I started a new workout plan yesterday, and I’m pretty excited about it. I found the plan on this BodyBuilding.com ‘transformations’ page. It seemed to work for that girl, but I think I’ll need to tweak it a bit to work for me.
I plan to follow this routine every Monday for the next few weeks. I’ll see if I need to tweak routines on the other days as I come to them.
Cardio (Yesterday’s cardio was a 3-mile walk, but I’ll probably change that up from week to week.)
Circuit 1: Repeat 3x
Lateral shoulder raises: 12 reps
Arnold press: 12 reps
Pilates roll-ups for abs: 10 (with or without a light weight)
Circuit 2: Repeat 3x
Triceps pushdown: 15 reps
Cable bicep curls: 20 reps
Hanging leg raise: 20 reps
Circuit 3: Repeat 3x
Biceps 21s: 7 reps each position (barbell)***
Kettlebell swings: 20 reps
Pike ups: 15 reps
Circuit 4: Repeat 3x
Overhead triceps press with plate: 12 reps
Pushups: 12 reps or until failure
***From BodyBuilding.com: “21s: When performing 21s, 7 reps are performed in the lower half of the motion, then 7 reps are performed in the upper half, and the set is finshed with 7 complete reps. ”
I had an extra workout after my gym routine. Kevin and I finally painted the ugly pink room upstairs. The home’s previous owners painted the room such an awful shade of pink, we wouldn’t even want it that color if we had a baby girl.
I don’t have the finished pictures yet, but it’s a sandy/buttery/toffee color. I like it! I also liked this lunch. Yeah, that’s what you’re seeing in the other pics. Lunch was diced onion, tomatoes, oregano, garlic powder, and pesto chicken sausage over quinoa. Major yum!
