Yesterday was a long one. Started off with Core Cardio. I had pretty good energy to get this work out done. I had to work at the golf course, and it’s hot out in Northern Virginia these days!
Time for Leg Day. I’m going to change this up just a little bit this month. I’m going to keep the heavy lifts, but I’m not a body builder. I don’t need to do calf raises. My calf muscles are to help me run and jump. So, I’m going to incorporate those type of movements. Plus, all the squats are making my legs bulky and my pants tight!
Back Squat: 4 Sets, 5 Reps: 165/180/205/205. Good range of motion. Getting heavy on the last few reps!
Front Squat: 4 Sets, 10 Reps: 125/125/125/125. My arm flexibility was a lot better. I got the elbow up higher which really centers the weight throughout the body.
Small Leg Circuit: Box Jumps (10) + Jump Rope Double-Unders (10) + Body Squats (10). I performed all three in succession for 3 Rounds! I’m not sure what I’ll do next week, but I may just add one more exercises or one more round. WHO KNOWS!
Basketball Fun Run: So, I have these Under Armour shoes that will track your runs. I am not mentally prepared at this point to go jog on the road (plus it’s hot as hell), but I figured that I’d just run around the court for a little bit and let the shoes track it. Well, they are not as sensitive as I thought. It pretty much just logged that I ran 100ft with in 15 minutes. I got what I wanted out of it physically, but for data purposes, I’ll have to come up with something else!
Thanks for reading. Get Strong. Stay Strong!
