I'm trying out a new workout plan with a bit more structure, so hopefully it will be easier for me to manage all of my workouts and will hold me accountable to making time to fit in all of the workouts each week.
It looks a little something like this...
Now, this workout schedule isn't set in stone. What I want to get out of this schedule is...
It took me just under 35 minutes to run 5k and I spent 25 minutes doing my bicep/tricep workout. I chose six exercises (3 bicep, 3 tricep) from the wonderful JEFIT app on my phone.
If you don't already have this app for strength training, I would HIGHLY recommend it! It's a great way to keep your strength training routine interesting with new exercises. Anyway... I did 2 sets of 12 reps at about 70% exertion for the six bicep/tricep exercises and I was outta there!
When I got home from the gym, I made myself a protein shake for breakfast. I combined a scoop of Bodylogix vanilla protein powder with one frozen orange, a handful of spinach, and about a cup of water to make my protein smoothie.
It was deeelicious! Now it's time for me to head out to the barn to spend some quality time with the girls and my girl, Ginny!
Questions: What does YOUR workout routine look like? Do you incorporate strength training into your weekly schedule? Have you ever tried doing 5-day split training? If not, would you?
