Workout B: Days 2 & 5

Hey, Bloggy Friends!

Here we are, moving right along with our six day workout plan. The exercises in Workout B should be accomplished on the 2nd and 5th day of the regimen. Now, let's get to it!

Love, Josh




Exercise 1: Tricep Moves with Knee Raises



With feet shoulder-width apart, arms bent at the elbows, and the weights in front of your shoulders, drop your right hand down and raise your arm back while lifting your left leg until your thigh is parallel with the floor. Return to starting position and then perform the move with your left arm and right leg. That's one repetition; repeat 25 times for one set.

Exercise 2: Lunges with Bicep Curls




A: Start in a lunge—left leg back, right leg bent with knee over your toe—with weights at your sides.

B: Push off with your left toe and raise your left leg until your thigh is parallel with the floor while curling the weights to your shoulders. Return to starting position. Repeat 15 times, then switch legs and do 15 more for one set.

Exercise 3: Bicep Curls, Knee Up, Eyes Closed




With feet shoulder-width apart, arms straight, and weights at your sides, close your eyes and lift your thigh until it's parallel with the floor while curling the weights to your shoulders. Hold this position 10 seconds. Return to starting position and repeat with opposite leg. That's one set. Repeat.

Exercise 4: Chest Presses with Legs in Air


Start on your back with both legs up, heels pointing at the ceiling, and arms in a chest press position (at a right angle to your trunk, bent at the elbows). Straighten your arms as you lift the weights over your chest while simultaneously opening your legs to the side slightly. Return to starting position for one repetition; repeat 25 times for one set.

I always comment about your videos (and maybe not enough about their subject), but these are really good. I like the way you have the close-up foot shots, the "eyes closed" shot, and how you intersperse the "assistant" shots. I guess b/c I make videos I am always thinking of this stuff when I watch othrs.

The exercises are great. I've never done anything that incorporated "balancing" before.
