A New Routine

I have been pondering for a couple of weeks on designing myself a new workout. This is not my cardio workout but more so my strength training one. I have been under the weather for a while...way UNDER the weather but thankfully just ABOVE pushing up daisies!!! This is workout number 3 for me. The first was wild, crazy, and made me puke! I soon decided about week 3 that it sucked and I was done with that. So I slowly evolved into workout number 2 after some in home instructions and guidance from my Mr. Trainer Extraordinaire. So workout number two has served its purpose and it is a keeper. However, I just want to add some other things in that I think have been missing. This is currently not trainer approved...apparently he can't work his new phone yet and hasn't located his computer recently. Anyways here is my disclaimer; I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE for ANY INJURIES!!!!!!! YOU yes YOU ARE! So listen to you body!
At some point I will back up and add in workout number 2 but for now here is number 3. Which is really the one you should begin with to begin with! Know what I mean??? If not you are not alone. How about a nice ...START HERE!!! Well then again you decide. This one is more standing and sitting in a chair as apposed to sitting and laying in the floor. Sorry for any confusion!!! I am so new to this.
Exercises for Balance, Flexibility and Strength...designed with the 200 lb + groupies in mind. But generally for anyone. Oh and lets get this clear....The names of these exercises may not be the same for everybody everywhere. I learned that right from the start which drove me nuts while looking online for NAMES of moves and exercises and such....Oh and this is the shortened version. I have my own number of sets and reps listed as well as what muscle groups are being worked. I did not include those. Sorry...but each person is their own person and has their own abilities and if I list mine then you may try to copy it and could get hurt...SO LISTEN to your own body!!!
Now.....all that said:
Towel Stretch
Wall Lean
Wall Push-ups
Thigh Stretch
Toe Points
One-Legged Stance
Hip Flexion
Heel Toe Gait ( drunk man's walk )
Military Press
Lateral Raises ( arms )
Upright Row
Toe Stands
Hip Extensions
Lateral Leg Raises
Seated Curls
Knee/ Leg Extensions
(one the floor) Groin stretch ( yes it is funny...but don't go there)
Full Body Stretch ( on back )
Sit or just continue to snooze on ya back....for more prayer
and Finally Relax and Meditate.....Thank God for your Health and Body
Imagine Fat MELTING off of you...Smile!
Do it all over again.....tomorrow!!!!

Only took me about 25 I added part of Workout #2 for an additional 5 minutes. Little OCD issue and I was not stopping at 25 minutes. Goodness that is an ODD number...NO WAY!!! Although I did bike for 37 minutes this morning...only cause I can't do math real well while trying to peddle at the same time! And for sure adding gum would have killed me!
As you can see it bores me to tears to just work one muscle I tried to work everything at least a bit. And so we are on the up and lower back and calves are aching a bit...So my muscles got worked!!! At this point I am in build and strengthen mode as opposed to the beginning where I was in the JUST MOVE mode. Let me know what ya think? Thoughts welcome!!!


  1. I think I need to come work out with you sometime .

  2. Come on over...wait your kids are still in school...I'll come on over to you!!! Set up my water station first though!! LOL!!!
