Hi everyone. I’ve been stalking T NATION for a while after being recommended to it by a trainer who saw me trying to do olympic lifts at the gym I used to go to. After working out for a while on my own and failing to stay motivated, I’ve decided that I need a training buddy and a goal. My friend M2 suggested that we do judo and workout together. She’s been doing judo for two years, but never lifted weights seriously. I’m pretty much the opposite story.
I wanted to try a training program that I haven’t used before and she wants to include a lot of conditioning work, so we settled on the original westside for skinny bastards with a few modifications. I added a dynamic lower body day to it, so it’s now a 4-day program instead of a 3-day. Also, she wants to do a conditioning day after our WS4SB day. So, instead of doing three workouts throughout a 7-day period, we’re going to do a strength workout the first day, a conditioning workout the second day, and then have a third day off. When judo starts, it will only be one day per week officially, so that shouldn’t affect our training too much.
Here is what we did yesterday and the day before:
Conditioning- 1 mile-2min break-.75 mile-2min break-.5mile-2min-break-.25mile-2min break:
M1: total of 25min:55sec
M2: total of 27min:56sec
(including all of the 2 min breaks in total time)
We didn’t realize that the gym was going to close early, so we only got in half of the upper body strength day:
M1: Bench press:
105lbsx1 followed by fail
Upright DB bench:
Incline DB bench:
20x10 (last few were with assistance)
