I’m pretty damn proud of myself right now. You see, I completed my very first proper strength workout today. And i was the most awesomest thing ever! I never knew just how fun exercise could be before I stepped into the weight room. Now I can’t wait to go back and lift ALL THE THINGS!
Anyways, here’s my log for today. All weights are in kilograms.
Warm-up: 10 mins. on the elliptical, light stretching
Lat pulldowns: 11x20, 18x10, 18x10, 18x10, 18x10, 25x10
Benchpress: barx10, barx9, barx8, barx5
Good mornings: barx10, barx10, barx10, 5x10
Leg press: 30x15, 40x15, 40x15, 40x20
Dumbell shoulderpress: 3x10, 3x10, 5x10, 5x10, 5x10
Dumbell rows: 3x10, 5x10, 5x10, 5x10
I got my current routine from stumptous.com. My goal for now is just all-round strength and learning to actually use my muscles. I don’t do squats or deadlifts yet as my technique is still abysmal. Constructive critisism and suggestions are more than welcome.
