Workout C: Days 3 & 6

Hey, Bloggy Friends!

I hope everything is swell where you are today. Let's take a minute to send our best wishes to our friends in Florida, namely Charlie, Jeff and Trey. As you know Hurricane Fay is sweeping through, and that bitch ain't messin' around! Here's hoping the damage is kept to a bare minimum and she passes through your areas like a true lady should - with a little class!

So, today we are learning the final set of exercises in our 10-Minute Fitness Plan. The routine has been going by swimmingly for me, I hope you feel the same. Over the next three days take the exercises we have learned in the previous workouts and begin again with A, B, then C. When that is over we have a nice rest on the seventh day and are back at it again on Monday!

As you go along and feel that the exercises are starting to become too easy, add weight or extra reps. Always try to push yourself as much as you can - without feeling too strained.

Thanks so much for joining me in the workout. I look forward to continuing with it and hearing more about your experience. Have a good one. Stay safe and stay grounded!

Love, Josh



Leg and Arm Lifts


With weights at your sides and feet shoulder-width apart, perform a curl with the weight in your left hand while lifting your right leg until your thigh is parallel to the floor. Return to starting position and repeat with your right hand and left leg. That's one repetition; repeat 25 times for one set.

Side Crunches with Weight



A: Start with one weight held in both hands over your head, feet shoulder-width apart. (To increase difficulty, start in a lunge position with your right leg back.)

B: Raise your right leg to the side until your thigh is parallel to the floor, while bending at the waist to the right. Return to starting position. Do 15 on the right side, then 15 on the left for one set.
With weights at your sides and feet shoulder-width apart, perform a curl with the weight in your left hand while lifting your right leg until your thigh is parallel to the floor. Return to starting position and repeat with your right hand and left leg. That's one repetition; repeat 25 times for one set.

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.

Opposite Arm and Leg Raises




Lying facedown with your forehead on a soft surface, arms by your sides, and toes on the ground, raise your right leg six to 24 inches off the ground (only as high as you feel comfortable). At the same time, raise your left arm. Return to starting position and then raise your left leg and right arm. That's one repetition; repeat 10 times for one set.
