Phew. There’s a rather large pool of sweat slowly drying on the floor here; largely resulting from the extreme humidity at the moment.
With an appropriate measure of cool water on standby, I followed the same routine as last week; albeit at a much faster pace (the other major factor in the pool of sweat) and with shorter rests between sets. This was the hamstring-burning combination of box squats, romanian deadlifts, seated good mornings and the ever-popular GHRs (with push-up assistance). If the soreness following last week’s session is any indication, tomorrow should be a lot of fun.
Box squat (50cm) 2×10@20kg, 4×5@60kg
Romanian deadlift (platform – 16cm) 2×5@60kg, 3×5@70kg
Good morning (seated) 5×5@20kg
Glute-ham raise (push-up assisted) 5×5@bw
Hanging knee raise (with medicine ball) 4×10@bw+2kg
Hanging knee twist (with medicine ball) 4×20@bw+2kg
Total time : 43 mins
Note: the dynamic and isometric stretching weren’t included in the above time, but they still found their way into the workout.
