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:

Lower Body-

Dumbell Squats
Wide Leg Wall Sit with Calf Raises

Upper Body-

One Arm Dumbell Rows
Seated Triceps Extensions
Wall Pushups


Modified Plank
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

    All I have to say is a BIG freakin' UH-HUH. Going to steal your motivation, if you don't mind, cuz strength training is too elusive for me to even contemplate!!!!! I figure, they schedule it for a reason, but then I get to check off things and think that if I've checked off a few things, I'm kicking big buttinski, but yep, so not the case...glad I could spy on your blog and actually steal things! I'm a healthy criminal!!!
