I hope you had a nice Monday. Mine wasn’t too bad. Well, I tried a tofu recipe that was downright awful, but I guess it happens. That’s what I get for not checking the reviews before whipping it up, right?
Kevin, being the sweetheart that he is, ate it without complaining; though frankly, he didn’t have to complain. He just gave a look of relief once I admitted defeat because knowing that he wouldn’t ever have to eat it again. Fair ‘nough.
Since the food wasn’t so awesome, let’s move onto fitness. I had a lovely run on Sunday. I don’t normally work out on Sundays, but I just genuinely wanted to run.
Yesterday’s workout was pretty good too. I love the results I’m seeing with my current routine, and I think I’ll stick with it a while longer. In case you missed it, here are both vague and detailed sections of my current plan.
- Monday’s WOD or Plate Workout
- Tuesday’s Abs (with a run)
- Wednesday’s Legs (very little cardio)
- Thursday is just a run followed by yoga or pilates
- Friday’s “Sweater Arms” and cardio of choice
- Saturday or Sunday is a long walk or run
On the arm day, I throw in some bench dips. You’re all probably familiar with
hardcore regular triceps dips and the modified version, bench dips. I prefer to kick up the modified version just a bit by incorporating a stability ball.
I also throw a plate on my legs while I do these in the gym for a little extra umph. Tried this one yet? I’m a fan. Even though it’s not my all-time favorite move for triceps, I’m happy to rotate it into the mix.
When developing full-body plans, I like to do 2 exercises per muscle group (on average), and with area-specific plans, I go for approximately 3 exercises per muscle group (more if including compound movements). In summary, I need a minimum of 4 for most muscle groups, but that’s just my not-a-certified-personal-trainer opinion.
