I’m finally back! Today I started a new workout routine. It is intense and I love it!

Here you go, folks!

Planet Fitness, Ft. Gratiot

Superset: Leg Press and Calf Press combined with a pyramid

  • Leg Press 1x50, 1×40, 1×30, 1×20, 1×10, 1×10, 1×20, 1×30, 1×40, 1×50
  • Calf Press 1x50, 1×40, 1×30, 1×20, 1×10, 1×10, 1×20, 1×30, 1×40, 1×50

If you’re new to lifting, a superset requires one set, followed immediately by another. In this case, you do one set of leg presses, followed by a set of calf presses on the leg press machine with no rest between. Once you’ve completed an iteration, you take a break. That’s it in a nutshell. The pyramids involve starting light with a set of 50, going heavier at 40, going heavier at 30, 20, 10 and so on. Then, to complete the pyramid, you start at 10 reps and increase 10 reps each superset back up to 50. So light down to heavy, heavy up to light. I enjoy pyramids because they insure you work the muscle group hard.

 

Decline crunches 5 sets to failure.

That was it for today, folks.

See you at the finish line!
