Last week was easy so I decided to kick it up a level. Also I’m doing this blog at the end of the week instead of the beginning.
I’m excited to be documenting this fitness #restart . Last week I felt the ache in arms mainly my biceps. So this week I switched it up and added diamond push ups in the arm & chest sets. Even tho this week’s target area is legs & glutes.
I had a hard time figuring out how to work the target muscles. So I ended up doing squats and lunges. Not sure if this is really going to lead to any gains but it was worth a shot.
I notice I have gained about a half inch in my chest, I can see more definition and I’m pretty sure I strain less when lifting heavy objects (could just be in my mind).
Haven’t had a chance to step on a scale yet but my target goal is 160lbs and I’m probably about 15lbs short of my goal.
So why am I here blabbing on… Later gym rats!
Hey my fitness junkies & gym rats. Welcome.
My mission with this new work out routine is achieve my body goals in 6months no later than the summer of 2018.
Accompanying my *home routine workout is a not so strick healty diet but more importantly self-care. I’m not sure about any of you but nothing, especially nothing new is going to get accomplished in life if I’m not practicing self-care.
So for my first week I am eliminating red meat from my diet and focusing on my target area (Arms & Chest). Since I despise cardio I have instead decided to substitute by taking the stairs whenever possible. Office is on the 3 floor so it seems like an even enough trade off.
So my plan is for the first 3 weeks build my routine from the ground up and find what works for me and what doesn’t. Supposedly to be something like this:
Week 1: Arms & Chest
Week 2: Legs & Glutes
Week 3: Abs & Back
For week one my goal is to do 33 push ups a day, changing the type of push up daily hopefully to hit different muscle groups in that area i.e. close , open , triangle , wide , elevated etc. I choose 33 mainly because 15 is a comfort amount before the muscle group realizes it’s being worked. I can do about 23 in a row before the struggle. Also have to remember that I wanted to set a number realistically possible to reach EVERY day for 7 days IN A ROW. After crunching some numbers and deciding 33 was the easiest to remember and the most attractive number of my options. 20-40.
Honestly readers, I’m not sure how this is going to go; considering my track record 🤔. BUT things have been failing into place to maybe a physical fit body and a healthy diet will follow suit. Haven’t decided if I want to do weekly vlog wrap up the fails could make for good footage 😂
Wish me luck !!!
