IT's towards the end of the year and I want to start the new years to a good start.
Like a lot of people I have decided to start going to the gym.
SO, does anyone have any work outs that would help out.
Definately do weight/resistance training. Do NOT just do cardio. Many women are afraid of lifting moderate-heavy weights because they're afraid of bulking up and looking like bodybuilders...not true. Being able to lift heavier has helped me alot in the OR. Example of my workout
Day 1-Back/Biceps/Abs/30 minutes cardio
Day 2-60-90 minutes cardio
Day 3-Legs (lunges and squats kick your butt literally)
Day 4-Chest/Triceps/Abs/30 minutes cardio
Day 5-60-90 minutes cardio
Core training is great since we use our backs alot. Stability balls work pretty well.
I usually change my routine so my muscles don't adapt or so i don't get bored. They need to be stimulated by changing your routine every 3 months or so. Good luck!
