Yesterday I gave you my thoughts on the Triple Threat program so far (in this post). I had a busy work day yesterday so I didn’t get around to doing the Day 14 workout until evening (when I was already tired of course). When I finished I was sweaty and delightfully exhausted, and a little sore. The thrusters were the hardest part for me – they are so much more challenging than they look! It had been awhile since I had done them, so I scaled them by doing 8 reps instead of 10, and I used 65#.
Today’s workout is strength focused (yay!) I only made a few adjustments to the exercises, substituting dumbbells for a barbell, rings for dumbbells, and weight plates for a med ball. This is the kind of workout I’m accustomed too, so I should be able to push myself really well without too much trouble.
I’ve been noticing some pain in my lower back for the last few days, so I’m going to post about the exercises and stretches I do to remedy that later today. Hopefully it helps some of you who deal with the same thing!
Chest Press (4×6)
Bent Over Barbell Row (4×6)
Giant set: 3×8 reps of the following exercises.
Single Arm Dumbbell Row
Chest Fly (Rings)
Superset: 3x 10 reps
Plate Pushup (One hand on 2 50 lb. weight plates)
