  3. Week 13 - weights and a swim

    by , January 3rd, 2013 at 09:29 PM (After a long rest)
    So today was my first Dry land/weight workout. I now know why I was a swimmer and not a weight lifter. There is something nice about not noticing sweat on my body when I swim. Also the pain from weights is a different sort of hurt and I don't like it. I will continue doing it though since I know it's good for me. Based on how I feel now I suspect I am going to be stiff as a board at early practice.

    Weight machines
    Stretch for 10 mins
    10 x (10x bench press, military press, lat pull downs, bicep curls, lower back curls)
    30 mins

    400 free
    8x50 catchup
    15x100 pull on 1.30 focus on long strokes
    100 easy
    Total 2400
