Lately I have been motivated to tone up. I bought a cheap "ab trimmer" from Aldi, on sale for $5.99, got my hand weights out and started my own workout routine at home, abs and arms. I was doing bicep curls, tricep extensions and sit ups and noting them in a workout note in Evernote. That was going pretty well for a week or so, I could really see a difference when I practiced the advanced Bikram class, I was able to do a lot more. This was motivating.
Today I was suppose to workout at the gym with a friend, neither of us really know what to do so after researching a few things online I came up with a workout routine to target the areas we really wanted to focus on, legs, abs and arms. As it turns out we didn't get to workout so I tried the routine at home. I skipped the running part because it is raining in Dallas and I already took a 90 minute Bikram class.
Below is the workout routine. Try it, let me know if you like it.
A few notes about the workout. I put the weight I used and the number of reps in each set, feel free to modify. I'm not a trainer so some things I do might be a little weird. For example, I don't know why I do bicep curls from the front and side, I just feel like it does slightly different stuff. All I know is my biceps are definitely more defined than two weeks ago!
