SimplicityInTheLBC "Energy and persistence conquer all things." - Ben Franklin
I hate doing weights. HATE. And even more than that, I hate doing weights at my gym, because invariably the weight room is filled with enormous muscly (usually gay) men, sweating and grunting, using stacks of weights that are often more than my entire body weight.
But I am aware that strength training and building muscle is an integral part of weight loss, so I am putting weights into my day. I am keeping my little 5lb. dumbbells next to my computer desk, and I downloaded one of those “break reminder” apps. Every 30 minutes, I get a ping to remind me to go do a set of arm exercises. Just one set of each. I’m starting easy, because I am super out of shape.
This will also be an incentive for me to cut down the time I spend on the computer :)
For my own reference:
- straight arm lateral raise
- triceps kickback
- dumbbell curl
- military press
- reverse fly
