Strength Training

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about what I do for my own training. YES I DO GO TO THE GYM! I go through phases- sometimes I will find a class that I LOVE (usually circuit training) and go to it all the time, and sometimes I just lift weights on my own (or with my husband or any friend I can possibly drag along with me), and sometimes I stay outside and do running+ bodyweight strength training. Lately I’ve been lifting weights on my own at the Y. I love the room they have because no one is ever in it and I can pretend I have my own personal gym for mere 35 dollars a month. Here is the strength workout that I’ve been doing lately:

Box Jumps (18”)- 3 sets of 15

Bench Press- 3 sets of 12- 45#,50#,55#

Back Squats- 3 sets of 12- 45#,65#,95#

KB Swings- 3 sets of 20 (I have no clue what weight the kettle bells at the Y are because a lot of them aren’t labeled… oh well.)

Bicep Curls w/ dumbbells- 2 sets of 15- 12#,15#

Tricep Extensions w/ bar- 2 sets of 15- 30#

Chest Flys w/ dumbbells- 3 sets of 12- 12#,12#, 15#

Seated Row- 3 sets of 12- 30#,45#,60#

Leg Press- 3 sets of 12- 160#,170#, 175#
