FitnessBuilder week 6.

Notes: Feeling sore, call me sick but I like it. I love the pain, within reason of course I mean I am pushing myself just right. I am not an advocate of no pain, no gain theory. I am however an advocate of feeling a little bit of pain means your body is responding to the work out.

Workout Time: 40 min 11 sec

5×5: Workout 3
Deadlift / Chin Up / Step Up / Upright Row/ Reciprocal Incline Press

Exercise of the Day: Reciprocal Incline Press, chest exercise a really nice twist on a standard incline dumbbell press. I really like the motion of this exercise, keeping both arms in constant motion gives you the feeling of burning calories and building muscle. Marking it a FB favorite. ( FitnessBuilder allows you to build your own workout routines by marking exercises as favorites.)

FitnessBuilder Week 3

Notes: For the next three days I will be focusing on Tubing. Tubing is resistance training. Resistance Training is a form of strength training in which each effort is performed against a specific opposing force generated by resistance (i.e. resistance to being pushed, squeezed, stretched or bent).(Source Wikipedia). Day 11 has introduced me to a giant rubber band that can build strength, hey who knew.

Tubing Total Body, Level 1: Foundation, Workout 1:
Split Squat – Bench Press – Close Row – Overhead Press – Hip Abduction – Feet Up Crunch – Curl – Kickback – Hi-Lo Chop -Reverse Crunch

Workout Time: 40 min 58 sec

Exercise of the Day: Bench Press Tubing. A giant rubber band gives a whole new meaning to working out to traditional exercises.
