My first time posting a workout since restarting this thing. Apparently you can post from your phone now (it’s a brave new world)
This was definitely one of those ‘get in the gym and do SOMETHING’ so it’s not the toughest or most interesting. I prefer circuit training, especially if I’m wanting to keep my time in the gym reasonable. Despite the fact that this is an arm focused workout I did include some light leg exercises…cause legs. 😉
Circuit 1 (10 reps x4 sets)
- Dumbbell Hammer curls
- Cable tricep ext
- Goblet squat (w/ resistance band around knees)
Circuit 2 (10 reps x 4 sets)
- Single arm, db tricep ext
- Cable bicep curls (ez curl bar)
- Reverse lunge (bw)
Total of 24 sets + 6 mile run
Enjoy reading and please comment
After my previous post (last night) I remained awake staring at the ceiling till at least 11. I still managed to make myself crawl out of bed at 4:30, but it was quite the challenge and I ended up being late to the gym. Thus, unfortunately I only had time to do my run. I’m hoping that my sleep schedule will even out soon, especially with the time change coming up.
On a different note, though somewhat related, I am also working on decreasing my alcohol consumption. From what I’ve read alcohol decreases quality of sleep.
So I’ve added in exercise, going to bed earlier, and meditation. Next step is to start eliminating distractions and detractors like alcohol and junk food.
Run : 3 miles
Mile 1: warm up at 6mph
Mile 2: sw at 7mph
Miles 2-2.5: 6.6 mph
Mile 2.5-3: 6.8 mph
Now off to class & hopefully coffee.
