Friday

The larger gym at my work opened its hours to Friday. I had never been over there as everyone says it gets really crowded, so I'd stuck to the smaller one. Today, I found that the large gym will allow me to expand my workout to include more specific rugby training. It has an indoor basketball court and outdoor soccer field which I will utilize for rugby sprint and agility drills plus kicking practice. Also, it has jump boxes! Boxes are 6" tall with 1" lost when stacking. I'll be adding a whole lot more fitness goals to my PLP soon.


Morning Workout 40 min
  • Stretch and Warm Up 5 min
  • Box Jumps (1 set 10 reps 16" high, 3 sets 10 reps 21" high) 10 min
  • Overhead Bar Press (3 sets 10 reps 50, 60, 70 lbs) 5 min
  • Fly Machine (1 set 10 reps 50 lbs, 3 sets 10 reps 65 lbs) 5 min
  • Reverse Fly Machine (1 set 10 reps 50 lbs, 3 sets 10 reps 65 lbs) 5 min
  • Shoulder Lift Machine (1 set 10 reps 50 lbs, 3 sets 10 reps 65 lbs) 5 min
  • Cool Down and Stretch 5 min

Lunchtime Training (worked through lunch)


Evening Workout 20 min
  • Stretch 3 min
  • Alternating push ups, sit ups, lying dual leg lifts (4 sets of 25, 50, 20) 15 min
  • Cool Down Stretch 2 min
