Tune Up

Posted in Gym Strength by Mike on February 16, 2008

The hip thing was still nagging so I decided not to go heavy at all. So I did this:

Exercise 20K 40K 20K 40K 20K
Front Squat 20 20 20 20 20
Straight Leg Deadlift 20 20 20 20 20
Standing Press 20 14, 6 20 10, 10 20
Back Squat 20 20 20 20 20
High Pull 02 10, 10 20 10, 10 20
Barbell Row 20 20 20 10, 10 20

Knee Raise 5 X 20
Incline Situp 5 X 10

I did the low weight/high rep stuff as a circuit with ample time between sets of the circuits. I’ll be intrigued to see what muscles start to hurt and when they start.

The ab stuff was a part of trying out Chris’s ab advice. The knee raises didn’t do much for me. At the top of the inclined situps, I could really feel that injured muscle. It didn’t hurt but it was starting to complain a bit.

    That is a lot of reps and sets!

    Mike – be sure you’re bringing your knees all the way up as far as possible – your lower back should round at the top of the movement and there should be a little pause at the top. If it’s too easy, add in some leg spreads or straighten your legs more.

    It is a few. I needed to move a lot more than move heavy.

    Chris, I was doing the knee ups on one of those things that has the pads for your forearms. I was brining my knees as high as the pads. I chose not to do more or go harder because of the little bit of injury I am still sorting out I’ll play with the variations later.
