Fitness Tuesday/ posted in: Fitness
I’ve been lazy this week. I’ve only done one weight lifting workout.
Warm up – 1/4 mile walk, 1/2 mile run, 1/4 mile walk
Workout #1 – 3 rounds
- 8 reverse curls
- 10 tricep kickbacks
- 8 bicep curls
- 10 dips
I used 12.5 lb weights for the curls and kickbacks. Since I was at the gym I used their assisted dip machine. It offsets your weight so you aren’t lifting your whole body weight for dips or pull ups. I set it so I was lifting 100 lbs on the dips. I was pretty proud of being able to do 30 of those with good range of motion.
- 5 cleans every minute on the minute for 8 minutes
The clean is the lift that goes from the floor to under your chin. I was doing hang cleans so I started with the bar at my thighs. I did 75 lbs. I think I did 75 lbs. The bar I was using wasn’t labelled. It felt like a 35 lb bar but the reps were easier than I expected so I started second guessing myself and thinking that maybe it was a light bar. Why do we do that instead of thinking that we’ve gotten stronger? I had the husband look at the bar and he thought it felt like 35 lbs too. I think I need to take a day and go and figure out what my max is on that lift now. I know I was stuck at 95 for a long time.
