New Workout Plan: Day 1

I ordered a few books I had on my wishlist last week and I received them a few days ago. Love getting a box from Amazon on my doorsteps…

Once of those books was The New Rules of Lifting for Women, recommended by Mama Pea on her blog. I started reading it right away and I’m absolutely loving the way the author writes. So I’m excited to start his 6-month weight training plan and decided to record it here on the blog, which will help me stay accountable and motivated to continue and keep up with it.

So…Day 1:

Squats: 2 sets, 15 reps, 20lbs

Pushups (knees down): 2 sets, 15 reps

Bent over rows: 2 sets, 15 reps, 20lbs

Step ups (2 steps high): 2 sets, 15 reps, 20lbs

Prone Jackknife: 2 sets, 8 reps

60 sec breaks between each sets.

So I was definitely breathing harder after this workout and was shweaty. Next day, had sore lats and front of shoulder. Nothing in the lower body, which tells me to increase the weight. On to workout B tomorrow!
