FITNESS FRIDAY: CARDIO + STRENGTH


Yesterday I challenged myself, pushed my body harder to test my gains since I've returned to fitness. It was indeed a test but I surprised myself at how well my body and mind performed, at the strength and energy I now have. That's not to say anyone within 100 feet couldn't hear me panting...

It was a gorgeous evening; a crispness was in the air. Why not enjoy it and get outdoors?

I placed the kettlebell (10lbs) and weights (5lbs) at the bottom of the first row of stadium stairs. I left an exercise mat at the top of the last row of stadium stairs. Be sure to use weights appropriate for you. Walk vs. run if needed (I mostly walked). The stadium has four rows of stairs, thus I labeled stadium stairs as "4 sets" in the graphic. I also suggest substituting ab exercises that work best for you. I've found that what works for me doesn't really work for my husband. Warming up is key, as is stretching and hydrating, so don't skip those steps.

Don't know what an exercise is? Visit bodybuilding.com. There, you can search exercises by name and read descriptions and even watch how-to videos.

As a reminder, this is my journey in fitness. You're welcome to come along. But, I am not a licensed fitness trainer or expert, so please use your better judgment and consult a physician.

May God Bless You

  1. Tricep kickbacks, haven't heard of that one before but I'll be sure to check it out. I'm figuring out blogging one day at a time, but I'm curious as to how you created your fitness page like the home page, where you can make daily posts on it? Any guidance would be much appreciated! My brain is melting from all the research lol.
