Glutes & Legs + 10 min HIIT sprint/walk track field

So today I tried out doing 10 min run/walk after my leg workout today. Not too bad actually. The park that is on the same way to the gym has a track field. But it's on a hard surface, not dirt so it might not be too ideal for sprinting? I could always just use the baseball field as my track field. At least that one is on the dirt and grass.

Mobility Warm Up

BB Plié Squat / hanging knee raise 15x
2x45lbs x 20

DB Plié Squat / hanging knee raise 20x
2x50lbs x 20

Note: Felt better doing plié squat holding DB than having a BB on the back.

BB Hip Thrust (bench) / seated heavy band hip abdct
155lbs x 10
155 x 12
185 x 8 (singles last 2)
185 x 10 (singles last 2)

Note: BB Hip Thrust on the bench so I couldn't go too heavy without compromising my form. Medium rep range still good enough to get butt burn.

Chest & Back Workout + 3x30 Bodyweight One Leg Elevated Glute Bridge

I tried out the Cable Wide Lat Pulldown. I might need to practice more with 45lbs weight until I could get all the pull from my lats. When I tried 50lbs, I started to feel it on my triceps, so no good. On last set, I moved back down to 45lbs and I think I will stick to this weight until I get it right.

With Hammer Wide Lat Pulldown, I think I got better control using my lats.

Seated Cable Row actually felt good for me. I could feel my lats engaged more with a bit some from biceps.

Lighte glutes + Back and Shoulder Workout

decided to do another week of Back and Shoulders instead Back and Chest. I might want just do more Back and Shoulders to train my shoulders a bit more in addition to Sunday's KB which mainly already shoulder centric for the most part.

For Thursdays, I could always just throw in 1-2 set of chest oriented workout such as Incline Chest Fly (with DB or the peck deck machine), or Hammer Incline Chest Press or even just the good old push ups.

I was going to try out that BB Squat for 20 reps but today wasn't the day I had the most pump so probably next time. It'll be interesting how much I could do. I might start off really light weight like 50-55lbs. I might try out with Back Squat just for testing. Maybe next Thursday I'll give it a try.

Mobility Warm Up

135lbs x 30 - did 15-7-4-3/ 5lbs x 15
145x30 - did 15-10-5 /5x20
155 x 30- did 15-5-5-5 /5x20

Kettlebell Workout

Today's KB workout. Animal movements were quite fun. All types of crawling are fun. Alligator crawl is the hardest - pretty much bear crawl but we got deeper in push up position with one leg tuck in - or as Z always call it reptile plank.

Modified the Part #2 to be more pressing focus. Originally we had to super set double front squat with pressing. But I skipped the front squat and focused on overhead pressing and did extra rounds to get the most out of it.

3 Rounds of below:
Part #1
1 Arm Swing 5x
1 Arm half snatch 5x
Rev lunge 5x

Repeat for other side before part 2

Part#2- 2 rounds
Double swing 5x
One arm Press (L)
One Arm press (R)
Double press
One Arm press (L)
One Arm press (R)
Double Press

Part #3 - animal mov't (mix & match) - full lap

BB Sumo Deadlift (propped BB on a pair of aerobic step - no risers) / RKC plank

205lbs x 15 - rest pause method (last 5)
205lbs x 17 - rest pause last 8

50lbs x 15 / 75lbs x 15
50lbs x 12- focus on form/depth / 80lbs x 12

Back, Shoulders and Arms

My today's upper body workout. The beauty of not having to rush things around. I had a little trouble falling asleep last night and even was wide awake a bit earlier than 4am without any alarm. But I laid down half asleep until 6am then did the usual morning stuff before gym.

I implemented the machine assisted pull up as my trainer DebbyK suggested. In between my upper body sets, I sneaked in some pull up stuff with the machine. I used less assistance. Not sure the weight since the top 5 weight stacks above 10lbs weight stack weren't labeled so I just indicated how many weight stacks that I was using. I did total 15 reps of machine assisted pull up (overhand grip).

And as usual I also sneaked in some bodyweight leg stuff (6 sets hammies/posterior chain moves and 3 sets quad centric moves)

Tomorrow I might actually go to one of those Zumba classes at LA Fitness. Should be something fun and different to do on non weight day as now I have the time.

Glutes & Legs

I was not so energized this morning - more like mentally I think and I was going to take it easy.

Tried out BB Pliét Squat (with bar on back)- not bad. I think I could only squat in wide stance like this with back squat style- Front squat I need to keep my feet no wider than shoulder width or even narrower to get full depth.

