Friday Workouts Are For Champs!

Isn’t it tempting to skip a workout on a Friday?   I always feel good when I get it done though — especially once I’ve gone home, showered, and put on a Friday-night outfit.  It just feels good to have the extra endorphins, and to feel my muscles working, when I’m wearing something cute.  Is it just me?

Circuit.  Repeat 3 times.  Don’t whine.

  • Medicine ball squat with 8-lb ball (x15)
  • Jog in place while doing overhead presses, using two 8-lb dumbbells (1 min)
  • Overhead press to obliques with 10-lb dumbell (x10 each side)
  • One-legged squats “around the world,” with 10-lb medicine ball (5x through on each leg)
  • Overhead Tricep Extensions 21’s!  Use 8-lb dumbbells (x7 just the first half of the way up, x7 just the second half, x7 full range)
  • Seated calf raises with 25-lb dumbbells (x20)
  • Windshield wiper abs (x20)
