Saturday morning in the gym is usually one of my tougher workouts. I’m not coming from work, its not SUPER early – just wake up, eat and head to the gym. Plus, I usually don’t like to workout on Sundays, so I know I’ll have an extra day to recover.
After watching the Women’s Figure Competition from the Arnold Classic last night, I was SO motivated to KICK BUTT in the gym this morning – harder than usual.Â Those women are in tip top physical shape – they have trained for months for this opportunity.Â If they can do it and reach that level, I can do my workouts to reach my goal (I mentioned on Twitter last night I’m toying with the idea of doing a Figure competition – we’ll see).
So, with my new motivation I had a KILLER workout and wanted to share it with you….
1st (3 times about 1 min rest between sets)
20 Jump Squats (on Machine 90lbs)
Wall Table with 15lbs hold for 1 Min
2nd (4 sets, rest about a minute between sets)
Supine Lat Pulldown (I increased my weight! WOOHOO! Went from 90lbs to 105!)
Dumbbell Shoulder Press
3rd (4 sets, resting about a minute between each set)
Dumbbell Chest Press
Sprint for 2 minutes on Treadmill after 1st and 3rd Set
4th (3 sets, resting a minute between each set)
Incline Dumbbell Row
Overhead DB Tricep Extension
5th (4 sets, dropping number of reps 20, 15, 12, 10)
Dumbbell Bicep Curl
6th (3 sets, 1 minute rest)
45lb Plate Chest Press (focus on Triceps)
Dumbbell Stiff Leg Deadlift
It was a long workout…but I kept the rest between each set minimal and that kept my heart pumping and the fat burning. I have SO much energy right now it’s awesome!
The most important thing after this type of workout is to make sure that you eat enough protein to help build your muscles. For breakfast I had a protein shake and an egg white omelet with spinach, salsa, and a little bit of cheese.
