    Default Dkress Training Journal

    I am relatively new to the workout world. I started working out November 2013. I have been following Pauline Nordins plans. Starting Monday I am going to start more body weight work. I feel like I need to strengthen my core strength and body weight abilities before I can push myself further. My goals in the next six months are to be able to do pull ups for reps, push ups without wanting to puke, and I'd love to be able to do hanging toe touches for reps. If anyone has any advice please share! Again I consider myself new to this world so I will eat up any pointers I can get.

    Hey girl! I'm stoked that you decided to start a journal here!

    She's so humble! Met this mama a year ago and she has made some impressive progress in that time. She may appear be a newbie but she trains smart and lifts like a badass!

    Welcome to RX.

    Just hang out with Sunny during her training, if she allows it and she'll teach you everything you'll need to know.

    ^That could be detrimental to her health, LOL! She's actually training alongside the badassest female lifter in our gym (not counting a certain pro), who has many years of experience.

    Sunny, and she's been kicking my ass... I'm still sore from Friday's glute/hammy workout. We finished with a circuit that made me want to puke.
    Squat jump 10,8,6,4,2
    Feet elevated pushups 5
    30# dbs front squats 5
    30# dbs bilateral rows 5
    Squat thrust 10,8,6,4,2
    Repeat 5 times

    Our workout before that was
    Cable crunches 50# 4x10
    Cable pull throughs 57.5# 3x10
    Box jump squats 3x10
    Glute thrust 4x10 (65#,85#,105#,115#)

    As much as I love Pauline Nordins workouts, I need to switch it up. I'm starting Frank Medranos plan tomorrow.

    I thought I was at a decent place with my strength until today... I am taking some time to focus on building body weight strength and nothing was more humbling then today. Here's what I did...

    10 band static pull ups
    10 pushups
    10 hanging leg raises
    30 squats
    30 second chin up hold
    10 bench dips
    All of those back to back no rest until after dips, 90 second rest, repeat 4 times.

    After that, my friend and I did a circuit
    40 seconds of squat jumps
    20 second rest
    40 seconds of pledge planks
    20 second rest
    40 second r Side plank
    20 rest
    40 second glute thrust
    20 rest
    40 second l side plank
    Repeat two times

    It may sound easy. It probably should have been easy, but I'm pooped...

    It was extremely humbling realizing how weak I actually am. I can't wait to see what four weeks from now looks like. The program calls for this Monday Wednesday and Friday. I'm supposed to rest in between, but you know I can't do that
