American Heart Association “Hoops for Heart” – Please Help if You Can!

Posted Jan 21 2011 10:51pm

A couple of weeks ago I began a new 4-week workout program to start the new year off with a challenge of some sorts but I’m already bored with it. If I’m bored with a workout I don’t get excited to workout and that is a really lame feeling.

So…today I’m starting anew! The workout consists of 5 lifting days during the week and Saturday/Sunday are cardio days. It’s a heavy lifting program which are always my favorite!

It’s laid out like this:

  • Monday: Chest/Back
  • Tuesday: Shoulders/Abs
  • Wednesday: Biceps/Triceps
  • Thursday: Quads/Abs
  • Friday: Calves/Abs
  • Saturday: Cardio
  • Sunday: Cardio/Abs

I might tweak it a bit as I go through it because I’m not one to focus on abs – or doing them 3x per week – but we’ll see how it goes.

Today’s Workout: QUADS/ABS

QUADS – 3 sets x 10 reps

  • Barbell Squats, 55#
  • Lunges
  • Leg Extensions, 40#

ABS – 3 sets x 30 reps (performed as a circuit – my choice)

  • Side Bends, 10# dumbbells
  • Decline Crunch (hard as hell! haven’t done these before)
  • Floor Crunches

Now that was fun! :D
