Back and Tricep day: 45 minutes on the treadmill for this week. It was of course very hard this morning to do it since I did Legs yesterday. Felt like I was treading water. When it got to be too much, I backed off and just power walked for a couple of minutes and then started back up to the 12min/mile pace. I did have to change treadmills because apparently the one I was on couldn't handle the change in pace and just shut off. I went to the next one, and it was a little easier to jog on that one. Weird
. I think I found a new favorite treadmill to use from now on.
Hammer Strength Back Row: 90/25warmup, 140/15, 180/15, 230/10
Cable Lat Pulldown: 100/15, 110/15, 120/10
Cybex Back Row: 137.5/15, 150/12, 162.5/8
Cybex Pull up: 15/12, 14/10
Hyperextension: 35/25 x 4 superset with (these were easy to do after doing deadlifts and making my lower back so sore. May alternate hypers with deadlifts).
Shrug Machine: 230/25 X 4
Rope Tricep Pushdown: 5/15, 6/10, 7/4 (ouch with the rope hurting the forearm on the flare on the way down).
V-bar Cable Tricep Overhead Extension: 5/15, 6/12, 7/5
Bench Dips: Bodyweight/25 X 4
Some weights were the same, others were not up to the last time I used this exercise routine. Not to worry, I think I can get back there. Forearm is still a factor in some pulling exercises (not in the pushing ones). Made the 2 pounds loss for this week, still 170. Next two are up next, and hopefully I can keep the weights up with all this cardio. I think I am going to mix up the routine of what body parts to lift on what days. Some parts need more rest with cardio in the mix (namely Legs. Owwie!).
