Strength Training & Push Ups

16 Jul

Comment: No running today, which is a good thing, my legs are still pretty tired from last night. I am dissapointed with the amount of push ups I was able to do. 18 is 2 less than last week. I did feel tired this morning though. Instead of moving on to the next week or repeating last weeks I am going to move up in the row, increasing the amount of PUs, but not as much as week 3 has. Hopefully I’ll be able to start Week 3 next week!

My strength training went well. I’ll have to check out a few different types of exercises for the same muscles. Doing the same ones every time gets a bit boring.

Push ups exhaustion: 18 (very dissapointing)

Pull Downs: 1 x 20 (#6), 1 x 15 (#6) (Increase in weight)

Tricep Pull Downs: 2 x 20 (#4) (need to go up 1/2 #)

Rows: 2 x 20 (50 lbs)

Bicep Curls: 2 x 20 (10 lbs)

Bench Press: 1 x 30 (45 lbs – bar only)

Back Bends: 2 x 15 (legs felt tight)

    You are so awesome with your strength training. Like many women, I tend to ignore this and I know how important it is. Keep up the great work!
