Strength workout!

Three times a week a go to the gym and have a strength workout.
I follow the Strong lifts program with 5x5 reps/sets on all exercises. This includes Squats, Bench press, Deadlift, Barebell row and Overhead press. I had to drop the squats because of a leg injury last week.
To the point, I started with something called "Dynamic warmup" this day. It consists of differnt stretching exercises to acchive better mobility.

  21. If that leg injury involved a joint, take it easy. Dynamic stretching exercises are definitely the way to go for a warmup; better at preventing injuries and can increase muscle output. Have you looked at the Army's PRT exercises?

    ReplyDelete
  22. no, but i will take a look. It's not a joint injury, it's a tendon that has been stretched

    ReplyDelete
  23. Rugby always was a risky sport

    ReplyDelete
  24. Looks like you've got a pretty good routine going. I tend to do similar exercises to you.
