1st June, 2012 — Workout — Pushups & Leg Raises

Yay Friday! Gotta get my workout in though. Kind of chilly out today, its been overcast and a bit rainy most of the day. I may go inside here for the Leg Raises.

Just a note, again with my of my workouts, I’ll be taking 120 second rests between sets, and 150 second rests between work sets.

Man my shoulders were burning like crazy after that first work set of Close Pushups. About the 17th rep I knew I had gotten 18 last time I did it, so that drove me to want to get 20 this time. As long as I’m progressing, I’ll stay motivated! My triceps are definitely tight and burning a little after that one though.

Boo, it decided to start raining on me so I had to bring my workout in to the back room to finish it up – my computer doesn’t mix well with the rain!


I’m only taking 30 second breaks for the warmup on Straight Leg Raises. I’m thinking next week I’ll be ready for the next step in the Leg Raise series – The Hanging Knee Raise!

For this last set I’m going to push myself and see if I can get it to over 20 again. It’s the last set, might as well go big or go home ya know?

Glad I pushed myself, because after the 12th rep my abs were on fire. Staying focused, and persevering through will always pay off – Make sure that form’s good though!

Check back tomorrow for the kick A footage of me working out! I know that’s the only real reason you guys follow me along 😉
