Muscle Toning Workout: (Phase 1: Beginner)
10th August - 10th Sept 2009

Day 1, 3, and 5 (Day 2, 4, 6, and 7 REST to allow muscle healing)

5-10 min aerobic workout (warm up)
= Dumbell Press 1 x 15/20 reps
= Dumbell flys 1 x 15/20 reps
= Modified Push ups 1 x 15/20 reps
= Standing Dumbell Curls 1 x 15/20 reps
= Kneeling Tricep Kickbacks 1 x 15/20 reps
= 1 x 15/20 crunches each: standard, twist, elbow to knees, bicycle and reverse (ouch!)
= Squats 1 x 40 reps
= Lying Leg Extensions 2 x 20 ea side
= Lying Leg Presses 2 x 20 ea side
= Standing Calf raises 1 x 15/20 ea side
*Stretch to cool down*
*Drink Protein & Carbs Power Drink, to assist muscle healing.

This is proving to be a great workout for me, pushing my muscles and guiding me through my commitment stage.

I do my cardio seperately.

Sometimes I do more reps on certain exercises to push me a bit further, depending on how my muscles feel.

Not expecting responses but if you want to give me any hints or tips they'll be taken on board.

Its good just to reinstate my commitment by blogging it down!!

    It looks a lot like a workout you would do with a Personal Trainer.
Work on Mandy - You're doing great!
