Yes…it is possible to spend $85 at CVS buying absolutely nothing. I am living proof of that. I got a little blanket..some lotions..hair products and nail polish. I guess it’s possible.
Anyways I am going to give a more structured view of my workouts from now on!
I will typically write the exercise, then i will write the weight by how many reps i did so it will look like this…
Dumb Bell Squats: 50×15, 60×15, 60×15, 60×15
That shows I did four sets.
Today was supposed to be a back and tricep workout..but my back is still somewhat sore from my last back workout, so i decided to swap workouts and do a quad/calf workout.
DB Squats: 50×15, 60×15, 60×15, 60×15
DB Walking Lunges: 10×15(per leg), 15×15, 15×15
Squat Press Machine: 200×15, 220×15, 250×10
Leg Extensions(w/ a hold at the top of each rep): 50×10, 50×10
Seated Calf Raise: 25×20, 35×18, 35×15
Calf Raise Machine: 110×15, 110×18
NOTE: I rarely do calf exercises, so I wasn’t sure exactly what the right weight was for me to do that is why you can see that I should be doing more weight considering I got 15 reps on the first set and 18 reps on the second set on the calf raise machine.
Depending on your goals, I recommend 12-15 reps for most people, however if you are trying to build muscle, I recommend 8-12 reps of an exercise. For me, I have pretty muscular legs as it is, so I usually go for the 12-15 reps, while in my upper body workouts, I am for 8-12 reps.
Cardio today was 40 minutes on the elliptical(my legs were worn out so I didn’t even want to try for an incline walk today.)
Let me know if you have any questions…comments are always welcome too!
For breakfast today I had 4 egg whites with some bell peppers and a little bit of reduced fat mozzarella cheese. I also had a bowl of oatmeal and 2 apples. (All pre-workout)
After my workout it was lunch time and I had about 3.5 oz chicken breast, 3/4 cup of brown rice, and about a cup of mixed vegetables. I followed it up with an apple and a protein drink.
Off to work now, and plan on having a few almonds mid-afternoon, and a dinner that resembles my lunch! Protein shake before bed!
I feel great!!! 🙂
