New Strength Training Plan
Thursday, April 26, 2007
So I've been having the feeling I'm not doing enough strength training, and guess what? I was right. I had been doing only like 4 excercises. SparkPeople recommends:
Start with 2-3 exercises each for lower body and upper body and 1-2 core exercises (abs, lower back).
So this is my new plan:
Wide Leg Wall Sit with Calf Raises
One Arm Dumbell Rows
Seated Triceps Extensions
Crunches with a Twist
And I'm also going to actually DO my stretches on Strength Training days, too. I'm really good about stretching out the muscles I work when doing cardio, but I never do it on Strength Training Days. So now that I'm consistently getting the ST DONE, I'm making a better plan for what to DO.
I'm VERY excited. Which makes me feel a little crazy because who would have really thought I'd be this excited about Strength Training? :D hahaha
