Another crazy workout night

Started out with an hour of spinning. The real thing. Then a 30-minute run with Mike.

Afterwards, I went to the gym. Thought I’d stay for 2 hours; ended up close to 3.

I call this my super-nasty gym workout:

1 hour machines (each 3 X 12)
1 row 110
2 overhead pull 100
3 chest 110
4 fly 80
5 abs 60
6 calves 210-220-240
7 abs/triceps machine 135
8 arm pull, golf swing 110 each side 3 X 12 X 2
9 arm raise 40 only 8 reps (try out)
10 arm pullover 40 only 8 reps (try out)
11 selectorized pull-up (8 X 5, 60 resistance)
12 selectorized dips (8 X 5, 60 resistance)
13 back 170

1.5 hour weights
1 assisted chest press 45 (3 X 12) and then 25 (1 X 12)
2 chest press 40
3 curls 40 each arm (3 X 3 try out)
4 biceps 50 both arms, slow and smooth
5 tricep pull 50 slow
6 row 140
7 incline leg press 630 (first time in a while; usually at 540)
8 incline leg lift 630

I end up doing the machines I like. I just naturally gravitate towards a number of them; I don’t do bikes, ellipticals, stairs, or even the treadmill. There just isn’t enough time.

My upper body is pretty strong, but I have a ways to go. I don’t know if it’s genetics, but the strongest part of my body are easily my legs. Now the task is to make the upper body catch up with my legs.  Funny thing–my legs actually look very normal (nothing like those power lifters).

Can’t say this is the worst crazy workout. Let’s just say I’m used to it. I’m just getting started. I’ll be pinpointing the most important exercises and then focus solely on those if I want to get stronger for multisports.
