I am doing so great with my workouts and I am loving them. Yes, they're hard and some exercises aren't my favorite but I love the general workout plan that I have and totally love strength training.
What I did need was some cardio that I didn't hate. I'm not a fan of cardio in general (unless it's walking/hiking outside) and it's been way too hot and humid for that plus I never end up breaking a sweat except for the aforementioned humidity, so I've been wanting to get a treadmill for a while now but knew it would have to be a used one and, once again as they have many times in the past, Great Northern Liquidation came through!
Not only did we get a very affordable treadmill that I am loving so far (it got here this morning) but they delivered the treadmill and set it up in one fell swoop. Now I just need to hope it lasts for a while because I did 35 minutes on it today and loved it. This is definitely a form of cardio I can do every day!
On top of that, despite loving my current work out, there were several exercises I wanted to add (but not make each workout day even longer than it already is) and several I knew I should add instead of avoiding them (like lunges) so after giving it some consideration, I decided to add a "C" day to the mix... Push/Pull/Legs and Abs Day "C" with the same amount of exercise I do on the "A" and "B" days.
I worked very hard on these plans and the exercise choices and I'm really happy with what I came up with. I will be challenged but not overdoing it at the same time and it'll give me more variety. And when things become boring I can rearrange the days and exercises, move things around and end up with a whole new basic plan.
So, as soon I'm done with the "B" days this week I'll be moving right into the "C" days. Woohoo for updating the plan!
