Workout Of The Day

Riffing on last Wednesday's workout, I'd like to keep up with the same basic approach today.

I don't want to sound like a broken record, but it is important to keep one's objectives in mind at all times, especially when it comes to exercise. Aimless workouts are good for a breath of fresh air, a week here or there, but at the end of the day, we're exercising for a reason. My reason is (currently) to become a stronger runner, and that involves shedding some upper body mass and increasing my endurance base (mileage).

To that end, I'm electing to repeat last Wednesday's workout - but increase the resistance on the weights slightly. I don't have to worry about building or retaining upper body mass because this workout isn't hefty enough to warrant that kind of concern. As for running, I might choose to run a little farther today, but at the minimum, I should run no less than I have run throughout the week.

Today's workout is as follows:

  • 3 x 10 burpees w/ pull-up
  • 3 x 10 overhead/Arnold press
  • 3 x 10 lateral raises
  • 3 x 10 hanging leg raises
  • 45-55 minute run
