I’m so excited to start a new series to share with you.  Since I started walking and eventually running back in October 2010, I also started working out more faithfully with arm weights, as well as doing other forms of strength training for my lower body and core.  Along with running, I’ve also become pretty much addicted to working out and exercising, too.  I’ve learned how to workout with weights and I’ve also learned how to still get in a good work out without weights (when I’m on vacation, etc.)

Every so often I’ll be posting my Workout of the Day (WOD).  Workouts are done using 10 pound dumbbells (when I started a year ago, I started with 3-5 pounders) 2-3 times a week and take 20-30 minutes for the complete routine. Now remember I’m not a trainer in the least, so take my advice with a grain of salt….use my own workouts as your guide to get you started with your own routine and whatever works best for you.

I look forward to working out with you!

Here’s what I did today.

I did two sets of this full body series and 15 reps of each exercise with a 1-minute break in between groups.

You may also find a link/explanation of each exercise on my the new Workout Library Page.
