Here’s the workout for today as the same applies this week as it did last. To have progressive strength gains in training I’ll follow a three to four week routine depending on how I’m feeling. I may need to de-load after two weeks in some cases so keep that in mind just in case you need to do the same.
With that said theres nothing more impressive than watching an athlete move with incredible ease. As I sit here watching the Olympics it makes perfect sense to want to have at least a piece of what incredible athletes such as Olympians have.
I understand that not everyone will be able to compete in the Olympic games, but we can take pieces of what Olympic athletes have shown us for improving our own selves and health.
I wish we could have incredible and inspirational stories as we have seen in the Olympic games all day every day. We should all want to do something incredible with our life’s so that we can become better individuals. We’re all capable of it!
In today’s workout we should keep that in mind as we grind through this one. The weights should be increased unless you’re de-loading.
1a) Dead-lift 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, & 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 (go heavier)
1b) Bench press 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 & 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 (go heavier)
2a) Body weight push-ups ( Train until the chest is fried and break last weeks record of reps)
2b) Body weight pull-ups (Train until the back is fried and break last weeks record of reps)
3) Abdominal work ( four movements of your choice)
After this week of training the focus will be shifted to just a few movements. I’m looking in the direction of highly explosive exercises and programing. In other words keeping it simple! Some of my best workouts have been with a couple of movements. Becoming excellent with big lifts will benefit anyone! It’s the foundation before moving on to an advanced workout regimen, but as you’ll see you can get in extremely great shape with focusing on the big lifts.
Anaerobic activities will get you shredded! It would only make sense to do as much of that as we can while sprinkling in some cardiovascular training.We still want to be able to move freely. Too much muscle will slow you down and we don’t want that. If you can’t move you can’t function.
