IF you’re up for a laugh then attempt to get on the stairmaster as I did and see how long you last…LOL.

Chest and Triceps

Hey y’all - I’m back. Sorry for the inconsistency. Turns out training for marathon number 2 and starting grad school at the same time wasn’t my best idea or very conducive to leisurely blogging.

Anyway, I’m back on track and I’m on a kick-ass lifting program I made with my boyfriend. It’s so fun I thought I would share it.

Today:

-Instructed 50 minute cycling class ( ~500kcal) at 6:30am

Back to the gym around 3 for a lifting session:

Supersets: Minimal rest from one exercise to the next, high speed and intensity, lots of kcals burned!

In all sets of 4: third set add weight so you may only get 6-10 reps, 4th set is a burnout, light weight 12-15 reps [If you are just starting, ignore this, do not add weight, and instead do 3-4 sets at 10-12 reps]

Superset:
Bench press 10-12x4
Triceps skull crusher 10-12x4

Dumbbell bench press 10-12x4
Single dumbbell triceps extension 0-12x4

Incline bench press 10-12x3
Triceps dips 10-12x3

Push ups 10-12x3
Triceps over-back push downs 10-12x3

Abs:
Cable opposite opposite elbow planks
Decline bench 10 crunch 20 Russian twists with weight

Hope you love it! xo!
