Reply To: 2018 Training Log


I finished an 8 week rowing workout and followed it with a Fasting Mimicking Diet.

Now my training will be standard barbell and dumbbell work until the end of the year.

5 Nov

Bench Press – 4 x 8 x 50kg
Pull Ups – 4 x 6
Push Press – 4 x 6 x 40kg
BB Row – 4 x 8 x 40kg
EZ Curl – 3 x 8 x 16kg, 1 x 8 x 18.5kg

This was really relaxed as I know I’m going to be very sore whatever I do, so nothing to be gained from making it a week of soreness.

6 Nov

Back Squat – 3 x 6 x 60kg
RDL – 3 x 8 x 60kg
DB Lunge – 3 x 8 x 20kg
Lateral Lunge – 3 x 10 x 10kg (plate)
Single Leg Calf Raise – 3 x 10

Again, not using heavy weight, merely getting the movement pattern back and ensuring I’m not so sore I can’t train legs again later in the week. I meant to do a vert test but I forgot. It’s very likely that after just one session back I will jump higher by the end of the week. It will be interesting to compare with the end of the last vert program as I’ve done no jumping since then, only rowing.
