Summer Training

Rate this Entry
Summer training is fun but can be a challenge. Vacation and changes in pool schedule can make it hard to stay on a schedule. The last two weeks have been busy, busy, but got in a few runs, swims, and lifts.

I have gotten started on my high reps/low weights program. Wow! What a whole different workout! It plain old wears me out, but that is a good thing. My weight-lifting guru contact said that 3 sets of 15 was plenty. I had planned to do 5, but he said that many sets was overkill. Today, did the following workout:

Warm-up: 8 minutes on the gauntlet

Bench press: bar x 10, 3 sets of 65 x 15

Lat hi row: 3 sets of 90 x 15

Overhead press w/dumbells: 3 sets of 20 x 15

Lat pull-down: 3 sets of 100 x 15

Leg press: 3 sets of 150 x 15

Leg curl: 3 sets of 20 x 15

Leg/knee lifts: 3 sets of 20

Calf raises: 3 sets of 70 x 15

Cardio workout: spin bike bike for 15 minutes, brisk walk (4.0 mph) for 15 minutes, 10 minutes on gauntlet
