My Week Of Workouts #4

I am proud to have my 4th installment of My Week Of Workouts out today!! I really like keeping track of what I am doing. It keeps me motivated and I like that it gives my readers an idea of my training.

If you didn't see last weeks, this has similar workouts. I think I should try to stick to similar routines, at least for a few weeks, to see any real improvement. I will try to start recording weight numbers too.


I recently got some new gear... I'm wearing a FILA top from Kohls.

HIIT and Chest

3 rounds of the cardio interval I found from Krissy before. I cut it short two rounds so that I could still do chest.
-1 min incline sprint
-20 box jumps (No box so I did tuck jumps)
-GHD sit ups (No GHD machine so I did V ups)
-100 jump ropes
-20 spilt jumps
-20 mountain climbers


Incline DB Press: 3x12 15#
Incline DB Fly: 3x12 10#

Flat Heavy DB Press: 5x12,12,AMRAP (#15,#20,#20,#25,#20)

Pec Deck: 4x12 (I kept around 30-40#range)
Pushups till failure 

Cable Crossovers: 4x12 (5#)
Flat DB Fly: 4x12 (15#)

Ended with some ab work

Today was a holiday, so no Teacher Workout!



I've said it before, I'll say it again. Back days tend to be the most difficult for me, NOT because it is a harder day, but because it is hard for me to work my back when I can't visually see it. Last week's session went better than today.

T-bar row 5x12 (The highest I went was 17.5#. Had to go down. I really wanted to feel my back working.)

Deadlift 5x12,12,10,8,8 (Progressed up in weight. I had a total of 80# at the end, 115# including the bar)

Behind back pulldowns 4x12 (around 30-35#)
Double arm row: 4x10 ES (Started with 20# but moved down to 15#.)

Back extensions 4x12 (25#)
Double arm row 4x12 (10# DBS)

Cable row 4x12 (Around 30#) 

I liked that I PRd on Deadlifts, but other than that I wasn't feeling it like I wanted to. Theres always next week!

I can't remember all the moves I did, but they included things like:
burpees, high knees, wall climbers, mountain climbers, jumping jacks, ext!

I was pretty pooed from that (plus sore from leg day). I did a 30-40 minute yoga class that I thought would be a hip opener... it was, but it was also harder than I imagined it would be! Haha.

What have you been doing this week?
