I begin this post with two simple words.
Look out baby girls; he’s a heart breaker! Ha. While this little charmer took an afternoon nap (yes, as usual, only 30 minutes), I squeezed in a workout. My workouts have changed quite a bit since he’s come into my life. I suppose that’s to be expected when priorities are shifted.
Sometimes I can make it to the gym for a 40ish-minute workout, but other times I’m at the house or walking/jogging him in the stroller. Due to contractors working on the house in the morning, the gym didn’t happen.
I keep my routines flexible, like the one I’m sharing today. This was created for the gym, which would allow for heavy lifting. However, I often adapt it to fit my at-home requirements (dumbbells and resistance bands) by increasing reps and doing other things (ie: some core work) between sets. If at the gym, lift heavy and try to throw in some pyramid sets, drop sets, or occasional burnouts.
Right now I’m working chest, triceps, and shoulders on Mondays. Tuesdays and Thursdays are run days. Wednesday is for back, biceps and a little cross-training cardio, and Friday is leg day. I hope to also get in a run or walk on Saturdays, though I totally understand if I miss a day during the week.
I’ll be sharing Wednesday and Friday’s routine later in the week.
- Where have you been working out lately?
