Workout A: Days 1 & 4

Hey, Bloggy Friends!

Are you guys ready to get fit and toned!?!?! I'm excited you're here - let's not waste another minute!

Below I have included diagrams of the four exercises we will do today. This regimen, like I said before is a 6-day workout program. The exercises we do today will be done on the 1st and 4th day of the workout. Of course, there is also a video below that provides a more detailed explanation of the exercises for your viewing pleasure!

Enjoy and let me know how it goes!

Love, Josh

Exercise 1: Opposite Arm & Leg Raises

With a weight in each hand, arms at your sides, and feet about shoulder-width apart, curl your left arm to your shoulder and then raise it overhead while simultaneously lifting your right leg until your thigh is parallel with the floor. Repeat on the other side. That's one repetition; repeat 20 times for one set.

Exercise 2: Lateral Arm Raises

A: Start with your knees bent, feet splayed, a weight in each hand, and arms hanging.

B: Raise your arms straight out from your shoulders as you stand up on your toes, your heels about two inches off the ground. Return to starting position for one repetition; repeat 25 times for one set.

Exercise 3: Jabs with Eyes Closed

With legs apart, heels raised, arms bent, and hands with weights in front of your shoulders, close your eyes and throw a jab with your left arm to your right side. Bring your arm back and then throw a right jab to your left side. That's one repetition; repeat 20 times for one set.

Exercise 4: Flies with Bridges

A: Start on your back, knees bent, feet flat on the floor, and arms with weights straight out from your shoulders.

B: Raise your hips until your thighs and trunk are aligned while bringing your arms directly over your chest. Return to starting position for one repetition; repeat 25 times.

I agree with Rick: these weren't too hard, though I did find keeping my heels off the floor felt kinda strange.
