I’ve decided that too many of my workouts without Chelsea are lazy and unplanned. The goal of having a trainer is to learn many different exercises that I can do on my own. Currently, I am working with Chelsea on Wednesday. I’m going to start doing a repeat of the Wednesday workout on the weekend or Monday. I’d like to fit it in on the weekend and leave Monday open for spin class, but I’m still a couple of weeks away from being able to spin.
I forgot my paper with a list of what Wednesday’s workout was, so I winged it. Here is what I did:
eSpinner warm up – 20 minutes
jack-knife ABS – 10 on each side
core ball hold and crunch (3 ways) – 10 sets
regular crunch with knees in air – 30
biceps curl with 10 lb dumbbells – 2 sets of 12
triceps cable – 12 each at 60, 50, 40, 30, 20 pounds in a row
cable row in squat position – 15 at 40 lbs, second set of 15 at 30 lbs
squats – 20 (used the high step for a guide)
I also stretched well at the end of the workout. I feel good that I remembered most of the exercises from Wednesday and I’m excited to have a better plan for the next few Mondays. My knee is doing better, but it’s not 100% and I’m determined to keep it getting better, so I am continuing to increase my exercise – cautiously.
Next up: massage in the morning. I had referred a member to the J back in November and this is my thank you reward.
