Anyways, here was the agenda this morning:

Light (Walking) to Medium (Jogging) Cardio/Stretch: 13min.
Light, meaning that I began by walking then half way began to perform a light jog to warm up the muscles and get good blood flow through out my body. Great before a workout

Abdominals: 15-20min.
  • Superset: Jack Knife Maneuver w/ Bicycle Crunches: 3sets/15-20x
(I will be doing some more abs exercises soon. I personally don't think this enough for what I am trying to achieve)
Today was let day so we'll begin with Quads.

  • Superset: Barbell Squats w/ One Legged Machine Squats: 3sets/10-15x
  • Superset: Hip Flexion w/ Resistant Band Squats: 3sets/10-15x
  • Leg Extensions: 3sets/8-12x
  • Hack Machine Squat w/ Cable Kickbacks: 3sets/10-12x
  • Standing Smith Machine Calf Raises: 3sets/8-10x
  • One leg Dumbbell Calf Raises: 3sets/8-10x
(I went light with the Bi's. I like to mix in a least one upper body muscle along w/ my legs. Yeah I'm crazy!)
  • Superset: Resistant Band Curls w/ Alternating dumbbell Hammer Curls: 3sets/10-12x
Light Cardio - 13min.

You might be asking, WHAT IS A SUPERSET?
  • Super setting is an advanced training method in which you do two exercises, one after the other, with no rest in between. The exercises can be for the same muscle group or two different muscle groups, depending on your goals. The idea is to do one exercise and, instead of resting and doing another set, doing a different exercise and alternating those exercises for your desired number of sets.

Super happy with my workout this morning. Some of the Workout that I did for my legs and calves, I did without shoes, which helped out a bunch. To me it feels more natural and raw. Plus I have heard good things about working out barefooted so well see, as long as I don't stink up the place I should be fine.

So how is this process going for you? Have you started on your beach body yet?
