That break was way too long…
Recently I was focusing more on cardio and pilates in order to drop excess fat which I managed to collect so deliberately during my holiday break. Who doesn’t?
Well… too many push-ups and planks caused my right wrinkle some kind of small injury and my legs are sore after last run. This made me think back to weights and I thought it’s a perfect moment to work on my back and arms (so legs could rest and I wouldn’t have to put any pressure on my wrist).
So I did:
- 5 x 12 – standing military press (12.5kg)
- 3 x 12 – bent over lateral rises (2kg each hand)
- 3 x 12 – standing front rises (2kg each hand)
- 3 x 12 – standing dumbbell curl and press (5kg each hand)
- 3 x 10 – standing triceps extension (5kg)
- 2 x 10 – standing barbell curl (12.5kg)
And my arms were on fiiiiireeee!!!!! Did I say I had too long break? ….
I finished my training with a 10 min tabata from Popsugar Fitness (aaaaa push-ups! Had to modify those into planks… that wrist plus shaking arms after weights made push-ups impossible):
And a good bit of stretching which I’m very serious about recently cause I want to improve my flexibility.
It was so good!
Well… today apart from sore legs, I have also sore arms and back and even my ABS are sore a bit. I’m just thinking, should I do my workout today as I had planned or give my muscles some time to recover? hmm… I will probably do something light and a lot of stretching to ease the pain a bit.
And how about you?
