I made a comment on a previous blog post about the lifting program I use. I have this thing about committing to a program since I did Body for Life many years ago and after 12 weeks I looked like a bloated marshmallow with some muscle underneath.
Since then I really have just stuck with the rule of picking compound exercises that are quad dominant, hip dominant, a unilateral leg movement, push, pull, and some kind of ab work and working them into straight sets, super sets, and giant sets. I used http://exrx.net/ as a guide to picking the exercises and rotate among them. I will say that since purchasing New Rules of Lifting for Women, I have been setting up the workouts similar to how Cosgrove has them. I usually write out my workout the night before looking at past exercises as a guide for what I'll do next.
I think after I do this 5 mile race on May 23rd I'm going to think about whether I'll actually do NROL4W as it's written or figure out what my next move is.
Once again, I will be purchasing plenty of fresh produce at the market this week. Keeping the water intake up and have my few cups of green tea every day.
Looking forward to a killer week!
