Hardest workout of 2012 so far:

2 hour bike ride - 30 minute warm up, then 15 minutes of lactate threshold intensity with a 10sec sprint every minute, recover for 10 mins, 20 minute lactate threshold intervel, 30 minute ride home

Then went to the gym for 3 sets of squats, leg press, bench press, dead lifts, hamstring curls, and push ups.

It was a good day.

My toughest workout has got to be the first workout. Actually getting up and motivating myself to do so was hard-but i felt 100 million percent better afterwards!

My hardest workout this year so far has been:
LYING LEG PRESS - 50X300lbs, 50x310lbs, 50x320lbs!!!
STANDING CABLE SQUAT AND ROWS - 20x110lbs x 3 sets
SIDE STEP HOP OVERS ON BOSU BALL - 30x7lbs x 3 sets
DB BENT OVER ROWS - 30x21.25lbs x 3 sets
MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS WITH GLIDERS - 50 reps x 3 sets
DB CRUNCHES ON BOSU - 50x25lbs x 3 sets
STEP UPS ON BOX 20 ES- 20x21.25lbs x 3 sets
SPIDERMAN PUSHUPS - 50reps x 3 sets

STEPPER - 30 mins
BIKE - 30 mins
I have done this program before, but not at the intensity that I did this day. The most special thing about this workout (and I always return to previous memories) was that 7 months ago, I could not lift more than 30lbs on the leg press. And even so - I was in pain. And yesterday, I pressed up to 320lbs. I am a dog lover. My trainer said to me - think about lifting a great dane. I told her this is like TWO great danes. When I got off the leg press, I was sweating and my legs felt like rubber. But I kept on goin! Also, my abs are certainly feeling the after math of my workout yesterday more than ever!
Happy 2012!

Toughest workout for me this year so far was the 20 mile run last Sunday, in Vibram Bikilas rather than regular running shoes. That run was the furthest I've ever ran in my life, certainly the furthest I've ever ran in the Vibrams, and I ran right the way through to mile 18 (3 hrs) before I took the only walk break of the run - yet another PR for me :) Total run time was 3 hrs 25 minutes with an overall 10:15 pace. Man, it felt good!

My toughest workout this year would definately have to be Legs last week.
As i work split shifts at work, i tend to hit the gym in between shifts. This day was not only mad busy, i was kept behind an extra hour and stood on my feet working in a kitchen.

So i get to the gym totally dehydrated, hungry and in need of a nap and not a Killer Leg workout. I had a few minutes rest and my pre workout meal before getting on with it, i skipped my warm up as i was already on fire.

All the weights i lifted felt twice as heavy as usual and at one point i actually got off the leg press to double check i hadn't put the wrong plates on.
Also as i was late in the gym it was approaching peak time so most machines were in use, looking at the clock knowing i have to be back at work soon, the pressure was on.

In my mind i tried to forget everything and just concentrate and focus on the workout, i did actually do quite well even though my energy levels were low.

After finishing i realised i had half an hour to get showered, changed, eat and back to work. As i hobbled out of the gym with throbbing quads and in need of a hot bath and an early night i thought to myself that was seriously hard work but also the most rewarding workout because i could have quite easily given the gym a miss that day.

Thinking back on that day reminds me how powerful the mind is and i think on that day my approach and positive attitude towards that workout is what got me through it.

My toughest workout of 2012 so far has to be the last leg workout I did. (Copied and pasted from my training log here on VBB).

Day 20/84 - Week3, Day 6
Legs

20 Minute Cardio before and after lifting
Barbell Twists (before and after lifting) - 150 Each Side (300 total) with a 15lb bar on my shoulders

Leg Extensions
10x75
10x90
DROP SET - 20x120, 15x90, 15x75, 15x60, 20x45, 20x30
Notes: This tore my legs up! Such an awesome/painful burn after this. Had to walk straight legged for a sec afterwards.

Squats
10x45
10x65
15x95
15x115
15x125
Notes: This was supposed to be my last workout of the day but the leg press machine and traditional leg press were both in use so I did squats instead. The plan called for doing 30 rest pause reps instead of the 15 I did. I decided to play it safe and just knock out a very strong 15 on my 3 working sets instead of potentially hurting myself. Just over a year ago I was repping out 225 no problem. That's what happens when you fall off working out.

Lying Hamstring Curls
10x45
20x60
15x75
15x75
Notes: The 75 just seemed heavier than usual today. Probably should have done another set at 60 or just gone up a smaller amount.

Leg Press
20x75
20x75
30x135 (rest pause)
30x150 (rest pause
30x165 (rest pause)

My toughest workout..was starting it all...and continuing to do something every day.
I have managed weights every second day...and on the alternate days I walk/jog at least 40 minutes...one day even made it 12k...and still felt great. I managed weights today...along with a great walk with a friend after...and I am still full of energy..must sleep now though:)

Even though it has been hard....it's has also been easy.
Thanks goes to Claudia...who has given me the best advice on proper eating for fueling my body.

I have lost over 2 pounds...gained a mountain of energy...and I will win the battle forever...

Thank you Claudia!! and to this forum...I was totally surprised at the great amount of energy I have, the positive energy I feel, and how grounded I feel as a person!!
