November’s Fit Point: My #1 Tip for Holiday Eating
Posted Jan 06 2011 10:59pm
I thoroughly enjoyed today’s workout! It was an upper body dumbbell workout done circuit style and I loved it! I think I liked it so much because it’s really fast-paced and I was constantly moving. There were a total of 7 exercises that are completed one after the other and then you rest for 60-90 seconds. It says to do 3-4 circuits and I did 3 just to make sure I didn’t over-do it. I followed up the circuits with HIIT & steady state cardio.
Dumbbell Incline Flye: 15 reps
Dumbbell Pullover: 15 reps
Dumbbell Bent-Over Row: 15 reps
Dumbbell Overhead Press: 15 reps
Dumbbell Lateral Raise: 15 reps
Dumbbell Lying Triceps Extension: 15 reps
Standing Dumbbell Curl: 15 reps
My cardio workout was similar to the one I did during day 1 of my 4-week workout journal . I did a warm-up for a few minutes and then 15 minutes of HIIT followed by 15 minutes of steady state and a cool-down. My steady state was at a pretty slow pace but I increased the incline to 10% so that helped increase the intensity just a bit.
