ZeroMan Workout 1

ZeroMan Workout Series
The ZeroMan workout series is designed for gentlemen relatively new to working out who want to lose weight and have general fitness improvement.  Enjoy.

Day 1: Wednesday October 5th 2011

Warm Up: 20 minutes
Recumbent Resistance Intervals
-       5 minutes at ‘5’ to ‘7’ resistance 75 RPM to 80 RPM
-       8 times: 30 seconds at ‘10’ to ‘12’ resistance 90+ RPM, followed by 1 minute at ‘5’ to ‘7’ resistance 75 RPM to 80 RPM
-       3 minutes at a leisurely pace

Light Stretch: less than 5 minutes
            No deep stretching.  Just a few reaching exercises, arm swings and circles, trunk rotations, etc.  The idea is to move and get warm, especially muscle groups you missed in your warm-up.

Resistance: 10 – 20 minutes
-       Cable Lat Pulls: 12 reps at 55 lbs., 10 reps at 60 – 65 lbs., 8 reps at 65 – 75 lbs.
-       Seated Cable Rows: 10 reps at 50 lbs., 8 reps at 55 lbs., max reps at 60 lbs.
-       Single leg Step ups on low step (8” – 12”): 3 times- 10 step ups on each leg with striding arms, balance for 10 seconds on the 10th step.

Stretch: 5 - 10 minutes

Cool Down: 20 minutes
Walk, jog, or bike at a leisurely pace.  Treadmill, elliptical, recumbent, and the great outdoors are all good options.

Let me know how it goes!  Comment below or shoot me an email!  Eat well, drink lots of water and have fun!  Love you.
