Thursday Circuits

Today was circuits class with Chris. I expected my legs to hurt after yesterday's speedwork but they don't. They do feel a little heavy but other than that I feel pretty good. Next week I will have to try to do the full workout.

Continuing around the room explaining the circuits stations:

Biceps Curls with elbows in, palms out. I used 17.5 lb dumbells in each arm.

Side Planks. The picture on the right explains this station. I did about 20 seconds on each arm, alternating.

Dynaband Row. There are 2 bars running around the room, a high bar about 3 1/2 feet high and a low bar about 1 foot high. At this station there is a wide rubber band draped over the low bar. You sit down with your feet against the wall, and pull back on the rubber band in a rowing motion.

Chris came up with a new exercise today to end the class with, Basically, in a push-up position, with your feet as your pivot point, you moved your body 180 degrees, by walking on your arms. Basically if you started with your head to the east, you rotated until your head was in the west. Now do a push-up. Now rotate back the way you came. Now do another push-up.

Chris tried to have us do 15 reps of this but then stopped it because the room was too crowded. I got 4 in before it was cancelled. We then switched back to the old standby of 10 push-ups, 10 dips, counting down to 1 push-up, 1 dip.

Weight = 190 lbs
