Nathan's HIT Training

EDIT: Bottom of page one on will be all HIT (High Intensity Training). I'll be doing some full negative workouts as well from time to time.

I just got an app on my ipod for tracking my workouts, so from now on I'll be posting my workouts in here. Food log to come soon!

Good workout today. Shorter than usual, and my workout buddy had a sore back so he couldn't go, so I didn't get a chance to try some higher weights. The weighted crunches sure are brutal though, haha.

Rather than do full body again I did Arms and Chest. Tomorrow I'm doing Legs and Back. Hopefully this summer I can start a split routine, but right now during school I don't have the time.

Really short and sweet today. Workout partner couldn't make it again. Sick. It's funny that he's always ill or sore, and I never am. I keep myself from coughing "go vegan" under my breath when he calls because he's sore or sick. He doesn't throw steaks at me though so I keep things civil.

Workout felt good. I know I could have done more, but I'm happy that my squat numbers are going up. I'll probably still stick with full body twice a week though, since I don't like sticking to one or two body parts. I like killing every part of my body every time, haha.

I'm going to try to pull all the other numbers up (like the row and lat pulldowns). I can't wait to see my progress a year from now.

Kg or pound?

i wanted to ask that, too. but i guess pounds, right? the squats in kg would be too good to be true i guess. ;)

Everything is in pounds unless otherwise stated. I wish some of the numbers were kg, haha.

Dartmouth is in Nova Scotia, Canada. It's okay, but most people still don't know what vegans are here, haha.

The app I have is GymBuddy. Works pretty well. Tons better than iFitness.

This was Tuesday's workout. Forgot to edit/upload the log. I used to log after I finished, now I'm logging during working out. Much easier. I was afraid carrying my ipod around would be bothersome, but it's not. The next one is in order (this may not be) and tracked correctly.

I did HIT today (from the book Heavy Duty) and it was BRUTAL. I went faster than I would have liked, but it was good for a first run. Next time I'll hit the same weights (for most of it) and focus on controlling it through the full range of motion.

Pullovers
25 x 12
35 x 10
45 x 8
55 x 8
Superset with...
Close-grip Pulldown
120 x 7

Bent-over Barbell Row
75 x 9

Shrugs
70 x 3
80 x 6

Back Extensions
35 x 15

Dumbbell Curls
40 x 4


I started the workout at 5:24 and finished at 5:39. I feel like it was more productive than some of my two hour long sessions at the gym though.

are those all working sets? cause you're probaly aware of the fact that HIT is supposed to do with one working set per excercise.

I don't put sets. Each line is one set. It's (lbs.) x (reps). I did three warm up sets for pullovers, but other than that it's all one set (besides shrugs but I used a weight that was too light the first time).
