Long time reader, first time poster. I’d like to hear some opinions or suggestions as to what I could change or add to my workout.
I was a former competitive long distance runner, and now I just run marathons. But I’ve always loved to lift weights, I know complete opposite of what a long distance runner would want, extra weight to bring along for those long runs. I’ve been lifting pretty hard, easing off the cardio (no more than 3 miles a session, which is about 3x a week) and taking the following:
-Surge Workout Fuel
-Usana Essentials (multi-vitamin, minerals and antioxidants)
-Usana Procosa (glucosamine)
-Usana Biomega (fish oils)
I’m a chef, so i’m pretty good about pre workout meal and post workout meals. As for my training
I’m 5’7 and hover around 157-160lbs.
My split has always been mon & thurs chest, shoulder, triceps and tues & fri back, biceps, and legs. routinely switching up between bar and dumbbell work. here’s my most recent workout.
Flat BB Benchpress
135lbs- 12x (warm up)+ jump rope
Standing Military Press
Decline BB Benchpress (alternate with incline)
Widegrip Pullups (every month switching between chins/pulls and wide/neutral grip)
Front Squat (also alternate between front/split and back)
Deadlift (alternate regular and romanian)
