For today's workout, I did the following machines:
warmup: 10 minute walk on treadmill, with last minute jog (jogging is kind of a big freakin' deal for me...yes, even 1 minute!)
Incline press 2x10 @ 40 lbs.
Pec Fly 2x10 @ 40 lbs.
Tricep Extension 2x10 @ 40 lbs.
Preacher Curl 2x10 @ 40 lbs.
Leg Extensions 2x10 @ 80 lbs.
Prone Leg Curl 2x10 @ 60 lbs.
Abdominal Crunch Machine 2x10 @ 60 lbs.
Lower Back Machine 1x10 @ 60 lbs., 1x10 @ 70 lbs.
11 minutes on treadmill, 3.0/6.0 @ 1 min. intervals
I realize everything I listed above may seem really lame to most people here, but I really have no clue what I'm doing when it comes to strength training, so I just decided to start somewhere
. It's weird, but I've almost been craving it lately. When I've been on the treadmill or eliptical, especially, I see people across the room doing weights, and it's like my arms are whispering to me, "we want some of that!" Hahaha! But, I'm not really sure where to begin. Anyhow, those are the 8 machines in the workout room I was in, so that's where I started, and now I can go from there.
As Amanda, my coach, and I talked about today, just incorporating some type of exercise into my life almost everyday is a major feat for me, especially 2 weeks into it! So, I'm proud of myself for doing something most days, and I'll continue learning and hopefully becoming more effective as I learn. I'm also going to stay off the scale for the next 2 weeks and just weigh myself on the 31st, since the scale is frustrating me.
That's it for today! Tune in tomorrow!
