I know I may be the minority, but I love working out. In college, I always had a gym membership (to an amazing gym for next to nothing-thanks college!) and I still do, just now my gym is packed and full of silver-haired people (no thanks South Florida HAHA.)
You can find me doing yoga, circuits, heavy lifting and especially walking, when weather permits. For this workout, I wanted to do a quick and easy circuit. Use light weights and lots of reps for these moves.
This sped up video shows you all the moves!
Bicep curls (to the front) X 20 reps X 3 sets
Bicep curls (to the side) X 20 reps X 3 sets
Two-handed tricep extensions X 20 reps X 3 sets
Alternating hands tricep extensions X 20 reps X 3 sets
Use 5 pound weights to start or whatever feels good to you. If you can, use 8 pound weights but keep it under 10.
This lighter weights higher reps workout is very “girly,” but I love it. As much as I would rather be heavy lifting, these types of workouts feel better to my body. Did you workout today?
