No-plans Workout

Here’s what happens when I randomly show up at the gym with absolutely no plan for what I will do.  Yesterday’s workout:

  • back squats, 45 lbs (x10)
  • back squats, 65 lbs (x10)
  • back squats, 75 lbs (x10)
  • overhead squats, 45 lbs (x10)
  • dumbbell chest presses, two 15-lb dumbbells (x10, slowww)
  • dumbbell chest presses, two 15-lb dumbells, this time with one arm at a time, alternating arms (x8 each arm)
  • pullup with 25 lbs of assistance (x1)
  • pullup with 14 lbs of assistance (x1)
  • pullups with 60 lbs of assitance (x10)
  • 45s jump rope
  • russian twists with 10-lb kettlebell (x50) – position yourself in a pilates V, and take the kettle bell side to side, keeping your feet from touching the mat.
  • glute bridges   (x40)
  • 45 s jump rope
  • IYTW‘s on stability ball (5 secs in each position, cycle through 4 times)
  • russian twists with 10-lb kettlebell (x50)
  • 45 s jump rope
  • glute bridges (x40)
  • bicep curls, two 10-lb dumbbells (x10)  — too easy, I was getting lazy
  • laying tricep presses with two 10-lb dumbbells (x10)
  • 10 minutes on a bike, at resistance level 8

While this wasn’t exactly easy, I would usually prefer to have something a little more challenging/intense.  I only had 30 minutes, and no time to plan, though, so this worked out just fine!  What do you usually end up doing at the gym, if you go without a plan?
