I am excited about this challenge for 2 reasons….1. This fit right in with my April goals and 2. What a great way to hold me accountable!!
Today is also Day 1 of my new leg weight training. In the past months, I have trained legs maybe one day a week and have relied on running to keep my legs strong. Well this has not worked for me AT ALL and since being diagnosed with arthritis in my right knee and the Dr. strongly recommending adding more cross training to my training schedule, I have decided to train legs 2 times a week.
Today’s workout was:
Alternating Lunges= 3 set of 12 with 45lbs on the BarBell
Squat finisher -1 set with 45 lbs on the Barbell
Good Mornings-3 sets of 12 with 45lbs on the BarBell
Kickbacks with Bodylastic 23lb and 8 lb bands
Standing Leg Abduction with 23lb and 8 lb bands
1 leg bridges on balance disc-3 sets of 12
#rockyoucore-4 sets of 20 crunches and 1:00 min plank finisher
I work out at home and will be utilizing my at home gym equipment to help me achieve my April goals of stronger Abs and Legs.
My at-home gym equipment:
BodyLastic Resistance Bands:
Mat and Bar Bell
My April fitness goals are:
-Have a good race at The Cherry Blossom 10 Miler…celebrate my accomplishments no matter what the clocks/Garmin say
-Continue training for Zooma including a local race for my son’s school.
-Reduce running from 3 times a week each week to running 2 times and 3 times a alternating weeks.
-Increasing weight training days for legs and abs to 2 times a week.
-I am participating in the Rock Your Core Challenge #rockyourcore with Jill and some other fit-bloggers.
-Eat whole 30ish (After Easter) except for fueling purposes during long runs
Happy April!!! What are your fitness goals for April? Do you workout at home or at a gym?
