Week 3 on the website looks like this:
Monday: Chest & Triceps
Weeks 1 and 2 had you doing this workout first thing in the week and I liked that, so I switched it up. I especially like this program because the exercises change a bit every 2 weeks so I never get bored, plus I'm getting to figure out all the equipment in my gym which is a fun challenge. I especially like that doing 10 pushups in a row doesn't really even hurt anymore :).
Tuesday: Element 5 Bootcamp Class
I switched it up and went to Element 5 where my good friend Linden teaches boot camp. During week's 3 and 4 Jamie tells you to work out one body part twice, so I figured I would just do the boot camp instead of that. The class consisted of circuit type weight training and some cardio bursts at the end...per usual I left drenched in sweat.
Wednesday: Back & Biceps
Warmed up with a quick 10 minutes on the elliptical and then got to work. Another thing I love about the first phase is you are in and out of the gym in less than an hour. Jamie tells you to stick to a minute or less between sets and my gym has a HUGE clock in the middle of it so this makes it easy for me and gets me out of the gym quicker.
Thursday: Shoulders & Abs
I have to admit I rushed through this workout and didn't do one of the shoulder moves. But in my defense I just got done playing 50 minutes of indoor soccer so my body was already tired. The place where I play soccer and my gym are literally connected so I didn't have an excuse for skipping out on this workout all together.
I was going to do legs on Friday but decided to rest instead since I was planning a hike up Tiger Mountain the following day, good decision on my part since the hike ended up being a leg workout itself! I'll get to those legs next week!
So, I didn't get the legs workout done but hiking was a workout and on Sunday I worked out my toes by getting a post marathon pedicure...a month later.
Question: What weight training do you runners out there do? How do you incorporate weight training when you are training for a race?
