Manuels training log!

#1 Postby Manuel » Sun Dec 07, 2008 12:47 pm

Hi there, welcome to my training journal.

At this time I've three goals:
- reduce my weight (about 8-10 kg = 22lbs)
- to get a grip on my RSI-problem
- getting more muscles ;-)

My English isn't the best, so please correct me :-)

I'm doing this program 3-4 days/week, but I'll need some other training progam - it's too time expensive. In January/February I'll just have time during the weekends.
Would be great if anyone has an idea, how I can keep up my state during these two months.
During the weekends, I'll have maaaaaany time, so i can have a big program :-)

Today I tried to train with more weights and less reps.
So let's see...

Starting from now the weights will be in lbs only.

Lat Machine: 12x88, 12x99, 9x110, 11x99, 10x88
Cable - Bent Over Tricpes Ext.: 3x12x46
Butterfly Machine: 20x44, 3x11x55
Vert. Chest Press: 15x77, 3x11x88, 11x77, 2x11x66

Cable - Bent Over Tricpes Ext.: 11x46, 2x15x38.5, 2x13x38.5

Dumbbell - Biceps Curl: 20x22, 11x27.5, 11x27.5, 8x33 (too much weight), 11x27.5 (alternating...)
Dumbbell - Shoulder Raise Straight Arm: 20x11, 13x16 (this one was bad for my back, so i stopped this exercise soon), 11x13

Butterfly Machine: 2x15x66, 2x15x55
Vert. Chest Press: 2x11x66, 11x55

about 90 minutes...

My first workout with more weights and less reps was very chaotic. I don't know if my workout plan is good!? I hope you'll help me a little bit to get a better one.
This was day 1, day 2 I thought I'll do the stomach and back, day 3 legs(?) I don't know...

If you work out Sat, Sun, plus one other day (even for 45 min), you should be fine.
You can follow a 3 split and see good results.
