Deadlifts vs Cardio & Abs

I hit the gym early this morning (right after the morning dog walk), and I launched into a pretty good workout, with no competition for the sole squat rack in the gym.

In fact, most of the other people in there were doing "cardio and abs". That's a classic bodybuilder throw-back workout day, when people don't really want to work hard, but are still required to go to the gym by their obsessive compulsive habits.

I think I'll take deadlifts and dumbbell presses over "cardio and abs" any day.

My workout went down like this...

1) Clean & Press (3x5)

2A) Deadlift (5x5)
2B) DB Chest Press (2x8-12)

3A) Good Morning (2x10)
3B) Chin-ups (2xAs many as possible)

Followed that up with another dog walk. And 4 hours later it's time for another dog walk!

Have a great weekend,

Solid Craig. I love that, I can go into the gym near my work and occupy the powerrack for 30-45mins and not be disturbed. Doubt I could get away with that on the treadmills. They have a sign-up schedule LOL.
