The Chances

How a 250+ Pound Couch Potato Got Healthy

Friday, February 22, 2008

Yesterday I didn't get a chance to jog because of the rain. It was pouring down rain by the time lunch rolled around, and it kept up right on through the day. Yes, I could have jogged at home, but have you ever tried 5 miles on a treadmill? Even watching TV or listening to music, an hour on the treadmill gets mighty boring. So I skipped it.

Today, however, is a different story. Here's the workout:

Warmup, 3 sets of 5 reps, w/45lb bar
* Overhead Squat
* Squat
* Good Morning
* Barbell Lunge
* Romanian Deadlift
* Bent-Over Row

First 3 exercises are in a circuit, repeat until technical failure
* Incline Dumbbell Bench Press w/Pause, 35lb dumbbells, 6 6 6
* Incline Lower Trap Raise, 20lb dumbbells, 10 10 10
* Dumbbell Bench Press, 35lb dumbbells, 15 15 10

Last 2 exercises are in a circuit, repeat until technical failure
* Telle Curl, 80lbs on bar, 6 6 6
* Incline Barbell Triceps Extension, 55lbs, 8 8 8

35 minutes, 216 calories burned

Next week the workouts change for two weeks. It's the last two of the Men's Fitness workouts, after that I'm heading into Jillian Michaels' Making the Cut!
