Spring Break Time

It has certainly been a while since I’ve posted a new entry on this blog! I apologize for my absence from this blog, but I’ve really been trying to finish up this semester of school and finally have gotten back into my workout routine.

To catch you up to speed, I’ll post an example of what my weekly workouts look like.

MONDAY:

  • 30-40 minutes of *cardio on elliptical or other cardio machine

  • 50-80 crunches  

  • 2 sets of 20-30 second planks

THURSDAY:

  • 3X10 hamstring curls with 25-35lbs

  • 3X12 squats and lunges with 5lbs

  • 3X10 tricep curls with 10-15lbs

  • 3X10 chest press with 10lbs

  • 3X10 sets of at least 5 different ab exercises

  • 2 sets of 20-30 second planks

SATURDAY: 

  • 30-40 minutes of yoga

After a few months of gradually adjusting and modifying my workout, I have finally returned to the old faithful routine of 3-4 days a week of cardio and 2 days of weight training. I truly swear by this routine and can say with 100 percent confidence that this is the routine that really shapes my body. As I’ve said in previous blog entries, P90X and other routines are a nice change, but this is a tried and true body-changing routine.

I hope this helps any of you who are trying to get into warm weather shape. Just remember not to be afraid of heavier weights. They will help you burn fat and won’t turn you into a man.

*For my cardio days, I prefer to run outside if the weather permits, but either way, breaking a sweat is the key.
