First Day of Strength Training

Just running every other day isn't going to cut it for the Tough Mudder. So, I decided to start doing some strength training before work today.  My impromptu routine is listed below.  I will change the exercises as I do more research and progress in my training.  It was enough to break a sweat and elevate my heart rate, so I'm going to call it a cardio workout as well.

  1. 100 full sit-ups
  2. 50 push-ups with feet elevated 18"
  3. 3 sets of bicep curls at 25, 35, and 45 reps with 18lb dumbbells 
  4. 3 sets of shoulder at 10, 15, and 25 reps with 18lb dumbbells 
  5. 3 sets of lunges with stabilizing leg elevated on chair and 18lbs dumbbells in each hand at 10, 15, and 25 reps

  18. The title, of course, should be the name of the website, so set it as appropriate
    based on the example below. There are millions of websites published
    over the Internet and your site will just be another addition.

    However, the design elements can still be kept
    same, without affecting the user experience a great extent.

  19. A few things that can help avoid this issue are taking digestive enzymes before eating
    large meals, not drinking a lot of liquid before or while eating (this dilutes natural digestive enzymes and stomach acid),
    drinking a lot of water, and adding probiotics to your diet.

    Eating out, especially fast food, frequently can do harm to your health.
    However, it's also easy to lose weight, even if the process itself can be slow.
