I noticed that my exercise tab is looking a little sparse so over the next few weeks while I do my own thing, I am going to try my best to add some more workouts to the blog! I hope that eventually you'll be able to come here and pick out weeks of workouts just by clicking on that tab.
I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I'm planning on doing James Wilson's program, and while that's true I'm just not ready to start yet. I am going to California next week for my Nana's funeral, and then I'm going to Milan for work, so lots of travelling in my future. Until I'm back and settled, I'll just be making up my own workouts or pulling things from magazines, bb.com, etc. then once I'm home and settled I'll start on James' program. The Facebook group has been great so far and it looks like people are loving the workouts and having great results. Another plus, you get to eat lots and lots of food because you burn a ton of calories during the workouts... always a good thing.
Any who, back to today's workout-- Arms and sprints!
Skull crushers 4 x 10 super set with alternating curls 4 x 10. I used 40lbs for skull crushers and 20lb dumbbells for the first 3 sets of curls then dropped to 15. Personal record!
Preacher Curls 3 x 8 super set with hammer curls 3 x 8. I used 30lbs for preachers and 15 for hammers.
Incline curls (not alternating) 3 x 15. I used 10lbs... my arms were screaming by this time.
Rope tricep push downs 3 x 10 super set with bench dips to failure. I did 30lbs for push downs and got 12, 10, and 7 dips.
Tricep kick backs 3 x 10- I used 10lbs
Then we headed up stairs for 12 minutes of sprints-- I ran them at 9.6 another personal record! It's amazing how far a little extra sleep goes, I felt like I could have ran for an hour... but B had a meeting so we stopped at 12 minutes :) Happy Saturday and remember: treat the weekend just like any other day of the week and stay on track!!
