    Default Back to weights!!!

    Back lifting and although some nights I don't want to do it, I have been following through. Upper and Lower body on alternate days. A solid 45 mins each time. It is definitely helping my knee and back pain!

    Been working out regularly this past month but am going to start recording here

    2-17
    Today was weighted leg lifts, front and side 1 x 20, each
    clam shells with a resistance band 1 x 20
    Bridging on a ball 1 x 10
    Bridging on ball and rolling the ball in with heels, 1 x 10
    Squats with 10 lb weight 1 x 20
    Lunges on BOSU (cant do them without it) 20 each side
    Calf raises on stairs 1 x 20
    balance kicks with resistance
    walking with resistance forward backward and sideways
    seated leg press 80 lbs, 1 x 20
    Side stepping with band 3:00
    Heel taps on step 1 x 20 each side

    warm up 2.8 miles on the bike

    Wow Nice. I really want to do more lifting. I try to get in two a week. I know it is good exercise. I am getting inspired by this

    #25 dumbbell chest press 1 x 20
    #25 dumbbell bent over row 1 x 20 (each side)

    10 pushups (on an angle--cant do flat yet)
    #25 dumbbel pullovers 1 x 20

    #10 arnold press 1 x 10
    #10 straight shoulder press 1x10
    #8 front and lat raises 1 x 5 all shoulders stuff straight thru no rest

    #15 hammer curls 1 x 15

    #8 dumbbells french press (triceps) 1 x 20
    #8 tricep kickbacks 1 x 20 (LOL i need the triceps more than the biceps)

    Quick but hard -- 20 mins and done. The regular one is a 45 min workout

    Was lazy on Thursday but did my upper body workout on Friday. I did back off on the weight slightly since I had ten days away, but overall I good workout. Will push for the same again this evening at my weights from before vacation
