I decided today’s workout would be split – 25 minutes cardio – 25 weights. Lifting heavier weights this year is a goal of mine this year. I believe as we hit our respect years, weight training should be a priority ( if it wasn’t before). I am a cardio girl but am trying to make a change so that I now replace some of my cardio days with weight training. I’ve gone from 10s being my heaviest to now using 18s with some of my exercises.. Less reps but heavier weights. It takes time but its worth it in the end.
Warmup : Open/Close gates, World Greatest Stretch with Arm Circles, JJ, Lateral Lunges, Side bends with Calf Raises
Jog on over to the Stairs where we did 7s.
- Bottom – Jump squatsI
- Plank Jacks
On the way back to the senior Center –
- Side shuffles (alternating lead leg each 10)
- Followed by Knee bounds
- then jog
Now on to the strength portion – EMOMs for Lower Body and Core. 2 exercises in each round for 6 minutes total. Changing lead ( leg/arm) in each round. Audible of rep counts until I got it right! All exercises just used 1 weight for unilateral work. Brought all my weights for everyone to try and use a heavier weight than they normally would.
Core ( 8 of each)
- Plank Drag
Lower Body ( 6)
- Single leg DL
- 2 Squat with Good Morning
Core ( 8)
- American Hammer
Combo ( 8)
- Walking Lunge with weight held above head
- Side bend
Did a few stretches with 2 minutes to spare.
