First entry in the new blog! I was recording my workouts over at the Nerd Fitness Community page, but now they are here. A one-stop-shop! If you want to see what I have done since April of this year, check this link out.
Prior to this workout, I was doing four lifts each workout.
Squat, Overhead Press, Dead Lift and Pull Ups/Negative Pulls
Squat, Bench Press, Dead Lift and Chin Ups/Negative Chins
I would alternate these workouts in an “every other” type method.
On days where I had extra time, say, when doing my workout in the evening after work or in the afternoon, I would throw in a 1 mile run.
I’ve had some good results, but I don’t want to plateau (like it was with my Squats), so NOW I am changing things up a bit to see if I can get some better results. Going from four lifts to three plus the run each workout.
I give you my workout today:
