Body Under Maintenance, Week Eleven, Supplements, & Finally Legs!

The Three Musketeers

Alright! We are still pushing and pulling at the gym. For 10 weeks I didn’t take any supplementation, the point was and still is to take it easy and step by step on my body progression.

And so I decided to try a new protein that I never took before. In fact I haven’t been on any supplementation for over a year now. And so someone recommended IsoFusion “Premium Whey Isolate” by “Gaspari Nutrition”,  Milk Chocolate flavor. Besides this one I’m taking 5-10 g of L-Glutamine by “Marshall”, on daily basis. I will be reviewing them both later on for you.

Week 11 came complete, working out the legs with Coach Hamzeh at the gym, It was pretty much of a tough workout, but I enjoyed it.

Body Under Maintenance, Week Three! HORRIBLE!

So okay the week started, and I wasn’t very excited about it, especially when Bob insisted that we started with legs! I wanted to leave legs for the end of the week, in order not to suffer through  it, I thought having the weekend as a rest would be a better idea. Anyway Bob is very stubborn and I really can’t find a way to make thins my way LOL.

My Training, Week Three

DAY ONE “Glutes & HAMSTRINGS”

We did the following exercises:

  • Superset: Standing Leg Curl Hammer, Stiff-Leg Dead-lift  “Lever Machine”
  • Single Leg Standing Kickback “Cable”
  • Single Kneeling Kickback “Cable”
  • Swiss Ball Leg Curls
  • Single Leg Standing Kickback “Cable”, Standing On “BOSU Ball”
  • Walking Lunges “ViPR”

So I have one comment here to add, Bob noticed that my balance is not great, so he decided we do Single Leg Kickback on “BOSU Ball”. Was pain in the ass to do the exercise twice to be honest.

After “Legs Day” I couldn’t go back to training the whole week, my legs were beat and I had extra classes to cover for my colleagues. I decided not to kill myself, knowing the amount of working coming, and if i train extra I might not be able to teach my classes properly! I’m sad though! Week Three wasn’t as I expected it to be!!!!
