One Week Into Training-Build, Build, Build!

Alright, I am 1 week into training, and I am feeling GREAT!! Yesterday was chest/back/abs day-and I already felt so much stronger! I was able to do 2 reps on my 1 rep. max from last week on the flat bench press! We also were able to bump up the weight on several other things too-woohoo! It's amazing how the body works, isn't it??

I was doing some research last week about training. I came across an article written by a trainer who has done and continues to do body building competitions. He said that in his years of training, and the many methods he has tried, working each muscle group to the point of failure (meaning, you couldn't possibly even do one more rep) once a week produces the most muscle growth and the best results. I had my doubts, but after applying that philosophy this week (this is also what my trainer believes) and already noticing a difference, I am a believer. Very interesting!

Here's where I am workout schedule wise:

Mondays:

AM: Chest/Back/Abs
PM: Teach 45 minute cycle class, 10 min. abs

Tuesdays:

Cardio of some sort. Today I am subbing a Boot Camp class.

Wednesdays:

Legs/Triceps/Abs
Every other Wednesday morning I teach cycle.

Thursday:

Functional Fusion class (Core) or light cardio

Friday:

Bicepts/Shoulders/Abs

Saturday:

Teach Kickboxing

So as of now, I am on track and feeling great! Workouts are good. Eating is good. I'm excited!

there's a part of me that thinks you're insane and the other part is a bit jealous of your insanity!
