It has been QUITE a long time since I logged in here! Looking back I was either benching wrong or I added the weight together. I am definitely stronger now than I was then.
Since my last post I have been let go (along with 20 other teachers) due to budget issues and me being the last hired from my job as a public school art teacher, got a new job, moved from Ohio to the Capital Region and am at an amazing point in my life!
My current regimen is 6 days: Cardio, Upper Body, Cardio, Legs, Cardio, Upper Body, Rest I typically throw abs in on Cardio days, then switch Upper and Lower body the following week.
Upper Body Ladder
-----Assisted pullups 12, 10, 8, 6, 12
-----High rope row 12
-----Dumbbell bench 12, 10, 8, 6, 12
-----Dumbbell fly 12
-----Skull-crushers 12, 10, 8, 6, 12
-----Over-head Tricep Press 12
Cardio (typically HIIT Running ladder)
-----Barbell Squat 10, 8, 6, 4, 10
-----Barbell Deadlift 12, 10, 8, 6, 12
-----Standing Calf Raise 12, 10, 8, 6, 12
-----Seated Calf Raise 12
Also trying to focus more on nutrition. Cut out eating straight bread/rice/grains for two months to support my boyfriend who is participating in a fitness challenge. I'm still including Clif bars and Clif Builder bars, because I don't run well on low calories. Eventually I will start making my own, but I'm a slave to their convenience. Oh, and Vega Sport protein powder. Everything else is whole food/homemade. Logging my food in "My Fitness Pal", I was shocked at how high my carbs still are (even on days with no clif bars and very little fruit). Not that it's a problem, just wondering what it would have looked like when I had a bagel and vegan cream cheese addiction...
