Super Fun Crosstraining Time!
Okay, that is a lie. I don’t think crosstraining is fun at all. If I could, I would just play tennis or ride horses, and call it crosstraining. But alas, I don’t have a tennis partner, and horses are expensive.
So! Weightlifting it is. The funny thing is, I used to love weights and hate cardio. The only cardio I did was step class.
I put together a rudimentary weightlifting routine. I use free weights, not the machines, because machines don’t let you combine moves (i.e., get the whole thing done as fast as possible).
3 x 10 squats with bicep curls (20 lbs)
3 x 10 lunges with various shoulder exercises
3 x 10 tricep dips (this is also a lie; I only made it through 2 sets)
3 x 10 chest press (15 lbs)
Various ab stuff. My core is pretty strong, thanks to all the work I put in after my c-section. I just combine different things until I reach 150.
This routine is fast and boring. And I use light weights–usually 10 lbs or so unless I am doing legs.
And I’m also trying this:
Has anyone ever tried Ballet Beautiful? I like it so far, although like most things, I think her claims of total body transformation are overrated.
