Just got back yesteday afternoon from Miami. Our objective of relaxing, disconnecting and taking advantage of the beautiful carribean ocean was axed; the weather was cold. Regardless we made the best of the trip and saw many of Yoana's Venezuelan friends as well as her immediate family. We also checked out a training facility and met its' owner, Julio Anta, a very a very accomplished martial artist and one heck of a nice guy. And the Venezuelan food we ate; OUTSTANDING and DELICIOUS! As soon as we got off the plane we knew we had to get a workout in, so that's what we did.
A-1 Double KB Front Squats
24kg's 5 x 5 reps
A-2 Weighted Chin Ups
16kg 5 x 5 reps
B-1 Reverse Lunges with hip Flexion
2 x 16kg 3 x 8/8
This was a butt kicker. The lack of deadlifting in my regime has definitely made my back better but consequently has shrunk my hamstrings to the size of Pee Wee's hermans lower legs. I am going to try and pack on a little size on my hip extensors these next couple of months my focusing my workouts a little more on the legs. Of course I have to keep the weight in check and be smart. As of lately my workouts have been for upper body dominant. Where my my legs were once my strength, my upper body is now my strength. Balance, I need to balance out my strength levels by bringing up my legs a bit.
