This week I started up my favorite weight training series again, Cathe's STS program. It's a 36-disc series for 12 weeks of weights workouts.
Here's a breakdown of what I did each day:
Saturday: Cardio Kickboxing (local studio)
Sunday: Dance Class (local studio)
Monday: Cathe STS Meso 1 Week 1 Legs (Amazon)
Tuesday: Amy Bento Kickbox Xtreme Combos 1-3 (Amazon) + Amy Bento Hi Lo Knockout Ab Section (Amazon)
Wednesday: Cathe STS Meso 1 Week 1 Chest, Shoulders, Biceps (Amazon)
Thursday: Amy Bento Kickbox Xtreme Combos 3-5 (Amazon)
Friday: Cathe STS Meso 1 Week 1 Back, Triceps (Amazon)
The weights workouts this week all run around 50 minutes so I didn't have to do a lot of modifying other than substituting dumbbells for any barbell work. Later in the series there are some longer workouts and I always skip a few exercises to keep the time in the 45-50 minute range. I tend to lose interest and momentum after that long!
My notebook is a critical element for me to have an effective strength workout. I might be able to do 20 lb. bicep curls for 12 reps in one workout, but not for 21 reps in another workout and there's no way I can recall what I do in each workout without something written down. Some of Cathe's workouts have printouts available (here), but there are plenty of others I just had to create myself. If you have one of her workouts that I own and want the Excel spreadsheet for it, shoot me an email and I'd be happy to share!
