First Weight-Lifting Workout

May 7, 2013 — Leave a comment

I completed my first (in a very long time) weight-lifting workout today.  I incorporated swiss ball into the workout.  It was simple and not to complex, but it did get me sweating.  Here’s what I did:

      1. Squat press-ups with 2-5lbs weights.
      2. Chest press on the ball 2-5lbs weights.
      3. Overhead press sitting on the ball 2-5lbs weights.
      4. Press extensions, forward on the ball 2-5lbs weights.
      5. Russian twist on the ball.
      6. Push ups on the ball.
      7. Split squats.
      8. Back extensions on the ball, superman style (one set only).

I did three sets of each movement 8-12 times.  It did feel good to complete these movements.  It has been over two years since I did any weight lifting.  Boy did my body feel ALL of that missed time.  I proud of myself for working through it by myself.  I workout better with someone pushing me.  Off to bed.  Here I go now…
