 2)—15 minutes + 3 minutes (cool down)= 18 minutes
Bike: I decided on Around The World (Level 2) for 25 minutes. Adding in the 5 minutes for cool down, it brings the total to 30 minutes.
Treadmill: Random (Level 2; speed 3.2)—15 minutes + 3 minutes (cool down)= 18 minutes
Total Cardio Workout: 50 minutes (not including cool down); 66 minutes (with cool down)
Usually I still feel pretty invigorated after a workout. This time around, I felt a bit more drained. Perhaps for next workout, I’ll focus on mainly doing lower body. I didn’t fully realize my muscles for the upper body may have needed more time until I started attempting to work out and having major difficulty on weights which would normally give me resistance but not strain.
We will see what happens.
