Today I did an arm workout at the gym. I usually find a routine that I like on Pinterest or another blog (Blogroll coming soon!) and then modify it to what my gym offers and what I know how to do safely without hurting myself. I took a workout that I found online on bodybuilding.com and modified it a little bit. I find when I JUST do strength exercises I’m not getting enough of a workout. I like to sprinkle short bursts of cardio in between a strength workout I find to get my heart pumping so that at the end of the workout I feel like I actually did something. This is what today’s looked like:
Bench Press- 2 sets of 10 (just the bar) 1 set to failure
Incline Flies- 2 sets of 10, 1 set to failure
5 mins on treadmill- sprint
Seated Dumbbell Press- 2 sets of 12, 1 set to failure
Dumbbell Side Laterals- 2 sets of 12, 1 set to failure
5 mins of treadmill-spring
Triceps Extension- 2 sets of 10, 1 set to failure
Bench Dips- 2 sets of 10, 1 set to failure
Needless to say my arms felt like jello after. When I got home I whipped up some Prograde Workout. This is a supplement I take before and after working out. It’s a great supplement if you’re looking for something to take before and after workouts (it’s not just protein). The brand is pretty legit and it doesn’t have a lot of unknown ingredients in it.
Yum! Yay for my first workout post.
