Today, I had my first workout with Chelsea since I injured my knee.  My knee is feeling pretty good, but it is definitely going to be a long time before I am jumping in a cardio class or trying a BOSU.  I still am very week with lateral movements.  I warmed up with 30 minutes on a recumbent stationary bicycle.  My RPMs were low, but it felt good with my knee.

Chelsea decided on an upper body circuit workout for me.  Here’ are the details:

  • Push Ups on the smith machine (2 sets, one of 8 and one of 12)
  • Cable Row: 70 lbs (2 sets of 15, weight lowered on the second set)
  • Tricep Rope single arm: 30 lbs (2 sets of 15, weight lowered on the second set)
  • Bicep Curl DB: 15 lbs (standing against the wall, 1 set of 12)
  • Lat Pull: wide and narrow grips- 70 lbs (1 set of 15 of each)
  • Squat/Curl/Stand/Press combo: 10 lb DB’s (2 sets of 15)
  • Pec Fly: 45 lbs (1 set of 15)
  • Incline Chest Press: 30 lbs (2 sets of 12)
  • Crunches (2 sets of 20)
  • Core Ball Alt Leg for ABS (20)

I spent the evening at University Circle with the family.  We walked around, had a picnic and enjoyed the festivities at Wade Oval.  I’m tired tonight and I suspect my upper body might be sore tomorrow.

Next up: cardio tomorrow afternoon.
