Notes: Last day of FB Body Building, today’s exercises focused on chest, arms and stomach. Feeling my muscles respond to the exercise combination, it’s a good kinda sore feeling.

Workout Time: 45 mins

Bodybuilding 3-Day , Workout 3
Bench Press/ Dips / Military Press / Lateral Raise / Cable Pushdown / Sit Up | Bodyweight / Negative Crunch

Exercise of the Day: Negative Crunch; ab exercise. The Negative Crunch focuses on the downward motion of the crunch, it is  a great exercise to shock your stomach muscle in a new way.

FitnessBuilder Week 4

Notes:
I didn’t do the treadmill run just 30mins on the elliptical instead. Today’s exercise was a sweat builder. Between the clap push up and the shotgun I was done. The clap push ups for me always work my cardio as well as my chest. I can do about 30 straight you can even push it harder with a double clap. Be careful if you miss a clap or the motion you can end up eating floor.

The Dark Knight, Workout 2
Treadmill Run / Squat Jump / Lunge / Clap Push Up / Shotgun

Exercise of the Day: Shotgun Ab exercise. This is one exercise that you will feel through the whole range of motion. It’s important not to short change yourself with this exercise. Focus and complete each motion to get the most out of the shotgun.

Notes: Circuit Training! I didn’t realize how brutal it could be, no rest just go, go, go!

Both Routines are circuits

Best Ab Exercises: Bicycle Crunch – Hanging Knee Raise – Crunch Swiss Ball – Hip Raise – Russian Twist – Side Bridge – Jack Knife – Torso Rotation – Kneeling Hi-Lo – V-Up

Dumbbell Circuit Work out 1: Split Squat – Bench Press – Bent Over Row –Overhead Press – Anterior Lateral Step Up – Weighted Crunch – Pullover – Twisting Curl – Kick Backs, Side Bend

Workout Time: 1 hour 10 mins

Exercise of the Day: Russian Twist I marked this exercise as one of my favorites. Fitness Builder allows you to mark any exercise as a favorite so that you can build your own workouts as you see fit later. I like this exercise due to the constant tension you feel on the stomach without using a weight. When the weight is added it gets even harder. Try it and let me know what you think.

Summary work out Foundation Dumbbells level 1. I had a solid work out. The mix of exercises left me feeling sore but more important not bored. For me the hardest part of working out is the monotony of doing the same stuff over and over.
