I haven’t done an update on my own fitness for awhile – I’ve made some improvements and changes so I’ll share those now.
As many of you know, my home gym consists of a pair of 35# dumbbells, a door frame pull-up bar, and gymnastics rings. In my opinion that is the best combination. I’ve been working out consistently 4-5 times per week. Sometimes I alternate upper and lower body workouts when I’m exercising 3+ days in a row, otherwise I just alternate doing total body workouts every other day, and stretching and foam rolling on my rest days (working on consistency).
My upper body workouts are usually a combination of some of the following sets:
5 sets of 8 ring dips
5x 30 seconds ring support hold
5x 8 pull-ups
5x 10-15 push-ups
DB push press
(for the dumbbell exercises I typically do 3-5 sets of 8 reps but when I haven’t lifted in awhile those numbers go down to avoid injury)
My favorite go-to leg exercises are:
100 hip bridges
100 donkey kicks
100 squat jumps
100 walking lunges
It’s pretty simple, but it’s working for me with my schedule for now. I’ve really been itching to get into running lately so I might be trying that soon, but I need to get some reflective gear so I can do it safely on some main roads where I live.
Til next time,
