I’m currently completing twelve weeks of weight lifting on the Stronglifts program – I’m currently in Week Three.
In a nutshell, the program alternates two workouts with at least 1-2 rest days in between.
Workout 1: squat, bench, row. Workout 2: squat, overhead press, deadlift.
The aim for each workout is to increase the weight lifted from the previous workout by 2.5kg and, without failure, complete five sets of five reps.
I had initially planned to lift today, but I did some sprints on the cycling trainer last night and am tired from that today; and also tired from today’s 5.2km run.
I’ll be lifting tomorrow morning.
