So I did something yesterday i don’t normally do and that’s do a resistance workout 3 days in a row.
Why did I do it?
No idea. Just felt ‘the flow’ so I did it.
Ordinarily I would do a bodyweight cardio/fusion conditioning workout, but I felt like doing something else…and my chest and upper back are mega sore today, which is always a nice feeling :)
I primarily focused on doing chest/back in a pressing and vertical pull since the day before I did dips and rows (which are opposite movements) along with some extra emphasis on the upper back at the end…and some burpees!
Here’s the rundown…
1A) DB Chest Press w/SLOW negative - 8 reps
1B) Chin-up - 6 reps
1C) 1-Arm KB Front Squat - 6 reps each arm
2A) Close Grip Decline Push-up - 10 reps
2B) Neutral Grip Pulldown - 8 reps
2C) Battling Ropes - 30 reps
I was feeling pretty good after those two circuits, so continued on with a little upper back/bicep work for a couple high rep sets.
3A) DB Bicep Curl - 15 reps
3B) DB Rear Fly - 15 reps
3C) Shrug - 15 reps
I did two sets of that little devilish circuit and finished up with this little gem…
4A) Jumping Jack - 50 reps
4B) Burpees - 10 reps
I did that for 4 sets non-stop and it
sucked was awesome. I really, really limited rest throughout the whole workout which isn’t always smart if you’re concerned with overall strength gains or muscle gain, but I’m not. Right now I’m working just to work. Pushing, pushing, pushing and it feels awesome.
I’ll increase the rest periods next fall when I’ll try to gain a little weight, but not now…not when summer is coming!
