My First Work Out Routine

1 May

So, I’ve been going to the Y for about 8 weeks now. And every week, i do the same routine. I have a “wellness coach” named Jeff who put this together for me. So far, it seems to be working. It seems like a silly thing to document, but, i’m hoping that one day this little work out plan will be so far behind me that it will seem amusing to know that THIS is how it all started. So, here we go… my first workout routine:

HIIT training: Wednesday, 20 min, alternating 3/5 speed
Cardio of Choice: Friday
“Body Pump” class: Saturday
Weight Lifting: Monday and Thursday
10 reps, 3 sets:

Squats- 15 lbs
Lunges- 15 lbs
Dead Lifts- 15 lbs
Calf Raises- 10 lbs
Back Rows- 10 lbs
Reverse Flys- 5 lbs
Bench Press- 15 lbs (30 total)
Flys- 10 lbs
Bicep Curls- 10 lbs
Tricep Kickbacks- 10 lbs
Planks- 3 (3o sec)

So there it is folks. I’m about 8 weeks in, and i’ve upped the weight on Calf Raises to 15, Back Rows to 12, Reverse flys and flys to 8, bicep curls to 15. The first day I finished body pump, i thought Jeff was out to kill me. It’s still not easy. I fought and kicked, and managed to get yoga in on Tuesday nights. I’m not sure he sees the value in that, but as long as I do a quick 200 calorie cardio beforehand, i don’t feel too guilty 🙂

Let’s hope one day i’ll look back on this and laugh at where it all started. 🙂

      Awesome. Please let me know how it works out for you! I found this workout to be just what I needed when I first started. It was simple, easy to remember, and I travel a lot, so I liked that it didn’t require a lot of fancy equipment. Just a set of free weights, which I could find in a hotel gym. I hope you like it.