Then head over to Hip Thrust.

Low and behold: because of my bad math, I actually Hip Thrusted much heavier than I thought, even with the warm up set -LOL! I was thinking I loaded 165lbs as my activation set and added 10-15 lbs from there. Towards the end, I was like, hey I didn't start off 165 but 185lbs! (2x45lbs + 2x25lbs + 45lbs bar = 185lbs) - Hahahaha!! I was so glad I actually did those for 8-10 reps!

Leg Press - I went up to 120lbs (weight on each side) and got 10 reps! My left foot cramped up a bit afterward that I had to stretch it out. These were hard sets!

Then some little accessories and finished off with some bodyweight back workout.

Glutes & Legs

Here's today's lower body workout. BAHT style for Deads and Back Squat - total killer..especially with superset. I totally understand now why only 4 sets and 4 exercises.

Hip Thrust only went regular set going heavy and after did heavy set I even didn't have much energy to do burn out sets but still did. Super hungry also!

I managed to do 15 reps with 120lbs - very hard last 5 reps though. I had to paused 1 sec at bottom before powering up. I might be able to squeeze one more rep but my form might erode. Geez even 2 sets DL warm up already taxing my cardio.

Back, Shoulders & Arms

Did similar rep range/sets style as my Tuesday lower body - heavy weights with high reps.

I took weights that I usually could do for 8-10 and pushed through 15 reps. Only main lifts - did 2 warm up sets for each main lifts and 2 working sets - trying out BAHT style. Very minimal rest other than switching/loading weight plates and recording my sets on my phone.

Such a killer! Hammer Shoulder Press destroyed me. Same as Hammer Wide Lat Pulldown. BB Row - I think I might skimp the last 2-3 reps to get full ROM.

Glutes & Legs Workout (heavy weights - high reps)

Basically today's workout were taking most of heavy weights that I usually do 10-12 and pushed to 15 or even a bit more if I still could have some in tank left but still could execute in proper form.

So I tested BAHT style set for my front squat. Holy crap, burning like hell but I got to get it over fast too..ha! Looks like 75lbs is my 15 hard reps.

Hip Thrust killed me. I had to lie there a bit after the lift to get over my little light headed..haha. People around me might wonder what the hell I did.

First time trying Rack pull. It's ok. Better than nothing and i didn't feel like doing Leg Press today.

Btw glad to hear you had a great run yesterday. It always motivating more to have a workout companion :)

Glutes & Legs

Today's workout wasn't too snazzy. My right foot (see attached picture) felt some sharp pain when I did the deadlift or whenever I tried to shift most of my weight to the right or pressing my entire foot on the ground, which was most proponent when doing the deadlift.

Once in a while, I do feel it when I walk or stepping using my right foot or whenever I shift most of my weight there.

Hip Thrust - OK. I was going to do pyramid but then I started having cramps so no pyramid.

And I wasn't dare enough to do squats so no squatting and focused more on hammies and lunges.

My stomach was eating up itself since I woke up. I thought it got a bit better after I had 1 Tbsp coconut oil upon waking up with my hot tea but then in the middle of workout it started out again. Usually it felt better after I had whey but not today. Stomach felt better and not eating itself after I had my solid fat/protein meal 30 minutes later.

Oh well overall today's workout was quite light for lower body.

Glutes & Legs

I'm giving my upper left back another rest today so no Deadlifts or lifting any heavy stuff horizontally. I should be ok by Tuesday, hopefully.

Warm up
Mobility drill
Bw squat

BB Hip Thrust (bench) / band abduction
2x135 x 12 - warm up
2x155lbs x 10
2x165lbs x 8

Bench was totally harder but I focused on the full ROM - so I let the BB plates touched the ground before I lifted up with my hips. Obviously couldn't go too heavy - even with 165lbs - I started to feel my quads and inner thighs to get burn towards the end of last 3 reps, which means I started to lose tension on my butt. I think I'll try using bench from now on and work my weight up from here again.


BB Back Squat / 30 breath plank hold
80lbs x 10
80 x 8 -hard last 2 reps
80 x 10

BW Bulgarian Split Squat
3x12-15@each

Single Standing Leg Press on pullup machine / one Leg RDL (hold 1 plate)
3x60lbsx12 @each / 3x25lbs x 12@each

All Leg Press machines were in use so I had to improvise using the Machine assisted pull up to do a single leg press (standing)

Lying Leg Curl
3x55lbs x 12 ( moved down 50lbs last 3 reps 3rd set)

One Leg 45° Hyper Ext
3x15@each
