I was able to get to the gym this morning before work so I got some strength training in, not too much because I got there late. I did 3 sets 10 reps each on: Lat pull down; outer thigh; incline press; low back extension; abdominal crunch and the seated row.

Awesome!

Yesterday I did some upper arm strength training (triceps and biceps). All I could manage with this cold, ugh.

Looks like strength is a lot harder for all of us to get in.

I did day 3 of the SparkPeople bootcamp workout, an upper body strength workout.

Today I just couldn't get very motivated. In the morning at work I did 2 sets each of push-ups and crunches of 20 and then tonight at home I did 2 sets each of the same 20 reps each

Well we did the "Challenge" I got 1 pull up, 32 sit-ups and 20 full push-ups. In the morning at work I did a set of crunches @ 30 and a set of modified push-ups @30, and tonight trying to stay awake studying I did 2 sets of 20 on modified push-ups and crunches. I feel pretty good....maybe I should do this more often LOL emoticon

Today some co-workers and I are going to the gym to do their "Triple Threat Challenge", we have to do push-ups, sit-ups and pull-ups for 2 min each. Since none of us can do a pull-up it should be very entertaining!!!

This is a good challenge for me - I love getting outside to walk or run, but I'm not so big on the strength training.

Yesterday I did 2 sets of calf raises on step.

Tuesday I did 2 sets each of seated dumbbell concentration curls, dumbbell lateral raises, and seated dumbbell triceps extensions.

Today I'm going to try to get in a few core exercises, crunches and the like.
