Another 38 Minutes!

Exercise Shoulders, Motivation No Comments »

Time is the one thing we all wish we had more of and the one thing you can’t get back.

Today I got in another 38 minute work out day two of the 3 in 1 workout. See below for details of the workout. I did switch up the beginning lift to bench press instead of push ups with resistance band. The bench press to me is a staple of working out; I know that there is some that say you don’t need to do bench press. Well to me one of the easiest ways to see that you are getting stronger over time is when you go from lifting 175 to 225. I also like to lift consistently when it comes to heavy weight. What I mean by this is lifting a challenging weight the same number of reps for x sets. For example in today’s workout I did 5 reps of 225 for 4 sets a total of 20 reps at 225 with a minute rest between each set. I could have push the first set to 8 rep but that would have tapped me out for the other 3 sets. Buy going with a lower number I was able to more reps over a greater number of sets. Instead of burning myself out on the first set. This method has helped me increase my overall strength. Remember different things work for different people. Give it a try for yourself. I always say that the enemy of change is the monotony of repetition mix it up! Below is a shot from this morning’s workout, the 90lbs of steel shot.
