Beth's Buns


#1

I decided to start a log to keep myself accountable with my training. Going through nursing school, working fulltime, and being a single mom makes it difficult to keep a training routine and achieve consistent progress.
,Goals: Cut 10lb of fat, maximize conditioning and agility, and maintain strength. i.e lean mean fighting machine.
Well here's todays Workout.

6am: 10 sets of 50yd sprints.
50 pullups (10x5)

0830: Gym - 100 pushups (5x20)
sumo deadlift: 3x20 at 155lb
hypers: 5x35
dips: 4x12
neck bridges on med ball: 3x8


#2

Looks solid TB .... Curious to see what he rest of the week looks like

......and WTF with the neck bridges? Trying to get that varsity wrestling letter? Lol


#3

Haha why do I always feel like I'm the only one who trains neck? I used to do 3 sets of 50 yes/no's and 5 sets of 15 neck bridges. Probably a leftover from when I used to train in MMA.


#4

Lol ... That's cool, just messing

To be honest I always mean to squeeze it in, but it tends to get cut when time becomes an issue

......same thing with abs ..... And calves :slightly_smiling:


#5

Yay!

6am, ouch.

Lot's of volume on the exercises, Beth.

Do you time your sets on the sprints?


#6

Also, with the title of this training log, you WILL have to post a bun pic.

Preferably yours.


#7

I was expecting this to be a tribute page set up by Edgy


#8

Yeah, you're right. Wonder if I should tweak that to more efficiently meet my goals. I don't time the sprints, I count 2 telephone poles and do another set of sprints. Walk to warm up, walk between sprints, and walk to cool down. 2 miles total.

If I can figure out how to do a butt selfie I'll put one up. The log name is actually what I'm going to name my future cafe .... Since I like to bake so much


#9

Oh crap, I never do calves. Why do people do calves?


#10

You go girl! I think I will check in here more often. The gals seem to be more motivated with less of a tude.


#11

I never do calves


#12

Me either, obviously

But I feel like I make up for it by wearing high heels on the weekends .....

...........KIDDING...........


#13

And NOW you have my attention.


#14

In the worst way possible, lol

X 2 ... Great pic of you both

So, I see pull-ups and push-ups everyday (?) .... Where is the neck work?

Everyone knows that's the most important body part !


#19

Thanks guys!

Mr Elvis - Currently I'm on a sabbatical from blow jobs and MMA. When either one of those re-enters the picture, I'll be sure to pick up the pace on my neck work.


#20

The former can pop up when you least expect it (pun, pun, pun) ..... You can never be too prepared

Atrophy is the enemy!
