I’m trying out a new workout routine to try and get over my latest plateau so I thought I’d share it!
Now I know a lot of women are intimidated by free weights, but don’t be! Watch the videos, check out the instructions and walk into the gym with a plan! Remember, start with light weights, no shame in gauging your abilities. No one is out here to hurt themselves. If you have questions don’t be afraid to tap a guy working out nearby or gym employee a question — you might get a date out of it! 😉
This workout is challenging, but focused on form, which I love! A lot of these moves I have done before, but a co-worker recently got me to up the ante by adding the dreaded Stairmaster and more weight training.
Don’t be afraid to go slow! It is more important to get the form right — pay attention for where you are feeling the burn.
This is what I’ll be doing during my lunch hour:
*5×5 = 5 sets of 5
Straight Bar or Incline Curl 3×8 http://www.bodybuilding.com/exercises/detail/view/name/barbell-curl
Kneeling Cable Crunch 3×10-20 http://www.bodybuilding.com/exercises/detail/view/name/cable-crunch
