Currently consists of supersets of:
- planks (regular and side)
- arm exercises with weights
I really think that doing supersets help a lot. Work the muscles a bunch and relax for a tiny bit. Work the muscles a bunch and relax for a tiny bit. It helps me build endurance.
Outdoor running consists of running a mile.
I usually do this lap through my neighborhood which comes out to roughly a mile.
Indoor running is based on time.
15 minutes is the current goal.
I hop on the treadmill and run at a 2% incline, ranging between 4 to 4.5mph.
That 2% incline gets the heart pumping FAST!
So far the last couple of weks have already helped tighten my arms a bit. Small progress, but I'll take it for what it's worth. To help, I've also cut down on my carb consumption. I've been eating salads.
- Chicken mango sausage from Trader Joe's
- Candied walnuts
- Dried cranberries
- (sometimes I'll add some cherry tomatoes)
- Romain lettuce
- Organic baby spinach
- Lightly topped with a raspberry vinaigrette
Next week, I plan to introduce pushups back into my cross training. And so I don't get bored with salads, I'll alternate between a salad and a sandwich for lunch. As always, accompanied by fruit, nuts, water and matcha tea.
Looking forward to another successful week of exercise.
