Gym Session :: 5/25/12 & 5/26/12

For 5/25/2012 - Usually on my off days, I like to do some intense cardio, so of course I did a Cardio complex.. soo much better than running on a treadmill for 30 mins..  


Karen was supposed to join me but she changed her plans last minute... 


Anyway - this is what I did for my at home workout - let me tell you ... it was INTENSE! Made me sweat way more than I did just jogging on the treadmill!


I did 3 rounds of this all one right after the other and waiting 90 seconds rest before the next round..


So it looked like this:


Bodyweight Squats - 12 reps
Spiderman Pushups - 12 reps
Jumping Lunges - 12 reps
Plank to Pushups - 12 reps
Mountain Climbers - 12 reps
--- rest 90 seconds

For 5/26/12 - I wasn't going to go to the gym, but decided to re-evaluate my thinking of how bad I want to win this 10k challenge and decided to bust my butt in the gym.  It was a Chest/Back Day so this is what I did.. I made it my goal for this gym session to up the weight on each of my exercises that I usually do.. :)

- Barbell Chest Press
65lbs x 5
65lbs x 5

- Inclined Dumbbell Press
15lbs x 8
20lbs x 8
30lbs x 8 (10lb increase from my usual yay!)

- Pec Flys (machine)
25lbs x 12
40lbs x 12 (at this point I was super pumped hence the big jump lol)

Back

Rackpulls
135lbs x 5
155lbs x 5
175lbs x 5

**also 10lb increase - thankfully.. definitely feel a lot stronger**

Extra's

- Standing Calf raises (machine that you add free weights)
90lbs x 12

Now that I think about it.. my lower back will probably be super sore tomorrow! (after those rack pulls) Hopefully it won't affect my squats! (going for 140-145 lbs for reps tomorrow - wish me luck!)
