    Share your workout!

    I spend a lot of time online reading the blogs that other fitness writers post.  I've discovered (and so has Alice!) that there's a lot of information out there that can really add to our gym experience.  I can't tell you the number of times we've read about a killer workout someone else devised that Alice and I thought would be worth giving a try.  (Our most recent was the 100 pull-up/200 push-up workout.  Wow!!)

    My current workout is for developing mass, so I'm doing a lot of low rep/high weight exercises.  Basically my workout looks like this:

    • Monday - upper body mass workout, karate class (2 hrs)
    • Tuesday - AM cardio (HIIT 25 min)
    • Wednesday - karate class (2 hrs)
    • Thursday - AM cardio (HIIT 25 min)
    • Friday - lower body mass workout, karate class (2.5 hrs)
    • Saturday - random workout (like the 200/100 workout mentioned above)
    • Sunday - off

    I'm doing Rippetoe's starting strength program:

    Workout A:

    Squats 3x5 (ATG)
    Bench 3x5
    Deads 1x5
    Dips 2x8 (optional but I do them)

    Workout B:
    Squats 3x5 (ATG)
    Overhead Press 3x5
    Power Cleans/Rows (I choose the latter) 3x5
    Pull-ups/Chin-ups 2x8 (also optional)

    Week 1: Mon/Wed/Fri A/B/A
    Week 2: Mon Wed/Fri B/A/B

    Eat a lot of protein, and everything goes up 5 lbs per workout until you can't anymore.

    Simple, and thus far effective.

    Looks like a great workout, Chris. I expect your goals are to add mass to an already existing muscle base?

    Love seeing other people's workouts. Gives me new things to try! ;-) Thanks!
