Weighs program

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Nice weekend. I rested quite a bit. Tried to get to the gym, but it was closed. I just can't remember it's spring break until it's too late. Luckily we're back tomorrow. And I have personal trainer.

A few people have told me that they feel they ought to lift weights, but just can't get started, and I recommend that they use a personal trainer to show you around, find the proper adjustment settings on the weight machines (if you use them) and the proper weights. You can split your full body workout into upper body, lower body, and core.

Here's an example of my program I'm starting:

Sunday-rest or 30 min light cardio
Mon-60 min mod-hi cardio, upper body strength training
Tues-30 min mod cardio, lower body
Wed-60 min mod cardio, core-abs & back
Thurs-30 min mod-hi cardio, upper body
Fri-60 min mod cardio, lower body
Sat-mod cardio, core-abs, back

    I do it but don't like it. I tend to opt for moving 40-50 pound bags of things I work with here over lifting actual weights is I have a choice. But then you don't get all the muscles worked like you do with a universal gym. I have huge muscles anyway and just try to maintain tone. I don't any more muscle mass.
