Cardio Party Remix 5 Minutes.

Should do more cardio but I’m not used to it at the moment and am restarting this daily exercise thing yet again… so we’ll do what we can til body is sweating to max or hurting (or we just run out of time etc.)

Dumb bell exercises…

below is copied from fitocracy:

will edit later with more…
Seated Dumbbell Curl

Sit on a flat bench with a dumbbell on each hand being held at arms length. The elbows should be close to the torso. Rotate the palms of the hands so that they are facing your torso. This will be your starting position. While holding the upper arm stationary, curl the weights and start twisting the wrists once the dumbbells pass your thighs so that the palms of your hands face forward at the end of the movement. Make sure that you contract the biceps as you breathe out and make sure that only the forearms move. Continue the movement until your biceps are fully contracted and the dumbbells are at shoulder level. Hold the contracted position for a second as you squeeze the biceps. Slowly begin to bring the dumbbells back to the starting position as your breathe in and as you rotate the wrists back to a neutral grip. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
Dumbbell Floor Press
While laying on the floor, hold two dumbbells roughly shoulder distance apart parallel to your chest. Push upwards until arms are extended. Smoothly lower the weights until they are back in the starting position.
Dumbbell Split Squat
Stand with dumbbells grasped to sides. Position feet far apart; one foot forward and other foot behind. Squat down by flexing knee and hip of front leg. Allow heel of rear foot to rise up while knee of rear leg bends slightly until it almost makes contact with floor. Return to original standing position by extending hip and knee of forward leg. Repeat. Continue with opposite leg.

Incline Dumbbell Row

Lie, face down on the incline bench with the dumbbells on the floor, one underneath each extended arm. Pick each DB up with arms extended for your starting position. Row the DBs upward at the same time, bending your elbows as far as they can bend, while pinching your upper back. Slowly return the DBs down towards the floor in a controlled motion.

Dumbbell Squat Clean

Complete a Clean. Once the dumbbells are cleaned, perform a squat

Dumbbell Split Clean

Hold dumbbells at your sides with your feet hip-width apart.
Explode the dumbbells up so that the weight is just above your shoulders and palms facing your head. Bring dumbbells back down to your thighs. Then repeat.

Dumbbell Lateral Row

Hold a dumbbell in each hand with arms fully extended at your sides and palms facing each other. Slowly extend your elbows out away from your body as you pull the dumbbells up towards the top portion of your chest while keeping them close to the sides of your body.

 

Change takes time…

Change takes time, and effort… but it definitely doable.

Set alarm for 4, then reset it to 5… woke up at 4:07 or so and so did some exercises today…

20 bench press x 100 lbs

curls x 20 (9.4 lbs?)

fly x 10 (9.4 lb?)

upward dumbell extension (or whatever the heck that is called) 9.4 lb x 20

Did not do cardio this morning but if I can start getting up early enough and doing this stuff more often may tomorrow?

Also moved my blood sugar tester to kitchen… part of the reason (other than cost) that I don’t use it daily is it’s in the dark bedroom and I don’t want to wake everyone else up… if it’s in the kitchen next to the calendar where I’m going to start writing this stuff down too I may as well use it. 🙂

Starting things up again…

On the weekend I mowed and used the weed eater… We have a very steep front hill now so weed eating uses a heck of a lot of muscles as it’s a balancing act to keep myself from falling on the concrete below.
