My Workout Program
My workout program is pretty intense. I continue to train for gymnastics 5 days a week, I do a lot of bodyweight exercises in my training sessions. My usual regimen consists of something like 120 push-ups (or 30 handstand push-ups), 400+ sit-ups/V-sits/oblique crunches, 50 leg raises (to the bar), 25 pull-ups/chin-ups, and 30 dips on the parallel bars- it's a real killer. These sessions are also my primary time to stretch, though I will also do additional stretching in the mornings and in the evenings. I also spend 60 minutes 3 days/week lifting weights, concentrating on compound exercises to increase my power and develop more core strength. My current lifting routine is pretty minimal: 3x8x105 on bench, 3x8x185 on squat, 3x8x120 on lat pull-downs. I will usually add 5-7 more exercises (3x8-15) to the session depending on how I'm feeling. I also have 2-45 minute cardio sessions a week to help maintain my endurance and stamina.
