I still have 1.5 weeks worth of workouts (I kind of messed the schedule up last week when I got sick).

I'm wondering if I should throw in an optional 4th session. I don't know if I could always fit it in, but some weeks I could. Do you think that might be too much? I think I'm going to switch up my strength workouts to more of a periodization route, but I need to do some reading up on it first. So that means I wouldn't be trying to max out every week anymore.

I feel like I'm getting used to this style of training now though. I like how quick it is most days, but I also like that I get to do longer tempo runs on the weekend when I have more time.

Meant to ask, what's your opinion? Do you think I'm doing alright?

04/08/11:

Warm-up:
5 aussie pull-ups
5 push-ups
5 bench dips
10 squats
20 sit ups
50 jumping jacks
10 thrusters

a bunch of leg swings

Squats: kept it lighter than usual so I could focus on depth
45x10
95x5
115x5
135x5
135x5
135x5
135x5
145x5 (couldn't go as deep)

Still not quite full ROM, but definitely an improvement. There isn't a mirror where I squat, but I can tell I was going deeper as I could feel my glute muscles engage a lot more than they usually do. Typically I mostly feel squats in my quads.

Bench:
45x10
65x5
75x5
95x3
95x2
95x3
95x3
95x2

Was kind of weak on the bench today. Hmph.

BB Row:
45x10
5 sets of 5 @ 105 lbs

That's all I had time for.

Lunch:
mixed greens, beets, carrot, black-eyed peas
1 apple

Snack:
3 apples (1 was super tiny! So this should probably be like 2.33 apples)

Dinner:
pinto bean + TVP enchiladas
lots of pineapple

04/09/11:

5 mile run - was supposed to do 10 burpees after each mile, I subbed 15 jumping jacks. Where I run the ground is kind of gross, broken glass and stuff. Didn't want to put my hands down (that makes me sound pretty wussy) = 50:05

Yes, if wussy = smart, self-preservation. Keep up the great work!

Even if there wasn't a bunch of crap on the ground, I don't think I'd do burpees on concrete/asphalt. Good way to tear your palms up.

If you plan on working out there for a while couldn't you buy a couple of cheap 2.5lb plates and take them with you?

Keep up the good work!

Keep meaning to do that, still haven't. My only excuses are laziness and extreme cheapness. ;)

Lol

Btw, I've been having great flexibility gains by spending 5-10 mins every day (hamstrings + shoulders). After you make a routine of it you start noticing great improvements.
