Today was the first day of pre-planned strength training! Before I left my house, I scrolled through Pinterest to jot down a few strengh exercises, and I divided them into 2 circuits.
After a 10-minute warm up on the trusty AMT, I completed both circuits 3x:
- 50 squats (with weights), 15 tricep kickbacks, 15 bicep curls
- 20 walking lunges (with weights), 15 bent over rows, 10 front raises.
Thoughts from a newbie: I without a doubt would rather be running, but strength training is necessary to become faster and stronger. I didn’t feel like I got as tough of a workout as I wanted to, but two guesses: 1. I could have pushed myself harder and 2. My workout-making skill needs some fine tuning. I’ll lay down a goal of two strength training sessions a week.
