So, I’ve currently been focusing on weight loss after a pretty successful bulking season. A lot of strength and dense muscle was built. I finished at 142 pounds (I’m 5’6.5″) with a max bench of 140 lbs, 265lb squat and a 360 conventional deadlift (375 sumo). Needless to say I was quite pleased and proud of myself.
I stayed away from the scale and used my physical appearance (mainly abdominal definition) as a guideline when increasing macros. I started dieting and cutting back slowly at the end of June. As of August 11, I got down to 129lbs. Never starving myself, although I’m always hungry, and not doing endless hours of cardio.
Since my calories have been restricted, I’m focusing more on endurance and hypertrophy training, rather than strength. Soooo, I woke up Saturday morning feeling rather ambitious. I laid in bed and constructed this plan totaling 1000 reps. Yes, that’s correct, ONE THOUSAND REPS!!
While doing it, I wanted to quit. I wanted to rest and rest some more…but I didn’t allow it. I made a plan and by golly I was going to see it through. All the while telling myself “don’t die, don’t die, don’t die”! And what do you know?! I survived and in a time much shorter than I thought. 70 minutes, start to finish, including rest and brief interruptions from fellow gym-goers.
So, without further ado, here is the format as well as a little video of some of the exercises. Please give it a shot if you’re feeling froggy and wanna jump! And please let me know what you think if you do!!
*If you feel dizzy or have any abnormal pain, please stop the workout immediately. Go at your own pace and do what you’re capable of. But most of all, have fun and be safe!
