Getting Strong

18 Jan

Yesterday’s workout consisted of 60 mins on the bike followed by an easy mile on the treadmill. Since I was so busy last week with my new training plan I wasn’t able to go to my usual Strong classes or Pilates, which resulted in me feeling like I had a weaker core during my running. So last night after my normal workout I took a Strong class… man I could tell I hadn’t been for a while! The Strong class (@ 4 seasons) consists of very high rep counts (between 75 and 100 per exercise) with hand weights ranging from 4 to 8 lbs. We also use the Reebok Deck and yoga mats. The exercises included are chest press, shoulder press, tricep kick-backs, bent-over row, push-ups, sit-ups, squats, lunges, bicep curls, tricep extension (aka skull crushers) and a few other random exercises. Needless to say, I’m pretty whooped once I’m done with this class. Its something that I hope to squeeze in my schedule twice a week…. Tonight is a killer hill workout and Pilates 🙂

Bike – 60 mins
Run – 1 mile easy off the bike (9:15)
