Week off plan

Posted by thepeteplan on April 8, 2008

As I’m in the heat chamber for 3 sessions this week I don’t have the time or energy to do a full week of training on the erg as well. Monday was another 1hr 40mins of leg pressing, but the hottest condition yet, and dispite drinking a lot of water I still lost over 2lbs, so erg training was off.

Training – Tuesday:

10k = 36:27.4 / 1:49.3 / 25

2k splits:

1:51.8 / 25

1:50.5 / 25

1:49.7 / 25

1:48.9 / 25

1:45.7 / 26

Chin ups: 4/3/3

Inverted rows: 5 sets of 5

Bench press: 60kg, 3 sets of 8

The 10k should have been steady at the pace I started, but after 2 days off the erg it felt pretty easy so I let the pace drift faster. From next week I will try to fit in 2 dedicated weights sessions each week, so was trying out a couple of new exercises today. Chin ups I have never been good at – I can do sets of 3 with a short rest lots of times, but can’t do many more at once. The inverted rows are done on a smith machine pivoting on the heels with┬ábody straight pulling up from the floor to chest on the bar. Seems like it could be a good exercise to put into a back routine.
