Triple Threat – Day 1 (Hypertrohpy)

As some of you know, I usually write my own workout plans, but once in awhile I find a workout program online that I really want to try. I’ve plateaued a bit with my current training plan so I decided to search for a different program on bodybuilding.com. I wasn’t disappointed – I’m really pumped about the 4-week program I found – Triple Threat.

I’m excited about this plan because it combines the three main elements of fitness – strength, conditioning, and muscle building. It’s one of those programs where you get out of it what you put in, so I’m looking forward to pushing myself in new ways this coming month.

Below is an overview of the first workout. I have modified a couple of the exercises to suit the equipment I have in my home gym.

 

DAY 1 – HYPERTROPHY

 

Barbell Squat

2-3 Warmup Sets

5 rounds of 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off. (I’ll be using 95 lbs.)

 

Weighted Hip Bridges

5 sets of:

  • 3x 12
  • 2x 25
  • Rest 1-2 minutes

 

Barbell Walking Lunge

3 sets of 10 reps per leg, rest 1-2 minutes.

 

SUPERSET:

 

Leg Extension (Machine)

3 sets of 15, little to no rest.

 

Single Leg Deadlift

3 sets of 15, rest 1 minute.

 

Superman

3 sets of 15, pause for 5 seconds at the top of each rep. Rest 1 minute.

 

I’m excited to do this workout, and I’ll be keeping you posted on my progress as the month goes on! What workout are you doing today? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

  1. Omg YES! This is sometimes what I do too! — honestly, isn’t it hard to always come up with a different workout regimen? for me it can be exhausting , fun and yet very complicated because we make our own workouts and they are trial and error and some last longer than others. I do the same thing, I will get on fitness websites (reputable) and find some ideas like yourself, I think we are allowed for days off from creating our own.

    I had not heard of this program before, so I am eager to see how well you do and what all goes with it, who knows, I might take it from ya! haha.
