Ok so after lots of research after yesterday’s post I found these really handy workout videos. A lot of my issues with weight training is that I really don’t know how to do the moves when listed. I’m one of those people who really appreciates the “how-to” video.
Luckily I stumbled across these helpful videos call the Bond Girl Bikini Workout she totally gets it. I don’t want to be bulky I just want to be fit! So I’m going to be giving her workout/videos a try this week. I don’t know about you all but I prefer to be told exactly what to do and when. I would benefit from a personal trainer but alas there is no money in the budget for that one. Instead I find the budget friendly ways to make it work.
She has a 2 day or 3 day split. Since I’m new at this I am going with a 2 day split. She recommends Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday as rest days. Since I’m a runner I will be doing a long run on 1 of those weekend days. But here is the recommended 2 day split schedule. She also shows you how to do all the workouts with dumbbells which is great cause I don’t own a barbell and can’t always get to the gym!
2 day split:
M- chest, back, abs, cardio
T- biceps, triceps, shoulders, cardio
W- Off or optional leg day
Th- chest, back, abs, cardio
Fr- biceps, triceps, shoulders, cardio
So today’s workout (this afternoon after appointments)
Back & Chest, Abs & cardio
-Barbell row 4-5 sets 5 reps; 30lbs
-Standing dumbbell pullover 4-5 sets 5 reps; 15lb
-Barbell bench press 4-5 sets 5 reps; 25lbs
-Dumbbell flyes 4-5 sets 5 reps; 12lbs
-Cardio: Sprints on treadmill followed by steady state cardio (30 min total not including warm up and cool down) sprints= 30s sprint at 8mph followed by 60s rest 10 intervals; 15 min total
Check out her videos, they are super helpful and really doable. I think tomorrow I will break it apart and do weights in the AM and cardio in the afternoon.
Hope everyone has a happy Monday!
