Did a day of BBB to see how I felt
If I continue this is c3w1d1 kept the same rep maxes as I started with before since I took a vacation and haven’t been pushing strength lately.

Bench press 5’s week
3x5 warm up 45,50,60
3x5 working 65,75,80 (12 reps top set)
5x10 BBB 50 lbs close grip super set with
5x10 DB row 35 lbs
3x15 leg press 190 lbs
3x15 leg curl 70 lbs
3x15 triceps push down 30 lbs ss with cable face pulls 3x20
3x20 hanging leg raises ss push ups 3x15,10,10

This felt much better. I don’t mind the lay out of the RP programs but it’s missing the top working sets.

If you like it better, I’ll bet you’ll get better results, doing something you like is always better.
If you want to lose some weight too, as I remember there was an event of something coming up right.
Then do some conditioning at the end. Like Farmers walk/carries at the end of leg day and battle rope on upper body days.
Or what I really like walking every day for an hour or more… but it takes a lot of time. So some carries at the end could do the trick


#96

I have been adding c25k on my rest days and my boyfriend and I have been going for a walk every night after dinner. So that should help cover the cardio aapect

I know the gain is from the carbs from unexpected events with friends and family.

And probably extra salty food :slight_smile:
That was a beast of a workout you guys put up there.
