Training dailys!!


hey guys, i was thinking maybe we could start a new thread called the training dailys or something where everyone says what kind of exercise they did that day and what your training for etc(if your training for anything)....

anyway... i didnt do anything today because i'm tired from yesterday.
Yesterday's workout:

1.5 mile warm up
1.5 mile timed run (did this run twice)
cool down was walking and stretching

Do you guys think this is a good idea? I think it would be interesting and a way to find a new workouts to do etc.
oh, by the way i am training for a 5K race that is july 7th

After i quitted tae-kwon-do i came up with this exercise routine:

10 minutes of stretching
10-15 minutes of tae-kwon-do
200 push ups (sets of 30-40)
100 sit ups (sets of 30-40)
50 weightlifts on each arm with a 15kilogram dumbbell. (sets of 10-15)
30-40 minutes of jogging. (non-stop) I started jogging because i had crappy stamina. my taekwondo instructor suggested i jog every once in a while. Nowadays my stamina is really really great

Back when i was in florida i used to do this almost everyday. Now i do this every sunday because of my full time job at a warehouse, which involves heavy lifting....

re: Training dailys!!


Ok first of all my workouts always seem to fall on the WORST days weather wise! it's like 90 degress with 100% humidity. Well not really but it was DAMN hot in my garage.

Ok i did upper body today, yesterday was my workout day and i was hung over like you wouldn't believe. I puked like 10 times, to the point of stomach bile. GREAT ab workout that was tho! My abs were sore like crazy today lol.


breakfast : Bowl of honey bunches of oats, 1 hardboiled egg,slice of toast with strawberry preserves, a bananna, glass of skim milk, multi vitamin.

worked out an hour and half later.


Started with 10 minutes warm up ( just running place, various motions such as arm cicrles, shouder shrugs, get the joints ready, jumping jacks)

Thne i go right into pull ups.

Wide grip (pronated grip)- warm up with 3, then do 8

medium grip (one palm pronated, the other supinated, do both)- 8

close grip pronated-8

commando/mountain climbers- 8 to each side of the bar

close grip supinated- 10

repeat for set 2. usually i can't get anything past 5 reps this second set around, so i pretty much go to failure.

Push -ups- 10 for a warmup

Dips- 2 sets of 12, 1 set weighted with 10 pounds, 8 reps

bench press- warm ups with 50 pounds, 5 reps. Then 3 sets 95 pounds 8 reps.

military press- 3 sets 75 pounds 5 reps ( i dont do warm up sets anymore at this point since i'm pretty much all warmed up range of motion wise, i just need to watch out for my shoulder that i injured a while back. I'm still always cautious with it.

shoulder shrugs- 3 sets 100 pounds- 5 reps

Barbell rows- 3 sets 70 pounds- 8 reps

Barbell curls- 3 sets 80 pounds- 5 reps.

Abs
2 sets side crunches- 20
3 sets leg raises- 20 reps
3 sets leg kick ups or whateverr the hell the name is! 20 reps
3 sets crunches to opposite elbow- 20 reps

3 sets full crunches , laying on a bench with my upperbody hanging half off it so my upperbody comes down below the normal range of motion- 12 reps

Lay on stomach and do supermans for the back area, then suck in my gut and lift body off the ground for as long as i can hold it with abs tensed resting on my toes and elbows.

Protein shake, then stretch


Thats pretty much it for upperbody at the moment. I'm always changing things tho after a few weeks.

re: Training dailys!!


I just got back from vacation where I ate everything in sight and never worked out and it was amazing! Haha, but reality hits you hard when you come back home, so today, I did a little abs and chest at home, cause I don't like going to the gym anymore. I was too jet-lagged and tired to finish exercising, but I started out with:

Bench: 165 lbs, 1 set of 7
Curl: 35lbs, 1 set of 10 (10 for each arm)
Inclined sit-up: 1 set of 60

I'm a lazy bum and still in vacation mode. Oh, well. Tomorrow I'll be feeling better and will work out hard.

Omg, you guys do a lot. Don't laugh, I'm really weak, but heres what I do twice a week (pffft, its all in kg's so you wont get it anyway) - been going to the gym for 3 weeks so far, lol:

Traveling Lunges: 2 sets of 10-12, lol I'm not sure what weight dumbbells I use, they're really little ones - I just take the ones that are 3rd from the top of the rack.
Leg Press: 2 sets of 10-12, 20kg.
Step ups: 2 sets of 10-12, 2x11kg dumbbells.
Chest Press: 2 sets of 10-12, 15kg.
Shoulder Press: 2 sets of 10-12, 12kg.
Lat Pull Down: 2 sets of 10-12, 20kg.
Calf Raise: 2 sets of 10-12, 38 kg.
Seated Row: 2 sets of 10-12, 18kg.
Bicep Preacher Curls: 2 sets of 10-12, 5kg.
Tricep Extension: 2 sets of 10-12, 18kg.

Hanging leg raise: 2 sets of 15 (so far I can usually only manage 10 at a time).
Crunch: 2 sets of 15.
Medicine Ball Twist: 2 sets of 15.
Swiss Ball sit ups: 2 sets of 15.

Then one day a week I do a 1 hour cardio workout, mostly on the rower and bike.

*edit* the only reason I know what any of those^^ are is cause I got a personal trainer for a session to show me what to do, hah.

Hey Andy that's great. I do no weight lifting at all, so you got me beat there. I was a little hesitant to post because people who "do less" may feel bad if comparing themselves, AND ANXIOUS PEOPLE NEVER COMPARE THEMSELVES TO OTHERS DO THEY?? HAHA.

But the important thing is just being relentless and doing something everyday or as often as you like, and having a goal in mind, and realizing that this isn't competitive, it's more about encouraging participation. and doing something you like to do!!

I'm going out again right now, My goal is to fit into wait size 32" pants someday. I don't weigh myself, that is discoraging for me.

re: Training dailys!!


Nice QC! Now are you going to keep exercising tho? or was the training just for the run? Way to go tho! Not really about training but i haven't had a cigarette or a cup of coffee in two days Maybe being hung over after the 4th was just what i needed to kick start me to quit
