Day 8 Training, well…..
Ok, so I haven’t spent an awful lot of time talking about the impact of training on the schedule that I have been or how it is impacting me. This is mainly because I have actually found it very easy to ease into this first week.
Until today, I will be honest I hit a bit of a brick wall with training today and I need to take a hard look to address what went wrong and look at how to improve for the next few weeks.
I have a feeling that I entered today’s training without enough calories in my system and after a long day at work. I finished the session and got through it, but it was punishing! I was gassed on the final cardio and even cut it short to 7mins jogging vs yesterday where I was happy to go on for 40mins+.
I am going to write a separate blog post to go more in depth on this subject, but for now, I will highlight my workout:
Treadmill Jogging – 13mins Warmup
Seated Barbell Military Press – 5 Sets / 10 Reps – 15kg / 15kg / 20kg / 25kg / 25kg
Side Lateral Raise – 4 Sets / 10 Reps – 5kg / 10kg / 5kg / 10kg / 12.5kg
Upright Barbell Row – 3 sets / 10 Reps – 15kg / 20kg / 25kg
Situp – 30 reps
Airbike – 5mins – 40secs normal pace 20 secs sprint (this is still killing me!)
Treadmill Jogging – 7mins – was going for 13mins but was pretty much dead by this point…
This was far from an easy workout – however, I’m not sure that it was a more intense than my other workouts.
Time to refuel and check nutrition. Tomorrow is an active rest day, so something very light before legs on Wednesday.
