I'm looking for comments on this routine and if anyone knows of a better one. Its pretty much every leg/lower body machine you can find in the gym with 3 sets of 10-12 reps. I tries it tonight and I don't feel like I did much. I took it pretty easy on the weights though since it was my first time and most of this equipment I have never used. I just got a gym membership. I don't want to shell out a couple hundred for a few personal training sessions so I'm trying to go at it alone.
Is it bad to jog as well? I've been doing that every time I go in, usually 30 minutes sometimes 45. incline on 2, speed 5.5 for 10 min then 6.5 for 10, then 7.5 for 5, then cool down.
Thanks for any advice.
I'm just trying to build strength and endurance. I'm doing the MS150 here in CO which is 150 miles over 2 days. I also want to do another century in the elephant rock. I've been cycling for about 2 years and have no problem doing a metric. I just want to be able to do them a little faster. I'm thinking about racing spring of 2010.
