ZeroMan Workout 6

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 6: Monday October 10th 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 45 lbs., 10 reps at 50 lbs., max reps at 60 lbs.
-       Seated Reverse Flys: 2 times- 10 reps at 15 lbs.
-       Single leg Step ups on low step (8” – 12”): 2 times- 10 step ups on each leg with striding arms, balance for 10 seconds on the 10th step.
-       Push-ups (standard, modified, or bench modified): 12 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps

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.  Spend some quality time with your dog.
