Starting strength training for real
Monday, October 01, 2012
Inofficial start was last week. I had two 1/2 hour sessions that were more of a reminder how to do it.
Today was a big exercise day for me. I ran about 2 1/2 miles, went for an hour-long walk and did a 1 hour upper body and core workout.
bench press 15 lb dumbbells 3 sets of 10
chest fly 8 lb dumbbells 3 sets of 10
front raises 5 lb dumbbells 2 sets of 10
lateral raises 4 lb dumbbells 2 sets of 10
dumbbell biceps curls 5 lb 2 sets of 10
bent over row 10 lb dumbbells
close-arm wall push-up 2 sets of 10
bench dips (triceps) 2 sets of 15
planks 3 x 30 seconds
crunches on exercise ball 2 sets of 20
back extension on exercise ball alternating sides 2 sets of 20
elbow to knee crunches 2 sets of 20
This may not seem very much for many people but I think I'll be sore tomorrow.
