Chariot's journey towards getting back in shape

#1 Postby chariot » Sun Aug 24, 2008 4:32 pm

I started my new workout routine today. I was supposed to only do one set of each exercise for the first week before moving up to three sets during the second week. However, I was so happy to get started that I actually got carried away and forgot I should only do one set, so halfway through my workout I suddenly realized that I had been doing three sets of everything. Oh well, I thought, this seems alright so I may as well just contine doing three sets for the rest of it too.

HERE IS WHAT I DID TODAY:

1) Thigh extension on leg extension machine
3 sets 12 reps 35#

2) Bench press (using dumbells instead of barbell)
3 sets 12 reps 30# (15x2)

3) Dumbbell Upright Row
3 sets 12 reps 16# (8x2)

4)Double-Arm Reverse Row
3 sets 12 reps 16# (8x2)

5) Straight-Arm dumbbell pullover
3 sets 12 reps 15#

6) Standing dumbbell tricept curl
3 sets 12 reps 8#

7) Standing medium grip biceps curl
3 sets 12 reps 5# on EZ curl bar

8) Abdominal crunches
3 sets 10 reps

9) Flat bench leg pull-in
1 set 8 reps

10) Plié squats with dumbbell
3 sets 12 reps 10#

Later on yesterday evening I felt like I'd had a good workout. Now feeling a little stiff.

Yo, yeah I don't see the problem with doing 3 sets right away, good stuff :) You might feel a bit stiff for a day or so, but that'll pass as you get back into it, and it might help you to do a bit of stretching
