Week 4: Body-Fat Shredding

It’s been 4 weeks with this workout and I’m really happy with the results. My clothes are fitting great; I’m stronger than I’ve been, yet smaller in size which feels great! Check out my final week of this workout below.

Stretching…

Workout:

Deadlift 3 x 5 (2 minute rest)
Max weight was 170 lbs. (Up 5 more lbs. over last week!)

Superset Chinups and Dips 3 x 5 each (1 minute rest)
I was able to do 3 sets of chinups using on 80 lbs. of resistance before moving up to 90 lbs. for the last 2 sets.

For dips, I did my body weight all 5 sets.

 

Farmer’s Walk 4 x 30 yds. (2 minute rest)
Stayed at 35 lbs and it was much easier! 

Missed the 2-a-day again…. This is just tough for me to work in!

75% Sprints 8-16 rounds (90 seconds – 2 minute recovery)
Did a bunch of stretching before. 16 rounds of sprints followed by still more stretching. Feeling GREAT!

Stretching

Workout:

Dumbbell Bench 3-5 x 8-10 (45 second rests)
I paid attention and did 4 sets at 40 lbs. My final set, I pushed it up to 42.5 lbs and hit 10 reps! Felt great!

I added an extra set — did 4 sets at 40 lbs.

1 arm dumbbell row 3-5 x 8-10 (45 second rests)
Got 3 sets at 35 lbs. and then moved up for the last 2 sets to 37.5 lbs.

Tire pulls 5 x 20 yds (1 minute rest)
Got all the girls to join this morning! Two of us pulled 2 tires and the other 2  just sprinted. It was a great workout. AND FUN!

Thursday:

Run from Tuesday OR brisk walk for 30-60 minutes

I got up a little early and did some stretching for rushing out the door.

Friday:

Stretching!!

Workout:tnationday5

Front Squat 4-5 x 3-5 (1 minute rest)
I really like the strap approach that Seth taught me last week. I maxed at 125 lbs.!

Pullup 4-5 x 3-5 (1 minute rest)
I was able to do three sets at 80 lbs., and then I needed to move up to 90 lbs. for the last 2 sets.

Clean & Press 4-5 x 3-5 (1 minute rest)
I did all 5 sets using 85 lbs. It was tough, but it felt great to get through and I really feel strong!

Workout calls for alacate conditioning later in the day (apparently these short, intense workouts don’t produce lactic acid and don’t cause a burn). No time, yet again.
