Climbers training log
« on: July 02, 2007, 04:34:31 AM »
Taking it easy on bench/pressing due to tendon injury.

Weight: fluctuates around 83-85 kg
Body fat: Around 17% (very rough guess)
Height: 5' 8" (173 cm)

Mon: Back/Biceps
Wed: Chest/Triceps
Fri: Legs

30-45 minutes of cardio/abs after weights every workout.

All weights in my log are in kilograms. Multiply numbers by 2.2 to convert to pounds.

Good to see you start a log mate :). Sorry to hear about the tendonitis, no direct arm work would drive me crazy i think :-\. We seem to be about the same weight atm mate but I'm prob a touch taller at a little over 5'9 . What would a normal split be for you without the arm problems?

Leg day

Squats: 60x20x1, 80x15x1, 100x10x1, 120x4x1, 120x3x1 // squatted very deep today.
Shrugs: 140*12x6, 100*20*2

Also did leg extensions, leg curls, hyper extensions, and calves.

Note: Shrugs weren't scheduled for today, but felt I need to build my traps for heavier squats.

What would a normal split be for you without the arm problems?

Yeah mate, no direct arm work does drive me crazy, but I think it'll be worth it in the long run. Normal split is:
Mon: Shoulders & Legs
Wed: Chest + Triceps
Fri: Back + Biceps
