I mentioned on Tuesday that I was doing body part splits in the gym this week, basically just to switch it up. I felt like lifting heavier than I normally do (which is still pretty heavy), and also didn’t feel like getting up early enough to do my usually upper/lower/full body workout, or whatever the flavor of the month may be.

I just get bored so easily.

I thought I’d share the entire week with ya.

A Week In Lifts

Legs: walking lunges (5 x 20), step ups (4 x 10 each leg), deadlifts (5 x 8), single leg angled press (4 x 8 each leg)

Shoulders & Chest: click here

Back: pullups (5 x 8), seated row (4 x 8), lat pulldowns (4 x 10), prone incline rear delt fly (4 x 10)

Biceps & Triceps: pushups (5 x 20), triceps dips (5 x 8), overhead triceps ext (4 x 10), seated incline biceps curls (4 x 10), hammer curls (4 x 10)

Let is just be said that I never work biceps and triceps alone, ever. This may have only been my 4th or 5th time of doing so in over 10 years of lifting. I hate working biceps. I hate working chest. I hate working abs. I think I have gone through entire competition preps getting away with doing 5 biceps exercises. Boo. Hiss.

It was fun, but next week I’ll probably go back to my normal routine, which is hilarious since I don’t really have a routine at all.

What was your favorite workout this week?

    O_O it actually sounds really hard. BUT. Lifting is great strength training! Thanks for sharing :)

    I get bored easily too. THat’s why I’m ALWAYS mixing it up.

    When I was hard-core and lean, I used to spend and entire hour doing biceps or doing triceps- gah, no thanks! I used to LOVE abs, now I hate them- what’s with that?

    Hmmm, what was my fave workout? so many: zumba, a gorgeous hike, another dance class, crazy step- couldn’t choose! :-)

    Thanks for sharing a week-in-the-life with us!

    I do the same workout every morning but never get tired of it – an hourlong hike up to the top of these cliffs by my house that look out to the ocean. It’s a pain to get up there day after day, but the view makes it worth the pain!

      I would never get tired of that either. It sounds beautiful!

    Work it! hehe. Sometimes it’s good to remind yourself why you do what you do.

    Right now, at seven months pregnant running has gone from four times a week to one or two and I walk a couple miles every day. Thats about that!

    you’re built like a superhero…you work your bi’s like once…and you’re golden. Then there’s me. Dying to put on size. And grunting w/ the guys to get there! :)
