Barbells are going down...I mean up!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

It is official. I am becoming the master of the barbell.....SLOWLY.p

The workout I did yesterday was pretty good. Since I have never used the barbell before I spent most of the workout ensuring I had good form with the added weight. I only added the barbell itself to start because to be honest I have no idea how much I can lift yet in each exercise. If I lifted too much to start I know ide injure myself.

I completed:
One kick ass warm-up 15 mins
squats - 4 sets of 5 reps with the barbell
Overhead press - 4 sets of 5 reps with the barbell
Inverted rows - 3 sets of max reps(my results: 3, 3, 2)
One body stretching cool-down 10 mins


To be honest it definitely felt tougher to do each exercise with the barbell, but I think I could have done more reps, which means the weight needs to go up. Again I mainly focused on form to start but On thursday i am going to add 5 lbs to the barbell and see how that feels.


As for nutrition. I did 60%awesome 20% good and 20% needs improvement.

Which basically means I rocked the food I brought, I drank 8 cups of water and had a ton of veggies. I definitely need more protein though. Also I splurged on chocolate a bit. All in all that is way better then Monday!
