It seems like it was ages ago since I posted on here. If I'm honest, I haven't posted because the few weeks over christmas didn't allow me to make much progress and my weight didn't move much. The week that had christmas on was actually the first time since I started way back in July that I put on weight. I went from 95.6kg, to 95.9kg. The week after I made it back down to 95.6kg, so it was only a small festive slip. I also weighed myself the monday just gone and am down to 94.7kgs. I'm anticipating another good drop this monday as I've been at it hard this week.
I've once again changed up my workout a bit more (especially in regards to weights). One reason was because my muscle gains were starting to slow down a little, but also because my new uni timetable has changed which days I can go to the gym. I'm now doing:
20-30mins shoulder workout consisting of military press and side raises. I also work traps here. I also plan to add abs into this workout once I've lost some more weight.
20-30mins bicep/tricep workout. I start with french curls, then do some barbell curls. I then moved on to do quads by doing a leg press. I then move back to do kick backs for triceps and then alternate dumbell curls for biceps.
20-30mins chest and lats workout. I start using a pulldown machine for lats (I plan to move on to pull ups with a wide grip for lats once I can do them
). I then move on to do chest press, incline press and maybe chest flys. I'd prefer to do the flys laying on the floor to remove the risk of injury, but I know I'll get very odd looks if I did this heh. Maybe I'll do them when I get in from the gym in the safety of my home.
I think this is a step up for my workout and should be better with the rest days. I might add in a swim on saturdays so I don't have 2 rest days back to back like that. Like I said above, once I've lost more weight and can do the things I currently can't (I'm looking at you pullups/dips), I'm planning to move my workout to something closer to this: http://www.scoobysworkshop.com/schedintermediate.htm
I think it suits me well and should be a good new challenge. I plan to add some pictures of me from when I started and pictures of me now. Does anyone have any suggestions about my workout at all?
