Monday Deadlift Workout
I’m changing things up a bit for about a month and am going to workout 5 or 6 days a week, with no cardio in the traditional sense. No running, jogging, biking, etc.
It should be cool.
A lot of people still think that you have to do lots of cardio to lose fat and it’s just not true. Over the past 3 weeks I’ve done cardio maybe twice, and by that I mean cardio in the way most people think about it.
I still do cardio, but it comes from my resistance workouts and bodyweight circuits, 4 minute workouts, etc.
To me one of the most boring activities is sitting on a piece of cardio equipment and hammering out a workout. It makes my brain hurt just thinking about it.
Why would you want to pedal or jog to nowhere when there’s better ways to lose fat or stay healthy?
OK, I’m off my soap box…for now, but I’ll soon be hopping back on.
Anyway, here’s my workout from today.
It was a big deadlift workout along with 4 minute arms workout and 4 minute abs workout at the end.
Warm-up for 5 minutes:
1A) Push-ups x 10
1B) Bodyweight Squat x 10
1C) Wood Chop x 15
2) Deadlift – 10, 5, 3, 2, 2, 2, 1 This felt awesome and I can still “feel” how intense this was and I’ve been done for over 2 hours now.
4 Minute Arms Circuit – as many supersets as possible in 4 minutes
3A) DB Triceps Extension – 8
3B) DB Bicep Curl – 8
4 Minute Abs Circuit – as many supersets as possible in 4 minutes
4A) Push-up w/Jack Knife – 10
4B) Jump Squat – 10
This was a good workout. I felt great when I was done and my daughter kept asking me if the weight was heavy to which I grunted “Yeeesssss” while doing my deadlifts.
