in a previous post, i mentioned that the final two workouts of stage one of the new rules of lifting for women are fitness tests. well, here’s my result from yesterday’s workout…
deadlifts: 20kg for 70 reps
dumbbell shoulder press: 12 kg (each side) for 20 reps
lat pullovers: 12kg for 30 reps
lunges: 22kg for 25 reps/each leg.
side suicide jumps: 30 reps (this is modified from the original, since i do not have a stability ball)
i’m really impressed with the numbers from deadlifts, despite it being a relatively light weight. i am so happy to be finished with stage one. i’m moving onto stage two beginning the 26th of march (the book advises a week off from strength training). as well, since the weather has warmed up, i am going to be doing loads of jogging next week. it’ll help familiarize me with the new neighbourhood, as well. two birds with one stone!
