Week One of Janathon Completed
Do I look like Superwoman??
Ok, week one of Janathon is completed! I didn't do as well as I hoped but maybe next week will be better. I managed to walk or run on the treadmill every day at least so I'm off to a good start.
Tonight I added 3.3 pound hand weights to my workout. I hopped on the treadmill, put it at an incline of 9, set the speed for 3.3 which allows for a brisk walk and then I pumped the arm weights for an entire mile while I walked.
I would do 3 sets of 10 reps on my right arm doing arm curls, then switch to my left arm and repeat. Then I go through and just do a bunch of different arm exercises. I'm sorry but I can't tell you the technical names of the exercises because I don't know them. But it's stuff like "raise the weight over my head," or "raise my arms from my side over my head," and "swing the weights back and forth as I walk." LOL. Real technical descriptions I know, but you get the idea - just do it continuously for the entire mile.
It adds a nice element to my work out, gets my heart pumping a little, burns a few more calories and works out my arms. Win, win, win!
