4 days to go. Feeling encouraged and proud I pressed on....

Monday, July 16, 2012

New totals for July - Day 16
Miles - 64.88
Pushups - 1,950
Squats - 2,587

Quick ST today along with 2 on the treadmill while my little girl took her nap. There is much to do this week but I want to finish strong and get in a few more workouts before we leave. I am very pleased with how my body has responded to my strength training, my diet and the overall changes I am seeing. I am actually looking forward to a new challenge which will start Monday August 6th.

Here are my results from today...

Morning ST - 30:03 mins -

Standard Military Push ups - 5 sets of 20 reps
Two arm bicep curls with sumo squats - 3 sets of 20 reps with 20 lb Db's
Squat Press - 3 sets of 20 reps using a 33 lb...(15 kg) plate
Plank Row - 3 sets of 30 reps with 8 lb Db's
Plank lateral raise - 3 sets of 30 reps with 8 lb Db's
Horizontal Chops with sumo squats - 3 sets of 20 reps with a 33 lb plate

2 Interval sessions on the tread today -

Running intervals - max speed 12.0 kph and walking intervals punching, pressing and curling 5 and 8 lb Db's - 20 mins, 1.55 miles AP 12:54 mm

Walking incline intervals - 10% and 15% - max interval speed - 7.7 kph @ 10% grade - 25 mins, 1.55 miles AP 16:07

Finally, I did 200 cross body mountain climbers ( 100 reps each side) and then I did 100 Bosu ball pushups ( all military). I am happy I was able to get in 3 good workouts today, all of them short....a total of 75 mins but I pushed hard to make the most of every minute.
