Strength Training Journal 8114

Strength Training Program Prelim.
After hurting myself trying out my new toy/training system, I took wise counsul and decided to do a ramp week. That week is this week.

Suspended Lunge 5ea
Single Leg Squat 5ea
Sprinter's Start 5ea
Hamstring Curls 6
Press 5
Hamstring Bicycle 10 (I don't like this one)
High Bicep Curl 9
Triceps Press 7
High Rotation 5ea
Side Plank 5ea (difficult for me right now)
Suspended Crunch 5

Total Time =12min 19sec
I kinda supersetted the whole routine. There is supposed to be 8 minutes of rest in this system. Opps. I very much like to keep the heart rate high while doing strength training.
Average BPM 151
Max BPM 172
I'll be ready to start the 12 week program next week.

The Challenge

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more, Or close the wall up with our English dead! In peace there's nothing so becomes a man As modest stillness and humility; But when the blast of war blows in our ears, Then imitate the action of the tiger: Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood. William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616), King Henry V, Act 3 scene 1

Once again I've tossed sanity reason and self preservation to the wind.
Triple Bypass 2008, I waiting for you.

Have a Bi-Polar new year.
