My Progress

Ok, I have been on this mission to get back into shape for about 2 weeks.  This Monday I will be starting into my 3rd week.

Here is a brief overview of my workouts for the last week:

Day 1:

Morning: Front Squats: 10 sets of 10, with 1 min rest, 135 lbs.

Afternoon: 10 rounds of interval bag training, 3 min, 30 sec intervals, with a 30 sec break

Day 2:

JC Santana’s Chest Blast routine: all of these exercises with no break.  My chest was on FIRE!  I tried to do 3 sets, with 1.5 min rest.  I failed on the last set.  Here it is:

20 rolling push ups, 20 lateral push ups, 10 close grip push ups and 10 plyo push ups.  (if you want to see this routine, come harass me at the gym)

Standing band twists: 3 sets, 50 each side, 1 min rest

Neck raises with the head strap: 3 sets of 10 reps, 1 min break with a 35 lb plate

Day 3:

4 rounds of interval bag training, 3 min, 30 sec intervals, with a 30 sec break.  Than took a 2 min rest than…

5 rounds of interval bag training, 3 min, 30 sec intervals, with a 30 sec break

Day 4:

Deadlifts: 10 sets, 5 reps, 1 min break.  I forgot to wright down my weight, but for the last 5  sets I did 315 lbs.  But I bonked at 3 reps for the last set 🙁

I had to run around and do some errands, but I came back to finish my work out in the afternoon:

Weighted Chin Ups: 10 sets, 5 reps, 1 min rest, with a 45 lb plate on my belt

Reverse Dips: 2 sets only, drop sets though.  the 1st set was with 90 lbs, go to failure, than drop to 45 lbs.  Rest 1 min than start at 135 lbs to failure, drop to 90 lbs to failure, than 45 lbs to failure.

Mind you my whole body is toast!!!  I started off at 152 lbs, and after 2 weeks I am hovering around 158 lbs.  I decided that one of my “functional” test is my ability to still do 10 rounds of interval training on the bag (10 rounds of 3 min, 30 sec intervals and 30 break between rounds).
