Easy upper body workout

it's been an extremely busy week and I'm still recovering from the sprint workout earlier in the week. But need to get some mild workout it that doesn't involve alot of legs.

Bench Press
135 x 5 warm up

155 x 4 reps x 10 sets

Bent Over Rows (barbell)
135 x 8 reps x 3 sets

Hanging leg raises
2 sets x 6 reps

That felt great. little more challenging than I had expected.

so Franz, what is your weekly program design setup? I'm trying to find it but it's eluding me.

Right now I do whatever I want to. The only constant in my program right now is my sprinting - which is my primary goal. Every now and then I just throw in a totally random workout, never to be repeated again. Effective? Not sure. But my lumbar spine sure feels tons better not overloading it. So to answer your question - my set up is ever changing. Ideal? Nope- but it's workiing itself out!

Good to see you back on track with the sprinting. Stay focused and I am sure that you will do awesome at the sprinting.

Thanks Ken.

But with respect to Rif previous post, I do need more structre in my gym workouts.

I think I want to focus on getting my snatch technique and KB pressing up to speed. My technique on both need a serious overhaul.
