Finally, finally I get to workout again after my back mishap last week. I guess we all learn from our mistakes and I learned that my body is not as young as I feel. Sometimes, when I am doing a new exercises maybe I shouldn’t take it to the max right away. So, after a week of no exercise, I am back to working out. But I do not think that I will be stepping on the scale this week. I really ate too many snacks last week. Good thing I have started the Meal Plan.
Elliptical 35 minutes on Cross-training with a resistance set between 9-12 and high variying from 3-20, switching redirection from forward steps to backward steps every 1000 strides. Burned over 400 calories.
Chest Low Intensity/High Rep Workout
I noticed when I did the Low Intensity/High Rep Workout I started to feel fatigued at 20, but could go to 25 reps. I believe that is the reps you are looking to do when you consider it a high rep workout. You will notice that I did the same routine as I did when I did the Power Workout, I just changed the weight amount and increased the reps. After I complete all body parts doing the Low Intensity workout I will do the same routine again with the Power Workout. After completing that week then I will come up with a new routine but use the same focus 1 week Power Work out, 2nd week Low Intensity/High Rep workout followed by Power Week again.
