Day 5 – Flex Friday #1

My first Flex Friday photo….

My first week of weight lifting has consisted of…

Monday – Legs

Tuesday – Abs, Core, Lower Back

Wednesday – Arms, Chest, Upper Back

Thursday – Legs

Friday – Abs, Core, Lower Back

Saturday and Sunday will be rest days. Each work out was about 30 minutes with a 10 minute dynamic warm up at the beginning. I did workouts with lighter weight, just the barbell, or just my body weight, even though I could have probably done more weight. I want to make sure my form is correct and start out lighter since I haven’t worked out in a couple of months.

What I learned this week…

I need to work on form and coordination with a few things. My left leg is weaker than my right. My arms are stronger than I thought they were. Lifting weights makes me feel awesome. I am sure there are other things too, but they aren’t coming to me at the moment.

I wasn’t planning on pay a lot if attention to my calories and macros, like I did before, but after this week I really think it’s a better idea if I just suck it up and keep track of shit.

I have also discovered the Strength Camp YouTube channel with Elliot Hulse and I am learning a lot from him. The fact that he is freakin’ sexy as a mofo doesn’t hurt either. Sorry hubs!

Anyway, that’s been a quick recap of my week.
