A new weight lifting program for me

I haven’t been very good about blogging over the past week, but I have been good about going to the gym. I have a good routine going. I lift weights one day, do cardio and my sit-ups routine the next, then rest a day. This gives me 2 days of rest between any 2 weight workouts and between cardio/aerobic days.

Today I started a new weight lifting program. During the past 4 weeks I’ve been doing one exercise for each major muscle group. This is a good program for beginning weight training. Now I’m stepping up the program. Today I concentrated on chest, upper back, shoulders, biceps and triceps. Rather than hit each muscle group with one exercise. I did 2 exercises for each, basically doubling the effort for each muscle group. On my next weight day, I’ll concentrate on glutes, quads, hamstrings, lower back, and calves. As for my abs, I put those on cardio day. So far so good…..
