Body for Life – Lower Body workout

Posted in Body For Life, Exercise on 11/24/2013 by ganns

I’ve been working out consistently the past two weeks, but I haven’t been blogging it.

Why?

I’m not sure. LOLz Maybe it’s because I’m just so pressed for time, I don’t think sitting down at the laptop to update myself – do I even still have regular readers? – is good use of the time.

But I spank myself. It’s accountability, and journaling. And that’s healthy. So here I am.

My schedule has been consistent. MWF – Cardio, TThS – Weight training. The cardio involves boxing and running. I love boxing. It’s both cardio and weights, and I can feel the results on my chest already. Can’t wait to get deeper into this!

Anyway, my report for today:

Quads – Dumbbell Squats

1st set – 12 reps on 10lbs in each hand

2nd set – 10 reps on 12.5lbs in each hand

3rd set -8 reps on 15lbs in each hand

4th set – 6 reps on 20lbs in each hand

5th set – 12 reps on 15lbs in each hand

Hamstrings – Straight-Leg Deadlifts

1st set – 12 reps on 15lbs in each hand

2nd set – 10 reps on 17.5lbs in each hand

3rd set -8 reps on 20lbs in each hand

4th set – 6 reps on 20lbs in each hand

5th set – 12 reps on 10lbs in each hand

Calves – Calf Raises

1st set – 12 reps on 15lbs in each hand

2nd set –  10 reps on 17.5lbs in each hand

3rd set – 12 reps on 20lbs in each hand

4th set – 12 reps on 20lbs in each hand

5th set – 12 reps on 20lbs in each hand

Abdominals – Two circuits of 12-rep crunches, side crunches, and (100 count) bicycle crunches
