So funny today I thought I was going to have a nice Yoga X day and when I signed in to log in my workout I found out my scheduled workout was The Challenge. Talk about forced rallying! If your mind isn’t right for The Challenge, it can be a very long 30 minutes. I picked my numbers and stuck with them through the workout. 30 pull-downs and 20 push-ups times 8 with a burnout session at the end. Right now these are my numbers and I am good with them. Since I am doing pull downs instead of pull ups my numbers are fairly high with a 50 lb resistance band set up. This works endurance, speed, and finishes with strength since I am almost failing at the end of the 30. Should help a bunch with swimming. What do you think your numbers would be? Needless to say, my arms were toast after that. Such a great hypertrophy workout. I could feel the water rushing in to the muscles! So important to hydrate and drink a good recovery drink after a hard workout like that. Water and glycogen help to repair the microtearing and aid in building lean muscle 🙂 This is a good thing! This evening I got on the foam roller and worked out some issue spots. I love my rumbleroller! Looking forward to an awesome day tomorrow!
