Exercise! - Rate my workout?

View Full Version : Rate my workout?

Quick background: I am 23, 5'7 and 179 pounds.

My gym visits look like this and last 45 minutes to an hour. Rest days Saturday and Sunday but now that it is summer I am going to get some power walking in. Looking for some good input on how to improve so don't be afraid to bust out the red pen to make some corrections! :)

Monday: 5 minutes on the elliptical - Vigorous (can't talk, breaking a sweat)
20 Squats with 50 kgs
50 Calf raises with weights 40 - 50 kgs
15 Shoulder presses with 12 lb free weights
1 Minute of jump rope OR running up and down stairs (up two, down one, up two..)

Repeat above x2 minus elliptical

Tuesday: Same but I sub the Shoulder Presses with Lateral Press at 55 lbs

Wednesday: One hour class with weights

Thursday: One hour class doing yoga and Pilates

Friday: Same as Monday and Tuesday

Some days I sub the squats for dead lifts if I can get the form right.

I should mention that my workout is aimed towards torching as many calories and fat as possible. I am doing this workout along with the new Weight Watchers program so I am eating extra healthy and well.
