woohoo, feeling good!

Friday, January 11, 2013

I started a new circuit training routine last night and really enjoyed it. I'm using the workout routines in the Abs Diet for Women. I love, love, love all these new muscles I'm starting to see! And the scale went down again today. I've lost 3.6 pounds in 4 weeks, which is slow, yes, but that's actually pretty good with the hypothyroidism, building more muscle, and making it through Christmas and New Year's. I'll take that as a WIN!

The circuit consists of moving through different strength exercises relatively quickly without a rest, then repeating the circuit. I started with 5 minute warmup on the treadmill, did 10 sets of each, then repeated the full circuit:
Leg press
Bench press
Lat pull down
Shoulder press
Seated row
Leg extension
Hamstring curl

Then ended with 10 minutes brisk walking on the treadmill.

I'm going to try this routine for a few weeks and see how I feel.
Mon - cardio-elliptical or a DVD
Tue - cardio
Wed - abs and cardio
Thu - above circuit
Fri - OFF
Sat - cardio
Sun - abs and above circuit

The abs workout is 5 different exercises that target different parts of the abs plus the lower back.
