Fit On Tracker: Progress Report 55

Workout Date:  Tuesday, February 5, 2013
Time: 5:45pm-8:05pm

Warm Up: Calf Stretch, Wrist Stretch

Target Areas:

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.

Additional Machines:
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.  

Cardio/Cool Down:
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.

Sounds like a good sound workout to me.
