Galen's Daily Battle with Himself

Postby Galen » Thu Jan 05, 2017 4:43 am

This will be my training journal. I have some minor experience in different sports from ages ago and did some physical training, but didnt do anything worth mentioning for the last two years.

Age: 27 years

Height: 180 cm

Weight: 88 kg

Sex: male

First goal is to start exercising regularly and gain some strength, endurance and flexibility.

# Morning Mobility


# Training in the morning:

inverted rows


12 sets x 3 reps in 7 minutes

push ups

11 sets x 5 reps in 7 minutes

bulgarian split squat (BSS)

3 sets x 12 right/12 left with 1 min rest

crunches with pausing at top

3 x 20 with 1 min rest

superman with pausing at top

3 x 15 with 1 minute rest

# training in the evening


20 min on stationary bike at 125 bpm -> not much of an effort, more of a active recovery thing atm. this will hopefully increase my work capacity faster and maybe I'll make an endurance session out of it later.

# Morning Mobility


# Training in the morning:

inverted rows

7 sets x 4 reps + 3 x 3 in 7 min


push ups

6 sets x 8 reps in 7 min

high step ups on table


3 sets x 8 reps/leg with 1 min rest

crunches with pause at top

3 x 25, 1 min rests

superman with pause on top


3 x 15, 1 min rests

# training in the evening


20 min on stationary bike at 125 bpm

# commentary


push ups went suprisingly well, inverted rows were disappointing. I felt it more in the biceps than in my back maybe because my feet slip on the surface. need to adjust the setup and look up technique.
