Gridiron Challenge: Workout Update 1

November 8, 2012

Today was UB workout day. I was out of town on Monday so I did my fit test on Tuesday, and began my workouts today (Wednesday). Here is the breakdown:

Supersets (3 sets, 8-12 reps each set)

–          Bench press on Smith machine(85 pounds, 10 reps)/Bent over row (60 pounds, 12 reps)

–          Cable chest fly (10 pounds, 12 reps)/Seated Row (70 pounds, 10 reps)

–          Reverse cable fly (5 pounds, 10 reps)/Arnold press (15 pounds, 10 reps)

–          Triceps pull down (30 pounds, 12 reps first set; 35 pounds, 8 reps second set; 35 pounds, 10 reps third set)/Biceps hammer curl (15 pounds, 10 reps)

Core (3 sets, 20 reps each set – 10 reps on left, 10 reps on right)

–          Alternating diagonal crunch (arms and legs fully extended)/Swimmers

Tabata (4 minute rounds)

1) Burpee (no push up)

2) Kettlebell swing (20 pounds)

3) Knee hugger jacks

4) Kettlebell diagonal swing (15 pounds)

The focus today was building strength, endurance, and power. After this workout, my arms were definitely tired, and even though some of the weights were light, it felt heavy to me. I was pushing myself. I would love to hear how everyone else is doing with this challenge, so leave a post. Let me know if you have any great Fall food recipes, fun party ideas, tough workout ideas…and so on. Be on the lookout for an upcoming post on acorn squash!!! Bring it on Fall 🙂
