Tuckered Out!

Thursday, March 14, 2013

So I lifted weights yesterday for the first time in over a week. I only started lifting a few weeks ago, and then I overdid it and couldn't lift again for over a week. Wouldn't it be nice if recuperation went just a little bit faster?

Anyway, I'm really sore today. Tomorrow will be worse. Nothing that isn't bearable or anything, but it does slow me down a bit.

I guess I can list my routine here. Why not?

Squats ------------------ 3 sets, 15 reps, body weight only
Barbell Bench Press ----- 2 sets, 15 reps, 20 pounds; 1 set, 6 reps (trying to build up to a third full set)
Dumbbell Shoulder Press - 3 sets, 15 reps, 5 pounds (arms over the head very hard for me)
Upright Row, Barbell ---- 3 sets, 15 reps, 15 pounds
One-legged calf raises -- 3 sets each leg, 15 reps, body weight only
Crunches, legs on bench - 4 sets, 20 reps

So I'm looking to expand this somewhat. This has been my starter routine, and now, after over a month, I feel like I can add a few more things. That will be my project for this week!

    I hear ya! Why can't we recoup faster! I mean we gain fast, so why does our bodies take so long to recoup? or to lose?
    Sounds like a good work out!
    Hope your having a great day!
