Recovery

I have been doing weight training and cycling workout on back-to-back days and have found that I must take a day off afterwards. It's possible that if I was younger I wouldn't need one right away. However, I wasn't cycling when I was younger so who knows? I have to listen to my body today and it's telling me that I have to take a day off after two days of training like that. I can cycle multiple days in a row and could probably get away with doing weight training two or three days in a row but different workouts? I need that day off.

Along the same lines, if I am going to do a bike ride longer than 40 miles, I can't do weights the day before. Well, maybe I could but I can't do squats (and who wants to do a workout without squats?).

Make sure you listen to your body, folks.

Here is today's workout:

  • Squats: 3x6x80
  • Superset:
    • Bench Press: 3x8x65
    • Pulldowns: 3x8x60
  • Superset:
    • EZ Curls: 3x10x35
    • Pushdowns: 3x10x35
