My workout thread
I am on the "work out from home" plan as I have a pull up bar, dumbbells, and a treadmill at the house. Plan on adding a rack and oly bar/weights and more (heavier) DBs as I can afford throughout 2014.
My current routine is a 5 workouts over a 7 day rotation with 2 non weight days being a light cardio or a short duration HIIT cardio session.
Lifting goes in this order with Wednesday and Saturdays as off days
Flat DB press
Incline DB Press
flat DB flyes
tricep DB press
Bent over rows
reverse grip bent over rows
Week example is
Sun - Lift day
Mon - Press day
Tue - squat day
Wed - cardio (plyo or interval or treadmill)
Thur - Press day
Fri - Lift day
Sat - cardio or off
Sun - contiue on with press day, Monday - Squat day, etc...
Basically the first exercise each day is 7 sets and the rests are 2 - 5 sets depending on the week (for instance 20 rep weeks are 2-3 sets each remaining exercise, 3-5 rep weeks its 5 sets on each reamining exercise)
From a strength standpoint, seems to be working pretty well. When I started, i had lots of DBs that I rarely used, now I am needing to get heavier DBs (only have to 80 Lbs currently) as I don't have enough weight to do 3-5 reps on some exercises now..
Anyway, I thouht I would start this and try to add/ update with how things are goign on it and when I change my routine (will need to do that soon (been on this one for 4 months now)
