THE PLAN: ST + Zumba = OoLaLa!

Thursday, January 20, 2011

I am determined to build muscle and look great by the time summer roles around and I am supposed to be seen in a bathing suit. Soooo... I have been strength training for the past 2 weeks as well as Zumba for Wii. Here's what I'm doing. If you have any tips of other ST exercises that give great results, I'd love to hear them!


CARDIO: Zumba for Wii at least 20 min, 3-5 x week


STRENGTH TRAINING: at least 10 min, 3-5 x week (using 3 lb weights when weights are needed)

UPPER BODY:

I do this one with a heavy free weight and it works just as well as the medicine ball.


FUTURE PLANS: Start RUNNING again (when the weather warms up)!

    Looks like a great plan. For my strength training right now I do the 28 day challenge videos. Zumba sounds fun but I don't know if I can move like that, haha!

    Looks like you have a great ST plan!! I use Exercise On Demand and Coach Nicole's videos on here for my ST. I haven't used my Wii in a while and I didn't realize there was a Zumba game for it, might have to get that!
