today's work out marked my 6th day in a row of exercising (virtual high fives are being accepted). I've taken the past 2 days off from running and have found ways of working out other than jumping onto a treadmill (who would've thought).
yesterday I took a 90 minute yoga class at Yoga One. the room was heated to approximately 92 degrees, which was eerily similar to what the temperature has been in Charlotte recently. after a few weeks off from yoga I definitely struggled during the class but felt much better once it was over.
today I did some cardio on the seated bike and completed 4 miles in 20 minutes. then I continued my work out with some weight training. I haven't worked out legs (aside from running) in so long that I figured I would do a few of the machines. granted I realize that the best exercises for working out your legs are squats and lunges but I hate both of those. instead I did the following:
- leg extensions (quadriceps) - 3 sets of 10 reps, set at 50 pounds
- leg press (quadriceps) - 3 sets of 12 reps, set at 100 pounds
- prone leg curl (hamstrings) - 3 sets of 10 reps, set at 50 pounds
