Monday – Rest
Wednesday – Triceps & Chest
Friday – Cardio.. SPRINTS!
Monday was an extra rest day because working out our back from friday caused all of us to have extreme pain. The pain was so intense on sunday that no matter what sleeping position I tried to be in there was the feeling of pins and needles all over my upper and lower back. I took a trip to “La La Land” by downing some pain killers, and even through the pills knocked me out the pain was still there.
Wednesday was back to back HIIT of Triceps and Chest. It’s a nice burning combination and workout. You see we wore out our Triceps first, so when we HIIT Chest, our Triceps stood by to watch while our Chest did all the work.
Friday (Today). Sprints at a park. After I was done with sprinting and was laying on the ground gasping for air there was a scene from the movie 300 that popped in my head.
You know at the end of the movie where it boiled down to the few Spartans against the Persians. Where King Leonidas threw the spear at Xerxes and while he was doing that Dilios (The Narrator) said
“His helmet was stifling, it narrowed his vision. And he must see far. His shield was heavy. It threw him off balance. And his target is far away.”
Yeah that entire scene played throughout my head while I was trying to recover. Maybe I “blacked” out again, haha. I’m still trying to figure out why the hell this scene popped in my head. All I can say is the pain came from everywhere. It was the legs, ass, abs, chest, arms, shoulders, back, and neck. No muscle group was spared. Everyone of them was worked out hard.
Oh and a we started up a tradition after doing our HIIT sessions where we get a football and starting playing catch BUT if you drop the ball you either do 5 push ups or 1 burpee. The game always starts off fun and relaxing, then it eventually turns into everyone throwing bullet passes to make the other person put in work.
Last but not least starting week 5 I’m going to start cardio on my non-hiit days. I’m just going to walk it at first but eventually I want to start running uphill. I would try to attempt running the whole thing but downhill hella fucks up my knees and shins. Damn price of being fat. The best place to go running is on a track at my local high school but it’s Track and Field season and it doesn’t end until April or May so I’ll just wait until then.
