So for the first time in over two weeks, I was able to head to the gym and get a workout in and man it felt good! I still can't do any running right now as my big toes are still healing from the in-office surgery, but I was able to get a cardio workout in on the elliptical machine. I did 30 minutes at a 30% resistance and had an incline of 5 out of 10. The total for that workout? 544 calories burned with a distance of 1.25 miles. Did I mention that I really miss my road work?
After that I moved on to my resistance circuit training. I wanted to concentrate on my upper body this session and I could tell that after two weeks of not being able to work on resistance training, I was not at my best.
Overall I did shoulders including shrugs, front and lateral raises and shoulder press. For arms I did bicep curls and the triceps machine. For the chest I did sets on the incline bench press, and chest flys. The last sets I did was for the back. This consisted of sets of seated rows on the rowing machine, rear delt flys and lat pull downs. The last thing I did was work on the abs.
It is a short summary of a 55 minutes resistance workout and I will, in a later post this week, post my full resistance workout, but tonight is short and the morning comes fast!
For now I am happy I can work out again and will be even more happy when I can start running.
Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the day!
