Good Afternoon everyone! I hope you are all having an awesome day thus far!
Sunday night into Monday I had an awful night sleep 😦 I was tossing and turning all night and felt like I was awake for the majority of the night cap. Last night, I hit the sheets nice and early and today I feel awesome. It’s amazing what a great nights sleep can do to your body and mind. I’m a firm believer in sleep. Who’s with me!?
So today was my second day on Jim Stoppani’s “1-2-3 Lean” program. Shoulders and Legs were on tap and I was extremely interested because I have never performed such a split LOL. Things definitely went well. I was breathing like a horse from doing deadlifts and squats in the same workout, but I loved it. I truthfully felt like I could perform more weight since my legs were so warm. Not to mention my shoulders received a great pump from the overhead press followed by overhead lunges!
3-4 sets 9-11 reps
Barbell Shoulder Press: 95LB(11)x3 100(11)
Alternating DB Press: 25LB(11)x3
One Arm Upright Row: 30(11)x3
Squats: 225(11)x3 230(11)
Deadlifts: 205(11)x2 220(11)
Overhead Barbell Lunges:95LB x3
Handstand Pushups 5×5
Double Under practice
Great lift! Give this Routine a try for a MAJOR change of pace!
I will note one thing though, I am going to tweak this program JUST SLIGHTLY! I am going to move shoulders onto my chest day to give legs a day devoted to them. I feel that my legs need extra work so giving them a full day should really help.

I entitled this blog post Tough Mudder Tuesday because yesterday I started my running campaign outside! I logged 3 miles yesterday. My first Tough Mudder is 67 days away so every day I will be logging miles to prepare for this beastly race! Can’t Stop Won’t Stop! Any questions, shout me out 🙂
