Thursday Pilates and Free Weights (At Home)
Thursday’s exercise routine, is very similar to Tuesday’s routine.
So, with my green tea made I will start my at home routine (see Tuesday for Pilates details):-
20 minutes warm up – Pilates (ABS)
3 x 15 lunges with dumbbells (Legs)
3 x 15 lower abs bench leg raises (ABS)
3 x 15 reps standing lateral dumbbell raises (Chest)
3 x 15 reps bench triceps dumbbell kick backs (Shoulders/Arms)
3 x 15 reps standing bicep dumbbell curls (Arms)
3 x 15 reps seated dumbbell curls (Arms)
3 x 30 sit ups (Abs)
Again I feel I should put my “disclaimer” here and say that again I have been doing this for many years and it suits me. What suits you may not be this and you should always seek professional advice before embarking on a fitness routine.
My Thursday fitness routine takes roughly 1.5 hours. When I mention above that dumbbell’s are used, the weights I use are suitable for me so as to provide a level of resistance and to make my muscles work, but I’m not overly exerting myself. I don’t want any pulled muscles or damage.
