Lurked for a while as more of a fitness enthusiast than anything. Got a backpacking event coming up in around 2 months and I was looking for a good place to document( more for my own personal pleasure than anything, so if no one reads this I guess it’s fine) my training for that and beyond which is when I remembered this site. Still, I am no stranger to the gym and will be incorporating strength training into my routine after coming off a 6 six day push/pull/legs split the idea of which I got from Kingbeef’s post.
Some current stats:
2 mile run time: 12 minutes
Press-ups: 40 in a row
Max Deadlift: 330 lbs
Max OHP: 134 lbs
DB Bench Press: 70kg (total) x 4
Leg Press: 350lbs x 5
At the moment I am on a 5 day bodybuilding style split looking to add a few extra pounds of lean mass more for aesthetics really, which I still care about. It’s as follows:
Have seen some good growth off this but I’m looking to switch to 6 day P/P/L split within next week to give a last fire to what has been a real bulking phase for me. After that is where the more fitness orientated training begins.
Monday: 4 mile fell run, intervals- run culminating in hill sprints
Tuesday: Strength training- Deadlift, Bench Press and accessories
Wednesday: Boxing- 1 mile best effort run either side of training- consists of rounds of shadowboxing, bags and skipping
Thursday: Strength training- Leg Press, Overhead Press, Rowing and accessories
Saturday: Lighter run or mountain bike
Sunday: Long walk with weighted pack or light run ( more walking in run up to event)
Bit of a long winded, self- indulgent post, but I guess keeping a log is meant to be about yourself!
