This week start my 12th week working out: 1.5 weeks on the Lauren Gleisberg Home Plan, then 10 weeks on my own plan and now on to the Lauren Gleisberg Gym Plan!
I started with her beginner phase despite the fact that I'm not a beginner because I knew I would be lifting heavier than if I were just starting out fresh and I wanted a solid foundation on things I mostly know how to do before I reach the things I don't know how to do (smith machine, barbells, deadlifts, etc). I also hired a trainer for an hour to hopefully walk me through learning how to do those things plus whatever else sounds good to him.
So even though today was a "beginners" workout, it sure didn't feel like one! My triceps are jello and I absolutely love it and I saved an hour of time by not doing cardio today and switching from my 30-minute yoga stretch routine to a basic 12 minute stretch. I'll just have to do the yoga one several times a week when I have time because when I'm not working, sleeping or eating, I'm studying and learning and that's pretty much going to be my life until I take this exam in August.
Anyway, like before I can't share the details on the full workout but it was a really good one, today was Chest, Triceps and Abs and I'm really looking forward to Back and Biceps tomorrow!
