WoW You Guys . . .

9 Feb

Wow …. it has been almost a week since I blogged last!

School is really picking up and between the group projects, homework, me attempting to understand Physics, quizzes, tests, and papers I have definitely been busy AND slacking on this blogging stuff!

However, I did want to make sure to write really quickly today because I did DAY ONE of my Jamie Eason’s 12-week LiveFit plan! I got a big slap-in-the-face of reality when attempting to do the tricep exercises. I really have almost NO arm strength, it’s pretty pathetic.

Day One – Chest & Triceps

The plan in Phase 1 (week 1 – week 4) is to lift 65% of your max and do 3 sets of 12 reps of each exercise. Each total workout, like the one from today, does roughly three exercises per muscle group. So, today was 3 chest targeting exercises plus 3 tricep targeting exercises. I got through almost everything, but it was ROUGH (couldn’t get all the way to 12 reps on the pushups and dips).

I did an hour of Zumba afterwards as well.

Between the strength training and Zumba, my back, shoulders, tri’s and chest are SHOT! I am so sore today, but hopefully that just means I worked hard!

I’m going to eventually think of a better way to keep track of this stuff so I can visually chart and see my progress, but just for yesterday I kept everything in notepad on my iPhone:

10 lbs. on dumbbell chest exercises: chest fly and bench press

10 lbs. on dumbbell chest exercises: chest fly and bench press

Off to the Gym to work on DAY 2 – Biceps & Back (awwwwlawdy, this is gonna hurt!).

    Lol, I have barely any arm strength either, but I am getting there! I should try out this workout 🙂

      I love it so far! If you need something really easy to follow, no thinking involved, and only takes up 4 of 7 days in your week – this one is great!! I definitely recommend it!

    I want to start Live Fit but keep putting it off! I need to just write it in my planner and act as if it’s an appointment and stick with it 🙂 I love how it’s free and pretty simple to follow.

      I agree! That’s the only reason I decided on this one since it was only 4x/week and so easy to follow! You should totally do it! 🙂
