12/02/12- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

There are a couple of different  strength training  focuses that help keep you from getting bored with your routine, and keep your muscles guessing what comes next.

1. Try training front side/back side- One day is chest, next session, glutes.  One day biceps, next back work...

2. Try a split training week.One day chest/triceps, one day- back/biceps, 3rd day leg/shoulders, 4th- abs.

3. 50's week; do 50 reps with low weight

4. Higher weight ( you have to keep good form, or lower the weight); low reps, 2 sets

5. Medium weight, 12-15 reps, and do 3 sets of each.

Change these ideas week to week and reap the benefits of strong muscles and lean shapes.
