just out of curiosity, how tall are you? as mentioned before, don’t neglect the legs, they will in time, give you some serious power.[/quote]
Thanks everybody. I am 6’0". I have been working my legs a little bit but not to the extent of the weight I should be doing. I hope to be in top notch shape by October for the race. Running and biking I think might a mental block for me wanting to lift heavy on my legs.
My typical workout routine consists of working out on my lunch break for about 40 min. I know that I should be doing more, and I am changing jobs so that time limit will be bumped up to be longer. But the regiment is:
Monday: Chest (Bench, Incline, Peck Deck)
Tuesday: Legs (Hack Squats, Leg Curls, Calves)
Wednesday: Core ( Leg lifts, Situps)
Thursday: Shoulders and Tri’s ( Shoulder Press, Incline Military Press, Shrugs, triceps Pull Downs)
Friday: Back and Biceps ( Pull-ups, Pull downs, Good mornings, Barbell curl)
I start out pretty good in the beginning week with my workout. Thursdays are weird because the fronts of my shoulders are the weakest, and I get caught up in doing to many exercises in the short amount of time. So I try to hit that everyday with a light weight.
It’s amazing to me how much has changed and I can’t wait to get to my goal. And BigAndy Don’t worry results will come!!!
Please comment on the regiment, I will most likely be shifting into a more cardio throughout the week, but I will still maintain the weight training workout. Endurance running, you NEED muscle.
