Training update

Somehow it slipped my mind, but I have a new training program, as of last week. I'm now only weight training 2 days a week, doing one upper and one lower body workout. Easy, you say? Yeah, that's what I thought - till I opened my program and discovered that it starts with a warm up of 25 pushups. That's a warm up?

So, it's actually less exercises and training less often, but still 3 sets of 8 reps....which means that I've had to increase the weights I'm using. Still figuring out what's appropriate there, but I'm loving having more time to spend on other stuff - like...er...cardio?

Oh joy of joys, oh rapture of raptures!! More cardio!
You're right, there's something very twisted about putting 25 pushups and warm up together!
Can't wait to hear more about your program as you go through!

Chekc out 'The Power of 10" book. I love the principle there...SLOW lifting. You do less reps /workouts, and you really feel it.

Oh this is good to hear. I am doing only two sessions (full body) per week and was wondering if I should do more. I try to do a cycle or swim on a 3rd day. My workouts are full on hard work though and I'm still sore for 2 days after each. :) yeah
