Today's Workout


Ok... I'm back (and yes, I feel much better now that I've eaten - yay, oatmeal!)... let's talk about my workout  :-)


Today my day began with weights... Chest/Triceps & some Abs (fyi, in 2 weeks, my number of sets increase). Each exercise is linked, so you can click on it to view.

Incline Dumbbell Press (17.5 lbs, but it was too light) - 2 sets of 10
Flat Dumbbell Press (20 lbs, gonna have to increase that, too) - 2 sets of 12
Pec Deck (I did Cable Crossovers instead - 25 lbs) - 2 sets of 12
Tricep Pushdowns (40 lbs) - 2 sets of 12 (with a 3-count hold at the bottom as you squeeze the tricep like you're trying to push the bar through your thighs)
Lying Tricep Extensions (skull crushers) with 30 lb EZ bar - 2 sets of 12
Abs - 3 sets of 25 reverse crunches on a bench

Time to complete (including 5 min warm-up on elliptical): 35 minutes
Calorie Burn: 207
Heart-rate info: 128-156

After work tonight, I'm back at the gym to catch a 15 minute abs class (AT THE PLATINUM CLUB!!! I did that in all caps to remind myself to go to the correct gym for the correct class, unlike last time when I ended up in the class from hell because I mixed up which gym I was supposed to go to. LOL!) followed by 30 minutes of cardio: 20 minutes high intensity, 10 minutes steady state.

After that, I clean up and take my trusty cooler to the bowling alley where I'll cheer on my guys and eat my dinner.
