Today I went to pole but afterwards just wanted a little extra workout. So after lunch, I went to the gym and finished out arms and abs. I bumped my reps back up to 15-20 to lean a little bit so it looked like this:
20 bicep curls
15 rows to tricep kickback
20 lateral shoulder raises
20 front single-arm flys/arm
15 overhead tricep extension
15 cable pull-downs (put a straight bar on the cable just above shoulder height, hold bar with hands and pull down to your thighs, keeping your arms straight)
20 incline sit-ups with weight
40 Russian Twists with weight plate (so 20/side)
20 crunches with plate
20 reverse crunches
40 bicycles (20/side)
I think my August goal is going to be kicking back up my cardio… never been my strong point (I get bored). But I like interval runs so I’ll probably start adding those and elliptical in and go from there. I think the biggest thing with cardio is finding something you enjoy to do, otherwise you probably won’t stick with it for 30-45 min.
Also, I wanted to show a little bit of what I’ve been working on in pole. It’s a ton of body resistance and core, which is why I like it. Here’s a picture of my latest trick I learned, it’s called the dragonfly.
