It was a nice surprise that my son (7 next month) woke up as I was getting ready to head into the gym and decided he wanted a full workout with me. I guess it’s a motivated Monday for both of us – great feeling and a great way to start the day…
Legs: Squats (2×12,10); Sissy squats (1×12); Leg extensions (2×15,12); Stiff-legged deadlifts (2×15,10); Leg curls (2×15,10)
Calves: Donkey calf raises (2×40,30); One-legged calf raises (2×15,12)
Chest: Incline DB presses (2×18,10); Incline flyes (1×10); DB bench presses (2×15,10); Flat bench flyes (1x1o)
Triceps: Extensions (2×14,12); Overhead extensions (1×12); Kickbacks (1×12)
Note: My split is based on the Phase 2 routine in The X-traordinary Size Surge Workout 2.0 e-book.
Motivated Monday Summary
My son, who will turn seven next month, has woken up to “work out” with me many times in the past, and he almost always asks me to wake him up so he can head into the gym with me. Almost always a false request, though, as he sleeps right through my wake-up attempts. Today, my alarm woke him up and he was amped to get down there. I love it! Sure, he was mostly hanging out, but he did do a decent amount of leg work (including squats), and some chest work with me (as well as some delts on his own and his favorite exercise, planks).
It was a great workout overall, and I’m not sure if that was because he was down there with me, or if it was just typical Monday motivation combined with the MegaTron continuing to do its job (no, my boy didn’t have any). Either way, great workout and great father-son time, which we also had plenty of over the weekend. He also did a great job of showing me just how non-flexible I am. LOL! I’m going to have him teach me the ways of full mobility.
Pump is still going strong now as I get ready to rip into the work day. It’s also time to start planning the next phase of my training, which will begin next week.
