Before arriving I decided to make today a lifting day. Still on my 'lean routine', my routine consists of tri-sets performed at a brisk pace, my heart rate monitor strapped on, and my daily caloric intake at a reduced level. It's been a week since my last gym visit so I kept things a bit tame today.
First tri set -
Squat: 135/12, 155/12, 175/12, 12
Pushups: 20, 15, 15, 15
DB OH: 15/12, 12, 12, 12
(Following the squats my hr was up somwhere b/w 95-101%, so I let it get down to about 90% before moving on to the pushups. After DB OH, I let it drop to about 70% before starting over. Last week, I jumped back in at around 80%.)
Second tri set -
Calf sled: 180/20, 20, 17
DB Lateral Raises: 15/10, 10, 10
DB 'Diagonal Raises': 8/8, 10, 10
Session lasted 36 min in total, 504 calories burned, and an avg hr 155 bpm (85% of max). Not too bad!! My bodyweight is now at 168 lbs. That's a 6 pound loss in 5-1/2 weeks. So far, right on track with my plan of approx 1 lb per week.
