Since January I've been doing a variety of Dumbell workouts, trying to change things about every 6 weeks.
My new routine is now concentrating on Pushups and Pullups with some weights to target areas.
Monday: Pullups, 3 different kinds, in 3 sets (or as best I can)
Pushups, 3 kinds - regular, wide and close, 3 sets of each
Preacher Curls (dumbells) 40 lbs, 3 sets of 8 to 10
Hammer Curls (dumbells) - same
Lunges - 3 sets
Tuesday - run 35 minutes, 6.5 mph
Wednesday - See pullup pushup-routine (vary the pushups to include other kinds)
3 sets of Dumbell flys, 40lbs, 10 to a set
3 sets of Dumbell Presses, 50lbs, 10-12 to a set
3 sets of Squats - 30lbs
same cardio as above
See pullup-pushup routine
3 sets of 30lbs 10, Bent over raise
3 sets of 30lbs 10 front or lateral raise (alternate weeks)
3 sets of 40 lbs Pullovers, 10 easch set
and if I have the time or energy 3 sets of One arm rows 50lbs, 12 each set.
Ab routine - or save the abs for the weekend.
(this back shoulder one I'm thinking about alternating the concentrating on from week to week)
Weekend - cardio and at times a light full body work out.
Sound good, too much, need to add, drop - looking for toughts on this type..,
I have to say the first two times doing this workout I could not complete 3rd sets of pullups and the push up were very tough as well coming into the 3rd set.
I alternate between pushup and pulluups - in other words, I do the standard pullups, then do a regular pushup set, then do the second kind of pullup set, followed by the sets for the wide push up, then third pull up, which is currently the wide one, then the close pushup set.
it's a tiring but good feeling workout but before I get too crazy with it, I was looking for some thougts.
