So the boyfriend had to take his car in for scheduled maintenance this past Saturday so we decided to go to the gym across the street while we waited for his car. I went on the Elliptical for over an hour then we did leg press and free weights. What we did with free weights was basically bench press. You lay down on the bench, bring the weights down so your arms are parallel with your chest (like bench pressing), then you bring them up and have the weights touch. We did 3 sets of 10 reps.
I did this exercise with 20lb. weights. And OH…MY…GOD. My pecs were SO sore the entire weekend! In fact they are still slightly sore. I thought that by me doing 2 weeks of planks and pushups almost daily that I would be able to handle this, uh… no? Even though I was in pain the entire weekend I kind of liked it. It means I worked hard and pushed myself. Go me!
I feel like I am stuck in this limbo of 175-178 lbs. and I think that is because I need to do more cardio. Now I am going to have to force myself to get on the treadmill tonight after work before I do my Jillian Michaels workout.
