Wednesday’s Workout

Today’s workout was incredible! 45 minutes of strength training and flexibility.

Here’s what I did:

I started with 10 lb. dumbbells and did about 30 reps per event:

  • bicep curls
  • one-arm rows
  • sword pulls
  • tricep extensions
  • lateral dumbbell raises

Then I went to the mat and did my floor routine (again, 30 reps each):

  • lying chest press (with 10 lb. weights)
  • lying dumbbell flys (with 10 lb. weights)
  • lying abductions
  • lying adductions
  • crunches
  • side crunches (30 per side)
  • reverse crunches

Then I got back up and did a few leg exercises with 10 lb. dumbbells (again, 30 reps per exercise per leg):

  • wide leg squats
  • forward lunges

Then I did some stretching and finished back at the mat with a yoga cool down:

  • 1 minute plank
  • 1 minute downward dog
  • 30 second upward dog
  • 30 second child’s pose
  • 3 deep breaths with namaste.

    Wow, that sounds like a very efficient and energizing workout. Out of curiosity do you go to a local gym or have a dedicated workout space in your home?

    • Our office building has a gym in the basement that we can use for free. It’s one of the most under-utilized benefits they offer, but I love it! And I get to watch FoodNetwork and DIY while I exercise! At home, I just roll out a yoga mat in the living room, though I have dreams of a home gym one day!
