|Anything goes in The Snug, the GD's rebellious little brother. An off-topic den of iniquity for non-football/news related musings.
I don't want to make this a "my dick is bigger than yours" thread so no lying and only post a session if you've done it!
For those that are training for any sporting events or fitness events, or even those just training to look good, I thought it'd be a good idea to start a thread where you can share the training session you did, whether it be in the gym, on the road, on the track...wherever! For those lacking inspiration for a Monday morning session, this thread could provide some ideas.
For example, this morning I did a horrible metabolic session (otherwise known as HIIT) at the gym which went as follows:
Hang Clean Press x 8
Pull-Ups x 6 (meant to be max but that's all I can manage at the moment)
Rowing Sprint - 3 x 150m in 30 seconds with 30 second rest between each one
TRX Row x 15 (Bodyweight)
Burpees x 10
Deadlift x 8
3 minute rest
Repeat x 4
Safe to say, the last set is disgusting. Looking forward to taking some ideas from some of you!
4am session this morning included
Snatch plus 2 overhead squats (8x1+2) (about 70%-80% of max)
Clean plus 2 jerks (8x1+2) (as above)
150m walking lunges carrying 20kg bag in front
4 sets wide grip chins (+30kg)
Some accessory work and snatch balances to finish up. Wasn't particularly decent session, quite a few technique **** ups that my fogged up early morning brain couldn't quite rectify, quite a lot of swearing and throwing bars around so good that nobody else was there really
Ha ha. I changed my routine a month or two ago and get out of bed for about 3.50am each day now. It's probably shortening my life but I'm getting loads done on the plus side.
4am is major early, I'm not sure I could get done what I want to do in the gym at that time as I wouldn't be functioning! I'm usually in the gym by 5:45am and I find that tough enough, making a lot more mistakes then I do in sessions after work. Can't beat an empty gym at that time though.
Yeah I'm usually leaving by the time people start rolling in . Still don't understand how.they square the 24 hour thing with their.insurers .
Convinced they are going to find a member decapitated by a barbell one.morning
20 rep dumbbell side lateral raises super-setted with 20 rep front lateral raises x 3 sets at medium weights.
20 rep front shrugs x 2 sets med weight
20 rep rear shrugs x 2 sets med weight.
30 rep military dumbbell overhead press x 2 sets med weight
30 rep dumbbell pull up to chin x 2 sets med weight
300 of various sit ups (10 sets of 30) in blocks of 2 or 3 in-between the above (crunches, leg raises, elbows to knees etc etc)
That's because people that generally pump iron to make themselves bigger do have a tiny penis. So you'd lose.
30 reps x dumbbell hammer curls supersetted with 30 reps x triceps dips - 2 sets each
30 reps x dumbbell concentration curls supersetted with 30 reps x tricep dumbbell kick back - 2 sets each
30 reps x dumbbell alternate dumbbell curl supersetted with 30 reps x over head double handed dumbbell press - 2 sets each.
And DL has it right. I have a very tiny penis and do weights to make up for it. My training has absolutely nothing to with the health benefits that regular exercise has brought me for a man of my considerable age (lower cholesterol, weight loss, increased fitness levels, better aerobic capacity, less % body fat, more strength and better flexibility) plus the increase in personal confidence because I look leaner and in better shape.
I did 87 miles on the bike this morning with just over 6,000 feet of climbing in four hours and 46 minutes.
I tripped over my penis on the way to the bathroom too
Front Squats - 3 working sets of 12, 60 seconds rest between sets
Bench - 5 sets of 10, 45 secs rest
Dips - 5 sets of between 10-20, 60 secs rest
Lat raises - 2 sets of 15 followed by 2 sets of "all the way down the rack".
Marky, how much do you weigh?
Is your training centred around improving strength? If so, what type of exercises do you do to improve your bench and deadlift (including variations of these exercises)?
Not sure re centred some weeks I will do 3 sets of 6 reps but generally it's 3 sets of 10-12 reps.
In fairness I lift 30% more than this time last year it's just in 2017 I have not pushed on particularly bench pressing.
I will train legs, biceps, triceps, back, chest, core and shoulders at least twice a week and do 2-3 hours of cardio on top. My triceps and biceps have come on well I would say.
In fairness 2015 and before I was a chubby loafer!
