Oh my! It is January 1, 2014 and that is just nuts! Did you have a great time ringing in the New Year?? I hope you did! Normally, Nathan and I can never seem to nail down plans for New Years. I don’t know why, but usually we just stay home and I fall asleep around ten. But fortunately, plans were a go last night and we were able to spend time eating good food and hanging out with dear friends. It was a great way to celebrate. So much to be thankful for and so much to look forward to.
Now, for all of you who made that resolution to get back to the gym or jump on the healthy train, I have a Work It Wednesday to get you started! This is one of my faves and has really helped in shaping up my arms. Also, if you incorporate this into your weekly workout routine you will begin to notice yourself getting stronger as you are able to maybe do more pull-ups or use more weight in the shoulder press, and that should make you smile.
Hopefully this has hooked you, and now your excited! Here it is:
Work It Wednesday
20 deadlifts with weight
a.) pull-ups– max rep (assisted if needed)
b.) 10 shoulder presses with dumbells
c.) tricep dips– max rep
Reapeat exercises a,b,c 5 times resting one minute in between each round
15 deadlifts with lighter weight then what you started with
Remember to keep good form, and push yourself. Try not to take a lot of breaks if you can help it. Adjust the weight if needed. Don’t get discouraged if you can’t get as many pull-ups in the third round as you did in the first. Your body will get tired! But you’ll do great!! Let me know how it goes :)
