Chelsea is on a “new exercise” kick with me.  We have been doing lots of ab and core exercises for the past couple of weeks.  Today was no exception.  I warmed up on the ESpinner for 37 minutes before my training session.

The session included:

  • Incline Bench: abs/squeeze ball, curl and extend – I ended up doing 3 sets of 4 and one set of 5.  This were extremely difficult.  I’m definitely going to be practicing these.
  • Bicep Bar Curl: 40 lbs – 2 sets of 15
  • Tricep Rope single: 30 lbs – 2 sets of 15
  • Push Ups on Bench – 2 sets of 12
  • Shoulder Press & Sit: 8 lbs single arm – 1 minute each arm
  • Chest Press: 15 lbs – 3 sets of 15 (on bench)
  • Pec Fly: 10 lbs – 3 sets of 15 (on bench)
  • Stability Ball Hamstring Curl – just a few.  I have a hard time keeping my rear off of the mat while I am moving the ball toward my upper body.  This will need some work as well.
  • Cable Row and Squat: 70 lbs – 2 sets of 15 (machine in trainer area)
  • Floor Crunches – 30 or so
  • Alternating knee/crunch with medicine ball – 20

My abs are already sore and it was a GREAT workout!

Next up: playing a cardio workout after naps tomorrow.
