I finally get to do a strength workout again! The last couple of conditioning workouts have been great since it’s been awhile since I’ve done interval training/cardio, and I’ve been very pleased with how well my body has held up. It’s been awesome to see how much lifting improves every aspect of fitness – not just strength. But anyway, I have missed lifting for strength 4+ times per week, so I’m excited to get back into it today.
I’m also working on filming some of my workouts to get familiar with making videos to put on my Youtube channel. I will probably upload one soon – nothing fancy, just some clips from my workouts. Eventually I want to do voice-overs and vlogs, so you can be on the lookout for that as well.
Now on to today’s workout! I’ve substituted deadlifts for back squats as the first exercise since I don’t have a squat rack so I’m not able to do really heavy back squats. When I squat I usually just do 95# front squats, but today I want to go way heavier than that so I’m going to do deadlifts instead. I’ve also substituted Kettlebell SDHP for the Cable Face Pull exercise.
