Friday – Strength training – arm day (biceps, shoulders, triceps) I’m not sure if I’ve improved but I think I might have; I wish my gym had 12lb dumbbells so I would be able to do those for biceps now but it doesn’t and that sucks – but 10 lbs is too light and 15 lbs is too heavy now. Hmm.
Saturday – Cardio: Zumba – so much fun!
Sunday – Rest
Monday – Strength training – chest, back, and abs. Tell me why I decreased in strength on chest since last week? What the heck?
Tuesday – Cardio in the morning – jog outside! It’s one of the last beautiful days out and I felt I needed to take advantage! Unfortunately, halfway through I started getting pretty bad cramps. I think I know what that means, oh joy. Plus I had to go to the bathroom really bad. I decided to cut the jog short. I made sure to stay active and walk a lot during the day though and managed to get over 11k steps during the day (aside from the jog).
Wednesday – Strength training – leg day. Yeah, pretty much killed it today. I’ve really been loving doing legs lately. Not sure why, but I feel the strongest in the legs for now and it’s awesome! I haven’t exactly improved in weight but I just feel stronger. My legs have never had this much muscle in them before. It’s an amazing feeling. Now to get the flab off….
Thursday – Cardio was pretty slow, I just did 15 minutes on the ellliptical followed by 20 minutes on the treadmill walking on an incline. All while reading a book. Pretty relaxed but it’s all good.
Do you ever find yourself decreasing in strength randomly?
What could be the cause?
