January 2018 Fitness Plan

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 snatch

DB push press

DB rows

(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,

Elizabeth
