I’ve recently started a new weekly workout ritual. Since Mike and I hardly ever see each other we’ve decided to incorporate a Wednesday morning gym session together. Here’s how it works: Each week we alternate coordinating the work outs, so one week I lead the circuit, and the next week he leads. It always has to be a lower body circuit since Mike is notorious for only working out upper body (Yes he’s that guy at the gym who only works out chest & bi’s <– annoying!) and you have to keep the heart rate fairly high.
Today was my turn to lead so I decided to make it nice and easy since he’s basically a leg rookie, and is jealous of these bad boys…….
Treadmill Warm up:
|0:00 – 1:00||3|
|2:00 – 3:00||5|
|3:00 – 4:00||5.5|
|5:00 – 6:00||6|
|7:00 – 8:00||6.5|
|8:00 – 9:00||6|
|9:00 – 10:00||5.5|
|11:00 – 12:00||3.5|
All of these exercises were super-setted to speed up the pace & keep the heart rate up:
|Dead Lifts||45 lb Barbell||3||15|
|Box Jumps w/ squat||8 lb db’s||3||20|
|Sit ups w/ fly’s||8 lb db’s||3||15|
Mike did the same exact work out as me, but his weights were a lot higher, and his reps were a lot lower than mine. Today was a great start to a new tradition! I’m excited to see what kind of torture he’ll be putting me through next Wednesday!
