Just a bit of sled work and a little lifting
Saturday we went to a friends daughters birthday party, so no training. We are going to my wife’s grandmothers 90th birthday in NC this weekend so I am trying to get some extra cardio in through the week to make up for missing and what I am sure will be some extra calories eaten/drank. Also, trying to work off some Saturday evening bad food eating…
Monday sled work 7/16
Sled with 35 lbs: 1 lap normal dragging to get in the groove. 1 lap upper body work
Sled with 80 lbs: 2 laps alternating forward, backward drags with rows.
Sled was feeling good for some reason so I put another 25 on and kept dragging.
Sled with 105 lbs: 2 laps alternating forward, backward, and Rows.
No actual gym work today, but still had a good session outside.
Sled with 1 plate for 5 laps with no stops. I had a podcast playing that was 40 min long so I had the idea I was just going to pull until it was done….Not so much. I made it 20 minutes before my calves had enough. Forgot about the lots of sled on Monday until a few steps in when my calves protested.
Long ab strap standing crunch: 5 sets of 12
Row machine: 5 sets of 10
Wide grip Lat Pulldowns: 4 sets of 10
Hanging straight leg raise: 3 sets of 10
Sled with 1 plate for 3 more laps. I am liking the cardio lift cardio. It breaks up the cardio enough so it is not as bad. I am going to start doing some more steady state cardio in with the heavier drags. I have not done any real “cardio” for a while so it is about time to add it back in. At least I will get some more reading/listening in. I enjoy listening to pod casts and books, but can never make the time to do it unless I am in the car.
