21-Day Fitness Challenge: Day 11

21-Day Fitness Challenge: Day 11

Hello, loves! Today I did arms and shoulders. My arms have been a big focus of mine lately. I've always wanted toned arms, but when I saw the bridesmaid dress I'll be wearing for a friend's wedding (off the shoulders) I knew it was time to kick my arm game into gear.

Some of these lifts I've done in past workouts, some are new. But just wait till I tell you what I did at the end of the workout — it was brutal — at least for me. 

I warmed up for 5 minutes on the row machine. I alternated one minute with an overhand grip, one minute with an underhand grip. After that, onto the lifting. And I did a bad job at remembering/writing down exactly how much weight I did for some of them, so I apologize!

Alternating cable curls: 8 reps each arm (16 total) x 3 sets 

Sitting dumbbell shoulder press at 20 lbs: 10 reps x 3 sets 

Overhead dumbbell tricep extension with 12 lbs: 10 reps x 3 sets 

Straight arm pull downs at 70 lbs: 12 reps x 3 sets 

Cable tricep extension kickbacks at 15 lbs: 10 reps each arm (20 total) x 3 sets 

Cable crossover reverse fly: 10 reps x 3 sets 

At the end, I did some interval running around the track. And forgive me, I can't remember how long this indoor track is. I jogged one lap, then ran two laps hard (not a dead sprint, just a good quick pace). I repeated that two more times to equal 10 total laps around the track. 

I was drenched in sweat, my chest hurt, and I felt like I could throw up — I'm definitely not in track/sprinting shape!
