Back To The Gym & Training Plan

After a week off, which felt like FOREVER, I was so excited to get back into the gym today! I decided to write out a plan to follow rather than just do whatever, so here was what I did for today's upper body workout:

1)Snatches: 3x6 w/65lbs (just went light on these today)
2)1 arm overhead DB press: 3x6 w/30lbs, 1x9 w/25lbs
3a)Dips: 3x8
3b)Neutral grip pullups: 8-7-6-5
4)Hanging leg raises: 4x8 (I forgot how much I hated these!!! UGH. Not fun.)
*Incline treadmill sprints: 6 x 15 seconds*

  2. love this post and thanks for sharing your workouts! i usually write my workout the morning of. i haven't been doing the same workouts for 4 - 6 weeks like i have done in the past. instead they change weekly. not huge changes, just slight ones. your training program looks awesome though! how long will you be following these four workouts for? they seriously look so great!

    1. Thanks! I like to stick with something for 4-6 weeks, with maybe make a few tweaks from week to week.
