Between road biking and commuting, I put in a respectable number of miles on the bicycle.
Consequently, my legs are pretty damn strong.
Strong enough that usually weights don't make me sore the next day, so when I was at the gym Sunday pre-Superbowl party, I decided to do the workout that they call 'the board' which is posted on, natch, a board on the workout floor.
This one looked good, but not super hard for someone with legs of steel:
In case the photo isn't showing, that's "Push, Pull Squat"
3 x 20 push ups
3 x 20 cable chest presses
3 x 20 seated row
3 x 20 lat pulls
3 x 20 body weight squats
3 x 20 body weight alternate lunges
I added in some ab work, but holy crap.
That easy-looking workout kicked my ass. It's Monday night and I'm still sore.
I knew the shoulders would be sore because of the push ups, but they're way less sore than my quads.
Masters swim tonight was an adventure - of course we were doing sprints. I ran out of gas about 45 minutes in and only have myself to blame.
However, in the future, if I need a really good quick workout (this one took under 45 minutes), I know what I'll be doing.
