This week's plan...

Here's the plan for this week. Some of it has already happened. It's like a crazy fold in the space/time continuum! Wibbly, wobbly, timey, wimey, indeed...


(source)"I had nothing to do with this."



Sunday:
Ring the alarm. Sound the trumpets. I ran. Outside. 2.5 miles. Tracy Morgan dissed me for going slow. But, it did the trick. I remembered that I enjoy running for other reasons besides weight loss. Depending on how the "long" run goes this Saturday, I'll see about the race on the 24th.


Monday:

Back/Rear Delts/Abs- The gym is closed on Monday, so I'll be doing this at home.

1. Wide Grip Pull Ups: 3 sets of 12
2. Cable Pull Downs (Reverse, Close Grip): 3 sets- 15, 12, 10 (will modify using bands, may need more reps).
3. Bent Over Barbell Rows (Underhand Grip): 3 sets- 15, 12, 10
4. Dumbbell Pullover: 3 sets of 12.
5. Dumbbell Reverse Flyes: 3 sets of 12.
6. Full Sit Up : 3 sets of 30 reps.

5 Minute Ab Circuit
- Reverse Crunch, 30 sec.
- Oblique Crunch Left, 30 sec.
- Oblique Crunch Right, 30 sec.
- Bicycle, 30 sec.

Repeat.

Tuesday:
Legs/Calves.
1. Barbell Squats, 3 sets of 10
2. Leg Press, 3 sets of 10
3. Seated Leg Curls, 3 sets of 10
4. Stiff Legged Deadlifts, 3 sets of 10
5. Standing Calf Raises, 3 sets of 10
6. Barbell Lunges, 3 sets of 10.

Replacing last week's Leg Day 1 with this that I used for Leg Day 2 last week. It's so much simpler. And still hard.

Wednesday:
Shoulders/Rear Delts/Abs
1. Dumbbell Overhead Press: 3 sets of 15, 12, 10
2. Dumbbell Upright Row: 1 set of 15, 2 sets of 12

4. Rear Delt Flyes: 18, 15, 12, 10
5. Dumbbell Reverse Flyes: 3 sets of 12
6. Hanging Leg Raise: 3 sets to failure
7. Full Sit Up on Stability Ball: 3 sets of 30
8. Bicycle: 3 sets of 50

Run 2 miles.

Thursday:

2. Cable Flyes: 1 set of 15, 2 sets of 12

Since I work calves on Friday, I elimated the calf sets from this one.

Friday
Workout: Legs, Day 2
1. Barbell Squats, 3 sets of 10
2. Leg Press, 3 sets of 10
3. Seated Leg Curls, 3 sets of 10
4. Stiff Legged Deadlifts, 3 sets of 10
5. Standing Calf Raises, 3 sets of 10
6. Barbell Lunges, 3 sets of 10.

Abs:
2 sets hanging leg raise to failure
2 sets of plank held as long as possible (aim for 60 seconds)
2 sets of 50- Bicycles


Saturday:
Run 6 miles.

I don't know for sure if I'll be ready for the race September 24, but I think I can still get ready for the one in October. Also, I hear it's flat, and the one in September is in hilly downtown Nashville, so naturally, you know which one I'll pick if I have to...

Other goals include eating exactly the way I should, and blogging more than once this week.

How about you? What are your goals for this week?

Great plan. I'm slacking b/c I haven't written mine out yet. Honestly the next 20 days is all about building mileage and improving my general fitness so that I can perform well on the 24th.

I can never raise that level of organisation with my work outs, I like to go where the mood takes me. Unfortunately this means I can slip into a comfort workout.
