October 2012 workouts

I haven't posted my workouts in a while so I thought I would today. I'd stopped using weights while I was working on my Pilates certification so the big thing for me in October was getting back to a regular strength training routine.

It had been so long, I'd forgotten how much I like strength training. On a strength training day I'll usually spend about 50 minutes at the gym. I start with the lower body- seated leg press, lying leg curls, thigh abductor/adductor, angled calf machine, seated leg curl, vertical leg press and end with the upper body- triceps press, shoulder press, chest press, front lat pull down, cable row machine. The jiggly bits definitely felt a bit tighter that month and I attribute it to the strength training :).

So far this month I've been uninspired and short on time which is a combo that leads to me using the treadmill a lot, but I plan to work these two DVDs into my regimen to spice it up a bit. It's been a while since I did anything other than a Pilates DVD so I'll let you know next month if I was able to stick with these.

Now what about you guys. Don't give me that look. I know all manner of temptations are abound this time of year, but I also know that you guys are still trying to stay active. Yes walking inside instead of using the drive through counts. You're moving so it counts :) Let me know how you're doing.

Thanks for reading! Be well ^-^

  1. I have totally ceased my workouts for I while, I need to get back into them! And healthy eating - I'm sorry but Ben & Jerry's just tastes so good!

    Haha, lovely post though. It's certainly inspiring. Time to get my Jillian Michael's DVD's out.
