Barbell Floor Press Challenge Week 60

by

Joseph

 

I made it to the gym last Saturday, and the place was more crowded than during the week. Here are the results of the workout:

 

Saturday, July 13, 2019
 
machine iso-lateral high row
 
320 lb (or 160 in each hand separately x5x4, right, 160 lb each hand x5x4 left, 
standing fixed barbell overhead press and hold
 
110 x 5x25s
 
dumbbell row
 
70 lb x10x4
 
All of the Olympic bars were in use, so I made best use of the equipment available. Hopefully, I can get access to one of the Olympic bars when I get back to the gym this week. 
 
When I exercise again, I'll be lifting heavy weights.
 
I'll keep you posted.

Barbell Floor Press Challenge Week 59

by

Joseph

I had a good workout last week. Here are the results:

 

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

lateral pulldown neutral grip
150x5x5
 
standing fixed barbell overhead press and hold
 
110 x 5x25s
 
inclined pushups
 
20x1

 

It was a crowded, busy day at the gym, and several of the machines, as well as the Olympic bars, were being used by other members. Not to be deterred, I made do with what was available. 

It has been some time since I did a barbell press and hold; 110 pounds is lightweight for me, but it did provide for some pressing exercises. I started out with neutral grip lateral pulldowns because that station was the only one open at the time, and I needed to be doing something. I should have done more sets, but I wanted to d some overhead presses, so I stopped with five. I rounded the day out with twenty inclined pushups.

When I get back to the gym, I'll be doing more overhead presses - hopefully with the Olympic bar.

I'll keep you posted.

Barbell Floor Press Challenge Cardio Before Weights

by

Joseph

I should be able to fit some time into my schedule to return to the gym this weekend. It has been more than one month since I worked out with heavy weights. I need to get back to what I enjoy doing; cardio is fine, but it is no substitute for heavy weight training. 

I've written and published numerous articles about the benefits of cardiovascular exercise and strength training with heavy weights. You also know that I have a strong preference for intense strength training. 

But whichever you choose, both are healthier than sitting around doing nothing.

I look forward to when I will be pressing heavy weights overhead, and rowing heavy, too. 

I'll keep you posted.

Barbell Floor Press Challenge Cardio Exercise Workout Before Weightlifting

by

Joseph

I will be returning to the gym very soon. In the meantime, I set aside time for stair climbing. Aerobics is no substitute for heavy weight training, but it is still exercise. I will be putting in a lot of strength training workouts, so the cardio is a decent prep in and of itself. 

I'll keep you posted.

Barbell Floor Press Challenge Aerobic Exercises

by

Joseph

I did not go to the gym last week. I performed cardiovascular exercises throughout the week, it kept me from becoming sedentary. I hope to get back to the gym by the second week of June and I'll be lifting heavy weights.

I'll keep you posted.

Barbell Floor Press Challenge Aerobic Workout

by

Joseph

Once again I opted to do cardiovascular exercise rather than not workout at all. Stair climbing is by no means a substitute for heavy weight training but it is better than sitting down all day long. My workload is keeping me busy to the point I have not been able to get to the gym to exercise, and when I do get free time, it's not feasible to head over to the gym.

When I am able to get back to the gym, I will be doing heavy weight lifting; I miss it and I need to be doing it. 

I'll keep you posted.

Barbell Floor Press Challenge Cardio Exercises

by

Joseph

Once again I got my fitness training outside the gym. I set aside a certain amount of time each day for stair climbing exercises; my cardiovascular workouts do not replace my weight lifting exercises, though. I do look forward to getting back to the gym for intense weight lifting. I'll be lifting at the amounts mentioned previously.

I'll keep you posted.

Barbell Floor Press Challenge Workout Cardiovascular

by

Joseph

 

I did not go to the gym last week. Since I have not been weight lifting as often as I'd like, I do a lot more stair climbing than in the past. Exercising with heavy weights is one of my greatest motivators, and I look forward to working out with heavy weights again soon. 

When I do return to the gym, it will be to increase all of my lifting numbers.

 

I'll keep you posted.

Barbell Floor Press Challenge Cardiovascular Exercise

by

Joseph

 

Once again I did not exercise at the gym. I performed a lot of stair climbing to at least give my body regular cardiovascular workouts. I really don't like the frequent gaps between weight lifting workouts, I've been a heavy lifter for many years now. Aerobic exercises keep the blood pumping and promote increased oxygenation to the cells of the body, but I miss working out with heavy weights. When I do (eventually) get back to the gym, I'll be lifting heavy.

I'll keep you posted.
