Workout Wednesday-Beginner/Intermediate Weight Lifting Routine

31 Jul

Hello, hello! I am linking up with Megan today for Workout Wednesday. It’s perfect timing because I am off today (until I start my new job next week), and I have recently started a new workout plan that I want to share. The plan that I’m on was created for me by my hubby who is an aspiring personal trainer. He is in the process of studying for the exam and he works out six days a week. So proud of him!

I would say I am in the beginner/intermediate level in the fitness world. My main goal right now is to put on some muscle. I have lost a lot of fat recently by eating clean, and now I want to get strong. My plan is to start lifting weights three times per week. I will start with small and work my way up to heavier weights so I don’t injure myself. I have picked a Tues, Thurs, Sat schedule. This is my Tuesday routine which targets chest, shoulders, and triceps.

I take a 30-45 second break between sets and I do reps of 10. This is the first week of the routine, and I am really enjoying it so far. I will post the other two days of my routine soon! Let me know if you want to join me in my routine. We could help keep each other accountable. 😉

What types of work outs do you enjoy?
